Printable Christmas Cards and Some Funny Christmas Greetings for You

I love Christmas, but I hate the hassle! And, printable Christmas cards top the list of things that make the rush before Christmas more bearable. They’re a winner by my reckoning.


Free Christmas greeting cards you get off the Internet are worth their weight in gold when it comes to convenience. Making greeting cards becomes a breeze:

Browse the Internet at your leisure, choose an image you like, put a piece of thin cardboard (or, here’s a tip: photo paper – its both thick/strong, the right size and it produces great looking results) in the printer and click! It’s printed. In any number you prefer.

That’s how easy it should be, getting a set of proper paper greeting cards (as opposed to e greeting cards, what people sometimes call egreeting cards).

You can now add text, Christmas verses, little drawings or whatever you’d like to – plus a stamp to the backside and mail your paper greeting cards. How much easier could it be?

Well, it could be easier if you could add your text, your Christmas card greetings, right there, on the card before you print it. BUT that makes it too impersonal for my taste; Christmas cards are about getting in touch and showing you care.

You will find more Christmas cards to print here.

Free Email Xmas Cards? No, Personal, Printed Christmas Cards, Please!

Online, it is fairly easy to find sites that will allow you to create your own free Christmas cards. These are usually in the form of e greeting cards, which can be emailed to anyone in your email address book. These free email Christmas cards will often have some form of video or sound content. Jibjab dot com, for instance, usually have free offers over the festive period, and the site is easy to navigate and use.

If you want to make a donation to charity then it is possible to do so using printable Christmas cards – after all, don’t forget that it is also the season of giving. Some sites will have certain printable Christmas cards that you can choose from, and when you buy those, the company will then make a percentage donation to a charity. They will have a list of the charities they are supporting. These holiday postcards will also be sent with a small message (usually on the back) to show it is a charity Christmas card.

To me however, printed ‘Santa greetings’ (or: Hanukkah greetings) aren’t nearly personal enough. I want personal Christmas cards … I want people to see that I care enough to add my own handwriting.

(That, BTW, is most definitely also how I prefer to get my gifts and greetings – with the person’s handwriting on them – I feel the connection with them much more strongly when I see their handwriting … and connecting is what it’s all about, right?)

Consequently the free printable cards I like – and provide on this page – are a bit more ‘make your own Christmas cards’ style: You get the greeting cards to print here, and then you print them and add your own text (your friendly, loving or funny Christmas greetings) and a stamp (unless you deliver it yourself).

Can Be Used for Electronic Christmas Cards, too

Of course you can also use the cards here as DIY Christmas e cards and email them if you like. Or put them up on your website (or on a free one, like Weebly, Squidoo and Blogger – or an image-oriented free site such as Tumblr, Pinterest or Flickr) and just email people a link to it. That’s a form of Christmas e cards, too.

Electronic christmas cards or so-called Christmas e greetings done that way work fine, only for a ‘purist’ like myself they’re too impersonal. As are the electronic Christmas card greetings you can send from the big free e greeting cards sites.

Yep, there are quite a few websites that SELL printable Christmas cards, some will even have a selection of free printable Christmas cards. The sites will all differ slightly, but basically you choose your card, add your merry Christmas greetings and either they print and send it for you, or you print it yourself and post or deliver it.

Even though it seems unnecessary (these are Christmas POST cards, right?) some printable Christmas cards sites will also supply you with a template for an envelope, which you print and fold yourself. Or else your printable Christmas cards will be in a standard format so that finding an envelope to fit will not be a problem. You can even get them to post it for you!

Well, great, but in my book it doesn’t get much more impersonal than that. That’s something a big business might do to please its customers (who aren’t actually pleased).

Choosing the Right Image for Your Free Printable Christmas Cards

Ever tried this? You buy a pack of Christmas cards in a shop – only to discover that the card on top (the single visible one) is the only decent image in the whole pack – the rest are just an uninspiring selection of pictures or drawings of candles and baubles.

