Send Out an American Greetings Card This Christmas

Updated on October 21, 2013
5 stars for American Greetings

Tis the season. Nothing says Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas like a greeting card itself. Receiving a bright card from friends and family with a cheerful message just makes you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. It means that someone has thought of you.

Well giving a card to others feels even better than receiving one. Start this season out by sending a card.

Nowadays, there are different ways to send out a holiday greeting.

I recommend American Greetings to get you started. They have been providing people with ways to send out good tidings in the form of a card for more than 100 years.

American Greetings have a large variety of cards to choose from. You will have the option of personalizing, printing cards out, or have the card sent out for you. You can even send out e-cards.

You can send out as many cards as you like.

Customize the inside message of a professionally printed card by choosing the letter font and color. You can even change the font size and alignment. There is always a space for you to compose your own personal message. You also have an opportunity of signing the card. You can either type in your name, choosing your own font and color, or you can upload a scanned image of your actual signature.

Once your card is completed, you can have your package of cards mailed to you. American Greetings will print your return address, the recipient address, or send you blank envelopes instead. It's all up to you...You choose. You can even have the card mailed right to the recipient.


Make it Personal By Adding a Photo

American Greetings allows you to send out photo cards.

Adding a photo to a card is another great way to customize your holiday card. It makes your card even more personal.

Family and loved ones will especially appreciate the extra personal touch to their Christmas greeting.

Print Cards from Home

With American Greetings, there is a section dedicated to customizing and printing out cards. You can still add personal pictures to both the card and the envelope.

It's like your own card workshop right at home. A window opens up for you to design the card as you like.

Send Out E-Cards

American Greetings offers e-cards...a fun and techy way to send out a holiday cheer. These cards are lively with animation and music. You can also add your own message, signature, and photos. Not only can you send them to e-mails...but these animated, interactive e-cards can be posted on your social network or sent to cell phones.

Tips for Sending Cards

Sending out cards is not difficult and does not take too much of your time.

  • Make a list of people you want to send cards to.
  • Make sure you have their addresses or e-mails if you're doing e-cards.
  • If you mail the cards yourself, be sure to have plenty of stamps.
  • Find a beautiful card with a cheerful message and/or compose your own message inside.
  • If you print out cards, you may want to have sturdy card-stock paper.

Who to send them to?

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Co-workers
  • Neighbors
