Article Body:
Generic, store-bought, holiday greeting cards have served their purpose
of sending a festive greeting to those we think about during this special
time of year. Please note that the key word here is „served‟- past tense
is used, for such cards will probably be seen quite soon on a shelf in
the Smithsonian under the title, “Antique Holiday Greeting Cards”, as
photo holiday greeting cards are taking over.

Amazing advances in computers and photography have made it easier that
ever to snap the ideal photo to represent your family to those on your
holiday card mailing list. Digital cameras allow you to take the
picture, view it, erase it and retake it within minutes, all before
downloading it to your computer or printing it immediately through your
printer.

Recent trends have changed from the traditional family photo with
everyone dressed in their Sunday Best and set into a proper sort of pose
into a more casual themed attire. A shot of everyone, including the dog,
all wearing red, Santa-style hats and collarless red shirts create a more
playful, everyday sort of look, showing the family as they typically are.

Each year, thousands upon thousands of would-be photo greeting card
senders don‟t get the chance, for they were completely unhappy with the
finished product. Maybe they tried to create it themselves on their PC
and realized that they weren‟t as computer savvy as they had thought (or
at least hoped). When it comes to this once a year symbol, an annual
image of your family that will be sent across town and across the globe,
there should be no messing around: leave it to the experts.

Of course, there are traits for you to look for in such a company, as you
shouldn‟t leave this important task to just anyone. First, find a
company that creates unique card templates each year- not one that just
changes the year and leaves the same background. Unless, of course, you
choose to have the same template each year and simply change the year and
photo for all to see exactly how your family is changing.

Make sure that you have options for the size of your finished card, as
well as the finish (matte or gloss) involved. A better company will have
options for the paper other than the finishes, such as an option to have
your cards be actual photographs using real photo paper that can be
framed and/or scrap-booked by the recipient.

You‟ve spent an entire year with your family, but not everyone else has
had the privilege. Creating memorable holiday photo greeting cards is
one way to ensure a special place in the hearts of all who receive them.
