Custom Greeting Cards

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No hitch ordering We chose PrintPlace for printing our Christmas cards this year and were quite satisfied. I do custom cards which can pose challenges for many printing templates. PrintPlace's site was easy to navigate and I was able to easily obtain the results I desired. We will, in all likelihood, use them again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cards The quality of the prints are very good. The service was quite terrible, as it took weeks to get my design finalized and sent to print due to not being able to reach anyone with a phone call or email. But I am very happy with my cards and envelopes.

Create Impactful Messages in Your Custom Greeting Cards


Every time you print your greeting cards, customers feel extra special from the personalized gesture. Here's how you can strengthen the impact of every message through design and the materials used:

1. Select a size that fits and provides breathing room for all the elements.


We offer two standard sizes for greeting cards. These dimensions refer to the product size once folded:
  • 4.25" x 6" is what you usually see in bookstores and stationery shops. It is small enough to store inside an A6 envelope and deliver with larger packages.
  • 5" x 6.875" is recommended for those who need a little more space for their custom greetings

2. Print on material and coating that elevates the meaning of your greeting card.


How the customized greeting feels on the hand strengthens the impression it makes on the recipient. Choose from sturdy cardstock that shows how much you value every customer:

  • 10 pt. cardstock is slightly thicker than a standard magazine cover. We recommend this for businesses that need sturdy but lightweight and affordable cardstock.
  • 14 pt. cardstock is the standard material seen on most business cards and recommended for special occasions like birthdays and holidays.
  • 16 pt. cardstock is the thickest stock available. We highly recommend this for other meaningful holidays like Mother's Day, Valentine's, or Women's Month

You can also add protective coating that highlights the colors and visual aspects of the message.

  • Gloss gives your message or visual design that bright shine. This highly reflective coating also protects your card from scratches and scuffs.
  • Matte has the least glare and adds a smooth, muted finish that suits light and neutral colors. Perfect for lengthier messages that you'd want customers to linger on while reading
  • High gloss UV has the brightest shine and adds that much-needed pop for bold color combinations.

Want to include a handwritten message or write the customer's name yourself? Print custom greeting cards on 14 pt. cardstock that's uncoated on one or both sides. Having the surface uncoated makes it writable and provides that rustic, natural finish.

3. Add folding to build anticipation before revealing the custom greeting.


Both available sizes refer to the dimensions of the card once folded. If you prefer to fold them yourself, choose "no folding" so we can ship the cards flat with scoring that shows where you can fold them in half.

4. Complete the experience with personalized envelopes.


Add an A6 envelope to your custom greeting cards order. This inclusion makes direct mail deliveries or manual prep of your cards more accessible. It also gives an extra personalized touch whenever you send a greeting card.
