It’s early November, and you know what that means—it’s time to order your holiday cards (or at least start the process!). But where are the best places to order your holiday cards, you ask? We did all the leg work for you. Whether you’re looking for photo greeting cards, custom holiday cards, or just an easy-to-use pack of ready-made cards, it’s very easy to order holiday cards online. Plus, so many online shops are offering early November deals. If you miss a sale, don’t worry. Most of these sites will be posting new sales all throughout the rest of the year.
From funny to whimsical, modern to classic, premium paper to eco-friendly e-greetings, plus, something for every holiday, below we’ve listed the best places to buy holiday cards this season.
Minted is our go-to for fresh and fun cards for every occasion. They support artists around the world by working as a “marketplace for independent artists.” So when you shop Minted, you’re actually supporting small businesses throughout the globe. Not to mention their designs are some of the most modern and chic out there, with quality paper stocks, creative details like foil-pressed cards or die-cut elements. Plus, they offer free address printing, saving you that step! Minted is also known for its holiday sales, so shop early.
Shutterfly is a stand-by when it comes to photo holiday cards. They make it quite easy to create custom cards that showcase your family’s personality and they tend to bring back some of the most popular styles year after year. We love that many of the cards can be personalized to say “Christmas,” “Holidays,” or “New Years.” Plus, pre-printed addressing is available on most envelopes to save you time this season. Look out for sales and you can score this year’s cards for up to 50% off if you time it right.
We love the retro look and color scheme (which are also customizable) of this card and know a photo of your family on it would make it look that much better.

Of course, there are also tons of personalized options to choose from with both photo cards and custom family illustrations. We love to shop Etsy, but it’s another one to shop early as items can go pretty fast.
We love the next-level personalization of a custom family illustration! Be sure to get your orders in early before commissions close.
