For all the procrastinators out there, it's not too late to design, print and mail holiday cards or invitations out to your friends, family or clients.

Psprint.com offers a one-day turnaround option for greeting cards and mailing services so there's still time to order cards for Christmas and New Year's greetings.

Freelancers and small business owners can't miss out on this valuable opportunity to stay top-of-mind with clients and partners. Here are some quick tips for printing holiday cards at the last minute:

Last-minute tip No. 1: Keep it simple
Don't get bogged down on design and miss your window of opportunity. Send a classic postcard with a black-and-white photograph on the front or a minimalist white greeting card with a foil-stamped phrase on the front. Less is more, especially when you're up against a deadline.

Last-minute tip No. 2: Get your mailing list in order
In order to take advantage of mailing services through a printer, gather up your addresses now. Talk to the print vendor to find out what kind of format they would like the list in. It may take an hour or two to check over or freshen up a mailing list, so budget for this task.

Last-minute tip No. 3: If you are too late for Christmas, make it about New Year's
Before placing your holiday card order, double-check with your print vendor that your card will be printed and mailed in time to arrive before December 25. If there's any doubts about hitting that in-home date, simply design a card that wishes folks a happy holiday season or a happy New Year instead.
