Wedding Stationary Reviews

Back in December, my pal Ashley at Bride on a Budget hosted a giveaway. (she hosted lots of giveaways, but this one I actually won!) It was for some personalized stationary/thank you cards from Gifts in 24.

My information was sent off to them in December and when I hadn't heard anything in February, I contacted Ashley; who let me know that when she got her items from them they took FOREVER and to just sit tight. Considering I'm still 5 months out from the wedding now - I wasn't in a hurry. But in March and April when Ashley followed up again (and I followed up once as well) Gifts in 24 didn't have any record of my order or the contest or anything. And they were unwilling to work with Ashley to make it right. So, boooooooo on them. Seriously.

BUT, what did work out well is that Ashley worked her magic and was able to give me an alternate prize. And what a prize it was! The fine folks at Vistaprint offered me 100 free thank you cards. They even threw in expedited shipping, since I'd already waited so long for my prize.

I have ordered from Vistaprint before and was very impressed with their business cards (We had our photo sharing cards printed through them) but the thank you cards were even better. We had them printed on linen paper - and they fit nicely with the sunflower theme of our wedding. Besides, it's the first thing I have with my new name on it! And I adore the printed pattern on the inside of the card too.

So, a big thank you to Vistaprint and to Ashley!

Do you know what's hilarious? Those are the EXACT thank you cards & design that I've been looking at for all of our invitations!!!

Love the choice, hehe. :)
