Looking to show appreciation to your clients or customers this holiday season? Looking for an inexpensive way to tell them “thank you”? It’s that time of year again, and what better way to celebrate the holidays than with personal greeting cards.

Here are my favorite websites with free holiday card templates that are printable at home or at the office. This is sure to be the perfect soft touch for the holidays!

Xerox Greeting Card Templates

The Xerox greeting card template site is extremely user friendly. They provide download instructions and have easy-to-use personalization features. However, they don’t provide a wide variety when it comes to card designs and sizes.

  • User friendly
  • Download instructions provided
  • Easy personalization
  • Easy to print, but you may want to cut down to remove the white border
  • Card size: 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper folded in half
  • The designs they have are traditional and great for the holidays, though limited
  • Xerox provides ready to print cards as well, if you would prefer to hand write your own message

Brother Holiday Card Templates

This site has plenty of options for free holiday card templates, but not the most unique styles. It is, however, a very easy site to navigate with easy to use personalization features, including adding photos or text. The cards print out on  8 ½ x 11 paper, then fold in half twice to create a 4 x 5 ½ card.

  • Easy to navigate
  • Limited designs
  • Easy to edit
  • Card size: 4 x 5 ½ (once folded)
  • May need to cut down if you don’t want white borders
  • Instructions provided
  • Ready to print options if you would prefer to hand write your message

Greetings Island Holiday Cards

This site is my favorite. It has lots of unique free holiday card templates that are really easy to edit and print. You can even add personal photos to the inside of your card. They not only offer a printable greeting card template, but printable invitations as well. The cards are easily printed on 8 ½ x 11 paper, but will need to be cut down to a 5 ¼ x 5 ¼ square after folding. I would love to receive one of these holiday cards!

  • Easy to navigate
  • Offers cards as well as invitations
  • Card size: 5 ¼ x 5 ¼ (once folded and cut)
  • Easily add personal photos and/or text
  • Plenty of unique, modern designs
  • Easy to print

Presentation Magazine Christmas Card Templates

I like this free Christmas card templates site because it is easy to navigate and printing is easy. However, they only offer Christmas specific designs. You also can’t add a personal message inside—you’ll have to hand write your message. In order to print, the card will open in a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. This may seem confusing, but all you need to do is print the slide. The site also gives you instructions.

  • Easy to navigate
  • Will need Microsoft PowerPoint to be able to download and print
  • Card size: 8 ½ x 11 folded in half
  • Hand written messages only (no editing options available)
  • Christmas specific cards only

Design Corral

These free holiday card templates are adorable. While the site only offers a few designs, the cards they do have are very modern and unique. I would enjoy receiving any of these cards! However, many of the cards cannot be edited, so you would need to hand write your own message inside. The site is very user friendly and the cards are easy to print. Before or after you fold, the card will need to be cut down along the black outline that prints showing where to cut. All-in-all, a great site.

  • Easy to navigate and print
  • Modern, unique designs
  • Card size: 4 ¼ x 5 ½ (once cut)
  • Some cards don’t offer personalization options (may need to be handwritten)
  • Cards must be cut down (prints with instructions on the same page)

I hope these sites help you find a new favorite card design that you can hand out to your clients this holiday season!
