Anne of Winter Farm Writes enlightened me about the existence of Instagram templates for holiday cards.

For those whose year is best documented in these square snapshots, consider the option.
Some Etsy sellers/designers will assemble your images for you and send you a print-ready file that you can then upload the printer of your choice. Some of those options include printing, while some offer a way to save big bucks by pushing your own digital file to Vistaprint or the like where you pay in the range of $10 for 50 cards.
Anne chose this one for her family.

And she pointed me toward this one, too, by the same designer.
Not into an etsy interaction?
Some of the popular card websites have the ability to slurp in your Instagram photos, but the challenge is finding templates that are compatible with the square dimensions of the images.
PearTreeGreetings has a filter for Mobile Friendly/Small Photos that reveals some Insta-compatible designs like this bright one.
This one is from Minted.
And this one is from Paper Culture. (Here’s a discount on their fancy line of cards: 35% off Lux, Eco Holiday Cards – affiliate link)
But let’s go back to Etsy because I like the idea of an indie designer getting your business.
