Tropical and Traditional Christmas Greeting Cards

The Christmas cards on this page mostly feature tropical and beach themes. The Holiday Store also sells traditional holiday cards.

Christmas Card Options

We offer traditional folded greeting cards, flat photo cards, flat cards without photo templates, postcards, magnetic cards, and long photo cards. Scroll down the page to see different types of cards including Foil cards in silver or gold.

Multi-photo Christmas Cards

Some cards have more colors to choose from. Traditional, or tropical, triple folded cards have a simple holiday greeting in the center with sides that fold outward and contain large photos. This type of card can sit on a shelf or table.

Tips for uploading your photos: When uploading photos to the template be sure to choose clear, crisp images with either horizontal or vertical orientation to match the template. The subject of the photo should be centered to best fit the holder. All cards have bulk order discounts and come with white envelopes. We also offer decorated holiday envelopes.

Christmas and “Happy New Year” Postcards

Postcards come as either semi-gloss or matte as you prefer. There is no difference in price. A matte paper will print softer and more subtle. Zazzle’s postcard size is 4.25 x 5.6, which is accepted by the US postal service as postcard size, which means a lower postcard postage stamp can be used to mail.

Postcard bulk discounts begin at eight cards. Fill in your preferred text, order and mail. Easy and affordable way to keep in touch at the holidays.
