Your options are endless with PicMonkey.com. PicMonkey is a free photo editing program. There is a membership that gives you access to all features. I’m a member and I think I pay about $5 a month for it. But just to make Christmas Cards you’ll be fine just using the free options. Or you could pay for just one month, so that you can use all the cool features to create your Christmas cards.
To start I spend a bit of time searching for card inspiration from sites like Snapfish or Shutterfly.
I get a few simple ideas (picture placement, fonts, colours, sayings etc). And then I simply recreate my version using PicMonkey.
Step 1: I start by selecting the third option ‘Design‘, and then select the card size I want. I picked 4 x 6 .
Position photo (s) where you want.
Step 3: Time to add your font. Select the “Tt” button on the left hand side. This will pull up a menu of fonts to choose from (as seen above). I tend to write everything out in one basic font. And then play around and change the fonts up. Just highlight a word and click on the new font you want for it. You can also change the sizes of the wording to make some larger than others.
Right now (Nov 2013) Snapfish has a special on 4 x 6 prints. 99 prints for just 99 cents! Use coupon code STARPENNY. So you can get 99 Christmas cards for 99 cents, plus shipping. Not too bad.
Always do a google search for coupons as well! I did a Google search for “Snapfish Coupon Codes” and found an additional coupon code for 55% off (I purchased some canvases through Snapfish too). For 2 seconds worth of worth I saved $38.95 on a photo canvas I ordered for a Christmas gift).
