Sending personalized Photo Christmas cards is a nice gesture and brings more joy than something bought. Printing a customized card is easy: you need a photo you like, a Canon PIXMA printer and a pack of Canon double-sided matte photo paper.

If you use an existing photo, you can upload it to the Easy-Photo Print Editor app to insert into a template and embellish it with text and graphics if needed. If you want to take a new photo, especially for this, then maybe the whole family in a festive Christmas jumper is a good reason. Or you can do it as we do with our Christmas animal portrait. Whichever option you choose, it’s easy to create and print a personalized Christmas card in these seven easy steps.

You need

  • Canon Pixma printer
  • Canon photo paper matt, printable on both sides
  • festive photos
  • Easy-PhotoPrint Editor app

The perfect styling for the photo.

You can also find many positive design ideas in the Creative Park app, which is available for iOS and Android. You can download it for free on the  Google Play. To print from the Creative Park app, it must be connected to a compatible Canon PIXMA inkjet printer; See the list of supported printer models*.

If you plan to include friends and family in your photo shoot, you can make custom-printed hoodies for them. Canon iron-on t-shirt changes are available for both light and dark fabrics, so you can get great results on a white t-shirt and a dark sweatshirt or hoodie. Both films achieve the best results on materials made of 100% cotton. Print the design onto the transfer sheet, cut it out and iron it onto the fabric; See the instructions for more details.

You have designed your celebration session and are ready to take the photo. For the supreme image quality, use your Canon camera to take the picture; A Canon EOS 850D or Canon EOS M50 would be ideal.
