product review: cardstore.com


it's always so nice to send greeting cards for different occasions, but let's get real . . . it can be such a hassle.  you have to go to the store, pick out a card, fill it out, address it, stamp it, and mail it.  well, sending greeting cards just got a whole lot easier thanks to cardstore.com.

cardstore.com lets you choose and personalize greeting cards, then they address and stamp the cards, and mail them out for you!  talk about simple.  you can do it all right from your computer, without ever having to leave the house.  you don't even have to get out of your pajamas!

recently, i was contacted by the team at cardstore.com to see if i was interested in doing a product review of their cards.  i was excited to see what they had to offer, so i jumped at the chance.  since valentine's day is right around the corner, i decided to make a valentine's day card for ryan.


there were over 500 options of valentine's day cards to choose from!

after looking through all of them, i decided to pick this cute card with a tandem bike on the front.  it was the perfect card since ryan and i just bought a tandem bike last summer and we absolutely love riding it together.


it was so easy to customize the card that i made for ryan.  i was able to choose how i wanted the layout of the inside of the card and the back of the card to look.  i also uploaded pictures to include in the card too.  it only took me a few minutes from start to finish.

after i customized my card, i got to see how it looked in the preview mode before i approved it.  i placed my order, and it was easy as could be!


i was surprised how fast ryan received my card.  he got it in the mail just a few days after i ordered it.  the card turned out really great, and ryan really loved it!  


i would definitely recommend cardstore.com to anyone.  it is super easy to use.  cardstore.com even has a free mobile app too, so you can upload pictures from your phone, and then create and mail cards while you're on the go!

right now, cardstore.com is offering valentine's day cards for $2.49 with the code CCA4312 through 2/7/14 which is perfect since valentine's day is right around the corner!

love, laurie

Wow, they take it one step further than Shutterfly or Vista, they mail it and you can order one card at a time. Beats running to the card store if you need a special card for someone.
The card you chose was perfect with the bike.

I love the tandem bike on your card. It looks like fun, but I don't think I'd have the coordination to ride one. It sounds difficult! Lol.

I am a huge fan of sending tangible, rip open the envelope kind of card (see how carried away I can get on this topic over at www.ritewhileucan.com) so the option to design and have it mailed takes it one step better than email any day! thanks for sharing. Visiting via "FamilyFunFriday" linkup
