Bonnie Marcus Holiday Card Collection

The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year at the Bonnie Marcus Collection design studio!  All of the holiday card designs that we’ve worked so diligently on throughout the year are finally available to our customers!  I can hardly wait to see which are everyone’s “favorites!”  (Of course, they are ALL my favorites!)

This year’s collection was inspired by my love of everything that sparkles!  When I launched my business 10 years ago, I hand-sparkled all of my invitation designs to make each one a special work of art. I am thrilled that the advanced print methods at the KODAK Picture Kiosks could replicate the beautiful texture of the glitter that we use in our designs. Your friends and family will love these new beautiful, festive, sparkling card designs!

Another trend that has inspired our new holiday collection is my love of chalkboard-style design, which makes one nostalgic for the simpler days, before email and smartphones were our primary methods of communication.  Our chalkboard-style holiday card designs are definitely some of my favorites!

One of the questions I am frequently asked is “How do I make sure that my holiday card stands out from the crowd?”  (What they are really asking is “How do I make sure that my card ‘makes the mantle’?”)  Many families receive hundreds of holiday photo cards during the holiday season!

To make sure that yours stands out from the crowd, my suggestion is to start with a theme in mind – something that is special and unique to your family. What are your family’s passions or pastimes?  If it’s sports, I would suggest taking your family photo at a favorite stadium.  If it’s boating, consider taking your photo out on the water.  Choose something that is representative of you and your family…. and don’t forget to include the family pets as well!

Another tip is to make sure that you take lots of photos – both group photos and individual ones. With 3 little boys in our family, there is a high probability that one of the boys will be making a funny face in every group photo.  So…. to guarantee that you’ll be greeting card ready, make sure that you take individual shots of each family member as well as group photos, because you may opt for a card that has individual photos of each child, if the group photo didn’t turn out exactly how you had envisioned.

It may also be helpful to do a little advance research and choose a few designs that you love prior to even taking your photos.  Perhaps the card you love will set the tone for your photo shoot.  Whether your design style is modern, traditional, nostalgic, religious, or high-fashion, there are such a wide range of options available on the KODAK Picture Kiosk – I’m sure you’ll find one that is perfect for your family!

Designing our photo card is actually a “family activity” for my children.  They love helping to create the cards on the KODAK Photo Kiosks at our local Target.  The machines are very easy to use, and our favorite feature is that you can view your photos in color, black & white, and sepia tones, and then choose the one that looks best with your layout.  My kids love “designing” their own cards at the kiosks, and I love being able to have them print while we shop – instant gratification, no shipping charges, and one more thing off the “to do” list!

  9. Quite frankly, contrary to popular belief, making money online isn’t as

    as fast. This article is about generating sales with articles.
