Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I just ordered 1000 Christmas cards (way ahead of the game!) and they came out perfectly. Crystal clear printing. I uploaded my own design which came out great. Laying out the design (figuring out correct orientation etc.) was a bit tricky because of the nature of the product—however, the proofing process is so smooth with Print Place there's no chance of printing a bad design... well, unless you don't review your own proofs! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks perfect and professional! PrintPlace is by far the easiest and best company to order our printed products through. It's tough to find an online source that will print on all four sides of a greeting card without a stressful and confusing artwork/upload process, but PrintPlace makes the entire experience a walk in the park.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super low price and great quality I have never used this company and decided to try it for a client. I am not a graphics person by any means and I was able to upload a design and print with the help of their awesome customer service. VERY PLEASED and sending a new order TODAY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown Away by the Quality We were completely blown away by the quality of the printing, as well as the paper stock. It made out greeting cards look high-end and polished. The quick turnaround was a nice feature as well - we were able to do our mailing in plenty of time. As always, thanks for a great job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great print, could've been more glossy I ordered some greeting cards that I used as 'thank you' cards with my own design. Full color on the outside, blank on the inside. The thickness and quality of the paper is fantastic, the print and color looks just like it did on my computer, but the gloss could've been higher in my opinion. I think a higher gloss or an option for matte, gloss, etc. would be great. Either way, very happy with the results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value These cards were beautifully printed for the cost. I was hopeful that the matte aqueous would give it more of a velvety look and feel, but it wasn't anything special. Overall, great value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Business Christmas Cards The folded 4 x 6 cards turned out nicely with the exception that the color saturation on the inside of the card was irregular on several of the cards. There wasn't time to return but also I figured that the recipients might not be as picky as me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Cards The greeting cards were decent. The only disappointment I had is some of the ink was wearing of some of them. The customer service team was great when we needed them in a rush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay We had two batches of Christmas cards made. The two orders were placed within a few minutes of each other ... one batch of cards came out white and sharp, we loved them. The other came out on a paper with cream undertones ... it looked muddy & the writing wasn't as sharp. My boss was not happy with it. The cards however were usable and we weren't about to waste 1000 cards for a reprint ... it's just disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Printing great, delivery not so much First order got delayed and inexplicably returned to Texas. After a couple more days of trying to figure things out, convinced Print Place to rush re-print and rush deliver a new order. Feel like once the order started heading back to TX a new order should have been started. Delivery may be out of their control but their reaction could be better. And the original order did eventually get delivered over a month later.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So disappointed I had thank you cards printed for my daughter's wedding. They were promised for a specific day, but didn't come til after her wedding so I didn't get to see the hard copy before, the proof looked great but the actual cards were pixelated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor resolution despite hi-res pix I'm usually pleased with PP, but these cards look dark and pixelated. The photos were hi-res (I just had it printed on an 18" x 24" canvas and it came out perfectly clear.) I can't sell these as is.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disappointed. I have been a longtime custome. This order was a disaster. There were 6 component of a promotional campaign ordered on Oct 28 (# 8701761) invoiced at $850+. One of them (notecards) arrived with the fold processed as perforation. I was able to talk with someone nice who promised a rush reprint to arrive on nov 17. Today is Nov 22 and it is not here. The time-sensitive campaign has to be sent out incomplete. I spoke with another agent today on chat and he offers me a $20 discount for my troubles. He told me that the order only cost that much. Really?

Send Custom Greeting Cards to Celebrate Milestones With Customers

Be part of your customers' big moments with custom greeting cards. Send personalized messages to welcome every stage, from birthdays to weddings, a new child, and the holidays. Or write a heartfelt letter of thanks for their continuous support of your business.

These messages show customers you go beyond transactions. With quantities starting at 25, creating personalized greeting cards is fast, easy, and affordable.

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.

Custom Greeting Cards FAQs

Can I customize an existing greeting card?

Yes, you can upload the file you have on hand using the online design tool. From there, you can edit it according to the specifications of your card.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

Yes, you need to order at least 25 greeting cards. This quantity is recommended for small orders or for businesses that require sample sets.

How soon can I receive my greeting cards?

To receive the order faster, select Same-Day or 1-business-day printing. Go to "Get Shipping Estimate" below the online calculator for the estimated arrival dates of your order.

Will I save more with bulk printing?

Yes, a larger budget is well-spent with bulk printing. The bigger your order quantity, the lower you spend per greeting card. The online calculator will show the total and unit price based on your specifications.
