Christmas cards

I absolutely love sending mail and my list for Christmas cards continues to grow.

For the past few years, I have utilized a service from the US post office called Premium Postcard. What I really love about this, is that you can personalize your cards, create mailing lists, and send them anywhere in the world for the low price of $1.12 each (or less if you buy them in bulk or when they have a sale).

It's also ultra convenient for sending birthday cards and scheduling mailings in advance, because they are sent from within the US, so there's not the additional transatlantic wait time if you're a tad late on remembering.

If you happen to receive this card in the mail you can act surprised! I will leave the message on the back a mystery for you.

Wow, I love it - and such a good idea. I never heard of this.

Holly said...

Wow, what a smart idea- I love it! Who knew the USPS even did something like that?

First off, your card is adorable! Yes, it does seem that you are going through a font-phase, but its a cool font. Go for it!
That sounds like a really great service! Sending cards from Germany is ridiculously expensive! I can't wait to check it out :)

Glad that I could help! I know how living abroad you have to plan EVERYTHING far in advance. This definitely makes life easier.
