Review and Giveaway: Tiny Prints CLOSED



Nothing brightens my day quite like opening my mailbox, expecting bills and junk mail but finding a handwritten envelope with an announcement or card. The combination of sheer surprise and delight just puts a smile on my face. While receiving cards is fun-tastic, I also love to give cards with brief little notes written inside. The best ones are the ones sent just because. There doesn't have to be an impending holiday to let someone know you love them or you're thinking of them.

Being the girlie girl that I am, I love finding chic cards, invitations, notepads and the like. I came across Tiny Prints while searching for birth announcements after Nate was born and I've been a fan ever since.

Tiny Prints was founded in 2004 with the goal to "enhance intimate human connections through the tradition of sending paper greetings". In six years, this web-based company has become the gold standard for premium, personalized stationery. Their designs have been lauded by numerous television networks, publications and celebrities. Tiny Prints recently expanded their successful product line with the launch of Tiny Prints Greetings, a line of simple, stylish printed greeting cards users can personalize, schedule and send online. This new service unites proprietary web technology with the brand's trendsetting design sensibility to modernize the age-old practice of sending and receiving greeting cards by mail.

Benefits of Tiny Prints Greetings include:
  • Personalization - Never worry about giving duplicates again! You can match your favorite design with one of thousands of verses from a library of options. Each aspect of your card can be customized, with the option to include a recipient's name, edit the verse, and upload photos to express your exact sentiments.
  • Convenience - Not only can you personalize your card online, you can address the envelope, add a stamp and pay for the card with just a few clicks! You can send the card to yourself to sign or if you're jammed for time, Tiny Prints can mail your card for you! All cards ship within 24 hours so you can be sure your card will arrive in perfect timing.
  • Organization - Are you the forgetful type when it comes to those important dates? Avoid a mad dash to the store by setting up an automatic event reminder for birthdays, Mother's Day, anniversaries, and other occasions. You can even schedule a queue of personalized greeting cards to be sent automatically up to a year in advance, making the send/receive process more thoughtful and less time-consuming.
I visited Tiny Prints to check out their new line and WOW! I am very impressed with the selection of designs. Check out some of these Mother's Day cards:




Or these birthday cards:




I really like this one for Nate's 2nd birthday in July:



I love that you can switch up the layouts of the cards, add photos and/or personalize the verse inside. If you're like me, you spend WAY too much time in the card store/aisle trying to find the perfect card. I must read through twenty cards before I find one that I like. And even then, I'm usually just settling because my husband is rushing me or my toddler is getting antsy. With Tiny Prints, I can put my own personal touch on the card and craft a creative message that comes from my heart. All from the comfort of home.

I am pretty good at remembering special dates but I do have a habit of procrastinating and waiting until the last possible moment to get a card. With Tiny Prints' scheduling option, I can remind myself to get those cards out on time. Or I can just have Tiny Prints do all the hard work for me! No more scrounging for stamps or, in my house, a pen. Any busy mom can appreciate that.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a convenient way to give or send a beautiful, unique, high-quality card for any upcoming special occasion, look no further than Tiny Prints Greetings.
