Have you ever ordered invitations, cards or announcements online? Have they met your expectations? I will be honest and let you know that I have ordered cards online before and was let down with the results. That was until I started planning CS's 3rd birthday party. That all changed when I ordered our invitations at Hallmark.com.
Hallmark.com is an awesome website! They have all kinds of invitations to choose from. I picked the card below for CS's invitations. It was the cutest invitation ever. I had so many compliments on it and when they ask me where I got them, I said Hallmark.com. I loved how easy it was to personalize it! The back of the invitation can be personalized as well. I used the back to put a few ideas for gifts and list her clothing size, so family/friends didn't feel like they had no idea what to get her. Although, the first line on the back stated that "no gifts are necessary", I'm also realistic and knew they would want to get her something.
Now, the part I am really loving on the site is the Christmas and Holiday selection of items. With 3 kids and a few more obligations than I care to mention, I was thinking of not even sending Christmas cards this year. That idea has since been pushed out because I fully intend on using Hallmark.com for my Christmas cards! I mean, how easy is it to choose a card design, plug in some cute kid pictures, type in some addresses and the date I want them mailed? Trust me, I'm a lot faster at typing than handwriting each card. The best part is that THEY MAIL THEM FOR YOU!!! No kidding! You CAN have them sent to you and then you mail them out, but why? Stamps cost the same no matter how you slice it. I'd much rather allow Hallmark to mail the cards and give me one less item on my holiday to-do list. So, which card(s) am I loving? Well....
I love this one! It has a retro feel to it and I can place more than one picture on it! Yet, there is another card I am planning on purchasing for those people who live across the miles that we don't see quite as often as we'd like. For them, I'm thinking the card below will work perfectly!
Hallmark.com's newest arrival is their Personalized Baby Announcement section. In it you will find baby announcements, shower invitations, plates and even thank-you cards. All of these can have pictures put into them. Plus the added convenience of making them from home...woot! I know I would have LOVED this as a new, tired, half asleep Mom! If I could go back in time and pick out the baby announcements we did for A, I would have chosen the one below. It is so cute!! I love the pink roses in the corners and that more than one photo can be used!
