(Outside the U.S. and Canada?  Now you can go to your local Zazzle version of my shop:  Zazzle UK  /  Zazzle Australia  /  Zazzle New Zealand  /  Zazzle Nederland  /  Zazzle Duitsland  /  Zazzle Spain)

I've resorted to custom-making some traditional, religious Christmas cards in Italian, and some in English, all with  beautiful Italian art religious images, set in golden frames.  Resellers welcome.  You can choose from the following texts:

  • Italian Christmas Greeting
  • English Christmas Greeting (Merry & Happy)
  • the Lord's Prayer in Italian
  • the Hail Mary prayer in Italian
  • a simple prayer by St. Francis of Assisi
  • a Tuscan chocolate candy recipe on English
  • a recipe for delicious Zabaione in English
  • La Befana Epiphany cards with and without explanations
  • or 3 different prayers by St. Francis in English

You can customize the cards by adding extra text and images, on-line, before ordering, for example your family's name and a photograph, or a family recipe or prayer, or family news. 

And you can choose between two card sizes.  There are also generous quantity discounts, which are applied to the total number of cards you buy, so you can order a selection of the cards.  Cards come with envelopes.

They are for sale via the my shop hosted at, a large, family oriented, on-line custom-products seller.  They ship around the world.  You can pay by secure credit-card payments. 

They often offer discounts leading up to the holidays, or free shipping, so it's a good idea to sign up for their e-mail alerts.   You are free to resell my cards.

Here are some of my cards.  Some are with 'Buon Natale', others with 'Merry Christmas', some with 'Happy Christmas'.  Click through to the shop for a full selection.  Lots of beautiful Madonna and Child images.

They offer very generous quantity discounts on cards.  The prices come down very quickly!  And they apply to the total number of cards you buy, which means you can order a selection of the cards, not only one.

And take advantage of their special offers during the holidays.


Resellers are welcome to purchase the cards and sell them in their shops.  As the cards are customizable, you can add your shop name to the back of the cards.  I would suggest ordering a selection of the cards and taking advantage of the quantity discounts and free shipping offers.  All cards come with envelopes.
