We’ve entered the month where we celebrate the Savior’s birth and it is time to crank out some Christmas graphics. I wanted to give you a few tips!
The PicMonkey application gives you a host of options for candy cane frames, presents that you can overlay in your graphics, Christmas trees, ornaments….and the list goes on and on. See the examples below that I made for FindGreatCompanies.com:
Another application that I use Canva has some interesting options for Christmas graphics. They have different options with Christmas trees, gingerbread cookies, and other adornments.
Look around your house because you have great graphic material right under your nose. Take a picture of your nativity scene, favorite decoration and add a simple background, banner, scripture, or a greeting from your business or family.
And don’t forget about Christmas lights!!! They make perfect backgrounds. I found this home last year while riding around with my family looking at Christmas lights.
So give it a try! This is a great way to share the holidays with others. If you are baking cookies, take a picture and whip up a graphic to share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram. This is a great way to engage with customers or your family and friends. Share those memories!
Tell me about some of your favorite ways to market your Christmas ideas or share special times with your family! I’d love to hear from you.
Blessings for an enjoyable holiday season,
Mary Lu 🙂
