I Got Carded...

When Lauren at Cardstore contacted me and asked if I would be willing to use their site to create a card of my choice and review the process for you, I jumped! I had used them previously with great success and was excited to get the opportunity again. I decided to make a photo card from Elise to commemorate the Rev's 1st Father's Day.

The process really could not be easier, pick your card, then follow the step by step instructions to personalize with your photo and/or text. You can even scan your real signature in if you want! And the best part? They will mail it for you, now or at a later date of your choice. No going to sort through the greeting cards with mismatched envelopes at the drug store, no going to buy that one stamp that you need to mail a card, it really could not be easier. Your card will arrive to your recipient with a professional envelope, gold seal included! Here is the Father's Day card that I selected:


I first used Cardstore last Christmas. I received a really cool Christmas postcard (no envelopes to stuff!) from a friend and tracked her down on Facebook to find out where she had them made. She sent me to Cardstore. We designed our own postcard for Christmas and I was so happy with the results. Best thing about that process? You can upload your entire list of addresses into their system and they will do all of the work. I had ours sent directly to me without addresses though, since we pass the bulk of our cards out at the church. Prices are very reasonable, most cards range anywhere from $1.29 to $3.49 (and they give bulk discounts, perfect for save the dates, shower/party invitations, classmate Valentine's or Christmas), much less than you would pay in stores, and they are always offering different discount codes. I ordered 100 Christmas cards and only paid $30 after my discount. Here is our Christmas postcard:


They really do have a card for every occasion - up next for me will be cards for Grandparent's Day in September! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

*I received a code for a complimentary card in exchange for a review of Cardstore and their card making process. All opinions are 100% mine.*

I love making postcards for holidays, especially if I can add a note.
