Joyous 8-Bit Greetings

The Space Invaders Christmas Card Celebrates the Season with Geek Culture

— December 19, 2011 — Special
'Tis the season to be geeky is what the Space Invaders Christmas Card says to everyone who has a soft spot for retro arcade games.

Etsy shop RumplestiltskinDes designed the Space Invaders Christmas Card for those who wish to celebrate the joyous season with a vintage gamer's touch. The images show the aliens in their pixelated forms in color, which is a new look for the creatures. The characters have been assembled in the form of a Christmas tree with the words 'Merry Christmas' written in red below it. The inside is left blank so that the sender can write his or her own personal message.

The Space Invaders Christmas Card is a set of limited edition prints so it's best to grab these as soon as possible.
Trend Themes
1. Retro Gaming Christmas Cards - Designing holiday cards that incorporate retro gaming graphics and culture could bring a new level of nostalgia during the holiday season.
2. Personalized Holiday Greetings - Leaving the inside of the card blank provides the opportunity for senders to craft personalized messages that may resonate more with recipients of the card.
3. Limited Edition Art Prints - Limited edition prints add an air of exclusivity that could intrigue and prompt customers to purchase more quickly.
Industry Implications
1. Greeting Cards - Greeting card businesses can consider tapping into the nostalgia for retro gaming culture to design cards that appeal to a particular generation.
2. Art and Design - Art and design businesses can create limited edition prints of custom or trendy designs to create a sense of exclusivity for customers.
3. E-commerce Retail - E-commerce retailers have an opportunity to sell retro gaming-inspired holiday cards to customers, either through their own online store or on platforms such as Etsy.
