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.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
