Holiday cards you can still send for FREE

Living in Switzerland, Scott and I opted not to send traditional holiday cards this year. Mailing here can be ridiculously expensive. Envelopes the post office deems too big—that are standard size in the U.S.—can cost up to $5 each.

I received an email from Open Me a few weeks ago announcing a new service: Holiday cards you could customize and send for FREE! That’s right, they are free (for a limited time).

So I decided to test the service.

I chose this design then personalized it.

I picked a picture of Scott and I adding our made-up Genwarren moniker to the John Lennon wall in Prague (though you can’t really see our tag because it’s at the bottom of the picture), but this was a decent picture that Scott and I were both in.

The cows are heading back down from their alpine pastures in what was my absolute favorite Swiss festival Désalpes.
