Make Thanksgiving Day Family Photo Day

With the family together, Thanksgiving is the perfect day to cross “take family holiday photo” off your holiday to-do list!

Thanksgiving makes a great time to get the family together for a group picture. Include all family members or choose to just do a photograph of the kids or family pet. Either way, the harvest scenery makes a great seasonal photo!

Once we turn the calendar to December, every free moment is spent Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, decorating, and baking cookies for those countless cookie swaps. Don’t forget all of the holiday party obligations, and white elephant gift exchanges! With the flurry of activity in the month of December, it is no surprise that many families choose to take their family photo on Thanksgiving day.

Make it your family’s annual tradition and take your holiday pictures this year on Thanksgiving. Do your own photo shoot (indoors or out) with an inexpensive tripod if you wish to also be in the picture. If you’d rather leave this task to a professional, book an appointment with a photographer for sometime at the end of November. Many photographers will come to your home or an outdoor setting (like a park) making your photos a personal reflection of your family’s style. If you like the polished look of studio style photography, go to a portrait studio where they have many options for backdrops & seasonal props.

Use your Thanksgiving picture as your Christmas card this year. 

Once you have the perfect picture, why not use it as your Christmas card? Personalized photo greeting cards are becoming increasingly popular because they are affordable and easy to create. Simply make prints at a photo processing center (Target, Walgreens, Ritz Camera or your favorite locally owned camera shop) and slide those photos into paper frame cards. You can also have your photo printed directly onto the cards or use your own photo card templates to print at home. Whichever method you choose, Christmas greeting cards made from your Thanksgiving photos are a creative and personal choice this holiday season.

Santa Visit Photo Holders

Helping you make the most of your Santa photo events with custom paper picture frames.

The Christmas season seems to start earlier each year. Love it or hate it, Christmas is a part of our culture and a holiday that many people look forward to. Every November Santa begins making his appearance at malls, stores, town squares, tree lighting ceremonies, and holiday parties. He even shows up at restaurants for special “Breakfast with Santa” events which attracts the whole family for a morning of food and festivities.

All of these Santa events share one thing in common, photos.

It is no surprise that many people make it a family tradition to visit Mr. Claus and his elves for their holiday picture. His image is iconic, and having that special photo of the kids on Santa’s lap is priceless.

A photo folder imprinted with your logo or name makes a great frame for Santa picture souvenirs.

These events draw hundreds, even thousands of people to buinesses Nationwide, making this an excellent opportunity to connect with customers during the holiday season.

Some businesses chose to offer the holiday photos as a complimentary service to their customers. Other venues may charge for a printed photo, often times donating the proceeds to a local food pantry or charity in the spirit of the season. In fact, photos with Santa have become a popular fundraiser activity for many organizations.

Either way, presenting the photographs in an inexpensive paper or cardboard photo frame not only protects the photos from fingerprints & damage, but it’s also a great way to market your business or event.

There are two main styles of photo holders:

  • Event Photo Frames – These look much like your traditional picture frame, often with an easel back, making it a cinch to prop up the picture on a flat surface. Optional personalization can go on the window border or the back of the frame.
  • Event Photo Folders – This style holds the picture on the inside. These are especially nice when the customer is going to be carrying the photo home, as this better protects the picture. These folders also stand up on the desk for easy display. Optional personalization can go on the cover, window border, panel opposite the picture or the back cover of most designs.

Sliding an event photo into a paper frame or folder creates an instant photo souvenir! With your logo or event name on it, this souvenir also becomes a reminder of your business or event. What a great promotional product giveaway!

Turn Your Wedding Photo Into A Holiday Card

Share the happiness & joy of your wedding day with holiday photo cards.

The holiday season is a time for sharing memories with friends and family. While many people choose to share the highlights of their year with a traditional holiday letter, a picture is worth a thousand words! Chances are that your wedding day was one of the major highlights of your year, and likely a day where you both looked your best! Why not use one of your favorite wedding photos as a holiday card this year?

Wedding Holiday Photo Card

Hey newlyweds! Use your wedding photo on custom printed holiday photo cards, and fall in love with the holiday season all over again.

Photo cards also double as a great way to get a photo out to everyone that asked for one. And for those greeting card recipients who didn’t attend your wedding, its a way for them to feel like they were there.

“But we got married last March! Is it still okay to use our wedding picture for our holiday card?” Absolutely! As long as you were married within the last year, it is perfectly acceptable to share your wedding photo during the holiday season. After all it was a big event for the year, and Christmas is a time to reflect on those joys.

Remember to check with your photographer to make sure you have the rights to reproduce their photo onto cards. Some photographers offer custom printed photo cards as a service, so be sure to ask. If not, you can always take 4″ x 6″ prints that you purchased from your photographer and slide them into photo frame style cards. It’s an easy DIY way to create instant photo cards!

Wedding Photo Inserts

A pocket style photo insert card makes it easy to remove the picture and frame it long after the holiday season is over. 

Sending a custom wedding photo Christmas card is a unique and personal way to keep in touch this holiday season. With many designs to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one that fits your style. Happy Holidays!

Halloween Photo Cards

Take a picture of your little pumpkin for a spooktacular Halloween photo greeting card or invite that will put the TREAT into trick or treat!

Parents know that autumn is a great time for picture taking. The annual trip to the pumpkin patch (and the subsequent carving party), a weekend of raking leaves and of course dressing up in costume for Halloween all make for memorable photo opportunities.
While traditionally people send photo cards out at Christmas or to announce the birth of graduation of a child, Halloween is an unexpected and fun time of year to send out a special fall-theme greeting to friends and family. Create Halloween invites for your party, or make one just to show off your child’s costume!
Fun Fall Photo Ideas:
  • Halloween Party
  • Costume Contest
  • Apple Orchard
  • Pumpkin Patch
  • Pumpkin Carving
  • Halloween Wedding
  • Halloween Parade
  • Haunted House
  • Hay Ride
  • Raking Leaves
  • Halloween Birth Announcement
Tips For Creating A Halloween Photo Card:
  • Use a plain black photo holder card to make your picture stand out!
  • Gelly Pens (especially metallic) work great on darker colored cardstock. Use a pumpkin orange pen to stay with the Halloween theme!
  • Rubber stamps are an easy way to accent your card with spooky imagery. Choose a lighter color cardstock for most stamp inks, or use a highly pigmented metallic ink to stamp on darker papers.
