Sending a unique holiday card design allows you to authentically connect with your family and friends during the holiday season. It might be your default to direct your browser to Minted, TinyPrints, Shutterfly or even Walgreens to select a template, upload a photo and have your custom holiday cards delivered to your door. But did you know that your custom holiday card purchase is also a wonderful opportunity to #shopsmall and #shoplocal this holiday season? I’m outlining the benefits of working with an independent designer to create unique, custom holiday photo cards that are a true reflection of your family!

create a CUSTOM HOLIDAY PHOTO card that is uniquely you

Perhaps the biggest benefit of working with an independent designer is that you are working with a fellow human. A human who can ask you questions, get to know your family, understand your design goals and so much more. My goal is to create an enjoyable and fun process that is more enjoyable than just checking a box off your growing holiday to do list. This personalized connection is also guaranteed to translate into design magic ✨ that will certainly get your card prominent placement on the mantel.

because your family doesn’t fit into a template

One of the reasons I love custom stationery is because your life doesn’t fit into a template, so why should your holiday card? Now I know what you’re probably thinking: but Brea, you create holiday card templates for us to select from, so what gives? You’re absolutely right! I create a collection of holiday card designs that are unique, modern and bold and that showcase your family to foster connections to your favorite people.

And because no two families are alike, the reality is, no two designs are alike! These customizable holiday card templates are often just a starting point. Do you prefer traditional red and green over a non-traditional holiday color palette? No problem! Want to say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays? Done! Want to include three photos when the template has space for one? Challenge accepted! I also offer a variety of options to share your family highlights through the addition of “Top 10” lists or a highlights letter, and so much more.

Flexibility is the name of the game when ordering from The Lettery Co’s collection of customizable holiday photo cards. And if you’re looking for something 100% unique? We can certainly create a custom design for you.

SAME (OR if i do say so myself…better) QUALITY, SErVICE AND enhancements

Will the quality be the same? But they address the envelopes for me! I’m running short on time and I just want to click purchase and be done with it!

These are all understandable reasons I’ve heard for purchasing from national online vendors. Now, I recognize my style isn’t for everyone, so if you see something you LOVE from another vendor, by all means, go for it! If not, rest assured that working with The Lettery Co brings you all the things you love in the age of online shopping:


  • High-quality professional printing on rich 120# paper.
  • The option to upgrade your order to have your envelopes digitally addressed (you can also purchase a custom return address stamp!)
  • White envelopes come standard with every order, or you can upgrade to colored envelopes.
  • Quick turnaround times for delivering proofs.
  • Shipping is included with orders delivered directly to your door (we’re no Amazon, but we do our best).
When you purchase from a small business, an actual person does a happy dance

True story. An actual person (me) does a happy dance with every order and I could use some more practice in perfecting my happy dance!


We’ll open for orders for customizable holiday cards the week of November 4, 2019! If you’re ready to get started or have any questions, please get in touch today!
