I have to tell you... I get these kinds of emails very often, and i almost always delete them. It's almost always something I really could care less about. Or it sounds like it came from a robot. So, no thanks!
But Emma with Cardstore talked like a real person. :) And, um... excuse me... did you say, CARDSTORE.com?!?! As in a CARD STORE?! See, i love cards. I have always been a bit obsessed with cards. I still send snail mail... often! I love cards. LOVE THEM.
I've seen a few other bloggers review cards from cardstore.com before, and thought it looked like a cool site, but not necessarily better than Shutterfly or any other site like that.
Well, I have to tell you... I was VERY impressed with cardstore!!! :)
The ordering process was very simple, and their website is really cute (which is important, you know). I would give you screenshots, but i forgot to actually take screenshots. But I am pretty sure you can figure it out without them!
But y'all. My cards. They came out GREAT! I am thrilled with them. I love them!
I couldn't decide which pic of mine to use, so i ended up doing two of them. I did a rectangle postcard type card of my picture from downtown. It came out so crisp!
I chose the option where you can put a little something on the back. :)
For another card, I used the pic I took of a hydrangea at LSU's Hilltop Arboretum. The colors are so vibrant! I love it.
And i put it on the back, too!
I have to tell you that one thing i was VERY happy about is the type of paper it is printed on. I hate how cards I have ordered in the past, from other places, have that shiny kind of paper where your ink smears??? You know the kind I mean? I have cards from similar sites that I have never used, because I can't find a pen that will write on it without smearing or looking bad! But this paper??? Perfect!!!!
Another thing I should mention... on the same day i ordered these cards, I also ordered a few prints from mpix, and a few prints from Shutterfly. I didn't use special shipping on any of them. Just regular shipping. My cardstore cards came in first, then mpix, then Shutterfly. So, there's that, too. Fast shipping. :)
And there you have it! My review of photo cards from Cardstore.com!! Check them out! :)
