Storkie Express, Inc Invitations & Announcements with Style Review & Giveaway 9/24 - Winner Closed


An e-mail has been sent and she has 48 hours to respond before a new winner will be chosen by random.org.

Thanks to all those who enter and don't forget to check out Storkie for all your party needs!

I am really big into parties and making a big deal out of them.  Anyone who knows me knows that I go that extra length in ensuring every details is as perfect as I can get them and I spend hours looking for the perfect products to compliment my parties or special events.  I usually plan months ahead of time for Christmas and I'm currently planning my daughter's baby shower at the same time.  I had the opportunity to review complimentary Christmas cards and I liked them so much that I ordered baby shower invitations and photo stamps to match from Storkie

The product I chose to review was hard to decide as the styles were plentiful and all were appealing.  I chose the Christmas Cards Inventations due to the style and assortment that appealed to my wish for elegance this year with a twist of personalization and a huge "wow" factor.  Out of the 46 styles in this category alone, I chose the Rudolph Holiday Wrap and Photo.   The photos slip into the side pocket and can be fastened with an accompanying Glue Dot.  

The creation process is very easy and effortless.  When you create them, you have a sense of accomplishment as you truly did personalize and create something that reflects your personality.  Once you select the style of card you want, you click on "Click to Customize."  The next steps are equally as easy:

  1. Choose the pocket color (14 choices)
  2. Choose the inner pocket color (20 choices - some at additional costs)
  3. Choose the pocket seal color (10 choices)
  4. Choose custom printing or no printing
  5. Enter Family Name and Family Members
  6. Upload photo
  7. After entering the iDesign area, you choose the layout of the font, font, color, size and any other editing needed for the wording and the photo.
  8. You can choose to undo an action or start over with ease
  9. You have the choice to review the final product or entrust Storkie with the view and provide any special instructions.

There are also recommended items shown to help compliment your purchase.  The process was very easy and seeing the results in real time helps to make the decision easier.

The cards were just as seen and are beautiful.  They are made of high quality, durable card stock with elegant lettering on another piece of card stock that is inserted.  For additional costs, you can have the cards assembled or you can assemble them yourself and you can also choose matching custom printed envelopes.  The choices are plentiful and I like how Storkie provides a cheaper choice for those on a budget and the works for those that don't have to be as concerned with the money factor.  I was very pleased with the photo quality as well.  Every step of the process is quality driven and the customer service is just as good.

The other items that I purchased myself because I really liked the products and customer service were baby shower invitations.  White Shimmer Foldover with Satin Ribbon are both beautiful and elegant.  Priced at $2.29 but are well worth it again due to the quality and beauty of each card.  Just like the Christmas cards, you can have them assembled for a small fee or assemble them yourself.  For these, I did pay the extra cost to have the envelopes addressed to add to the pretty factor.  I also purchased matching photo stamps to add to the joy of our first grandchild.  When you create your cards at Storkie, they provide wording ideas to help the process be even easier.  It's so easy and the results are worth the minimal effort to create.  Storkie even has customer service available to contact before you order if you have any questions at 1-800-771-7867 from 8 am until 7 pm (EST).

Storkie also provided detailed assembly instructions for each set of cards and assembly was just as easy.  My daughter's fiancé was reluctant when he saw the invitations online but when he saw them in person, he loved them.  He thought they were beautiful and elegant and caught the essence of their first born.

Thanks to all those who entered!

Sping is coming and along with that is Easter, communions, weddings, graduation and so much more!  If you are like me, you like to have the perfect party and using formal invitations is right up on the "must have" list.  Using postcards is cost effective as it's cheaper to mail, friendlier for the environment and look great. 

Celebrate or Promote Your Business
If you are a business owner, who couldn't use some free promotional material to inform your customers of a sale or a special coming up?  What about announcing something new?  There are so many ways that FREE postcards can help promote your business.

The fact that they are full color on both sides, provides free shipping with a three business day turnaround definitely catches my attention!

When you choose UPrinting, you get to use their templates or design your own and you get a free proof.  I've ordered too many times in the past to receive something I was completely disappointed in so this is an excellent feature to me.

Some other great uses of postcards:
  • Recipe cards to give out or to keep yourself.
  • Reminder notices to send your customers.
  • School PTO/PTA notices and events.
  • The possibilities are endless!
Here are some postcards I created very quickly with UPrinting using some of my own artwork coupled with their features:

UPrinting is a one stop shop for all your printing needs whether you need postcard printing, promotional printing, flyers, labels, business cards, canvas prints, vinyl banners, catalogs and so much more.

Zazzle $25 Halloween Gift Certificate Giveaway - CLOSED - WINNER


Enter the $25 Zazzle Gift Certificate!

Zazzle produces many high quality, unique products from numerous sellers.  The range is almost unlimited and out of all the products I've ordered, I've never been unhappy.

The photo mugs are of amazing quality and you can choose the size of mug, type of mug and the color on some of the features of the mugs.  You can pick the usual type of mug or they have beer steins and the plastic/metal commuter cups.  I've ordered the standard mugs (I pick the largest size mug) as well as the commuter mugs and a clear beer stein which everyone who opened their gifts, were extremely pleased.

On my daughter's wall, I have a large print of my wedding in Hawaii of the two oldest.  It's a beautiful picture and Zazzle did a great job with the quality of the poster size print.  It was delivered in a protected roll container and had no damage.

I just ordered business cards of the Halloween theme to attach to my daughter's school bake sale in October as well as extras to place on the treat bags for the school's party. 

Last Christmas, I created and ordered my own customized photo cards for Christmas and they were the same high quality of any other place where you spend a lot of money.

When my husband returned from Iraq, I customized "Proud Daughter" t-shirts for the girls that had his name.  We wore them when he returned from the airport.  I also ordered customized horse t-shirts for my middle daughter.  All of our great quality and the printing was incredible.  The only thing to note is you have to watch the notes on the ordering page as they will explain if a shirt runs smaller than normal.  I'm not having problems with shrinking but they do tend to run small sometimes.

All in all, as you can tell, I'm a Zazzle fan and you can really create some great gifts with Christmas approaching.

The giveaway:

A $25 gift certificate to Zazzle.
