keepsake as they are more personal than traditional Christmas cards. Because every Photo Christmas card is unique in that every photo printed per order is custom and different, Christmas Photo Cards are the most distinctive type of Christmas card there is. They are the most cherished because they are very personal and unique.

We have seen a substantial increase in the interest of Photo Christmas cards over the past few years. Because of that, we commissioned our own design team to create unique Photo cards that can be found and purchased only through our website, so that not only are they distinctive when printed with each individuals photo, they are unique in that the bordered design on each Photo Christmas card is unique to Design Crafters making it truly a unique Christmas Card. Many of our clients like to send something that stands out and this gives them the opportunity to be very distinctive and personable at the same time.

In years past, Photo Christmas cards were seen more as a “family” type of Christmas Card. There still are plenty of personal orders being placed for Christmas photo cards, but we have seen a rise in businesses ordering photo cards as well, since they are striving to connect on a more personal level with their clients. We have seen many photos submitted to be printed with employees dressed up in Christmas colors, many wearing Santa hats. Sometimes they might even be lined up outside their office, strategically arranged in such a way that they create the shape of a Christmas tree.  Some businesses have been very creative in their attempts to send out a greeting to all their clients, customers and employees while keeping the message on a more personal level with the informal photo Christmas card.

Patriotic Christmas Cards were Birthed as a Result of the Events of 9/11/2001 and a Resurgence is Expected on the 10 Year Anniversary, Only Days Away

Patriotic Christmas Cards never existed before 9/11/2001. In fact, the production of

Patritoic Christmas Card

Patriotic Christmas Card

patriotic Christmas cards combining the theme of patriotism along with a Christmas message was never considered by Christmas card manufacturers prior to 9/11. Patriotism was traditionally celebrated on Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Christmas was usually reserved for the celebration of the birth of Christ and the spirit of giving.
What we at Design Crafters noticed as a Christmas card distributor, was that calls started pouring in immediately after 9/11/2001 asking us if we had a patriotic Christmas card. We did have one White House card, which has a flag on the top of it, which surprisingly, because of the flag, started to sell in large volumes. We did have a set of patriotic note cards and selected one to enlarge and offer as a Patriotic Christmas card. It was a collage of the US Capitol dome, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Washington Monument with the American flag as a watermark in the background in the sky. We decided to blow it up and add “God Bless America” in the top right corner of the sky.

We were able to act quickly and add this patriotic Christmas card to our website within a couple of days and sold many. Shortly thereafter, the mainline manufacturers were able to pull together some images and they also started offering patriotic Christmas cards. What’s amazing is that now patriotic Christmas cards are commonplace, and are offered every year along with traditional Christmas cards. Every year the patriotic Christmas card selection improves and grows. There has even been the addition of Thanksgiving cards now that include an American Flag.

As quoted by Jason Evans, the General Manager of Birchcraft Studios, a national supplier of Holiday Cards, “We anticipate 2011 being a strong year for patriotic cards as the country recognizes the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. Patriotic themed Holiday Cards were very strong in the years immediately following 9/11 and as this anniversary gets closer, we have had an increase in requests for cards designed with patriotic themes. As a result, our 2011 line does contain more patriotic options. We at Birchcraft feel that this year, more than any time in the last decade, people will want to show pride for our country by sending a patriotic card or using patriotic language in their personalized sentiment.”

The threat of terrorism can generate some fear and result in security practices that limit our freedoms; however, nothing can take away our love of country and national pride.  Even though issues and struggles may occasionally divide us as a nation, there remains a unity of sentiment that there is no other place we would rather be. The words of the last two stanzas of America the Beautiful still ring true even in our greeting cards – “O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years. Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears.  America! America! God shed His grace on thee. And crown the good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.”

The Holidays are Fast Approaching!

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and what that

Mosaic Honey Jar

means is that it’s also hard to believe but that the holidays are fast approaching. The next holiday on the horizon is the Jewish New Year, also commonly known as Rosh Hashanah.

Rosh Hashanah is late this year, beginning at sundown September 28. Even though it’s late, don’t let it catch you off guard, thinking that you’ve got lots of time to order, prepare and mail out your Jewish new year cards to all your friends and family.

Please check out what we have to offer you this year. http://www.designcrafters.com/cardModule/pages/RoshHashanah. We have 31 Rosh Hashanah cards to offer you this season to help you celebrate the New Year. Some are flat, some are folded, many are new. Some have flat printing some have raised. It’s important to read the description to see what comes with each individual card.

Unless otherwise indicated, the personalization will match the fonts seen in the sample card.unfortunately were unable to show your personalization and real-time because we don’t carry the same fonts that are shown on the samples. However, the samples will give you an idea of how your names will look when printed.

Mosaic Shofar

I would allow three or four days production time for your cards to be printed. Once your order is submitted and then your shipping time would be on top of that. Our supplier is located in New York so you can base your time frame on that. And of course you have many shipping choices at the point of check out. L’Shanah Tovah!

Funny Santa Christmas Card-

Hey, even Santa has to look for a tax deduction at times like this, right? This funny Santa Christmas card is perfect for tickling your funny bone! It’s got Santa on the beach relaxing, while the accountant is obviously worried about this very luxurious vacation. Hey, we can have some fun, too…here are some ways to confuse Santa this Christmas-

-Instead of milk and cookies, leave him a salad, and a note explaining that you think he could stand to lose a few pounds.

-Build an army of mean-looking snowmen on the roof, holding signs that say “We hate Christmas,” and “Go away Santa”

-Leave out a copy of your Christmas list with last-minute changes and corrections.

-Paint “hoof-prints” all over your face and clothes. While he’s in the house, go out on the roof. When he comes back up, act like you’ve been “trampled.” Threaten to sue.
