We are thrilled to announce that the Mixbook 2014 Holiday Card Collection is here! Time to start thinking about that one beautiful photo or group of photos you’ll make into a collage and send out to friends and family to encapsulate your year – and spread joy (or humor, or both) far and wide.
MONOGRAM Always classic, ever stylish, and universally appealing, a simple monogram in a pop of red is a striking counterpoint to a collage of black-and-white photos. By using all black-and-white photos (or converting color photos to b/w) you create an easy way to visually unify photos taken in different light conditions and at different times of the year. Mixbook’s Classic Collage Monogram card featuring a single typographic seal front and center is a sophisticated and fun choice for your yearly holiday greeting card.
GLITTER & DOTS Perky polka dots take a chic turn when covered in golden glitter. Mixbook’s Glitter and Dots card is ideal for a family greeting that’s fun enough for the kids and stylish enough for the grown-ups. Use the back to share a beautiful quote about wishes for the coming year, or add your own text or more photos.
CHALKBOARD There’s something about a series of snowy photos that looks amazing set off by a hand-doodled chalk background. The vibe is warm, homemade, artful and fun. Mixbook’s Chalkboard Holiday card lets you showcase several photos in hand-drawn chalkboard frames.
KRAFT PAPER & WASHI TAPE Warm and happy by nature, there’s nothing like the pairing of Kraft paper and washi tape to invoke crafty coziness and homespun fun. Mixbook’s Show Merry Mod card creates a balanced composition out of a fun and festive mix of design elements on a neutral background. A grid of photographs on both front and back lets you show off the many moments of fun shared with family this year.
ART DECO Gatsby mania was so last year! We’re kidding, of course: Fitzgerald’s work is timeless and Art Deco style is for the ages. We love this modern, minimalist take on a highly ornate design trend that’s leaps and bounds beyond Baz. Mixbook’s Merry Deco card feels clean, fresh and unique.
METALLICS An enchanted mixture of gilded evergreen and other woodland treasures, Mixbook’s Gold Leaves is a fresh alternative to the overabundance of red and green. The scene invokes a Scandinavian winter wonderland filled with natural beauty and wholesome fun.
Once you’ve chosen a design, let your creative wheels start turning! Go back into the photos from your year and select images that would work well in one of Mixbook’s holiday card designs – you can create many iterations in many different templates till you find the perfect combination of your photography and Mixbook’s beautiful card designs. Mixbook will save all your projects online until you’re ready to order.
But remember, the earlier you order, the more relaxed you’ll be about getting your cards in the mail!
