I just finished ordering my holiday photo cards and I don’t usually post stuff like this, but I’d like to share my experience. Maybe it will save you some time. First, you really don’t need to spend a lot because without sounding too cynical, the truth is most of your cards will probably end up in the trash after the holidays. As much as I love receiving my friend’s and family’s cards, it’s rare for me to hang on to them every year. So for anyone that would like to be more frugal like myself, here goes. I’ve used tinyprints before and love their quality and design choice, but they are the most expensive and their customer service is practically nonexistent from my experience. I don’t think I would trust them with a large order. This year I decided to shop around. All of the sites I visited have discount codes at this time. After trying out the various card designs and applying the discount codes I went with Costco. For anyone that isn’t a Costco member, for me there are 2 reasons and now 3 why your membership will pay for itself, 1 – car rentals, 2 – eyewear, 3 – photo greeting cards. Below are the websites I visited. The pricing for snapfish and shutterfly is similar, so since shutterfly is part of tinyprints I left them off.
tinyprints – 50 photo cards and envelopes – $73.16 with discount code applied
Costco – The best deal $14.99 for 50 Photo cards and Envelopes! My choice this year.
