8th December 2010

We've had 7 Christmas cards so far, including handmade ones (thanks Heidi, Tom, Alice and Michelle!) and one from Germany (Frohe Weihnachten, Jenny!). Don't forget your last posting dates - USA on Friday, Monday for Europe, and next Wednesday for parcels - better hurry!

The first Christmas card we designed and sent to friends was this classic from 2001 1998:

which some people were quite offended by and thought we really had boughht them cheap cards!
Now we send out 24 limited edition cards each year, you can see them all in the design archive. And what's this year's? You'll have to wait and see!

One card we'd love to receive is the annual Pentagram Christmas Card. The design company sends out a little book to its clients and friends each year which is always beautifully inventive and interesting. One example is a letter-by-letter review of the alphabet from 2006.

You can see more of these at the Wallpaper website.

What's the best card you've received so far?
