Ink Garden is another great way to print. They also allow you to print on the back for free!
Here is the step by step on how ink garden works:
Go to inkgarden.com
Click on 5 x 7 stationary cards
Pick a layout (vertical shown)
Upload your template we send you.
Choose a back template and upload a photo or write on the back.
Approve and order! I chose Natural Matte.
Right now inkgarden.com is having a 20 cards free promotion, so add HOLIDAYCARDS and see a $10.99 deduction.
Now the price is $23.80 with the new price! That’s $.59 cents a card for 40 cards! What a great price! See how easy this is? Have us do the hard work of getting your photos and card to look great and upload and order! EASY!!!
Many of you have asked me where you should print if you wanted your cards to look like shutterfly’s stationary holiday cards (printed on thick matt card stock), without paying shutterfly prices? Vista print is a great option and very easy to use. I am going to give you a step by step on how to use vista print and take you through check out so you can see how great it is!
Go to vistaprint.com
Step 1: Click on Holiday Cards
Step 2: Click on get started:
Step 3: Select what size and layout: (vertical or horizontal)
Step 4: Upload file
Choose not to put writing on the front by remove sample text and click next
Step 4: Choose what you want to write on the back. (A nice extra feature so you don’t have to send an additional letter with your card!)
Step 5: Proof and Check out
Here is where you choose what kind of paper you’d like to print on. If you choose photo paper it is a lot cheaper, but if you want 100 lb card stock like shutterfly’s stationary cards click on that. Its an additional $8.99. I selected that option.
Next it asks you if you want to personalize your envelopes (another additional cost). I didn’t choose that.
Step 6: Payment options
With the addition of printing on nice paper, and the option of printing on the back I still only would have to pay $.84 cents a card. That is still a great deal! If you choose to not use the thick nice paper, it would be cheaper than that!
