Do you do picture Christmas cards?

I usually do homemade Christmas cards. We were thinking of going to a store and getting them professionally done, but I know somehow we will end up spending hundred's of dollars unexpectedly. Does this sort of thing happen to you? Or am I just a softie?

I worked in One hour Photo Lab previously, so I have done my own photo cards for years. I love it too now that they have multiple photos can go in so we have like pictures of the 3 of us, 2 of us & Jonathan himself. This years has 6 spots, so there are 2 of each. Love it :)

We have in the past, not every year. My husband takes our picture then we have them developed at Walmart.

We always get the kids photos taken around this time of the year and they usually offer a few free cards with the purchase so we use those and then I just pop and wallet sized card into the christmas cards for anyone else.

I used to work for Sam's Club one hour photo and made my own during that time.  I miss working there!  My boss moved to another store in Tx and left us with a crappy boss which made things miserable and so I left.

Nope. I am not a fan of the picture cards. I'd rather receive a regular card.

I miss it too! At the time I left it was too hard to work the hours.

And see I am the opposite. The regular cards are so impersonal to me, I don't get anything but a stamp slapped on them half the time, no pictures from people. I would rather get a picture from someone, something I can keep from them all year, something more personal, something about their lives.

I love photo cards, newsletters, etc. I do photo cards & include a newsletter.

I put my cards on display and really don't need pictures of other people around.  I really don't care what you did on your summer vacation.  I also find myself thinking..."that's the picture you picked?".  Just give me a nice card with the 3 Wise Men...something that is truly Christmas.  Your family...not Christmas.  You want to send me a picture of your family...do it for something other than the Holiday.
