DIY Graphic Design Projects You Can Use This Christmas

Christmas is around the corner and what better way to express your graphic design skills?

From Christmas cards to designing a unique gift. At Gareth Wright Design, we are going to give you some inspiration to recreate this festive season.

Christmas Cards

If you’re stuck on finding the perfect Christmas card, why not recreate your own? Apps and software such as Procreate or MediBang are great free software to use if you want to design your own unique Christmas cards.

When exporting and printing your design, you can purchase a high-quality craft card or have somewhere like Vistaprint print your designs for you. This is a great way to personalise cards and create a one-of-a-kind greeting card for someone special in your life.

Art Prints

A sentimental way to capture the personality of your loved one, an art print in a nice frame can make a lovely gift that they can showcase with pride in their home or workspace!

To start, set up a template to create your design on (we recommend A5), and make sure to keep all components inside the border to ensure nothing is cut off and design away!


Stickers and labels are a thoughtful way to gift wrap your presents for Christmas. You can purchase sticker paper online or send your design to someone who will professionally print your design into individual stickers or labels. Places like Vistaprint or Etsy are reliable services to have stickers and labels printed. These will look awesome with your designs on them and add that extra touch of love.


Over the years, custom mugs have been an excellent way to capture someone’s favourite things into something they will use almost daily. Whether this is a photo or something you have digitally designed on software, this is a sweet gift to give to someone no matter your budget. They can be printed for as cheap as £6 and delivered within 48 hours. In certain areas, there are also stores that can print mugs for you to pick up the same day like Boots Photo.
