Magnet Street Christmas Cards (and a Discount for YOU!)

Sooooo (she says, kicking nonchalantly at the ground with the toe of her shoe) . . . got your Christmas cards ordered yet?


Good! Me neither.

But mine will be ordered soon. Just as soon as I can find any picture on my computer that doesn’t involve food or my dog or an event I’ve been to recently. (Basically, all of the photos on my computer are blog-related, not family-related.)

And since this year has been completely insane what with our taking separate Spring Break vacations, and one child spending an entire 8-week summer at camp, and another going off to college this fall, well, we don’t have any photos of our entire family together.


Hopefully the stars will align and we will all be in the same place at once and we will be able to take a picture together. It may be a terrible picture, and it may be Photoshopped, but there will be a picture of five Wildpeople all in one place at one time if it kills me.

*deep breath*

I’m fine. I really am.

In fact, I’m better than fine because even though we may not have a photo . . . yet . . . at least I know what Christmas card I’ll be getting this year. It’s this one.

Isn’t it cute? Obviously the family on the card will have to go.

On second thought, they are much younger and much cuter than our family, so maybe we’ll give them one square. I’ll have to think about that.

Anyway, I want to introduce you to Magnet Street Christmas cards. These are so cute, both classic and contemporary at the same time.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Magnet Street is a great company which is owned by a great family. And they are also the world’s leading supplier of save-the-date wedding magnets.

(Get this, their website offers over 2,000 different styles of save-the-date cards and magnets! That's a lot to choose from!)

But they do so much more than that. They offer wedding invitations. (I think this letterpress design is beautiful and elegant.)

They also do baby announcements and business stationery, too.

But I really like their Christmas cards. You can even get a magnetic Christmas card—isn’t that cool?

I messed around on their website for a while and found it really easy to navigate. Plus, here's another great feature--you can totally customize your Christmas cards by changing the colors or the fonts or the text. Even with hundreds of great designs, your card can be uniquely your own.

Today, just because they love me and I love them, Magnet Street is offering my readers (that would be YOU!) at 15% discount on your Christmas card order. Just enter the promo code EFFA373Z7E at checkout.

Head on over there now and check out all of their great designs--anything from magnetic Christmas cards, 4 x 9 Christmas cards, and two sizes of folded cards--they've got it all. And don't forget your 15% discount!

Merry Christmas!

Now tell me . . . when do you like to get your Christmas cards out? Are you a before-Thanksgiving person? Or a sometime-in-January person? Or do you get them delivered on time?

Disclaimer: Magnet Street is giving me some free Christmas cards in exchange for this post. Thank you. And have a nice day.



  1. Shelly, I will definitely be Christmas card shopping today! Love the cards! I'm sold! Do you think I could use one more exclamation point?!

    I love that you're going to give the family on the sample card one're a hoot! I only send out cards every other year. That's not any policy I have or anything; it's just the way it works out. I forget to send them one year and then I feel so guilty that I make a big deal out of them the next and then I spend so much money on them that I vow not to do them the next year. You see the cycle, I'm sure. At any rate, I didn't send them last year, so guess what? I'll head over to the website and shop!

  2. Love this idea!! I was just realizing it was time to get on Christmas cards for this year...(now I just need to corral my troops for a picture)

    Glad I found your were very affirming to my response (to a question that asked for an opinion) and I really appreciated that...

  3. Unfortunately, I'm a last-minute person. I'd love to get my cards out in early December, but that hasn't happened. Ever. Maybe this year?? ;)

  4. I guess it's that time of year again already! These designs look really nice.

  5. These are beautiful. And though I missed the one day sale, I don't have my photo ready anyway. If it gets done, the photowill be taken on Thanksgiving weekend. There's a big IF in this picture. : ) Great site though.

  6. Hey readers! I want to let you know that this is not a one-day sale--the offer is ongoing, so get your photos together, come back, and use that offer code to order your cards!
