The Most Creative Holiday Cards You’ve Seen

It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again! It feels like we just posted last year’s Staff Favorite Holiday Cards. As you can imagine, it’s very rewarding to see how creative our customers can be. There are lots of oohs and aahs, laughs and ‘no ways’ as our team goes through the cards to make sure they look just right.  If you are at a loss for photo ideas or looking for something different this year, be sure to check out our holiday photo card ideas for inspiration.

We hope you enjoyed this year’s selections! We certainly did. As always, we offer free design assistance even before you purchase so don’t be shy about taking us up on that. All of our cards are made of 100% post-consumer recycled paper so no trees are cut down. In addition, we plant a tree with every order with over 300,000 trees planted to date. We like to say our cards are pretty inside and out.

Will yours be on our next year’s list?




Creative Holiday Cards You Wish You Made

There are many fun aspects of working at Paper Culture from our need to celebrate every holiday to brainstorming new products.  As you can imagine, the winter holiday season is very busy for us. In January, when we have a moment to breathe we look back and reflect on the past year. This includes time to look back at all the amazing and creative holiday cards our wonderful customers have designed. At any given moment, you’ll hear the staff laughing, oohing and aahing, and sometimes even quiet from sheer shock.

Here are our top 4 favorites from 2012, in no particular order. Will you be on our 2013 favorites list?
