Are you ready? Have you ordered?

I’m talkin’ about HOLIDAY CARDS.

Don’t hate me… but… my cards are ready.

Our holiday cards

I made them at Stationery Market!

Oh I had fun playing around with my card options!!!

Christmas card

New Years card

Clearly, we had a mud theme going on.

I found more than enough card stylings to choose from! I was able to crop my pictures AND choose from some very pretty fonts..

I ended up choosing Florian for the greeting on the card I chose.

Nice, ehh? Oh yes they are!

OH THE GLORY! I am in love with not having to write my address or find more ink for my address stamper…

Stationery Market offers two styles of printing… standard and their platinum printing. Both styles use the best quality card stock… I’m talkin’ thick, GOOD paper. Sturdy. You order a card – you get a good card. Their standard print option offers the same card stock as the platinum, but the colors are less robust. The platinum printing method, however, is nothing but impressive. The colors are bold and full. Follow this link to read more about the platinum print method.

The main difference between the two is saturation. The standard card is still a great card. It offers a different feel. The Platinum print gives the card a more photo-like clarity, without the glossy sheen… that even a matte finish possesses. And because it is on card stock that is sturdy, the cards don’t tend to bow like cards made on photo paper.

These cards are different from most other cards I get year after year after year, and we are exceedingly pleased with Stationery Market. I say WE because even my husband – a designer who has worked in print media and knows a good print job when he sees one… is blown away by the print quality. To quote him, “I love them.”

Too bad you couldn’t see his handsome, smiley eyes when he said, “I love them.”

But Stationary Market doesn’t just offer cards for all occasions… They also create great personalized items! My girls are going to hit the lunch room with style come the new year with their CUUUUUUUTE lunch boxes from Santa:

You should really take a moment to check out their personalized stuff… Some SUPER cute and super fun designs. Nothing that you will find in any retail store. To be honest, I would love the Prepster lunch box for me. I’d stash my sunglass hoard collection in there…

Oh… and ain’t no one gonna be able to snatch my son’s binder by mistake:

From lunch boxes to binders to stickers to chore charts and place mats and piggy banks *takes a breath*… SO many cute things to go all personalized on.
