As I was looking for some new Christmas cards to add to our Retro Holiday Greeting Cards page here at Retro Invites, I came across some super funny Christmas spoof cards.
Each of the following features a fun retro image along with a funny saying that some of you might find mildly offensive, a little rude, or possibly even downright disrespectful. If you do, I apologize in advance and beg you to keep in mind that I'm only the messenger.
If you think the following off-color cards are hilarious. Enjoy!
You can personalize these and add your own message to the inside. They each come with a white envelope and a 100% satisfaction guarantee from the manufacturer. The guarantee is for the printing quality, not the humor. No one can guarantee that your friends won't find these cards off color for the holiday season.
That said: Here's a few of our favorite funny retro Christmas cards.

Long ago, postcards were the popular way of staying in touch and sending holiday greetings. I'm all for bringing back that tradition. Text messages and emails just don't seem like enough and writing out cards sometimes feels like too much. A quick hello on a postcard doesn't take much time or money and, I think, it really shows that you care.
