Yesterday, I mentioned my top pick for photo holiday cards.
Today, I’m looking at the top 5 holiday card companies chosen by Good Housekeeping magazine.
Remember, the Good Housekeeping lab (technically known as the Good Housekeeping Research Institute) puts items through fairly rigorous testing before they will give them the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
I don’t know if there’s an official “seal” placed next to these companies’ names or anything, but GH says “these 5 sites delivered the best cards (on high-quality paper stock) for a reasonable price.”
Here they are (in no particular order):
Reasons These Companies Ranked So Highly
- At least one of them (My Card Maker) lets you print your own cards at home for free (after paying $4 for a one-day trial or $20 for a one-year membership).
- Prices ranged from $1.69 to $1.79 each for an order of 50 photo cards.
- Some of them will do most of the work for you. They’ll stamp, address, and mail the cards for an additional fee (about 50 cents each).
- At least one of them (Kodak Gallery) offers a choice of envelope color.
If there is ONE thing I like… it's C H A N G E! The four seasons and major holidays are my favorite times of the year to recharge — and redecorate. I mostly like to share frugal DIY ideas for seasonal home decorating and party planning (for both, indoors and outside). Because who doesn't enjoy entertaining at home?! But even if you don't host many parties, I think you'll appreciate my DIY hacks and clever ways to decorate your house for the major holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Because those are the times when people tend to have the most visitors and overnight houseguests.