Well, I, for one, care about the image on my cards; I believe it says a lot about the person who has sent it. With printable Christmas cards you can ensure that EVERY image is the right one.

What I especially like, is being able to choose unique greeting cards to print and send to my very unique friends and family! My mom and dad plus one of my uncles, for instance, appreciate funny Christmas cards, but I have a sister, an aunt and some other family who are more old-fashioned and prefer something a little more traditional.

The Christmas Dinner

 

In fact I also have another uncle who loves naughty post cards, preferably with more or less rude greetings. He even appreciates French postcards (as in vintage erotic postcards featuring naked or almost-naked ladies with wide hips, a round tummy and behind plus, generally, a full, bare bosom).

So if I can find (or: create) a sexy postcard that combines Christmas with these vintage foxy ladies (who aren’t actually all that blatant in their sexuality but more often kind of innocently cute, really), and send it to this particular uncle of mine, then he’ll be in Seventh Heaven all through the holidays.

My brother, too, like that kind of cards – be they vintage French postcards or modern, sexy postcards (or just plain funny Christmas postcards), because, hey, he’s a male who likes looking at the female form, but more to the point he doesn’t actually care much for Christmas. So when I send him a card, I’d better make sure it doesn’t look too much like a Christmas card – the less cozy the better, and sexy, weird or funny postcards are particularly appreciated.

 

Make Your Own Christmas Cards on Your Printer – Quick and Easy

Alternatively, and quite a bit easier, you can of course, pick just one greeting card to print and use it for all of your friends, family and colleagues. This is less personal, of course, but a lot faster and very useful, particularly for organizations and businesses. They require a more ‘corporate balance’ (as in keeping it more neutral).

An image of a snowy scene local to your area, a ‘Christmasy’ version of your product, or even a festive photo of your employees in the office (or: a more boring one of your office building) are all popular choices.

Apart from staying in touch with your customers such seasonal greeting cards can act as advertising for your company!

But you don’t just have to choose from the images and free postcards presented here and on similar sites; you can also create your own Christmas cards using your own photos or some copyright free images you find on the Internet.

So if you want to dress up your cats in tiny antlers and scarves in order to produce cat Christmas cards, then no one is going to stop you – except probably the cat! (Usually dogs are more amenable, so maybe creating some dog Christmas cards is a better idea).

Alternatively you could also download one of the free printable Christmas cards on this page, fire up a graphics program (e.g. Photoshop) and make your own modifications to it. By doing it electronically you can add a Christmas hat to anyone and anything without having to fight the cat over the humiliation.

Personally I receive a lot of cute, funny Christmas cards where my friends have dressed up their children or pets in Santa hats or Elf costumes, or where they have ‘Photoshopped’ the image in a cute way, all of which can be very adorable. And yes, it is possible – you can make even the most mischievous child or pet look adorable on your printable Christmas cards!

Vintage Christmas Cards

The retro look is very fashionable right now. In times of austerity we often become nostalgic for the past – when the holidays were less commercial, it snowed on Christmas Day every year (for sure!) and no one argued at the dinner table (ever!). Or at least that’s how we remember it through rose tinted spectacles!

This is probably why old Christmas cards such as vintage Victorian cards are quite popular, but some other pretty funny Christmas cards I have seen are of festive photographs from the nineteen seventies and eighties with some kind of greeting added to them.

These old photos have that slightly faded and yellowy retro look to them of a snapshot taken with an old Kodak Instamatic, and they can be fairly hilarious. Did people really dress like that back then? And check out the hairstyles – was the bubble perm ever really a good look?

Yes, I know that photos like that are unintentionally funny, but I have already sorted through my parents’ old photos looking for some good ones to use this year for my printable Christmas cards!

