The early bird gets the holiday worm

Q: When is a good time to order holiday cards?

A: If you’re an early bird, you can usually get killer deals in September like 10-15% off or free return address printing on your envelopes. Otherwise, October is the month to order to ensure you get your cards mailed out before the holiday craziness begins. Please, I’m begging you, don’t wait until after Thanksgiving to order! I know you have a turkey to cook, and dinner for 28 people to plan, but you can squeeze in a trip to pick out your holiday cards before then, I promise! I’ll even help you decide which ones look best with Grandma’s sweater you begged her not to wear in the family photo. (Hint: when in doubt, let us convert the pic to black and white!)
