This year, I vowed to keep our holiday cards simple. I took the kids to a local spot to photograph them myself. You might remember that it didn't go as planned, but after a lot of love for the silly photos on Facebook and Instagram, I decided to run with it. I found a fitting card design by Sarah at SugarHouseInk and she turned the card around in no time so I could rush to get it printed. I originally submitted the print order for Greetings by Costco (their new cardstock option) but I was completely turned off by their customer service when I needed to request a small change. Bad customer service = cancelled order. Instead, I revisited CatPrint and I'm SO HAPPY that I did! I used the full-bleed print option on heavy, textured cardstock. I paid a bit more for rush shipping but the entire project still came in less expensive than Costco's quote. I finished off the envelopes with some glitter and washi tape (thanks to 50% off coupons from Michael's!) and I got to use our new return address stamp from Alli's Creations (helloooo time saver!). I'm very happy with our non-traditional card this year and I'll definitely be using CatPrint again for invitation and card projects :)
