What makes the perfect Christmas card?

With everything going the digital way, it would only be natural to assume that Christmas e-cards would become the norm. Although e-Cards made a splash in the oughts, they never took off and people all over the world remain loyal to good ol’ physical Christmas cards.

There’s nothing better than opening a Christmas card to read a personalised message. In your search for card printing in Newcastle, if you are wondering what type of Christmas card to send to your clients, friends and family, we have you covered. In this post, we look at the things that make up the perfect Christmas card.

The design

The first thing to decide for your Christmas card is the style. Do you prefer a more traditional design or something out of the box? Do you want to use photos of your team/family or something with illustrations and animation? Do you want your card to be completely visual or text-heavy? The best design is one that brings out your personality.

Here at Metro Repro, we believe it’s important to find symmetry between the text and images to design the perfect Christmas card.

The message

The message is another important part of the perfect Christmas card.

Most people rely on the basic “Merry Christmas” in their cards. Although this is a timeless classic, giving your card a personalised touch will make it more appealing and memorable.

Consider the recipients of your Christmas cards when deciding your message.

The colour

When you want to evoke the perfect Christmas feeling through your card, you must use the right colours. And what better than the traditional shades of White, Green and Red to achieve that?!

But there’s no reason you should limit your Christmas card to these colours. There are many other colours that are also great for the Christmas season such as gold, black, silver and blue.

The paper

The finish, texture and weight of the paper stock are as important as the design.

At Metro Repro, we offer a wide range of paper stocks that are ideal for Christmas card printing. From luxury paper to soft textures, we offer them all so you can make your Christmas card interesting to touch.

Whether you are looking for weighted card stock, something with a beautiful texture or a matte finish, we have you covered.
