Buy The Best Greeting Cards, Birthday Cards, Thank You Cards, Christmas Cards Here!

Updated on August 27, 2011

Yes, you can buy the best here - greeting cards, birthday cards, thank you cards and christmas cards!  We have the links to the very best!

The most convenient way of purchasing these really are by buying online. In this article, we look at shopping ideas, personalized online cards and a selection of bulk hand-picked cards that help to make your point!

There are three ways of purchasing greeting cards. You can get them personalised via the Internet and dispatched directly from your chosen company, to land on the reciever's door mat. You can buy them from Internet companies like Amazon, for example, sent to you for you to personalize and pass on. Or you can buy them the conventional way - High Street shopping!

Purchasing Greeting Cards, Gifts Or Any Form Of Shopping In A Shop Is Not For Me!

Now, I'm not a fan of High Street shopping. I don't like the hustle and bustle, people knocking into you, you knocking into them and being bogged down with shopping bags. You could say 'it's not my bag, man' and you would be right!

Shopping For Cards

Queuing drives me mad. It always pains me when I have waited, what seems like ages, at the checkout, to notice the queue behind me huffing and puffing because they too are getting impatient. I always look quite anxious as I desperately try and find the right end, the right side and the right angle to slip that credit card into that checkout gadget. Is anyone watching, whilst the bored checkout operator looks at the clock in anticipation for home time!

No, purchasing greeting cards, gifts or ANY form of shopping in a shop is not for me!

Personalized Online Greeting Cards

If I want to buy something special, in a hurry and want it posted in my behalf, I have found that buying personalized online greeting cards a great method.

Whether it is birthday cards, thank you cards or Christmas cards, I love to scan the Internet, pick the card and have it personalised to the personality of the special people in my life.

I have a terrible memory for special occasions - I rarely know what day of the week it, yet alone that we are approaching a special day for my loved ones - so I set my computer to remind me a week before that special Birthday.

Let me add, it is Birthday cards I particularly have a problem with - Christmas cards can never be forgotten because we are constantly reminded of this event daily, the closer we get to the 25th December! And yes, for those special people, I like to buy them a card with that special Christmas wish from online sources.

Sometimes I like to surprise people. There is nothing more heart warming when people receive personalised thank you cards, get well soon and something to just make them laugh, pop through the letter box. People need to know they are being thought about, and what a lovely way to do it!

Online Greeting Cards

So, horses for courses, we have everyone else that we need to cater for. These are work mates, acquaintainces and neighbours. For those, I tend to buy good quality selection boxes of cards.

Buying these online greeting cards in bulk are not only cheaper but they are always on hand when I need them. Remember that I am lacking in the realms of meaningful celebration dates - I often forget my own special occasion's, so what hope has anyone else?

Amazon - My Favourite For Bulk Online Greeting Cards

Where is my favourite online shop? It has to be Amazon. I love this store - it is the hallmark of convenience - a true convenience store! As they say, themselves, and you are done! It really is true.

Anyway, take a look of these special selections that I have selected for you...

Review comments like these, should not be ignored:

  • 'A little late for Christmas card review but I have been somewhat disappointed with the cards I find at the local stores. I was so pleased to find that these cards which you can't see by the pictures are of excellent quality. Nice paper products, vibrant ink. It reminds me of the cards we sent out many years ago... and that is a good thing.' (City Scenes Christmas Cards).
  • 'I used these as gift cards for my daughter's teachers at the holiday. The price is good and the cards made me smile.' (Party Penguin Cards)
  • 'I first saw these at a store and thought it was a beautiful collection. Each of the 26 cards are different, one for each letter of the alphabet (Y is for Yule log, etc.). So every recipient will get a unique card. The cards are rather petite, but they felt high quality, sturdy and well made. The pop-ups ranged from a static 3-D scene to some basic movements, like a smaller "To:" gift label that pops out of a scene, another card is of the nutcracker figure that closes its mouth. The messages inside each of the cards varied as well, some said Merry Christmas, others said Happy Holidays.' (Christmas Alphabet Cards).
  • 'I ordered my Christmas cards this year through and I'm glad I did! This particular design was beautiful and of very good quality. The design shown on the front was continued on the back of the card and covered the entire back. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again next year. I was extremely pleased.' (Caspari Range)
