I’m curious—what are folks here doing for holiday cards this year? Are you sending them at all? Do you design a card with photos from an online printing service? Do you choose a design that provides room for adding a letter, do you insert a letter separately, or is doing the card itself enough? Or do you just send a virtual card of some sort?
Long ago, Tonya and I designed our holiday letters in InDesign and had them printed, and when iPhoto came out, we switched to using that each year. We’ve been too busy to get cards out the last couple years and haven’t done anything since Apple closed its Photos printing service.
We do like receiving holiday cards from close friends and family (particularly when they include a letter), and sending them makes us feel good, but it is quite a lot of work. Unsurprisingly, the number of cards keeps dropping every year although I haven’t seen a concomitant uptick in the number of virtual cards.
