E-greetings are easy, inexpensive and just right for procrastinators who can't make it to the post office. But they lack a certain something that paper greeting cards provide (besides, there will be people who are eagerly awaiting for your card to complete their holiday decorations).
The solution: If you are adept with scissors and a stencil, you may choose to make your own cards, but the rest of us might consider sending postcards this year. Stamps for 100 postcards will cost $33, compared with the $46 you'd need to mail the same number of standard-size cards in envelopes. You won't feel like you're skimping if you choose something like this embossed vintage-looking tree from Paper Happy Designs, this relatably funny card from HenPen Designs or any of these personalized photo cards from Minted.
