4 Easy Ways to Make Your Own Christmas Photo Card

Each December, we await the rush of holiday greeting cards. From friends, family, neighbors, and even the local business owner, we receive holiday photo cards of all sorts and designs. As a photo card printer, we take particular notice of the quality– especially when it comes to the paper stock.

But how are you to know how thick the card will be if you order it online? Unless you are familiar with paper weights, ordering Christmas photo cards online can be a tricky business. Don’t worry though, Studio Style has you covered. Check out some Christmas photo card paper comparisons below.

Cardstock Photo Cards

Our Christmas photo cards (flat, folded, and tri-fold) are printed on bright white 12 pt. cardstock. How thick is 12 pt. cardstock? About as thick as the average greeting card. Thick enough that you can clip it in a clever Christmas card hanging display, stick in on the Christmas tree, or mail to friends and family (with the included envelopes!). Pssst… Head on over to Pinterest for some creative Christmas card display ideas.Make Your Own Christmas Photo Cards

Engagement Announcements & Save the Dates

Most photographers include an engagement photo shoot in their package, or offer it as an add-on. Blank photo frame cards are perfect for engagement photos because the picture window showcases your photo without any distracting design elements. For wedding details, you can hand write the information inside, or we can foil stamp your text for you. Foil imprinted save the date photo cards are a classic, elegant option.

Photo Birth Announcements

Do yourself a favor and order your blank cards for photos before the baby is born. After your precious bundle of joy arrives, you’ll be spending so much time cooing to your babe and showing him/her off to visitors, that browsing for birth announcement designs might not cross your mind. By having blank birth announcement cards on hand ahead of time, you can just slip in your newborn photos and write out some quick notes to friends and family during nap time.

Everyday Photo Cards

Whether you bring home a new puppy, want to send warm wishes from your tropical paradise, or just want to say hello, blank greeting cards for photos are the perfect solution. Just insert your photo in the front, and write a message on the inside. Want to cheer up the grandparents? Slide a recent picture of your kids in the front, and let them doodle on the inside or cover the card with stickers.

Here are some other ways people use photo window cards:

  • Pet Photography: Adoption centers give these with a photo of your new best friend, and a brief message stamped on the inside.
  • Art & Craft Fairs: Not just for pictures! Insert small 4″ x 6″ art prints, pressed flowers, paintings, or even slim needlework.
  • A Long-Distance Hello: Perfect for sending photos to friends and family across the country, overseas, or even just on the other side of town.
  • Event Favors: Smaller than our standard event photo folders, we see event planners using photo insert cards for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteens, retirement parties, and more.
  • Personalized Branded Photo Cards: Professional photographers will add their studio name and website with hot foil stamping on the back of the card. These are a nice add-on to any studio package.

Whatever the occasion, whenever the celebration, stock up on some blank photo greeting cards. You never know when you’ll want to share a memory!
