I absolutely adore giving and receiving greetings cards, as ever since my childhood when a pretty coloured birthday envelope would plop onto the doormat I’d bound over to it like an enthusiastic puppy and fumble to tear it open and look inside; although the same can’t be said for bills and bank statements. But now I get to enjoy the magic of seeing my cheerful children’s faces light up when they get their birthday post, and having something personalised, thoughtful and heartfelt makes an occasion all the more special for it. Here we’ve created some festive family Christmas cards with Square-Snaps to give to friends and family.
Square-Snaps are a site that allow you to print your Instagram or desktop photos in polaroid style, squares of different sizes and make them into canvases, photobooks and greetings cards. The website is bright, fresh and incredibly easy to use as my order was complete from start to finish in just a few clicks. And when you’ve checked out the pictures are immediately printed onto gorgeously thick quality card with luscious envelopes to really make them stand out as a cut above the rest, arriving on the doorstep within a couple of days.
Here we have created two kinds of cards, the first being Millisent and Gabriele together to give to their beloved grandparents, and the second being a stack of merry Millie’s for my daughter to hand out to her school friends and teachers. We also received an hilarious Christmas card from Square-Snaps with a soppy looking dog wearing a Santa Claus head bobble which is now perched proudly on our mantlepiece.
The 15.2cmx15.2cm cards have been printed beautifully with vivid and rich colours that glisten and shine because of the high-gloss finish, and as far as greetings cards go these are certainly the best we’ve seen. It’s a fabulous way to capture and cherish your most special pictures and memories, and you can crop, rotate and edit each one through the easy-to-use website to create your own masterpiece.
The greetings cards cost just £0.99 each including envelopes, with a minimum order of 10. And up until December 18th 2014 Square-Snaps are offering a fabulous 10% off every order when you use the code “TK10” at the checkout.
