Make or buy cards?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Do you make or buy your Christmas cards?

I buy cards for my Mom, Dad and my husband's Mom but for everyone else I print them out to save money.

i buy the cards with the blank front, and some x-mas meaning inside, and decorate the front of the blank card.
i am bad to put words together, to make it feel special, so i let hallmark do it for me.
( last time i made a card, and wrote something, was for my BF, and didnt understand anything)

It depends.

If I'm sending by snail mail, then I buy cards.

If I'm sending electronically I make them.

Here is one that I made to send out last year. I haven't made one for this year yet, so I might end up reusing it again this year.

I made some a few years ago. But following years, including this one, I have just bought them.
It doesn't cost that much, I usually get a box of them -on sale.

I buy! I've made in the past, but it always ends up being a major project! I didn't pay more than $3 for each pack of cards I got this year I don't think. It would cost me more to make them! Besides that, it takes me long enough to sign them and what not.

That's pretty.

I have cards from 3 years ago that I never opened. I managed to get a few out this year for some friends.

That's original. I don't think I have ever seen cards like that before.

I normally have "specialty" cards made up, unless I'm hurting for money: if that's the case, then I'll buy the "cheap" cards. This year, since I now have a computer to use, I'm making them myself. I think it's just more special if you send home-made cards out.

Sometimes, I'll send an e-card - depending upon who it is and the circumstances.

I didn't vote, b/c there really isn't an option for me to choose from..

I just buy mine every year.With 4 kids and a hubby that works ALOT of hours, it's easier to just buy them.

I usually buy.

Last year I made my own, but felt like such a cat geek that I decided to go with the premade ones.

Besides I couldn't get the costumes on the cats...

That is what photoshop is for

I didn't dress mine this year for my cards, finding a santa suit that early to get printing etc and write in time for international mailing is a pain

Sometimes we have pro pictures taken and make cards out of them. Other years we just send store bought cards. No real pattern to it.
