Cardstore.com Review and Coupon Code!


When my sister and I were younger and it hit the time when the Holiday Cards started showing up in the mail, we would take turns opening them up each day because we both never got mail ourselves and it was so exciting for us!

It was one of our little traditions :)

Now that I'm older and actually have people to send mail to, I've been participating in this longstanding tradition of sending and finally receiving Christmas cards for the past two holiday seasons now, and this year, I'm going for a third ^.^

Thanks to Cardstore.com, I get to be proud of my cards for this year! I had the amazing opportunity of reviewing one of their products on my site. Here is a little more about Cardstore.com and what they have to offer all of you::

*Unique Designs: Choose from over 7,000 designs from more than 70 artists. Select card styles that are smart, stylish, playful, original or modern.

*Get Personal: Create unique messages with up to 14 photos, 18 fonts and 10 colors!

*No Minimum Order: Create one card for someone special or hundreds of cards for an entire company.

*Eco-Friendly: Cards are printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper, and Cardstore’s carbon footprint is offset through Carbonfund.org

*Designer Quality at a Bargain Price: High quality cards designed by well-known stationery artists with no hidden fees. Cards are priced from $0.79-$2.79.

*Direct Mail: upload your address book and Cardstore.com will print and mail your cards at no extra charge!

How incredibly awesome is all that!??!

As if those above qualities weren't enough incentive to get you clickin' over to their website right now, besides offering a wide variety of greeting cards from regular "old-fashion" ones, to the newest trend of Photo Cards for all kinds of different occasions, you can find things like ready-to-purchase and or customizable gift tags, notebooks, and stationary!

I knew when I was given this opportunity, I was going to go for some sort of photo card since I've never had the chance to before, and I wanted to show off my pictures from my New York trip this past August!

My only complaint:: There was just so MUCH to choose from xD

Okay, so maybe that's not much of a complaint-I had so much fun going through and deciding which design I wanted, even if it did take awhile.

I do have to tell all my readers that I was incredibly impressed by the simplicity and ease of putting together my greeting card once I did settle on a design.

I'm an old-fashion kind of person, so even though I wanted pictures on my card, I also want to be able to write something inside to let the receiver know I'm thinking of them :)

I found the absolute perfect thing and went to work on creating what I had envisioned in my mind.

The best thing is even when I settled on a single design for my cards, the choices didn't stop there! You had the choice of multiple pictures on front AND inside the card, whether you wanted wording inside or preferred it blank, your font choice if you did decide upon wording...and that was just 1 of the 7,000+ designs that can be found on the site!

Sheesh O.o


Once you were finished with your card, you got to decide on what you wanted to DO with it/them::


I can only IMAGINE how much easier this makes someone's life-especially someone who, like many of us, are busy working jobs, going to school, being parents, etc.

I opted for the 'print return address on envelopes and mail to me' option, but if I was more organized and had things set up, I might have tried to go for the 'print return and recipient addresses.'

You all want to see the final product?

Whatcha guys think?!

I was more then thrilled when they came in the mail and I opened the package-The quality of the cards themselves are gorgeous, and I'm itching to send those babies out xD

I'm very happy that I got to work with this amazing company and I can't recommend them highly enough! The customer service was perfect, the process of actually making the cards was simple and easy, and the timing of receiving my package was extremely efficient.

Very well cone Kayla!!! The site is amazing and really easy to use.
I give up sending Christmas card this year because nobody returns them any more. Just e-cards, but I'm very old fashioned :)

Oh I love your card! I recognize where those shots are from...

I think the card is cute but only because you are in it! :-)
