Designing Digital Holiday Photo Cards

One of the really fun features of Crane's new website is the ability to create digital holiday photo cards right from your own computer. Crane has lots of designs to chose from, with options to personalize your greeting text, typestyle and ink color.

But the most fun is the digital photo editor. You can upload your photos from your computer, from Picasa or from Flikr. Once upoaded, the photo editor lets you crop, flip, rotate, change to black and white or sepia tone, fix those nasty red eyes and even use a fill flash to bring out the best in the photos. There's also an auto fix for the less adventurous. You can even get a printable pdf proof. So don't bother messing with your photos before you design your cards. You can do it all on

Here are a few experiments:

I love Crane's cards (both the digital versions and prepackaged collections), but so many of them are oriented towards Christmas. I come from a family of mixed religions, and sending them cards with red, green, gold, reindeer, ornaments, and the like are all very suggestive of celebrating something they don't. Will Crane ever come out with a few options for Hanukkah and other holidays?
