Holiday Card Deals
Have you started receiving holiday cards yet? I’ve only received one so far. I ordered our cards last night.
There are some card deals available.
I ordered my Holiday cards at Cardstore.com with a 50% off code that is still available on their website. I purchased folded 5×7 photo cards with a large picture on the inside. I wasn’t finding the perfect layout of pictures on the inside, so I created my own collage of pictures to use as a single picture. This is the first year that I have ordered from CardStore. One of the main reasons that I selected CardStore.com is that they will print your return address and the recipients address on the envelope and include a FREE stamp. I had a few addresses that I needed to confirm and I like to have additional cards on hand in case I receive one from someone who wasn’t on my list. I was pleased that I still received the 50 card discount with splitting my order as 43 addressed and stamped and 10 with blank envelopes. I ended up spending $53 for 53 cards, 43 with addressed envelopes and stamps and 10 blank cards. $1 a card is a great price for folded cards. I just wish I had been able to get the cards done on Saturday at 70% or Sunday at 60% off. My only complaint about the Holiday cards at Cardstore.com was that I could not upload my address list and I had to type them manually. I was able to have them ship all of the cards to me even though they are stamped. I like to add personal notes to some of the cards and hand address them, so I was glad that I could have them shipped to me for FREE. I have not yet received my cards from Cardstore.com, so I cannot comment on their quality.
You can saveUp to 30% off cards from Shutterfly.com. Promo starts 12.1 offer valid for a limited time only! I ordered folded 5×7 photo cards from Shutterfly last year and really liked that experience and cards. They also have the option to print envelope addresses, but they charge $1 and mail them directly to the recipient. They had a few more options for the card interior than Cardstore.com, but even with the discounts available on their site, the cost was more than Cardstore.com. Based on the quality of the cards that I made with Shutterfly last year, I can definitely recommend them.
Picaboo offers photo cards and photo books. You can currently Enjoy 30% off Classic photo books, cards, calendars and collage posters. Use code POPCORN by December 8th. I have never ordered cards from Picaboo.
Mixbook offers Holiday cards as well. You can Save 30% on all custom photo products at Mixbook.comthrough Christmas Eve. They have lots of options for card styles. There have been several Groupon or LivingSocial offers for Mixbook, so if you bought one of them holiday cards would be a great use of them.
For a greener option, you can send holiday cards via email or Facebook with Cocodot. They also have printed cards available. Most of their cards seem to be flat 5×7 (or 7×5). For printed cards, I prefer the folded so I can include other pictures and a short Christmas letter. However, I am planning to send these via Facebook to my Facebook friends that I don’t send printed cards to.
Other great options are Snapfish, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart. I have used all of them in the past. Usually I pick which company I use based on a combination of price and who has the best design for the pictures I want to use.
