It's Never Too Early...

One of the 100 Days To Christmas tasks this week was to being researching Christmas cards.  While we still don't have the perfect family photo for our card {it's kind of impossible to get a good picture of both of us with both dogs looking in the general direction of the camera}, I'm more than happy to start narrowing down our options.

There is no shortage of cute cards to choose from this year.  AND Shutterfly, Minted, and Tiny Prints all have an option to only show you Christmas-specific cards, which I just love.  {See: this rant.}  Last year, we used Shutterfly and had a wonderful experience, but I'm just not feeling any of their choices this year.  I'm really in love with all of the simple, modern options Minted has.  Here's what I've narrowed it down to:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Which one is your favorite?  Have you started looking at Christmas card options yet?  If you've used Minted before, how was your experience?

I am not being compensated by any of the aforementioned card companies for this post.

Totally ordered Christmas party invitations yesterday from Tiny Prints. Haven't done cards yet, typically I've done Papyrus but then get sucked into their "buy 3 get 1 free" and I really don't like enough people to send that many cards. SO I am thinking about doing a personalized one this year (sans pictures). I'll definitely check out Minted!

I can't decide which card I like more - the first, second, and sixth options are all so great! I really don't think you could go wrong with any of the options you've chosen.

You've gotten me in the holiday mood! I am loving several of the cards at Minted - the simplicity is so pretty:) And I love that they are offering discounts if you order now. Early shopper bonus!

I was hoping we'd get a good picture for our card in Bali, of course I am squinty or fat looking in every single one! I ordered from shutterfly the past two years henchmen they had promos. Hopefully I can wait until November again this year and catch a sale!

I am going to pretend I did not see this...can barely wrap my brain around the fact that summer is over and now its time to seriously consider the holidays are upon us!

Attempting to get a photo in which you + husband + two dogs are all looking in the same direction is good practice for if/when the human kids come along!

I'm totally the person who starts shopping for holiday cards months in advance, so I'm happy to see this.

I've ordered from Minted and have had excellent experiences with them, though I can say the same for Tiny Prints too (though Tiny Prints is so popular amongst my friends I fear card overlap - oh, the horror!)
