Sometimes it seems that preparations for the holiday season couldn’t start early enough. Whether it’s Christmas in July sales or store window displays in mid-October featuring Santa Claus, reminders that the holidays are on their way abound.
While there are still plenty of shopping days before Christmas, one thing that can easily get away from us is sending Christmas cards. Putting a card in the mail each year is a special tradition. I look forward to going to the mailbox throughout December and then sitting down to look at the photos and letters from loved ones with their updates on the year’s activities. These prized envelopes are no small feat to produce, either. Keeping track of mailing lists, stamps, and the cards themselves takes a good bit of work.
This year I’m vowing to get an early start on my Christmas cards, and I encourage you to carve out a little time before the Thanksgiving rush to get yourselves organized, too.
I think it will be easier this time around because I’m so excited about the new Victoria Collection of holiday cards created by our friends at Expressionery. This special series, inspired by the beauty of Victoria, includes elegant photo cards and a variety of personalized address labels. They also have lovely personalized stamps, perfect for adding an extra bit of cheer to your return address.
To celebrate the launch of the Victoria Collection, Expressionery is offering one of the festive personalized stamps to a lucky winner. To enter, peruse the collection, and decide which of the three stamp designs you like best. Then explain what you love about it in a comment below. We will select a winner on Friday morning.