Also, with the right program it’s easy to get that retro look even on new digital photos; if you don’t have Photoshop or a similar pricey photo manipulation program, there are plenty of sites available where you can download free software for photo manipulation, including Instagram which is an easy one to use.

But vintage doesn’t have to be tongue in cheek. There are some really gorgeous vintage prints and fabrics in the stores that you can use for inspiration and to create some totally unique ‘make your own Christmas cards’. A floral red and green theme looks very stylish. And anything with blues, gold and snowflakes is a match made in heaven.

Talk about artistic greetings … homemade greeting cards are SO cool, but they do take a lot of time and effort.

The Very First Christmas Cards – the History of Christmas Cards

If you can find any truly old vintage Christmas cards (actual, physical cards) then you will be very lucky. Also you’re likely to pay quite a bit for them.

Sir Henry Cole produced the world’s first commercial Christmas card in 1843, in London. The illustration was by John Callcott Horsley and was of a family drinking wine together, with the message ‘A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You’. These cards are now very valuable indeed.

The images on other early cards were of flowers, fairies and other designs that heralded the approach of spring, rather than having any religious themes. And by 1875 Christmas cards were also being produced and sent in the US.

Images of cards from the Victorian and Edwardian period are still popular today, so if you can find one then why not produce your very own printable Christmas cards from it?

If you don’t want the physical cards, you can find quite a lot of printable vintage Christmas cards on this page. I REALLY like those old Christmas cards, the Victorian cards in particular. There’s just something about the style and quality of the drawings and paintings (as well as the motives) used on them that I find really attractive.

 

General, Common Christmas Card Messages

As you can see, Christmas card messages have hardly changed at all from that very first card produced in 1843. The most common Christmas card greetings will wish the recipient a “Merry Christmas”, “Season’s Greetings” and a “Happy New Year”. Although in recent times, official Christmas cards from businesses and companies tend to use the message “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” so as not to offend those people and religions that do not celebrate Christmas.

Other, more traditional Christmas card greetings, Christmas card messages and general merry Christmas greetings include for example:

May the wonderful blessings of Christmas remain with you all throughout the year!

Best wishes for peace, health and happiness!

Warmest greetings of the season and best wishes for the coming year

Kindest holiday wishes from our home to yours

May the tranquility of the Nativity be with you and your loved ones.

Have a great Christmas and the best of everything in the New year!

Hope your holidays are happy days!

Deck the halls, trim the tree, wrap the packages, and have a very merry Christmas!

May your holiday be a time of cold, snowy days and hot, steamy cocoa with the people you love!

Wishing you an unforgettable Christmas!

Sending you a ‘flurry’ of the warmest Christmas greetings in this cold, but merry season!

 

Creative Christmas Card Messages (Christmas Poems)

My children like to personalize their cards to their school friends with the message, “Kathy (or Geo) wish you a Merry Christmas“, which is all very sweet and nice until you read on. Their particular style of Christmas card messages they send to their friends is not in the least bit traditional.

If you will allow me to quote a couple of free printable Christmas cards they sent out last year: “Have a great Christmas, Lard Ass. Love, Santa”. And the other: “Santa has been watching you and he knows you are BAD!” :-)

I, personally, prefer my Christmas card messages to be somewhat more friendly and meaningful! I also like Christmas card verses, so I try to do some short Christmas rhymes, or failing that, at least some kind of cute, funny Christmas greetings (… or indeed, in at least one case, some funny, rude greetings) and then add some personal comments and perhaps some more general Christmas wishes.

Here’s an example of the type of cute, brief merry Christmas greetings I sometimes dream up:

All I want for Christmas is my family and you …
and perhaps also a wee yacht and a Ferrari, too!

Or maybe some just as slightly inane but cute type of short Christmas poems, like this:

Christmas is here, so we’re jolly and perky,
and soon to be stuffed with Christmas turkey!

