Default Display Board Christmas cards and more

All right I’ve been looking through the display boards For cards that look nice in your home or craft room.


I have seen several on Pinterest that say “MERRY MAIL” and I kind a look like that saying and that look, I can use to hang or clip Christmas cards on.

But I was thinking I might make it a little bit more year round and move it to my craft room for cards I receive or even cards I’m going to send out so maybe I can enjoy them a little more.
The words would be permanent, but a person could always decorate with embellishments, flowers, fall leaves, snowflakes Christmas mittens or lights that can be changed throughout the seasons

here are sayings I’ve Seen or come up with
Merry Mail
Santas mailbox
Mail oard
Believe
Spread Joy
Joy
#SendACard
Tracking mail
Card Den
The north pole express post

Which led me to my favourite thought so far
Express Post

Any ideas for the saying?
It doesn’t necessarily have to totally reflect Christmas or cards
I just want a unique title and then I’ll put string along the board to hang my cards.

I'm with Lydia,I really like
Merry Mail. I do t know about you but receiving mail that isn't junk or bills makes merry no matter the time of year so I think Merry Mail would work perfectly to display cards year-round.

Paper Love

I like Merry Mail but it is Christmas to me vs all year round.

Maybe a word that is how you feel about crafting...
Passion
Relax
Inspired

I always call it "happy mail" or "fun mail" whenever I get something personal in the mail.

I love some of these creative ideas, with Merry Mail at the top of the list for Christmas cards.

My board says simply "made by you". Those are the cards that I receive from my friends and customers. I update it with birthday cards and cards received for holidays other than Christmas. My friends love checking it out.

Thanks for all your input everyone!
I need to decide soon,

As suggested When thinking a word, I often use Enjoy Or Hugs

I like a lot of them, definitely changing my mind leaning towards
Paper Hugs as it would reflect me, definitely hadn’t thought of that

I love the idea, and may adapt it for my studio, if you don't mind.

Most of the Boards I saw I do not have a piece mounted over top like the picture I inserted above, I found out that the gal that makes the supplies to make these at our sign nights, says you can attach the top board, like where the MERRY MAIL is on the sample with double sided Velcro!
so I think I’m gonna make two different sayings, it’ll be easy to swap it out for different seasons if it’s just Velcro attached

Anyhow, thought I’d share that little titbit that I just found out about Velcro in case anyone decides to make one

I just bought a sentiment stamp from SimonSayaStamp that says
‘ a paper hug for you.’
so I am inclined toward paper hugs.

Just thought I would share my finished project. Put a few cards I made on the boards fir a better visual,
The paper hugs board still needs decor, thinking butterflies, the Christmas one is decorated with felt Stampin Up products I had on hand.
