In this age of e-mail and e-cards, receiving a “real” greeting card in the mail is a real treat. I know quite a few of my friends feel that way, too, and as a result, I enjoy shopping for greeting cards. However, as with everything else in life, time is precious, and selection at card stores can vary greatly from one visit to the next. When the folks at Greeting Card Universe approached me about reviewing their cards, I was intrigued.
I got to choose a selection of five cards. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not really, considering that Greeting Card Universe has 680 cat-themed cards to choose from! I chose the thank you card above for its unique design and eye-catching colors, even though red is not usually a color I’m drawn to. I just thought the card was gorgeous.
This birthday card cracked me up. The inside reads “Mark this special birthday with your own unique style. Achieve the unconventional, and do it with a smile.” Now that’s thinking outside the box!
I went for cute rather than funny when I picked this Halloween card – who can resist a black kitten popping out of a pumpkin!
The other two cards I picked are birthday cards, and they’re fabulous, but since I plan to send them to people who read this blog, I won’t share them here.
Greeting Card Universe’s tagline is “any card imaginable” – and considering that they have more than 8000 birthday cards alone, I think that’s probably true. Their search function seems to be very well developed, you can search on pretty much any combination of occasions and themes and a wide selection of cards will pop up. You can even personalize the cards online and they will ship them directly to the recipient. The cost of $3.00 per card is reasonable, and they offer quantity discounts and specials.
