Christmas Cards, Online Or Offline

Aug 17, 2007
When you purchase Christmas cards online you avoid standing in long lines. You can roll out of your bed and order your cards online.

It frees up so much of your time. If you enjoy shopping in stores you can use the extra time doing the type of shopping that you like. Order them early so they can arrive early.

Do you know where to purchase the christmas cards online? Type into your favorite search engine the words christmas cards. Put the phrase in quotes and click away.

When I shop online I like to use the well known merchants. I already know their guarantees and various policies. If you are familiar with them also, read the policies just in case their have been changes.

You should have an idea how many cards you want to purchase. One for the long lost cousin who you send a card to every christmas.

Do you want to get different cards for different people? Or are you going to get a whole box of the same cards?

Did you know that certain sites will personalize your card for you? For a small extra fee they will personalize and send it for you. Be sure and take advantage of that service.

While online be sure to click on the card for a closer look before you purchase. Make doubly sure that the words have adequate meaning for the recipient.

When you finish getting the cards you want put them all into your electronic shopping cart. Have your own calculator handy to total the amount.

Make sure the totals correspond. Do not forget tax and shipping charges. Then submit your information.

It is best to purchase cards online from trusted merchants. That way you know the quality of the card you are getting.

Flimsy cheap cards do not portray the type of christmas card greeting you want to send. Shop for cards early online. You may catch a sale or a special.

Almost 3 billion christmas cards were made last year. Many are still stored away with the ornaments. Why throw them away? Use them for decorations and for making different crafts.

You can always send them to St. Judes Ranch. Thats a nonprofit youth home. They reuse your old cards. It is always best to call them first.

They may have plenty of cards for this year already. Here is their address: 100 St. Jude Street, P.O. Box 60100, Boulder City, NV 89006.

A great idea for the kids is to make crafts out of the old cards. Cut and paste the pictures and signs from the old cards onto other cards.

Grandma and grandpa would get a real kick out of the creativity of their grandchildren.

The children can cut out parts of the old cards to be used for holiday gift tags. There are so many ways that old Christmas cards can be used.

Some people just send ecards. Those ecards can really get creative and fun. Everything is done online. Some computer programs allow the kids to make ecards as well.
