FabulousStationery.com Review

Are you the type of person who loves to send cards in honour of special occasions? I know I am. I am always really good at sending “Thank you” cards whenever someone buys me or my kids a gift. I even once sent a “Thank you” card to the guy who helped me get into my vehicle when I locked my keys in it! Not only do I enjoy showing people my appreciation, but I also enjoy looking around for cute birthday cards or Christmas cards. My grandma and I correspond by mail (she says she is too old to get a computer) so I am always trying to find cute cards to write my letter on to brighten her day.

Today I am reviewing the company, FabulousStationery.com and let me tell you, this is like my dream website for cards! They have just about every kind of card you can imagine. FabulousStationery.com was founded in 2004 by 3 individuals with 20 years experience in advertising. They have created a line of modern, personalized note cards, invitations and announcements and calling cards aimed to be both versatile and unique.

They have quite the selection from a huge line of personalized note cards, various types of invitations (ie. parties, weddings, etc.) to calling cards (think mommy cards or business cards). If you are looking for a baby note card for either an announcement or a simple thank you card, there are 49 designs in the baby category to choose from. However, any of the over 500 designs can be personalized so if you see another card in a different category, you are able to use that design. I think flexibility is great!

Each of the designs are available in three colour palettes. Plus, every set of cards is designed by a professional graphic designer so you are guaranteed that each layout will be one-of-a-kind. Another very cool feature is the return address option which is included in each set. FabulousStationery.com actually prints the return address on the back of the card and when the card is slipped into their signature envelope, the address is revealed. So if they toss the envelope, they will still have your address on the back of the card. How very practical!

I received a large sampling of cards to review from FabulousStationery.com including party invitations for kids and adults, Valentine’s Day card, thank you cards from baby, personalized note cards, business cards and mommy cards. I also had a sample of the recycled eco-notes, standard stock and upgraded heavier stock cards. These are some very nice cards and I was excited to see the diversity of each card. Each card is professionally printed in bright, vivid colours and I love the colour combinations! The baby cards are really great and I know that I would definitely want to buy some if I were to ever have another baby. I received this one and thought it was really pretty.

The card stock is excellent quality.I like that it is thick and a bit of a glossy appearance. You have the option to upgrade to a heavier stock for an additional $5/set if that is your preference . I think the standard stock is great and would suit most of my needs.

I love the business cards and the mommy cards. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bright and modern designs! These are definitely the most unique cards I have seen in my travels online.

The recycled eco-card I received was cool. It is printed on 100% recycled paper that is comprised of 80% post consumer waste and is chlorine free. It is a slightly off white colour with a bit of a speckle that still looks great and is environmentally friendly.

I also liked the range of designs and huge selection. There are so many cards to choose from that you will be able to easily find the perfect card to customize to suit your needs.

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
