You know the holidays are just around the corner when the party invites and holiday cards start arriving in the mail. Both of those came early for me this year with the Tiny Prints Holiday Party for bloggers, held last week at Reposado in Palo Alto. I had a great time reconnecting with friends, way before the pressures of holiday shopping and partying could affect my stress level, and it was a great chance to take a closer look at Tiny Prints' 2011 holiday card line. Since Tiny Prints has joined Shutterfly, we were also given some fabulous ideas for creating themed Shutterfly photo books as presents for family and friends. And it was a great opportunity to sample (okay gorge on) Reposado's amazing tortilla chips!
After introducing so many novel designs to their holiday cards last year, I didn't think they could ever top it, but this year's line up is just as great, if not better, than last year's. They have tons of new ornament card designs. How adorable is this one?
And this year, for the very first time, you can actually build your own holiday photo card from scratch. Just pick your card size, background color and photo layout. Then add photos, embellishments and text (you can resize and move pretty much anything). This is a great option for people who want full control over the design, along with Tiny Prints' great print quality and heavy paper stock. Think Tiny Prints is too expensive? Think again -- their prices can go as low as $0.69 to $1.99 per card. You can save even more with two great deals going on at Tiny Prints right now:
* Get 20% off your entire order with the code 20SAVE (ends 11/15)
* Enjoy five (5) free holiday card samples when you use the code 5HOLIDAY at checkout (limited time offer)
Disclosure: Tiny Prints treated me to lunch, a set of thank-you notecards and a code for a free Shutterfly photo book, which I will be reviewing in a future post. I am also receiving a set of personalized holiday cards as a thank-you for writing this post. The views and opinions expressed here are my own.
