Cards Direct Review

About Cards Direct
CardsDirect is quite simply passionate about greeting cards. In our electronic world where millions of emails, texts, and instant messages are exchanged daily, we know that a traditional hand signed Greeting Card can grab someone’s attention unlike most other forms of communication. Think back to the last time you received an unexpected card from a friend or associate . . . the appreciation you felt that someone put the time and thought into sending you a card. CardsDirect knows that a quality card, professionally printed with your personal message or brand, at the best value, is an effective way to promote yourself or company with others.

The hardest part of this review was finding cards that I wanted to order that did not cost me any money above the $20.00 credit. In order to get the as low as price you typically have to purchase in quantities of 100. (Not something I would normally do or need)  Since I am going to start looking into pen pals for Big J I decided to order her some note cards. The ones I found you could personalize with a photo so I choose one of her school photos and ended up getting10 cards that cost $24.00 with shipping costing $9.00.

The quality of the cards were very good. The paper was nice and thick which is great because Big J typically writes with marker. There will be no problem of the marker leaking through the back. The image on the front also came out great. There is also an amazing selection with photo cards, birthday cards, thank you cards and baby announcements. With Big J's 5th birthday nearing I have even been pricing Princess birthday invitations.

Overall CardsDirect is great if you are buying a lot of cards or if you are looking for some special personalized cards. 

Thank you to CardsDirect for providing me with a $20.00 credit. I was not required to write a positive review, nor was I paid for this review. All opinions are mine and 100% honest.