Or this, which doesn’t rhyme, though:

If Santa thinks delivering millions of presents in one night using just a sleigh and some reindeer is hard work, she never tried cooking and serving Christmas dinner for my family! I say ‘she’ because if Santa can do all that in one night, he must surely be a she. All good wishes for a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year!

And here’s an example of the more rude greetings that I reserve for those very special folks who love weird Christmas cards and some insulting, yet funny Christmas greetings / Christmas poems to go with them:

Yes, it’s now that dreaded time of year
when to friends and loved ones far and near
we reach out and greet their lovely minds and hearts
or to people like you we send cards with smelly farts!
A most merry Christmas and a happy new year, my dear!

I also know someone who will send their young niece and nephew additional printable Christmas cards from Santa Claus himself. Inside he lets them know that he is pleased to hear they have been good all year, and he hopes that they like their presents.

Personally, I don’t quite get the idea of lying to your kids about anything, including the existence of a fictitious character, and in any case it is an open question how much longer they will continue to believe in Santa, but the woman I know says she will keep on sending cards from him until they find out.

Anyways, here are some more examples of merry Christmas greetings, funny Christmas greetings, cute Christmas poems … and one or two rude greetings that you can employ on the backside of your printable Christmas cards if you like:

Christmas is such a great idea
Let’s have Christmas every year!
May the spirit of Christmas bring you joy and peace
and all of the coming year be filled with ease!

As kids we would play the wonderful game
of waking our parents too early on Christmas day
As a parent, today, my kids do the same
And I find myself wishing they’d just go away

But still their happiness and joy warms my heart
And I find myself accepting that too early start
May your Christmas be filled with happy children!

‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse
Then the silence was suddenly, painfully broken
By terrible, horrible, thunderous roaring
‘Twas not Santa being outraged or outspoken
But merely your own, most terrible snoring!

Wish you a warm, fuzzy and quiet white Christmas! :-)

If Santa Claus wasn’t so prudish and haughty,
he’d realize you’re being good when you’re naughty!
May the Force of Christmas be with you forever!

It’s that Christmas cards time of year
when for a moment we stop guzzling beer
and do our level best to be friendly and kind
so we can reach out to someone’s heart and mind!

So in the true spirit of the Christmas season
We wish you love and joy beyond reason!

Why do I buy brussel sprouts each Christmas, when I know they really taste like trash?
Maybe next year I’ll get wiser and buy something edible … or simply save myself the cash!
Many warm wishes for a wonderful Christmas and a most wonderful New Year, my friend!

I gave up on writing something witty and clever
I just hope you have the merriest Christmas ever!

Free Christmas Cards – Why Not Make Your Own Christmas Cards?

You may think it’s a lot of hassle, but trust me, it is also a lot of fun: No matter how little creativity you think you have, you absolutely CAN make your own Christmas cards. It’s pretty easy, and you can be sure that your custom Christmas cards are also some absolutely unique Christmas cards!

I haven’t had the time or energy to do this much, but those times when I did it, I had a blast! Here are a few neat Christmas card ideas:

One good tip is to save all your Christmas cards from the previous year and cut them out to make new cards the following Christmas. I also use (pieces of) old Christmas cards to make gift tags to put on my presents, and to make table place-cards.

Obviously you can also visit some clipart sites (clipartqueen dot com comes to mind), to find and print some holiday clip art that you can use for a collage. Or cut things out of last year’s (or: this year’s) glittery Christmas magazines.

No matter where you get your Christmas graphics you can add some glitter glue to jazz them up, and pinking shears to cut them out.

These kinds of DIY Christmas cards are not only true artistic greetings, but they are also both gifts and greetings rolled into one!

If you are feeling particularly proud of your homemade Christmas cards, then scan or photograph them and upload them to a homemade Christmas cards site (or: your own website) – let your friends see just how creative you are! Who knows, they might just be really impressed by your creative Christmas card ideas.

