Holiday Card Trends

Fall is here, and you know what that means! Whether you like it or not, the holiday season is fast approaching. The predictions are already out for the hottest Christmas toys -- so what holiday card designs will be popular this year? Anything that incorporates the use of bright, cheery colors is a sure bet. Vivid colors and fun motifs are a great way to capture the joy and optimism of the holiday season. They also represent positivity in these uncertain economic times. When it comes to specific colors, turquoise, lavender and lilac are predicted to be popular this season.

More and more people are becoming environmentally conscious. Because of this, they're going green with their holiday cards as well. Expect to see some nature-themed cards on recycled paper. These cards will probably be done in earth-tone colors.

Whimsical animals will also make appearances on this year's holiday cards. You can expect to see birds and, of course, reindeer. Colorful interpretations of traditional holiday images will be another popular design theme.

If you really want modern and unique cards, go with holiday photo cards. These cards are a great way to show off your family and to show how fast your little ones are growing! Plus, your little one's rosy cheeks on the front of a holiday card will trump Santa and his reindeer every time!

Corporate holiday cards are moving away from the traditional red and green. Many companies are incorporating colors like charcoal, chocolate, teal and plum into their holiday card designs. Geometric shapes, understated florals and stripes are also great design options for corporate holiday cards. They give cards personality and can make a great impression on both clients and employees.
