We decided to do handwritten cards this year. I got to thinking - what is the point of a photo card when everybody sees all your pictures (including the holiday photoshoot) on social media? I thoroughly enjoyed doing the handwritten cards. They did take much longer, but felt more personal.
However, I did notice as I was doing it that there were quite a few people who maybe don't have social media who would have liked seeing a photo. Maybe next year I'll do a hybrid method of Christmas-carding :)