Christmas Card Ideas for Kids

Kids love to make their own cards. Give them some glue, glitter and paints, and perhaps some printed Xmas clip art (or magazines from December) and let them get on with it. Grandparents love to receive homemade Christmas cards and can show them off to their friends.

And, here’s another one of those fine Christmas card ideas: you can make some really nice and effective Christmas cards just with colored handprints (the kids’ and yours and perhaps even your pet’s). (You can Google images of “handprint christmas cards for children” for some really cool ideas.)

Sentimental Printable Christmas Cards

If you can’t be sentimental at Christmas then when can you be? A puffed up robin on a snowy branch, a snowman wearing a hat and scarf – they all scream Christmas. But what about injecting a bit of your own personality into your printable Christmas cards?

My mother is a cat lover, and last year she produced some free printable Christmas cards of her cat, MacTavish, sitting on a pile of Christmas wrapping paper licking his paws to clean his face. Her cat Christmas cards were very sentimental and also very cute, but without being ‘twee’.

However, if you do want to go one step further you could always create printable Christmas cards of your pets and sign it with greetings from them! Tweet tweet, meow, woof!

Cat Christmas cards are very popular, as are cards of dogs – dog Christmas cards. Wild animals in snowy landscapes, or pets in a festive setting always look lovely and can often be a good choice for non-religious recipients and senders alike. Nearly everyone wants to celebrate Christmas but not everyone is a practicing Christian – which is always something to bear in mind.

Religious Themed Christmas Card Ideas

But, Christmas is essentially a time of year celebrated by Christians worldwide. Therefore a large percentage of all Christmas cards will have a religious theme.

A favorite image is of the nativity scene with a star shining brightly in the sky above a stable. Or angels, or the shepherds being visited by the Angel Gabriel, or the three wise men traveling to Bethlehem on their camels. These are all very traditional Christmas images that everyone will be familiar with.

For a more modern twist, you could design your own printable Christmas cards with a stylized cross, or star of Bethlehem.

Religious Christmas Card Verses

At Christmas it is never more appropriate to use verse and scripture from the Bible. Some cards will contain a short prayer, or even the Lord’s Prayer. While many will offer words of comfort and joy.

A couple of popular Bible verses include:

Matthew 2:10-11 . When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

Luke 2:11-12 … .For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.

Spiritual Christmas Card Verses

Christmas card verses that are non-religious can often have a spiritual quality. Which in the season of goodwill unto all men, is something which is very appropriate. Verses that mention peace and joy can be very uplifting for the recipient. Probably the simplest message is: Peace on Earth.

Christmas card messages come in all shapes and forms. If you can’t think what to say, then stick to the traditional style Christmas card greetings (see above). They are so ingrained into our consciousness that we all know them and appreciate the sentiment behind them. Or, as mentioned, you could add some Xmas saying or Christmas quotes.

Often sending out printable Christmas cards to people is the only contact I have with them for the whole year. When I send my holiday greetings to my relatives who live abroad I also like to include a “family letter” to let them know what we have been up to throughout the year, and to share some of my photographs with them.

The Origins of Santa at Christmas

As previously mentioned, as well as the religious and spiritual aspect of Christmas and their importance when thinking about the verse and messages to put in your printable Christmas cards, we should perhaps look at the more commercial side of Christmas – where did Santa come from? And, why is he associated so heavily with Christmas?

Santa Claus, St Nicholas, Father Christmas – call him what you will – is believed to have originated out of historical folklore and legend from Western Europe and Greece. He is a benevolent figure that was supposed to bring gifts to all children on Christmas Eve. In seventeenth century images from England, he is portrayed as Father Christmas for the first time – a large, jovial man with a white beard who wears a long green (!), fur lined robe.

In the US during the early eighteen hundreds, he became more ‘Americanized’. It is the merging of Father Christmas and earlier folk tales that have given us the Father Christmas figure known as Santa Claus, which we have today, and who appears on the front of so many printable Christmas cards.

