It’s that time of year again! Yes, I mean the holiday season. Some people start their holiday shopping and some of us (like me) bring out the Christmas carols. I wish I was one of those people sometimes, the ones that get it all done early and have their home decorated by Thanksgiving and every gift wrapped under the tree for a month! In the event of me trying to start early I started looking for holiday cards. I want to share some of the great sites I came across where you can add your own picture to a predesigned card and a few sites that offer psd templates for all you photographers out there offering holiday cards to your clients. I’m also sharing a few sites I found that offer some great freebies for the consumer and/or photographer. Who doesn’t love FREE?! I hope you find a few you like and if you have some more suggestions please share them in the comments!
P.S. I dabbled in some card template making myself. Check them out below.
