Snapfish are one of my go to brands for personalised photo items and so when asked if I would like to work with them this Christmas to showcase there photo cards and gift ideas I knew I had to be involved.
This Christmas why not send out personalised Christmas cards with a photo of you and your family. Here are some tips on how to get the perfect photo.
1. Get an extra pair of hands
Grab a friend, neighbor or other family member to take the photo for you
Natural light is your best friend so if indoors set up near a window to get the most of the winter sunshine.
3. Look the part
You can if you choose to wear Christmas jumpers, Santa hats, etc to give your photo a festive look.
4. Prop it up
Jazz up your photos with props such as Christmas tree in the background or tinsel, baubles etc.
5. Pets complete the family
so if possible it would be worth including them
AKA bribery this is easiest way to keep children and pets interested.
Onto the cards there are so many different styles and designs to choose from. I chose to go with the very festive Santa in his sleigh, with Merry Christmas above in white font, a blue background and stars. The photo I picked out was one of the 3 of us taken earlier in the year as we don't have that many family photos.
You can choose the 8 x 4" cards on different paper such as stationery card and flat lay in glossy or matt. They come in packs starting at 20 up to a pack of 500 cards. Prices vary depending on the style that you choose to go for and how many cards you would like.
The other item I went for is the 6x4 table top acrylic photo print which was £9.99 each and I got 2 as gifts. I again chose the same family photo of the 3 of us taken earlier in the year.
The photo is mounted behind a 0.2" acrylic plate and includes a desk stand so is perfect on desks, tables and mantelpieces.
As usual the photos have come out in great quality and are perfect card and gift ideas for the festive season.
