I’m notorious in my family for forgetting to give a greeting card. Birthdays, Holidays, you name it- all those card-worthy events… you will be lucky if you see a card from me. I tried to change this all around about two years ago. I was introduced to Cardstore where I could order just one card or a bunch of cards for the various events going on. Picture this: we had 5 birthdays, 3 baptisms, 2 bridal showers, 2 weddings, and 3 baby showers to attend. That’s a whole lot of cards to get! When I saw an ad for Cardstore, I gave it a try and there has been no going back since. I love that I can personalize my cards and the recipients are always impressed that a greeting card from a store, not homemade, would have their name in it.
Cardstore has a huge variety of cards for everyone on your list. I love that I can sort through the different types of cards easily. Since I was in the market for Valentine’s Day cards for my husband and daughters, I thought this was a great time to sit down and pick a card in the comfort of my home. Ironically, this year I will be spending Valentine’s Day away from my husband. I’m taking my two girls to visit a relative in the south, so I wouldn’t be able to actually give my hubby a card on Valentine’s Day… or would I? You see, as I was placing my order on Cardstore, I noticed that they would mail out the card for me! All I had to pay was the stamp. No extra fees.. just the price of the card and the stamp. My entire order for one card came to less than $4, shipped to my hubby during the time we won’t be together. You can choose a date to send your card to the recipient during checkout, so I made sure he would have it on or before Valentine’s Day.
I’m done card shopping in the stores. It’s so much easier to order from Cardstore than it is to head out in 10 degree temps to the card shop, where my kids will want to touch every single Swarovski figure on the shelf, pull out all the cards from the drawers, and scream when I don’t pick out their favorite princess card to give to my husband. No no no, Cardstore is WAY easier. Check out the cards I picked for hubby and my daughters:
Isn’t it easy to always lose sight of the bigger picture? We are so focused on the hum drum of daily life and routines, that sometimes we need to be reminded that we are in this together. I thought this card was perfect for my husband! Once I found the perfect card, I was able to personalize it with our names and a message on the inside:
I really love this option:
For my girls, I wanted something that would remind them of “us.” This card below was perfect, they are my little flowers and watching them grow has been such an amazing experience. I personalized it with both their names. On the inside I wrote a personal message that my oldest will understand. My youngest is still too young to understand the meaning of a card, but my oldest will love it!
Now is a perfect time to get to ordering! With many options to choose from, you have the choice of funny, heartfelt, or simple cards that are perfect for any type of relationship. Check out Cardstore today to see all their cards and order your Valentine a personalized card today!
Yes! I *love* personalized cards! I used to own a stationery shop, and personalization was so hard to do well (and expensive to boot). It’s nice to have a service that makes it so easy.

I’m not familiar with cardstore but will check it out so see what options they offer.
That is a great service. I am always forgetting to send a card. It is horrible.
