How to Add A Message To Holiday Cards In 3 Simple Steps

If handwriting the yearly family update on all your holiday cards feels like a chore, here’s a tip: print your message on the back of your holiday cards instead.

All 5×7 Flat Stationery Cards are designed with beautiful coordinating patterns on the front and back. Some back of Christmas card designs lend themselves better to text than others. Opt for light patterns that pair well with dark text, or go with solid colors with a design around the edges.
