We make our own

Christmas cards seem to be a fading tradition. When I was growing up, my parents received several hundred and likely sent out a similar number. We do about two dozen, and that number’s shrinking. Here’s the design we mailed off last year, with a gold dust adhering to a rubber-stamped base. (Photo by Rachel Williams)

  1. Nice design.

    High postage and high card costs put the industry on life support – and the internet has pretty much killed it.

    My parents were like yours – but I remember (as do you I am sure) when postage was ten cents.- or less. Cards were 50 cents a box of 24. Now postage and cards are more than a buck each. Who wants to spend $500 on something that is just gonna get thrown away?

    Which is sad – I loved sending and receiving cards. But I can no longer justify the expense.
