Shameless holiday card procrastinator #87146B here, hanging head low and admitting that I have not yet picked out our family’s holiday cards. Most likely we’ll do what I generally do, which is send out New Year’s cards instead. But for you Christmas card purists, we’ve taken the time to scout out a few last minute options for you.

Custom photo holiday cards in time for Christmas
1. Shutterfly has a nice selection of designer cards from some great modern graphic artists and they’re printed on a nice matte card stock. They also have photobooks, calendars and this cool photo recipe book which make great last minute gifts.

The details
: Order by Thursday 12/18 to get your cards by 12/24 with 2-day shipping (hey, at least they’ll be postmarked before Christmas).

Procrastination discount
: Save 20% sitewide for a limited time

Custom photo Christmas cards
2. Tiny Prints always does an exceptional job with their cards. Definitely pricier than your average photo site, but with the results to show for it.

The details
: Order by today to get delivery by 12/24 with standard shipping; overnight shipping with orders by 12/20

Procrastination discount: Save 15% plus upgrade to 2-day shipping for $7.95 with code SNOWFLAKE through 12/17

Snapfish affordable photo cards
3. Snapfish offers incredibly affordable photo cards, and you can even opt to print them on premium stationery. But if you can order the basics, there’s same day pickup at any local Walgreens or Meijer.

The details: Order by Thursday 12/17 for cards by 12/24 with standard shipping, or order by 12/20 with two-day shipping. Same-day pickup available.

Procrastination discount: Nothing for cards, but calendars are 1/3 off if you order today with code CALENDAR33

Holiday cards from Kodak Gallery
4. Kodak Gallery has a decent designer boutique including the appealing Martha Stewart all-in-one cards that self-fold and seal with cute included stickers. No licking envelopes, yay!

The details: Order by noon PST on 12/18 for cards by 12/24 with two-day shiping, or order 4×8 cards by 12/23 for same-day pickup in Target stores.

Procrastination discount: 20% off orders $30 and up with code HOLIDAYGREEN, or $10 of $50 orders plus rush shipping with code FASTSHIP

Holiday cards from Chickpea designs
5. Chickpea Designs is like contracting your own graphic designer; she emails you the high-res file of your card so you can print them out yourself. Terrific value, too. [via ohdeedoh]

The details: She needs 2-3 days after receiving your pics to get you a digital proof.

Procrastination discount: None needed. Designs are all around $18, then you print (and find envelopes) yourself.

6.  Skip the photo cards, get a great card you love, then stick your own favorite family photo inside. No one will think any less of you. –Liz
