Review and Giveaway!

I love taking photos of my children and even more, I love being able to use the best ones for something resourceful other than just keeping it in a frame.  Often I have turned them into cards but my one downfall is getting sucked into the minimum order and then I have cards taking over my desk drawers that get “old” faster than I can use them.  That’s why I was so happy to be introduced to! From the website:  “Our convenient personalization tools allow you to customize your greetings with photos and special messages to create a one-of-a-kind greeting card they’ll never forget!”

Besides offering a variety of greeting cards, thank you cards, announcements, stationery, and more, there is NO MINIMUM ORDER! That means you can create an individual special card for every person on your mailing list, or one special masterpiece that everyone will love.  With Mother’s Day approaching, you can customize a card for your Mother, Grandmother, Mother-in-law, or any other “Mom” in your life that will be perfectly suited  and personal to her and her alone.  What a great idea!

I love this card.  Classic and beautiful!

I love this card. Classic and beautiful!

Uploading the photo I chose to was effortless.  It took just a few minutes to customize the text I wanted and just a few short days later I had my cards.  I was really impressed with the turnaround time!  The cards are beautifully done, the paper is a great weight, and the colors vibrant.  The best part is that the cost of a personalized card is about the same or maybe even less than what you would spend for a regular greeting card at your local store! has a card appropriate to any occasion you can think of.  It seems like April and May are loaded with big life events….besides Mother’s Day there are Graduations, Summer Weddings approaching, First Communions, possibly even new beginnings for someone who has recently moved.  You name it, you can find a card for it at

I can’t wait to see what occasions you can use for!  Like me, I am sure you will find yourself going back again and again.
