Thursday, December 8th: Make Photo Holiday Cards with Etsy

Making Smiles Bright: A Holiday Photo Card Event
Etsy Labs (55 Washington St., Suite 712, Brooklyn)
$5, registration required

Who doesn’t love that photo card from 1983 of the whole sweatered family at the mall, with its woodgrain border and bedazzled holiday greeting? Celebrate the schmaltz this year at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn with our Making Smiles Bright: A Holiday Photo Card Event!

On Thursday December 8 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. ET, Etsy Labs Brooklyn will be open for you to bring friends, family, colleagues and comrades to get your photo taken and turned into a holiday card.

Choose from one of three backdrops that we have hand-curated and decorated with merchandise direct from Etsy holiday shops and sellers (see details below), smile wide and bright, and leave with a digital file that you can customize and circulate near and far. Our long-time partners from the Magnolia Photo Booth Co. will be on hand to get those pictures print and sent.

We’ve also partnered with Moo for a 15 percent discount if you want to turn your digital file into a printed greeting card (discount codes will be distributed at the event). If you’d rather print at home, we’ll be leading small groups in workshops to make your own envelopes from paper ephemera (feel free to bring a favorite new or vintage paper to use). Every hour, we’ll be raffling off a chance to win one piece from the vignettes for use in your own holiday decor.
