Hanukkah starts at sundown on Saturday, December 8th so less than a month to go and I’m just gearing up. We just picked out our pics from our recent family photo session with the fabulous Jennifer Tai. Now the next step is to pick a card. And yes, I order my cards since my holiday card list is just too long to think about making them myself.
This always feels like quite the task – getting just the right combo of picture(s), design and sentiment. I often go with a New Years card so as to be holiday neutral (and let’s be honest, it buys me more time). But, I’m really feeling like Hanukkah cards this year. After all we get plenty of Christmas cards even though we don’t celebrate Christmas so I don’t see why all those folks can’t get Hanukkah cards even though they don’t celebrate Hanukkah, right? Besides, it’s all about peace and light and that applies to everyone. I have a series of sites I generally go to in search of the perfect card. But before I share those with you, I have a very special treat…

And now, without further ado, some of my favorite places to shop for personalized photo cards:
Shutterfly generally has a really nice selection of Hanukkah cards with varying price points and they have great customer service. A couple of my faves this year:
Tiny Prints does cards well whether it be holiday cards, baby announcements, birthday invites, you name it. Their Hanukkah card collection is no different. I love that this year they have some really cute cards for families that celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.
Minted is on the spendier side but their products are gorgeous with modern sophisticated styles. This year’s selection of Hanukkah cards is simply lovely.
Snapfish has a nice selection of reasonably priced Hanukkah cards with a variety of layouts.
Oh so many choices! Maybe I’ll work on my card list so I know how many I actually need…
What about you? Are you sending cards this year? Are they Hanukkah specific?
Don’t forget to enter to win the Hanukkah onesie from IMA Design! And stay tuned for lots of fun Hanukkah happenings – gift ideas, giveaways, product reviews and of course, projects made by Mamaleh!
