Sending greetings to your friends and relatives is a must every holiday season. You can add a little flavor to it by designing your own holiday postcard. The obvious idea would be to design your postcard for all  seasons and occasions. Most people use seasonal flowers, monuments or their business to design their postcards. But why do the obvious when you can make something unique with your holiday postcard. Here are a few ways in which you can design a unique holiday postcard:

  • For use within the family theme your postcard on the life of someone old. It will be great way to show that you care. For business postcards you can create a montage of your employees which will give your employers a far idea about your organization.
  • You can use your own painting or one by your relatives or friends. This will also serve as a good platform to promote your painting skills or that of your near and dear ones.
  • Theme your postcard around a charity organization and try to raise funds by asking people to donate for the cause. For business organization this can also add to your corporate social responsibility and showcase your concern for the society.

  • Make a green postcard by raising awareness about global warming, desertification, wastage of power, extinction of animals or depleting water resources. These sort of ideas are become popular with the people these days as they address serious concerns.
  • You can pen the entire greetings with your own hand and scan it before printing instead of typing it using some software application. This will add to the uniqueness of your postcard and also bring in a very personal touch to it.
  • If you are designing a postcard purely for business purpose you can theme it around something revolutionary that has happened in your industry.

One thing you need to keep in mind is that you should not compromise on the quality of the postcard under any circumstance. You should get it printed with a professional printer like PrintPapa who have high level of expertise in the job.
