Custom Photo Christmas Cards are here!

That's right, folks! I'm excited to share my custom photo card designs with you today!!

Christmas is only 2 months away! Thus, making it the perfect time to start thinking about your Christmas card and photos you want to send out.

I have 10 new designs I've created for you that you can easily find in my shop. Each are designed with two sides but you can also get a one-sided card for $5 less. What a deal! You can view close up details of each side in my shop by clicking on the image.











Interested? Here's how it works:
  1. You purchase the listing for the digital file from my shop.
  2. Include the line of text you want at the bottom as well as your name, for example: with love, the Smith's, warmest wishes - the smith's, etc. at checkout.
  3. Email me at lesleyzellersdesigns{at}gmail.com and include the photos and side preferences. I also provide light photo editing so if you need a color photo converted to black/white, just let me know.
  4. Within 24-48 hours, probably less, I will email you a PDF proof for you to review. Upon approval, I will send you a high resolution print-ready PDF and JPG within 24 hours.
  5. Print anywhere you choose! You can print on your home printer or your favorite printer like shutterfly, walmart or kinkos.  Or online using overnight prints, 48 hour print or vistaprint. But, if you ask me, I'd go with Mpix.

And what's even better - you have several options with your file.
  • Do a single-sided card that can double as a post card. No envelope necessary!
  • Use a two-sided design for a flat card and step it up with an envelope.
  • Or you could even choose the two-sided design and create a folded card so you can write notes!
  • And, depending on where you choose to print, you can choose specialty paper options like pearl, recycled or extra heavy!

Good stuff?

It's about to get better!

For the last remaining bit of October I'm offering free shipping on all Christmas card orders!!!

Kidding! They don't need to be shipped, you're getting the file to print yourself. I just wanted to see if you were still paying attention.

But seriously, I'm giving you 15% off your order from now until Nov. 1 using the code HOLLYJOLLY2012! So, hurry over and get your design today! And if you don't have your family, children's or pet's photos done yet, no worries. Just let me know in the checkout when you should have the photos to me.

Oh, and if you see something you like and would like the text changed or a custom design, I am happy to do that too. Email me at lesleyzellersdesigns{at}gmail.com and let me know what you're thinking. You can order your custom card design right here!


Whew, that was a long post but I'll probably remind you about getting your order in again as Christmas gets closer. And in the event you can't remember how to find my shop, ahem recipeforcrazy on etsy, ahem, I've added a little button on my sidebar with all the designs and links to my shop.

It's just under the search bar and looks like this:


So, happy Thursday to all and to all a good day.

    1. Thank you so much, Jenny!! And thank you for the kind words on the welcome message. I kind of got addicted to chalk art after I made that, hence all the chalk art cards :) But no, I didn't do it on her board but I wish I had thought of that!!

  7. I love these Lesley!!! Are you SURE we can't do Wild Ink Paper Co. together?!

  8. My mine just came in the mail and they are so beautiful! Thank you !!!

  9. Good Christmas cards, I liked. I hope your shop will run until the end of the year. Since I want to make similar cards for yourself. I tried to download them http://www.poweredtemplate.com/brochure-templates/postcards/index.html and then edited using the editor. But I did not have enough patience. Maybe someone will do it, but I do not.

  11. Christmas celebration moments will definitely memorable for us with these trending cards. I like your designing. How we can buy these cards ? You can share other cards like wedding cards, satin business cards and birthday cards.

  12. Many editors say they cannot spend more than 5 minutes on a single roll of file, so how do they manage to handle all that work?
