Printing Custom Holiday Cards October 24 2015

It might seem a little soon to start thinking about printing custom holiday cards, but December always seems to creep up on us. Design and purchase your custom holiday cards early this year to avoid unnecessary stress. We can help you create a lasting impression with customers, friends, family and co-workers by printing your intimate and beautiful holiday cards.

Custom Holiday Card Printing


In our invitations section, we've formed an incredible selection for creating and printing fantastic holiday cards.


What is the perfect holiday card size?

We've got some preset sizes for designers looking to make a very special and unique card - 3.5x5, 4.25x5 and 5x7. If your design has different dimensions, that's okay too. Printkeg welcomes custom sizes for even the most freakish and uncommon card dimensions.

The most common size for holiday cards is easily 5x7 (folded or flat). They're big and bold yet elegant and personal. And, they're the perfect size for photos and personal messages.

The right card choices are essential.

For holiday cards, our print experts carefully selected high-end card stocks that are slightly heavier than postcards and only available in our invitations collection.

Printkeg offers this long-lasting paper stock more suitable for invitations, holiday cards, greeting cards, photo cards and so much more. Flat and folded cards may utilize different paper weights, but both types include distinct glossy and matte selections. Another distinguishing card stock we are proud to carry for flat cards includes a fabric texture (Textured Card - 100# Cover) that emulates a watercolor paper feel.

We've added more colorful envelopes

We've hand-selected specific colors for envelopes to complement the holiday season: White, Natural, Gamma Green, Dark Red and Astro-Bright Blue. All of these options are available for finished 5x7 cards since they are the ideal holiday card size. White and natural envelopes are offered for 3.5x5 and 4.25x5.5 cards.

We also provide custom quotes for other colors and sizes (minimum of 1000 envelopes). Just contact us and let us know what you're thinking.

Properly setting up holiday card artwork is easy

To set up your special holiday card artwork correctly, download one of our PDF templates. Each side of your 5x7 layout should be sized 5.25x7.25 to accommodate bleed and trim areas for an edge-to-edge print.
