The holiday season is upon us and while the art of letter writing has sadly diminished over the years in favor of all things digital, nothing beats opening your mailbox to find that someone took the time to send you a card. Return the favor and bust out your pen and a card that reflects whatever you choose to celebrate, and let someone know you’re thinking of them this time of year. Here are some of our favorite cards to help you spread the love around:
Stand out from the pack with this 3D card from Wit & Whistle. Your handwritten message inside will float off the page with the included 3D glasses.
Typography and the “12 Days of Christmas” carol? This match made in holiday heaven came from designer Erin Jang of The Indigo Bunting and her designs are now available on the Paperless Post. I dare you not to get the song stuck in your head now. (OK, so this is very Christmas-y, less holiday)
Is there any better way to celebrate the season than to eat, drink and be merry? I think not and this card from egg press says it all.
Simple, ombre gold to silver, block type, and letterpress? What’s not to love about this card from Flora & Fauna?
No message, just a simple cutout snowflake on 100% recycled kraft card. From Paper Papel Papier, it’s the perfect way to show someone you care in the dead of winter.
A hand-printed card by Modern Printed Matter to send people your warm wishes. I love how the silver letters fit into the mitten, all while being surrounded by the turquoise woven pattern.
Jolly – straight up and to the point. From Ruby Press, this all-white card uses no ink, just the letterpress impression to state its message.
What holiday is complete without a little family drama sprinkled with a dose of sarcasm? Leave it to Sapling Press to tell it like it is.
Karte Design Fabrik is so great at sticking to subtle designs for whatever theme they are working on. They are geometric, colorful, and modern, and it’s hard to pick just one fave!
Snowflakes and stars make really cool starflakes on this silvery card from Blue Barnhouse.
While we purposefully were avoiding any specific holidays, how could we not include this Dr. Dre-del card from Silly Reggie?
Another specific-y holiday one from Sad Shop that could not be resisted. No explanation necessary.
