Shopping Around For Holiday Photo Greeting Cards.

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment


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

snapfish – I think their designs are more colorful than shutterfly  – 40 photo cards and envelopes $45.99 with discount code applied.

Costco – The best deal $14.99 for 50 Photo cards and Envelopes!  My choice this year.

A Strong Message From The Governor Of New York.

November 13, 2016 § Leave a comment

The state of New York has a proud legacy as the progressive capital of the nation, and that is more important today than ever before.

As New Yorkers, we have fundamentally different philosophies than what Donald Trump laid out in his campaign.

So let me be absolutely clear: If anyone feels that they are under attack, I want them to know that the state of New York – the state that has the Statue of Liberty in its harbor – is their refuge.

Whether you are gay or straight, Muslim or Christian, rich or poor, black or white or brown, we respect all people in the state of New York.

It’s the very core of what we believe and who we are. But it’s not just what we say, we passed laws that reflect it, and we will continue to do so, no matter what happens nationally. We won’t allow a federal government that attacks immigrants to do so in our state.

We are a state of immigrants.

We are the state that raised the minimum wage to $15.

We are the state that passed Paid Family Leave.

We are the state that passed marriage equality.

We are New York, and we will stand up for you. And on that, I will never compromise.

Count on it.

Andrew Cuomo
