Where to order holiday cards?

I ordered from photo affections last year and they came out nice. I bought a groupon but of course ended up picking something that was an upcharge. Still, they weren't crazy expensive maybe $60 including the groupon.

I did the Photo Affections Groupon the past 2 years and loved the cards! Beautiful designs and nice quality.

I did the Staples Groupon this year. Not as many designs to choose from, but I found one that actually fit the photo I’m using better than any on Photo Affections. They just came and I’m super impressed with the quality.

I’ll never do Shutterfly again as long as I can get these deals!

Has anyone ever used Nations Photo Lab? I always get the ornament cards from Shutterfly, and I love them, but they discontinued them this year. Nations is the only other place I can find a variety of them. They are cheap though, so wondering if they are awful quality

I use Photo Affections every year and they come out beautiful. You can get great deals on them through Groupon. Chat Icon

I order from Simply to Impress so I get ripped off even more.
But to me it's worth it- I don't send a ton of cards.
And I get professional pics and my photographer only recommends mpix, minted or simply to impress.

Also, folded cards are a must for me. I like to write inside of them like a regular card.

It's once a year...;

Thanks for all the recommendations! I actually ordered from Costco! $13.99 for 50 cards :) not many designs and not what I wanted necessarily but, it was $13! And I had free shipping code!

Re: Where to order holiday cards?

Glad to read Staples has nice quality.

Every year I always purchase cards on Groupon for Zazzle - incredible quality, but I didn't see them this year. I was going to do PhotoAffections, but I prefer double sided and that was an upcharge. I ended up with Picaboo? everything was great until checkout and I ended up paying way more than I never did with Zazzle. Lesson learned...

I ordered from Staples this year and the clarity on the picture is terrible. We had high-res photos to work with yet the pictures are pixelated. I'm very disappointed.

I ordered through snapfish. Been using them for a long time and they have great customer service and quality.

I do cardstock, no foil (it’s pretty but with a pretty $$$) and back of card with print and pics (I write something about us this past year).

They end up being $45 for 60 including everything. They always have some kind of coupon on their site so you don’t have to go crazy looking or stacking.

I have been using Walmart Photo the past few years, the photos come out good and they're inexpensive.

I love Walmart, I love their matte finish (I don't like glossy cards). But, every year their machines at our local store go down, and the backup is crazy! I usually order my photo gift tags from them.

i got a groupon for photoaffections.com for like $20 for 70 cards and they came out great! I had never heard of the company before, but i got them very quickly and they have a nice scalloped edging on them. I would've paid over $100 for the same card on shutterfly

Update - I ended up getting the cards last night from Picaboo and they were incredible quality. All ready for the mail tomorrow. HA!

This!
I always use Snapfish. Great customer service and coupons. I always message them if they have a better coupon. They had 60 percent off cards so I asked them if they could do 70 percent off bc I just missed that sale and they gave me the coupon code for it. Got 60 5x7 cards, cardstock, return addressed envelopes and cost about $50.
