Make your own holiday cards online

September 22, 2017

Personalized holiday cards are perfect ways to share season’s greetings with friends and family, which is why holiday greeting cards remain popular in the digital age. In fact, the Greeting Card Association says Americans send 1.6 billion Christmas cards each year; and other holidays continue to demand celebratory cards:

  • Christmas cards: 1.6 billion
  • Valentine’s Day cards: 145 million
  • Mother’s Day cards: 133 million
  • Father’s Day cards: 90 million
  • Easter cards: 57 million
  • Thanksgiving cards: 15 million
  • St. Patrick’s Day cards: 7 million

These figures don’t even include the number of greeting cards sent for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and other holidays.

Why send holiday cards?

People send holiday cards for several reasons, including:

  • Tradition
  • Keeping in touch with family and friends
  • They’re tangible, even keepsakes
  • They’re more meaningful, especially when personalized with custom photos and messages

Women drive the greeting card industry, purchasing 80 percent of all greeting cards sold. This makes sense, given the role woman play in family kinship. As Scientific American’s Krystal D’Costa puts it:

“Family holiday nostalgia is often rooted in the remembered actions of our mothers and grandmothers … Christmas (or holiday) cards have helped with the obligations of kin work. And while anyone can send or receive a card, holiday cards in particular do seem to be an exercise in family building.”

Indeed, holiday cards transcend the simple act of sending well wishes and are instead often viewed as portals to one’s roots. Sending holiday cards is rewarding for both sender and receiver, so don’t settle for generic boxed holiday cards.
