With the recent move I knew I wanted to send out "Change of Address" cards. Even though I know no one seems to use "snail" mail anymore there's something about getting a note in your mailbox. And I want to make sure everyone knows how to find our mailbox!! I can't miss out on Christmas cards this year, right!??! So anyhoo... I was on the hunt for an inexpensive option. Oh and of course cute.
I went to my best friend a.k.a. Pinterest and started doing a little research. I found this super cute link to a free printable.
Loved the image! Also loved the colors but knew it would be more expensive to go with a color option and putting it in an envelope would also add to the cost (stamp and envelope). So I decided to go the black/white post card route. I used the image from the printable and put into a gray-scale image.
Then for backside of the postcard I cropped the suitcases for a repetition of the theme, added our return address and a spot to fill out.
I made the document in Microsoft Publisher and sent it to OfficeMax to be printed. They used a #110 paper in cream and then they cut into 4 postcards. The total for the printing, cutting and paper was $4.42!! Bargain! Of course stamps added to my endeavor but totally worth it.
Yours should be in the mail - don't forget to update your address book so I get your uber cute Christmas card!!
