Once you see how simple it can be to design and print your holiday photo cards at home, you’ll want continue printing cards, invitations and photos all year long. I have partnered with Kohls to share one of my favorite Holiday Hacks: How to print your holiday cards at home! Need a new printer? No problem, Kohl’s tech department has got you covered.
Why Print Your Holiday Cards at Home?
Sure, you can design cards online and have them printed by someone else. But I like to design and print my own cards for several different reasons. Mainly because I’m a wannabe Do-It-Yourself kind of person.
Printing cards at home can be fun. You can even start a holiday card tradition that gets the whole family involved. A few examples: Take fun family selfies, pick out favorite card design templates, or let the kids come up with your family’s holiday card message.
Designing and printing your own cards means you are never limited to a single card design. Everyone on your holiday card list can get a different card…or they can get the same one – it’s all up to you.
Printing at home means you can print the exact number of cards you need. No more, no less, no waste. And oops did you forget to send someone a card? You can print a card using your home printer even at the very last minute!
It’s easier than ever to design and print professional-looking cards at home using free software and apps available online. C’mon, you got this!
Tips and Tools for Making Your Own Holiday Photo Cards:
- You will need a printer capable of delivering professional quality prints. We have the HP Envy 5660 e-All-In-One Wireless Printer and use it to print everything from greeting cards and photos to party invitations and homework.
- Use holiday card design software you can download and use for free. I use HP Photo Creations. Note: You don’t have to have an HP brand printer to use the HP Photo Creations software.
- Be sure to upload high resolution images to your card design for best results. Poor quality images can result in blurry prints.
- Don’t have a current family photo to put on your card? That’s an easy fix. Ask a friend to take your family’s picture or get a tripod to use with a camera’s self-timer.
- The Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR Camera is a popular DSLR camera for novice photographers. It would be a great choice to take photos for you to share on your holiday photo cards. Check out Kohl’s Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR camera bundle that includes Canon Camera with Bag, 18-55mm Lens & 75-300mm Lens.
- You want professional-looking cards, so be sure to print your holiday photo cards on high quality photo paper. I use HP Card & Invitation Kits because they include pro quality cards and envelopes.
