Tis’ the season to start thinking about Christmas, if you haven’t already, and all that comes with – festive food, Christmas shopping and – a chore to some – card writing! There often seems so much to do to celebrate Christmas in style that cards are the least are your worries, but rather than just buying a multipack to get them over and done with, why not look online for some festive card templates you can print off and personalise – something that always goes down well with the kids, especially if they’re the ones sending the cards!
A simple search turns up a wide range of templates to choose from, and because they’re commonly saved in PDF format, you can just open them in a PDF viewer if you want to print them as they are. If you do want to go down the personalisation route, then use a PDF editing program instead and add your own message, image or special touch before printing and sending off to friends and family.
Ready to Print
If it’s ready-to-print cards you’re after, we love the designs from Homemade Gifts Made Easy – their printable cards are free to download in PDF format and there’s a range of 10 different ones to choose from, including both kiddy and grown up designs.
Ready to Personalise
We Are Scout offer a range of colouring Christmas cards you can print in PDF format for free – again, the designs vary to suit a range of ages. For card designs with room for a photo, you can download free card making software (will more than likely include Ads, however) such as Edraw that will then allow you to upload your photos to add to existing card templates then print once complete, or you can design your own.
Design your Own
The other alternative is to make your own – perhaps a better idea if you want to make photo cards. Have a search online and find a few designs you like, and then you can use the inbuilt templates in Word or Powerpoint to create your own cards to print – make sure you save them in PDF format, however, otherwise there’s a risk they can be accidentally edited prior to printing.
