June 14, 2013 coupons


Nothing makes a bigger impact than the smile of a familiar face, and gifts are given even more personality when you can use some of your favorite smiles on cards and stationary!  Many of us know we can customize save the date and birth announcements, but now, custom cards have been made affordable and quickly shipped for all special occasions through!

I recently got a chance to geek out and order some customized stationary with so I could test out some of their adorable templates- they have Hello Kitty, Paul Frank and tons of adorable themes to pick from.  You can find a ton of great products from birthday cards, to thank you notes and customizable, personalize-able cards for every holiday, including Father’s Day.

Two things I loved about that makes them stand out from other card shops: Price and speed.  I ordered a set of customized cards including one I could ship to my dad, and it arrived three days later.  If you’re short on time, you can even choose to have the cards sent directly to the recipient. cards review


I always find that when I send a card to someone as special as my dad- Hallmark just doesn’t cut it. The cards are usually too sappy and they never convey the message that sums us up- “ridiculous.”  I want the memories to speak for themselves, not some anonymous card writer. had a huge variety of templates to choose from, uploading photos was easy and I had the perfect card that was hand crafted and personal in less time than it would take to paw through premade ones at the drugstore- win!

Also, I’m a total thank you note junkie.  My collection is always being curated to present the right design to match the sentiment of gratitude I’m trying to convey, from professional, to funny, to heartfelt, I want to make sure the card itself says as much as the note does.

Thank you notes are inherently personal- the very act of writing a thank you note is instantly more personal than many of the cards we send, but you can kick up the class (or the sass) but adding some personalized photos.  With, I chose some goofy ones (above) for my friends and family, some sweet ones to send as a couple, and of course-  I couldn’t resist a chance to order Paul Frank cards and the chance to make Max the pug an astronaut was too good to pass up.

Yes, Max is an astronaut with a monkey.  Whoever gets this one will have done something really, really cool.

Overall, I would recommend for ease of use, quick shipping and competitive pricing and fun designs.  The experience was great, the price is right and the quality of personalized cards is fabulous!  Plus, for those of us that are a bit behind on sending birthday cards and forgot about Father’s Day, you can create and mail cards directly from your computer- no fuss, no stamps, no lines at the post office and hoping it arrives in time!

    Oh these are great wish i would have known about this sooner. We could have put our daughter on them and sent them to her grandfathers. Good to know for our Xmas and Thanksgiving photos. Too late to order them now.
