2023 Free Customizable and Printable Merry Christmas Card Templates

There are very many different Christmas cards in stores this month. But most of them often convey the same message or have similar design concepts. So, if there is something special that you would like to say to that special someone, it can be very difficult to find the ideal card with the correct message.

This is one of the reasons why more and more people are choosing to use digital solutions to create the cards themselves. The problem is that unless you are familiar with Photoshop or some other fancy design tool, you are limited in how much you can do.

We've found a way around this problem by designing pre-made templates that you can simply customize to fit your needs. Here are a few of our best Christmas Card templates and how to customize them with UPDF.

Top 3 Merry Christmas Card Templates You Can't Miss

What Do I Say on a Christmas Card?

Christmas is a time for giving and sometimes the only meaningful thing you can give to a loved one is your message of love. It is therefore important that you speak from the heart when writing a Christmas wish message.

But the message that you add to any one of the designs that we have shared with you here will depend on the person receiving the card. If it is your longtime friend, for instance, a playful tone may be more ideal than the formal tone you could use for a Christmas card you intend to send to your boss.
