Do you ever have trouble choosing the right greeting card for an occasion. I know I spend entirely too much time on the card isle of stores trying to find something that’s not too sappy but also isn’t generic and impersonal. It’s so hard, and many times I’ve lamented to my husband that I wish I could be a greeting card writer, because then i could make them with sweet sayings inside instead of weird ones.
This year I found out about Shutterfly and I am so excited!!! They allow you to log on and create your own cards (with or without images) and then include a customized greeting or choose from one of their pre-made greetings. I love this on so many levels!!! First off, I’m a picture-obsessed person, so being able to add a romantic photo of me and my spouse to a Valentine’s day card for him, is just perfection. It’s also really fun, because I was able to make some personalized Shutterfly from my kids to my in-laws. My kids have special names for them, and it was so neat to be able to put their names on the cards instead of settling for one that says “grandma and grandpa”, when that’s not actually what my kids call them.
Look at this card I made for my mother in law. I liked the writing in it so much I didn’t even have to make my own!
I was really impressed with how affordable the cards are as well. The cards I saw were all $3.49 each with free shipping if you have them sent to you. You can also pay for a stamp and have them shipped directly to the recipient which is SO convenient if you are sending out a lot of cards for something!
From now until Feb. 28th if you use the code SENDMORELOVE when you order, you can get 3 cards for just $6! You will need to order them before 11am PST on Feb 10th for them to arrive before V-day though!
I know that I have found the new place to buy cards for all occasions, it was so easy to use and I just LOVE the personalization aspect! Even if you don’t want to include a photo, you can choose from many beautiful designs and then personalize the inside. Which is also really nice, since I know I’ve been stuck buying an ugly card many times simply because the verse inside was the best. This allows you to choose from many pre-made sayings inside OR create your own. I created 5 cards and ordered them. Each of them turned out gorgeous!!!
I can’t wait until Valentine’s day when I can show them to my family!!! I love that Treat gives me a way to make fun and affordable Shutterfly for my family like mugs and stationary as well. They are associated with shutterfly, so you know that it’s an easy and fun process all the way through, just like shutterfly!
I’ll be uploading shots of my cards to my instagram later with the hashtag #sendmorelove If you get some cards, be sure to do the same so we can all see the pretty cards you create!
Do you ever get annoyed in the card isle trying to find a sweet (but not too sappy) card? Are you as thrilled as I am that there is this awesome alternative now???
