If you are like most of us, you are very busy this
time of the year… both with holiday activities and
planning/anticipating the new year.
I just wanted 10 minutes of your time to show you
a way to quickly ease that congestion.
I promise you that you’ll be glad that you took
just a few minutes to check this out.
You see, for many, many years, I use to buy boxes
of Christmas Cards, planning on sending them to
all of my family, friends, and business
I’d get my address list together, buy several
boxes of cards, and “get ready.”
Then, inevitably, something would come up, and
before I knew it, I’d glance at my calendar and
realize that there was no way the cards would
make it there in time for Christmas, so I’d set
the boxes aside… planning to use them next
The post office points out that if you don’t get
those cards and gifts in the mail by the 15th or
so, they can’t guarantee delivery in time for
Christmas. I used that as an excuse, when in
reality, even if I had mailed them late, it’s
important to just let people know that you are
thinking of them.
The funny thing is that I did that year after
year… which is somewhat embarrassing
This time of the year IS the perfect time to let
loved ones AND business associates know that they
really DO mean a lot to you. There is no more
inexpensive way to do that than with a nice card
This year, I did get my cards out on time. Here’s
how I did it, and how you can too.
I took a nice photo, that I’ll have to show you,
and uploaded it to this website:
I also uploaded a dozen others that were holiday
Next I created a personalized card with my new
photo on the cover, and several other on the
I wrote a message that included the recipients’
name on the inside and outside. I took a
shortcut here. When you compose your messages,
instead of using an individuals name, you can
use a “placeholder” where you want the name to
Then you can upload a “databases” of everyone
that you want to send that particular card to,
tell the system to send the same card to that
list, and as the cards being printed, each one
Your database can be something like your list
from your email address book which many email
programs let you easily download. If you don’t
know how to do that, the site has a tutorial, but
you can also just type individual addresses in.
Anyway, I uploaded over 500 addresses, told the
system to send the cards, and it showed me a
message telling me that the cards would cost me
$1.37 each (including postage). I send so many
cards that it made sense for me to get a
wholesale account with them. You probably want
I clicked the ok button,and in a flash, had over
500 cards being printed, put in a first class
envelope, and mailed for me.
In 2-3 days, people started getting those
cards, and now many of them are proudly displayed
on my friends’ and customers’ mantles.
It really IS that easy.
You can also include gifts with your cards… things
like gift cards, gourmet foods, inspirational gifts,
This was a huge time (and money) saver for me, and
is my new holiday card sending tradition.

There is a demonstration video under the first
button on the right. It shows you step-by-step how
I did it, and how you can too.

I will share that I even use this to make sure that
I come out of the holidays with NO BILLS. You see,
I’m also an “Independent Distributor” for the service
that I use. I do earn a commission when you use it
too if you use the link in this note.
On the site, there’s a link explaining how you can
become an independent distributor too.
Check it out, get those cards out now, and let me
know if you have any questions.
