We’re not suggesting you can the Currier & Ives. Wouldn’t dare. But for a more modern way to say “Happy Holidays,” here are six great greetings you should stick a stamp on and send.

By  Rob Brinkley

1) Robert Sabuda, the crown prince of pop-ups, has you covered from A to Z, with 26 modern 3-D mini-masterpieces based on his best-selling book, The Christmas Alphabet. Inside: “Season’s Greetings.” $25. (800) 371-1669, www.runningpress.com

2) Star bright, star light. Designer A. Hucek created this perfectly modern die-cut, foil-stamped, foldout Hanukkah Stars card for — who better? — the Museum of Modern Art. Inside: blank. $16 for a box of eight. (800) 447-6662, www.momastore.org

3) Pass the pineapple. This handmade greeting brings Hawaiian style to your holidays. Childhood best friends Jenny Sweeney and Vicki Lidstrom whip up the whimsy from their Libertyville, Illinois, studio, even employing local housewives to do the glittering. Back: “A little sunshine at Christmas time … Mele kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day!” $5.50 each. (847) 816-8387, www.jennysweeneydesigns.com

4) The newest addition to the Museum of Modern Art’s holiday card collection? Imprintable cards that let you print your very own message. It’s as easy as removing the vellum sheets from the card, inserting them into your printer, and getting creative. Inside: whatever you want. $20 for a box of 10. (800) 447-6662, www.momastore.org

Irreverent about the holidays? Nobody serves up sass like Tim Mikkelsen and Phyllis Wright Herman, two ex-airline vets who formed MikWright, famous for its cards with vintage photos affixed to the fronts — and audacious zingers inside. One of our favorites: Everyone’s mom, aunt, or grandma, proclaiming inside, “I love it! (What is it?) It’s perfect! (What were they thinking?) It’s just what I wanted! (I hope they saved the receipt.) Happy Holidays.” $3.25 each; boxed sets with various designs also available. www.mikwright.com

Oh, how we love a merry multiple choice. Ex-copywriter Jennifer Boston shakes up a classic sentiment with a saucy take on silver bells, silver bells — or rather, silver “track hammer,” silver “panini maker,” even silver “corkscrew.” Inside: (shown): “It’s Christmas time in the city!” $20 for a box of 10.
