Did you suffer through blood, sweat, and tears to get the perfect family photo for your holiday card this year? If so, then now's the time to celebrate that photo and choose the absolute PERFECT card!

There's no shortage of great online labs. And most of them are offering some pretty great sales right now, too! Truthfully, though, not all labs offer the same print quality. Since my clients want AMAZING cards, I recommend a handful of labs that I know will give them an amazing product.

Here are the top three labs I recommend for your holiday cards. 

Artifact Uprising
Artifact Uprising is the number one spot I recommend clients visit for cards, coffee table books, and wall art. They offer clean, simple layouts that are elegant and understated. I really can't say enough about the quality of their products. The company was founded by professional photographers, so it's no surprise their cards do such a fabulous job of highlighting photos. The 2017 holiday card collection features over 70 designs.

Minted says that quality is their obsession. They offer only the finest paper stocks, richest inks, and crisp printing methods. They even offer an 100% satisfaction guarantee. That makes me feel confident when I refer clients to them. They offer a huge variety of layouts, including a line of ornament cards with a pre-punched hole and ribbon for hanging. Additionally, all orders come with free recipient addressing.

This is the lab I recommend to my clients for absolutely EVERYTHING. From prints to canvas wraps, cards to calendars … I LOVE Take a peek through their reviews section and you'll see that I'm not alone. They offer premium press quality paper, fast shipping, and a wide variety of templates.  

Happy printing!
