I hate card shopping.
You go to the brightly lit store (florescent lights do nothing for my complexion) and look at rows and rows and rows of overpriced cards. Paper. There's a genre for everything! Funny! Sarcastic! Sappy! Generic! Show your emotion, appreciation, and love for the recipient, for the bargain price of 4.99 and up! They've got organic! They've got shoebox greetings! There are children crawling all over my legs as I pick up and read card after card in an attempt to make the intended recipient smile.
It's not pretty. Of course, the dollar store has more reasonably priced cards, but I still have to drive there, and wrestle two kids while I sift through row after row of missives. It's not what I'd call fun.
I recently found an alternative to the generic offerings of the local mass market retailers. Snapily,offers great 3d animated cards. You simply pick two pictures you like, along with a format, and give them a couple of days to create your masterpiece! And the price? Totally reasonable, about the same as one of those mass market cards.
Plus, I can shop from home. With gas prices being so high, that's a big deal. In addition to the already reasonable prices, Snapily is offering a Mother's day promotion. , up to fifty percent off. You simply choose the discount you wish to purchase, much like a restaurant.com gift card, and then spend the code on any of their many personalized gifts. We're talking notebooks, scrapbook pages, business cards and bookmarks. How happy would Mom be with a personalized 3D card of her darling grandchildren with a special message from them on the back?
I received one of these 3D cards for review, and it's just lovely. I wasn't super in love with envelope that came with it, but I've got something prettier on hand.
You can find Snapily on Facebook,and don't forget to check out their Mother's day discount promotion. You could get all your Mother's day shopping done right now!
