Holiday Newsletters Made Simple.
Boy, the holidays come faster and faster every year, don’t they? I bet you’d barely digested that Thanksgiving turkey before the first Christmas card arrived in your mailbox. And now there’s only a few days left of the year and you haven’t even sent out your annual family newsletter! Whatever will you do!?
Newsletter2Have no fear, Backpack is near! In a few minutes you can easily create a quick and simple family newsletter to share with all your friends and family, complete with photos and notes that explain just what’s been keeping you so busy this year.
Use Textile markups to insert images into your header body and the notes section, and you can even upload a copy of the newsletter in a Word format for those friends of yours who’d like to hang it on their fridge. Share the URL publicly or keep it private by inviting people to start a Backpack page of their own.
Who says the holidays have to be stressful and tedious? Backpack makes sending out your newsletters easy and fun. And don’t forget to start a Tada list to keep track of all your card recipients!
A big special thanks to our friend Melissa Summers for the pictures she let us borrow of her beautiful family. There’s one holiday newsletter I can’t wait to get!
