Pear Tree Review
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.
I’ve written about my love of Pear Tree stationery before, and I’m excited to help them spread the word that they have crossed the border and they are now available in Canada!
In perfect timing for the holiday season, I received a $100 site credit to Pear Tree for this review. I spent so much time in their 2013 holiday card selection and fell in love with card after card. I finally had to enlist the help of my husband to help me narrow down my choices. There were so many great options to choose from – tri-fold, shaped, photo cards, letter cards, traditional designs, modern designs, and even designs from the dog! The one we chose for our holiday card this year fit our style perfectly – it’s called Checkered Cheer. I love the simplicity of it, and since I can never narrow down my photo choices, it was nice to be able to use six pictures with this card. Personalizing this card was a breeze, and uploading the pictures I wanted to use took only a few minutes – and what’s neat is that you can now upload pictures straight from your Facebook account. Another fun feature of this card style is the backing – I think the red checkered design adds such a nice holiday flair. The Checkered Cheer cards start at $1.75 each and go as low as .87 cents each depending on quantity.
In addition to the fabulous cards Pear Tree has to offer, I love that I can get all the holiday stationery accessories I need from them as well. After adding my holiday cards to my cart, I went to check out the matching Charming Ribbon return address labels. It was an easy decision for me to personalize these and add these to my order. At only .33 cents each, these labels are an inexpensive way to add a little Christmas cheer to my envelopes.
