*The press release below was sent to me by the people over at Canva. I tried using Canva to design a Christmas card and it really is easy to use! It’s not just for designing Christmas cards though — Canva is basically a design tool that you can use to spruce up your photos and images. I was even able to make a new Facebook cover photo using it. Totally awesome! 🙂
Put those postage stamps away: these Christmas cards deliver in style
Sydney, Australia — Each year Filipinos spend hours waiting in checkout lines, licking dozens of icky stamps and worrying that snail mail won’t get their holiday messages to friends and family in time. And all in the name of the humble Christmas card.
Perhaps that’s why less cards are being sent now than ever before. And sheeeesh, the decline isn’t slowing down: the number of greeting cards posted has dropped 24 percent in the past decade. But no surprises there — it’s often the last thing on our mind with countless family gatherings, presents to organise and the mad holiday shopping rush.
So what if you could say a heartfelt ‘Happy Holidays’ to the people you care about with a personal design that’s just as sentimental as a handwritten note, but super quick and simple to create? Forget the text message; hold that Facebook post. Heck, why not make this Christmas a bit more special…
