Christmas Card Shopping Myth #1: What You See is What You Get

If you think your card has to look exactly like the one featured on our website, you’re in for a surprise. Watch our video, 5 Cards 20 Ways, to see how the same card can take on a whole new look with colors, filters and a new greeting!

We’re constantly amazed by how creative our shoppers get with their own ideas for Christmas cards. You upload photos that express your personalities in funny or fabulous ways, substitute colors we never would have imagined, and write original greetings that make us smile.

There are also plenty of you who order your Christmas cards exactly the way they’re shown on our website. Do you know you can change the colors of that background and that font, we wonder? Do you know you can filter your photos to be black and white? Or do you just love the design the way it is?

While we DO put a lot of thought into our font choices and color combinations, we hope you’re taking advantage of all the tools you can use to make your own ideas for Christmas cards come to life at Pear Tree!

As the copywriter for Pear Tree, Cathy sympathizes with those who are intimidated by the blank space inside a 3 x 5" thank you card. Married to an active husband, and Mom to three teenage boys, she finds herself out-numbered and out-voted on pretty much everything, never gets the remote, and is used to receiving blank stares when talking about girl stuff. This blog is both her outlet and her payback.
