I’m not usually too excited when someone bangs on my door on a Saturday. Last one was no exception. But afterwards, when I opened my door and discovered the FedEx guy had delivered my holiday cards from Tiny Prints just three days after I ordered them, I was shocked!
This year I got 50 ornament holiday greetings, which you see here. (of course, the actual greetings had to be censored. I know some of your mailing addresses and I still want you to be surprised!)
I can tell you that the cards: 1) have a family photo from my personal collection;
2) have a personalized greeting with our names on the card so our hands don’t get tired from all the signing; and
3) are on quality, glossy cardstock. (I did have the option of choosing matte, FYI).
The greetings came with their own envelopes and because they are ornament greetings with perforated holes, they came with ribbons that I’ll use to tie on these cards when it’s time to send them off.
I chose the ornament greetings because I know cards can sometimes be difficult to display, and I thought it might be nice if some of the recipients had a greeting from my family to hang on the tree, a coat rack, a doorknob, a push-pin on a bulletin board, etc.
Note that this photo reveals both sides of one card; you don’t get two cards per greeting.
I was very astonished at the size of the cards when they arrived! They are much larger than they appear in these images.
So I grabbed a photo of the back of one of my cards next to an everyday household feature to give you a better idea.
I don’t know about you, but I was certain the cards would be closer in diameter to the width of this phone jack. but they’re not! They’re very large, are great for high-resolution photos and really do make a unique statement.
Keep in mind that since these cards come in square envelopes, the postage for them will be more than the going letter rate (most likely 64 cents as of 11/21/11). I’m disappointed that the United States Postal Service doesn’t offer a lot of seasonal variety in 64-cent stamps, so I will probably forego snazzy commemorative postage, have the envelopes metered and get some nice envelope seals instead.
Besides, from what I recall, the USPS does make its metered postage merrier and brighter during this season, so hopefully there will be some added holiday cheer on the envelope’s exterior.
This is my third item to receive from Tiny Prints, and I am still impressed with what they’ve been able to do to personalize the way I send a simple “Hello” through the mail. Right now Tiny Prints is having a 20 percent sale on all its holiday cards, so I suggest you check out the catalog and see what you can find! Lots of quality products available for you to choose from!
