If you landed on this page today, you are about to read about one of my absolute favorite topics – super cute holiday photo cards! Every year, I pour over my favorite holiday photo card sites to find the latest and greatest designs to share with you. Mail time in December is by far, the most wonderful time of the year for me.
This year I found many companies really pushed the envelope (pun intended!) with their new unique holiday photo card designs. Forget the same ‘ole, same ‘ole! How about a card made out of real wood with a 2015 calendar on the back, a family booklet, or a card that is 3 cards in 1?
Please note, Tiny Oranges is an affiliate partner of all these companies, which means if you click through on the links and purchase your cards, I receive a small percentage. No extra cost to you – everything is as it would be if you clicked direct – it just helps me out and supports my blog so I can keep it free for my readers.
Without further ado, here are my…

I have been a long time fan and customer of Minted and once again, will be ordering my cards through Minted again this year. Stay tuned for another post on our design!
I love their wide collection of designs sourced from indie designers and their card stock quality is phenomenal. There are a ton of options for customization and customer service is top notch.
This year I am also taking advantage of their FREE designed envelopes and FREE recipient address printing. <-Just check out the cute designs! Squeal. Here is just one example of their cute envelope designs…
This year they rolled out brand new Booklette Cards that I am dying over that allow you to talk about your family with dedicated pages. They are absolutely gorgeous.

2. Paper Culture
Modern, eco-friendly cards and for every order, Paper Culture plants a tree. Love it! I also love their clean and hip designs.
This year I fell in love with the Instagram-y card pictured above. I thought it was very cool and a great way to celebrate the year past.

It was fun for me to find that Zazzle, an amazing website for customizable gifts (think bags, iPhone cases, pillows, posters, I mean you NAME it!) also has a fab line of holiday photo cards.
You can customize any option, and choose from a variety of shapes. Even cuter? Order matching holiday postage to mail your cards!

4. Love vs. Design
Love vs. Design was a new discovery for me this year and I was very excited to see all their darling holiday card designs. They are a wedding stationery company, so many of their cards feature designs for couples, but they have many designs that would be perfect for families.
All of their cards can be customized with your wording, photo(s), font and color selection and all orders include 3 free proofs, so you can make sure your design is just how you want it.

6. Tiny Prints
Of course, right? Yes, Tiny Prints is a long time favorite of many, and this year they really pulled out the stops with two awesome new design features.
1. Letterpress holiday cards! Letterpress printing makes me drool. I’m not kidding. There is something just so classic and luxurious about classic letterpress. Beautiful.
2. Laser-cut holiday cards! Add an element of interest with a card design that features laser cuts. Did I say unique or what?!
Designs shown above #6: Cut Out Joy (laser-cut) & Holly Jolly Charm (letterpress)

7. Artifact Uprising
Talking about designs that make me drool, the whole entire Artifact Uprising site makes me drool.
The site offers the most beautiful photo gifts for pretty much everyone on your list. Beautiful photo books, Instagram books, calendars, and more.
Their holiday photo cards follow the same, simple and tasteful designs.
One unique holiday photo card that caught my eye this year is the 3-in-1 holiday card design they offer (pictured above #7). This is the first holiday card that can truly be repurposed!
With perforated seams, the 3-in-1 card consists of three parts: photo print, gift tag and greeting card.
Your family and friends can tear away the photo for display year round and use the gift tag for holiday gifts. Clever.

8. Pinhole Press
Pinhole Press was another new company I found this year and really loved. Offering beautifully simple photo cards, I loved their different collection of collage photo cards.
The Merry Christmas design collage shown above gives you the opportunity to display 18 photos in your card. I think it would be a very cute idea to include family photos all throughout the year in one of their collages.
Worth a peek for sure.

9. Night Owl Paper Goods
Yet, another new discovery this year, Night Owl Paper Goods offers really unique holiday cards and ornaments (and lots of other super cute gifts)! When you personalize your card, you have the option to have it printed on eco-friendly, sustainably harvested birch wood. Yes, that’s right, real WOOD.
I bet that card would catch the eye of your family and friends as I can almost guarantee no one has ever received a wooden holiday card before!
To make your card into a gift that lasts the whole year long, you can opt to have a 2015 calendar printed on the back. Love, love, love, love, love this! Your holiday card then becomes a GIFT they can use the whole year round. Flippin fabulous.

10. Purple Trail
And, my last, but not least fun new find for this year – Purple Trail – and another one to check out for cute affordable holiday cards.
Low prices, and tons of customizable options. Most fun to me are the shape options, like the cute heart shape above. Something like a fun shape give your cards that extra element of interest to stand out from the rest.
