Recently, I was contacted by www.GreetingCardUniverse.com and asked if I would review their cards on the blog. I love cards and stationary, so I checked out the site. There were some very cute and very beautiful cards, and I like that they are created by individual artists from all over the world. In the interest of an informed review, I sifted through every single page of cat cards on the site, and there were a lot. There were many different styles, from cartoons to paintings to photos (the paintings were my favorite). If you know what you're looking for, the search feature is pretty effective, so you can enter things like, "cat blank watercolor" to narrow things down.
www.GreetingCardUniverse.com asked me to pick out five cards. Here are the cards I selected (click the pictures to look at the cards on the website):
www.GreetingCardUniverse.com has a lot of options to personalize the cards that I didn't take advantage of, but you can add messages and even choose glossy or matte finish. The cards arrived only a few days after I ordered them, so the turnaround is quick. The resolution of the photo of the kitten looking out the window is a tad on the low side , but since the other card images were very sharp, I suspect the issue stems from that artist's original photo. In any case, it's still an adorable card.
Overall, I was impressed with the www.GreetingCardUniverse.com experience. The price ($3/card plus shipping) is pretty reasonable, and they have bulk discounts starting at 5 cards. They have a lot of beautiful artwork to choose from, their site is very easy to navigate, and the final cards are good quality.
And now for the giveaway portion of the post:
I am going to give away four of the cards I got from www.GreetingCardUniverse.com to two of you! I will take two of the USPS small flat-rate boxes, put two cards in each, then fill the rest of the boxes with whatever fun kitty goodies I can fit. Those could be anything from cat-themed accessories to cat toys and treats. (If you win, let me know whether you have cats as that'll be a deciding factor on the contents.) If you're located outside the USA, feel free to enter too!
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post expressing your interest. I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners.
Note: I was not compensated financially for my review of www.GreetingCardUniverse.com, but they did send me five cards for no charge. Opinions of the website and cards are my own.
