All-Occasion Post Cards from UPrinting

I was really excited when I was offered the opportunity to create and review a set of custom UPrinting postcards.  For the past couple of years I have used post cards as our family Christmas card so my first thought was, "Is it too early to get the family Christmas card together?"  I know -- that's crazy!  Instead I decided to design an all-occasion card that I could send out to people "just because".  We don't send enough pleasant mail anymore, in my opinion.

One of my all-time favorite quotes is "Never suppress a generous thought," from Camilla Kimball, the wife of one of our beloved church leaders.  When I was called to work with the teenage girls at church several years ago I took that message to heart.  If anyone needs you to act on your generous thoughts toward them, it's teenagers!   So I designed a little card with a pretty picture of the Eiffel Tower that said "tres magnifique" across the front.  Everything is better in french, right?  I kept a few in my church bag at all times so that when I saw one of "my girls" being especially nice, or if they did a great job singing or speaking in sacrament meeting, I could write a little note on the spot while I was thinking about it and drop it in the mailbox when I got home.  Too often our best intentions get lost in the shuffle of our busy lives and I didn't want that to happen.

Over the years I have sent out a bunch of those cards.  I don't know if they have meant anything to girls {I like to think that they have}, but it has made me feel really good so I have kept it up.  I just printed those first cards I designed from my inkjet printer onto cardstock.  Nothing fancy, but they served their purpose.  When this awesome opportunity from UPrinting presented itself, I knew it was time to make some nicer cards.

I was so impressed with the UPrinting site.  I'm telling you, the ordering process could not be any easier!  Just choose your options . . .


. . . and it calculates the price right there for you so there are no surprises at the end.  Then you get to designing!  You can upload a completed image or you can design your own using their site.  I uploaded my image . . .

 . . . gave them my shipping info and I was done.  Will you look at how beautiful they turned out?!  I couldn't be any more pleased with the product.


Here are a couple of other designs I created just for y'all to get your own all-occasion postcards from UPrinting.

  2. Okay, this comment is late, but I have to thank you for this post. The quote that motivated you to make and sent these sweet cards has not left my mind since I read this post in July. I found the talk that tells the story behind this quote and have been pondering it off and on for months now. Thank you for sharing!
