Let me start off by saying that I’ve never been a “holiday card” kind of person. I’ve just always felt they were a little generic, expected; destined to live on a refrigerator for a few months.
But then MyPublisher — a brand new photo card/photo book/photo gift site — sent me some samples, and I reluctantly looked through them, expecting the same typical holiday cards. Then I surprised myself by actually wanting to send out holiday cards. Even more surprising? My husband agreed.
And it’s not the design or the pictures that sold us (although we very much liked them), but the unmatched quality. It’s impossible to see on the screen, but they have a premium paper that’s so thick, so textured, that you’d think it was letterpress at first glance. And for the price? You truly can’t beat it.

If I just saw this on the computer screen, I wouldn’t think I must have that! Yet when I saw this card in person, held it in my hands, I knew we had to order it. Here are some other designs to sift through (but keep in mind they have over 950 holiday cards alone!):
