Design

The first step in making your holiday cards is choosing your design. We've got a wide selection of holiday card designs for you to choose from, whether it be a photo card or a holiday greeting card.

Each card comes with a sample message, but here you have the freedom to change the font, color, size, spacing and alignment for your text. Just highlight your text and click on your selection to make the changes to your card.

For photo cards, this is also the page to upload your image (.jpg and .png files are best). Once you've uploaded your photo, you can zoom in and out, rotate, and drag it to position as desired. If you decide you want a different photo, you can hover over your picture and click on the up arrow to upload a new one.
