Custom Greeting Cards (Give-Away)

Those who know us well know that we are a little obsessed with taking photographs of our little man.  We have thousands of photos of him since his birth 21 months ago.  It's always fun to discover new ways to showcase them for family and friends.  Here's what I've been thinking about doing with them this week:


Uprinting allows you to create fun custom greeting cards and custom postcards.  As cute as the popular single sided photo cards are, I love the idea of a traditional folded greeting card (personalized with a photo), so that we can still write individual messages inside.

A few ways I'm thinking about using this service:
  1. Holiday cards (the obvious choice).
  2. Thank you cards.  How cute would it be to take a photo of our son holding up a placard that says, "Thank you," and using those cards throughout the year as thank you's for gifts?
  3. Blank notecards with a photo of us, maybe even reading together, so I can use it as a sort of calling card when I send out blog-related mailings.
  4. Happy new year cards with a collage of all of our favorite moments from 2009.
How would you use 250 custom greeting cards from Uprinting.com?  Start deciding, because...
we're doing another give-away!

Two different prize winners will receive:

250 (wow!) 7 x 5" Greeting Cards (Half-Fold); 10 pt Cover with matte or gloss coating

Full Color Outside and Blank Inside (4/0)

Shipping Must be Paid by Winner. Offer Valid for UNITED STATES SHIPPING ONLY.

  1. Leave a comment on how you might use the prize (required)
  2. Subscribe or follow Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile (comment to let me know)
  3. Tweet this give away (comment to let me know)
  4. Blog about this give away (comment to let me know)
Deadline: Midnight, September 3, 2009 CST (Hurry, this is a quick one).  Winners will be chosen randomly, announced in a post here, and contacted directly by Uprinting with a coupon code for redeeming the prize.

Disclosure: Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile participates in Uprinting.com's "blog sponsorship program." We will receive a set of greeting cards in exchange for this post.

I would love to use these as Christmas cards! I write personal messages in each card, so I always end up buying regular cards and just placing a loose photo in them.

I also would like to create some fun birthday cards. Perhaps with a pic of our son at his birthday party or perhaps a pic capturing a birthday scene (balloons, cake, presents, etc.).

What a great idea!

We have a 7 month old little boy. I'd love to be able to do photo cards of him for Christmas.

TravelingKailey said...

I follow your blog. Zack (our 7 month old) already loves books and has since he born. The very first time he crawled the target was books!

Michelle said...

I would use them for Thank You cards since I am always wishing I had them on hand when I receive an unexpected gift!

Dana said...

I'd love to use them for thank-you cards! Ella is always receiving cute little gifts in the mail from family far away, and photo thank-you cards would be the perfect way to send thanks. How fun!

Dawn said...

I think thank you cards are the perfect use! :)

I am new to your blog - came to it through your allergy blog. (I am the one who posted about my DS having many of the same allergies.)

I will be subscribing to this one too as I already love the book reviews!

I would use them as Christmas cards. As a single mom with a limited income, it would be one less thing I'd have to buy. Thank you for the contest!

I would absolutely use these for Christmas cards. It would be perfect. My husband and I have a dog, our "for now" baby :) and we love to feature his growth (and hilarious escapades) in our cards. We usually use Shutterfly, but this sounds like a great service and I would love to try it!

These would be awesome for general purpose cards. I'd get my initial on the front. The shipping cost isn't bad at all. If you buy your cards online you have to pay shipping anyway. I love stationary so this is very cool. Good luck to all, Heather

We would use these as holiday cards, although you came up with some great ideas of other ways of using them! I especially liked your calling card for blog mailings idea.
