    Photo Christmas Cards

    Is anyone able to recommend an online service or shop on Hong Kong where you can organise Christmas Cards with photos of your little one on it. I am hoping to get a fairly cheap option as will be needing more than 100 cards.

    I'd suggest to go to Papyrus and get some slip in / self stick photo holiday cards. This is most economical and the card looks more presentable. As those from local photolabs look rather tacky.

    You may try to get yours from US online shop such as:
    http://www.photoworks.com
    http://www.tinyprints.com

    we were very close to ordering ours from a US distributer like tinyprints.com, but then we found blanksheet.com.hk and they were great!!! they have a bunch of prints to chose from online, but if you have a design in mind, they will work for you. in the end, our cards are totally unique to their websites. they were quick and efficient and i like the thought of supporting a local hong kong business.

    check them out!

    I've jist checked with Blanksheet HK. Apparently, they have raised their unit price HK$50 insteads of HK$28!!!

    So a total of 50 cards will be HK$2500. (Minimum quantity, 2 designs of 25pcs each is not allowed too).

    NYCMEL, you may like to double check about your order.

    oh no - bummer! i ordered ours at the start of the november so we had the original prices and it was pretty reasonable compared to ordering them through a US website. Min for my cards were also 50 though.

    We're lucky and have a Mac and do our cards on iPhoto. It's fantastic. There's loads of templates to choose from (or you can customise). And they're all really classy - nothing naff about them. Slot in the photo(s) you want and click a button to send them off for printing. The pricing is reasonable too:
    Greeting Cards
    size 5 x 7
    1-24 cards USD $1.99 ea.
    25-49 cards USD $1.79 ea.
    50+ cards USD $1.59 ea.
    Postcards
    size 4 x 6
    1-24 cards USD $1.49 ea.
    25-49 cards USD $1.29 ea.
    50+ cards USD $0.99 ea.

    the only problem is that the few times we've ordered, it has taken longer than they said (about 2 weeks to receive the last lot of thank you cards). So we've probably left it too late for Christmas. Looks like we'll be sending New Year cards, instead!

    I know this isn't helpful if you don't have a Mac, but if you have a friend that does, you could ask to use the software. It's really simple.

    I've just made a quick and easy xmas card myself on my PC. I just used the photo software that came with the PC (Corel). I uploaded the photo, added a festive looking frame, added some text and it was done!
    I have saved the photo and will have it printed at a photo lab here in HK. it will be as cheap as having normal digital photo prints!
    They won't look as good as the more professional paper/cardboard cards I have had made in the past but I can still write a note on the back and they look pretty good considering it took all of 5mins.

    could be worth a try...?
