What the Word Classic Means to Different People

The truth is, the word "classic" has different meaning to different people. When appending the word to holiday cards, some might picture a classically folded card—one with a photo on the front cover and a message (along with plenty of white space) inside. Others might harken back to the classic heydey of 4x8 holiday cards, often printed on glossy photo paper instead of thicker, matte cardstock. Still others might conjure a more contemporary classic design embodied by a flat, 5x7 holiday card that features a photo and a greeting on the front and perhaps a smaller photo and some errata on the back. No matter your choice, your classic holiday card will be ready for display on the mantels of your friends and family all through the holiday season and beyond.

Customize Your Classic Holiday Card

Once you've selected a colorful, interesting template for your classic holiday card, start customizing it to make it unique to you and yours. First, upload a photo or, if you choose a template accomodating a photo collage, a number of photos. Then add your family name, initials, and personalize the message to reflect your sentiments. Finally, make any other changes you'd like to the trim, fonts, and card color. You can even add foil to your card if you're so inclined by choosing personalized foil or foil stamping. You might excite, for instance, over the sight of a foliage photo border in pressed gold foil, really, who wouldn't? Adding foil to your classic holiday or Christmas card lends it a classy, elegant appearance with a lasting, traditional appeal.
