8 Reasons to Send 2021 Holiday Cards

It will be hard to forget the years 2020 and 2021. Covid-19 affected our lives in every capacity. Perhaps these will not be years we remember with fondness and reverence, which is why I believe it’s more important than ever to send 2021 holiday cards to our friends and family.

We’ve sent holiday cards for years, and I can’t wait to pop my cards in the mail and ship them all over the world. It’s been a long hard couple of years for us all. We’ve had limited contact with loved ones, yet over the past 18 months, the world has continued to march forward. Babies have been born, people have married, people have passed, and children have grown. I’m looking forward to holding precious cards in my hands and seeing the beautiful faces of our friends and family, and reading their messages and news.

I’m thinking our 2021 holiday cards will represent long overdue hugs I’m sending around the world to drop in the arms of our loved ones. And Lord knows we could all use a hug after the past 18 months we’ve all been through.

Here are 8 reasons to send 2021 holiday cards:

  1. Travel has been severely limited, and a photo card is a wonderful way of ‘visiting’ when face to face contact isn’t an option.
  2. Holiday cards are a way to stay connected with family and friends all over the world.
  3. Holiday cards are a way to share special news and photos.
  4. People are craving connection having been deprived of social contact. Holiday cards are a way to connect.
  5. Holiday cards spread the holiday magic.
  6. Don’t underestimate the power of a warm sentiment during the holiday season.
  7. Holiday cards are a warm reminder that although our friends and family may be far away, they’re never forgotten.
  8. A beautiful card with an uplifting sentiment is a way of spreading joy and closeness.

I chose Mpix for our holiday cards. Mpix has an extremely user-friendly interface, with over 500 holiday card options. They offer many premium options that includes foil, folded cards, decorative shapes, and a variety of paper choices.

The well-designed website is simple to upload photos from your computer or your Facebook account, and Mpix saves the uploaded photos in case you’d like to use them later. Their cards all come with standard white envelopes, and for just $10 extra you can upgrade to colored envelopes.

The whole ordering process was simple, and literally took 10 minutes to upload the photographs and personalize the text. My order arrived within 7 days in a hard cardboard box, protecting my beautiful cards.  And WOW!  Just WOW!  They looked and felt so stunning and luxurious.

The ‘Modern Holly Jolly‘ design was one of the contenders for our holiday card, but not the one I decided to go with!

I could not be more impressed with Mpix  – they are the complete package for holiday cards and I cannot wait to send these beauties out to my friends and family.

Although Mpix offers return and recipient address printing on their envelopes, I like to add a personalized address label as the finishing touch to my holiday cards. I fell in love with these ‘Classic Party’ return address labels from erincondren.com.  They’re fun, festive, and  give my 2021 holiday cards that joyful pop I’m looking for to make them stand out in the mail this holiday season.

There are plenty of ways and traditions to celebrate the holidays. The pure joy felt when you receive a holiday card from a friend or family member will always be special during the holiday season. What are your holiday traditions?