But hang on, you ask. Did you say he wore green? And what about Rudolf and the North Pole?

It was the publication of two poems, the first in 1821 called A New Years Present, to the little ones from five to twelve and the second in 1823 which has become familiarly known as The Night Before Christmas, which established some of his more modern characteristics, such as his sleigh pulled by reindeer landing on the roof, and Santa entering the house via the chimney with a sack of toys.

It was the American, Thomas Nast, a popular cartoonist in the latter part of the nineteenth century who told us he lived at the North Pole.

And it was at the turn of the century that Santa Claus began to appear wearing the now familiar red and white that we see him in today. Also, I’m sorry to have to tell you that it was not Coca-Cola who changed him from green clothes to red in order to match their logo (this apocryphal story has been around for a number of decades now). Santa Claus was already being illustrated in red and white well before the Coca-Cola images were produced, and quite why this is the case, we may never know.

But Santa Claus, in his red and white outfit, big black boots and his reindeer is now the image which most children associate with Christmas and want to see on the front of their printable Christmas cards – year after year!

If you really want to go all out for the vintage Christmas cards look then why not have a Santa Claus wearing a long green robe on the front of your card – it would certainly help to make your printable Christmas cards stand out from the crowd!

Funny Christmas Cards

Often humorous Christmas cards will show Santa stuck in the chimney, or perhaps (for adults) shown in a compromising position in the bedroom of a beautiful lady. Or, a nasty Santa is pointing to three scantily clad ladies and saying ho!, ho!, ho! Other adult funny Christmas cards play on the idea of Santa as a jovial fat man, his girth making it hard for the reindeer to pull the sleigh or sometimes portraying Santa as a drunk with a an even redder nose than Rudolf.

If you are up for DIY Christmas cards, there is so much material available to play around with! Find it online and print, cut it out of old Christmas cards, cartoons, newspapers and magazines – or get really creative and draw your own stuff!

Everyone is (or: is supposed to be!) at their most relaxed at Christmas, it is a playful season, so any funny Christmas cards are bound to bring a smile to the recipients face.

Beautiful Christmas Card Ideas

One year I made some oversize printable Christmas cards for my work colleagues that had a season’s greeting on the back and a calendar on the front. It meant the cards got used the whole year rather than just during December.

I have received many printable Christmas cards that have original and beautiful photos on the front; one in particular I framed and it now hangs in my office.

Printable Christmas cards really can have a life, even after Christmas is over. When you take the time to make your own Christmas cards, you can create something very magical and personal.

Greeting Cards to Print: Ideas for Groups and Clubs

We have already touched briefly on the types of images and messages used by businesses in their printable Christmas cards, but don’t underestimate the more subtle advertising power of printable Christmas cards for other associations and interest groups.

Teams, clubs, societies and grass root movements can make good use of free printable Christmas cards to promote themselves and raise awareness of their group or cause. Put your logo on them and don’t forget to put your slogan or catch phrase on to your cards as well.

I mean, if you have a bunch of free greeting cards what do you have to lose by putting a message inside wishing the recipient a Merry Christmas, and at the same time putting in a short note about your organization?

Post them through a few doors in your area, or hand out to some local businesses to give away, and you have just run your very own free marketing campaign. How much would you have paid a promoter to do that?

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you All

Here’s the final one of those good Christmas card ideas: Prepare early and make a start on your printable Christmas cards list. If you get it good over the summer or autumn, it is one less thing you will have to worry about over the festive holiday.

The Internet and printable Christmas cards are revolutionizing the way we send out our Christmas card greetings to our family, friends and business associates. The quality and production values of printable Christmas cards – whether you do them at home or pay someone to print them for you – are so professional, they look and feel like you have spent a fortune, yet they are extremely economic.

So if you change just one thing this year, you might consider changing the way you send your Christmas cards. Send out unique printable Christmas cards and wow your friends with your originality and creative flair.

Merry Christmas!
