It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Pear Tree Greetings!

As I sit here and type this post about Christmas cards it is 80 degrees outside. The thing is though for any of us who want to get out and take a picture specifically for a Christmas card we have to start thinking now. What to wear? Where should we have the "photoshoot"? Finally the most important decision. What card design do I want this year?

The quality of the card is as important to an amateur photog, like myself, as the picture itself. A perfect shot printed on cheap paper still looks bad. I will admit that I used to go to the big name stores and order 100 of the "photo cards" and sent them out proudly with sun in my kids eyes and them barely looking at the camera. As I started grasping photography more I spent a few years creating my own cards in photoshop, having them printed, bought envelopes separately, and sending them out. And then we had Ruby. If you read my blog you know this child keeps us all on our toes. Nowadays I still want the originality of a home made card but the quality from a professional printer but I just don't have the time to do it myself. I have found happiness with Pear Tree Greetings.

You don't have to love photography to love a nice card though. Maybe you would choose to be a little different with an ornament shaped card or the modern christmas letter might be more your thing. Finding that perfect card is easy at Pear Tree Greetings with so many choices. I have been attempting to be more "green" so I chose a recycled card. It shares the fun times our family had this year with everyone we don't get to talk to everyday.
