Review and giveaway: Holiday cards from MyPublisher

It's unusually cold here in Seattle this week, so I'm having an easier time accepting the idea that Christmas is right around the corner! Another thing also helped me feel more Christmas-y... the arrival of our holiday cards from MyPublisher! Before I agreed to do this review, I visited the MyPublisher website to check things out, and was intrigued by what I saw there. MyPublisher says that they offer more paper choices, better envelopes, free shipping (to US addresses), and free envelope liners.  After I read that, I was definitely in for the review!

For the winter holidays, MyPublisher offers Christmas, New Year, Hanukkah and Holiday cards. For any of the card designs, you can include up to 4 photos.  That makes it easier when you can't decide what picture you like best!  On the MyPublisher site, you can view your choices by Best Seller, Most Recent, or by price (either low to high or high to low).  You can narrow down the options by color or by designer.  I wish that there were a few more options to narrow down the choices, as the number of designs to choose from was a little overwhelming, and I didn't really have an opinion about what color my card was or what designer to choose.

In the end, I chose the French Holiday card and selected the card type (flat or folded), the design color, the paper color, and the paper finish. Then I added our photo and our message to the card. And here's the beautiful final product!

I'm very pleased with our cards. The paper really is a nice quality, and I love the added touch of the envelope liners.  I thought the process of designing my card was simple, and the cards arrived just 10 days after I placed the order.  I received a gift certificate to pay for my cards, but when looking at the prices on the site, they are very reasonable, especially for such a high quality product. And don't forget about the free shipping and the free envelope liners! 

MyPublisher also makes photo books, other stationery, photo calendars and scrapbook pages.  Visit the site to see all the pretty things you can make! 

I have good news! I'm giving away a $50 gift certificate to MyPublisher! Open to everyone, but there are shipping fees for addresses outside the US. Visit this page for those details. Enter with the Rafflecopter widget below. 

Disclosure: I received a gift certificate to select cards to review. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
