I have a confession to make: Generally I am terrible when it comes to sending out holiday cards. I always intend on ordering the photo ones, but there have been years when I just don’t get around to it.

Well, this year I’ve got another excuse to plan ahead. Why? Because graphic designers Tom and René Bross of My Good Greetings created a greener way to wish friends and family Season’s (and every other kind of) Greetings. Their stylish cards are made from 100% recycled paper and printed with soy-based inks.

When I received samples for review I was really impressed. The semi-gloss pictures look beautiful and vibrant because they’re printed on thick card stock, making them so much nicer than the flimsy, glossy ones I’ve ordered on some of the photo websites.

One word of wisdom: When you’re considering which of your favorite photos to upload, skip the matching reindeer sweaters, okay? –Betsy
