Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help!

Jenn, Is this your first year sending cards? We can make note of the international postage next year in the message. I took for granted that It's one of those things most of us know.

Kelly has been doing the card exchange since the start and i just always know she needs a special one, i also sent one to Germany and that is also $1.20 to send.

glad you were able to get the card back!

I have 4 cute husky cards on my door so far!
I underestimated my card count and had just enough, 110 cards in the mail, thank goodness for those 10 free ones from shutterfly or i would have been short!


110!?!
affraid  


I ordered 30 this year and still have almost half left. Lol.

I ordered 30, too, and had lots left for family and friends, although I probably should've ordered 40. Note for next year!

Seriously, though, 110?! That's a lot. Shocked

Mine are going to be a little bit later than I said they would be. I had decided to do the flat cards like everyone else is doing (and I did it from my iPad too <pats self on back> ) but it looks like they'll be here by the end of the week Sad I'm really happy with the look though! I really hope you all like it!!! The way the card is designed, Mishka is sitting in snow!

Jimmy - mine shipped yesterday and are now in Urbancrest, OH to be "inducted" into the post office...I'm guessing they'll be here Thursday. I just hope I like them - I didn't think I'd like the glossy so I ordered the matte finish...but Liz's and Ronin's are glossy and they look terrific. I hope I didn't make a mistake with the matte...

Since our mail arrives in mid-afternoon, mine will get out on Fri (or Sat if they don't arrive until Fri.)

Who did yours Amy? I went with Vistaprint. Got a good deal (I think) but shipping cost almost as much as the cards! Which took "good deal" to "meh", haha

I did glossy. I normally like Matte as well but like you said, the cards I've already gotten look excellent.

I'm probly going to do a seperate card for Kelly so I can mail it out earlier, like my original idea of a photo holder card. I don't want it to be late to her.

I used vistaprint too. Took advantage of the cyberweek sale but went with the economy shipping since Liz said she used economy and got them in 4 days. From tracking, looks like my are now in PA. so I think the 4 days looks about right.

On another not, I'm really frustrated. My computer is super boggy tonight. In doing the cards, I used up our allotment (of course Wayne was doing online training videos for flying, woodworking, retirement financial planning and CME) and JOsh has been around and he's always shopping for cars...and I was looking at real estate...Used up my last "get out of jail free card" to get usage reset to 40% but still seems like molasses in January.

So, mine are probably going to be late. Aaron finally f$@!ing got around to editing the picture we took. A month ago. So we're ordering the cards and they'll get sent as soon as I have them. At least I got my SS gift in the mail on time Razz

I've received two cards so far:
Liz from MASS, and Ronin from CA.

Is Baby Tabby saying, "You've got me on my knees, Layla" ?

Leo is quite a striking red. How did he get the mud nose?

I love this!
Hubs was curious last night as I got four cards in the mail. Two were from here ( Liz and Ronin) ...he was all curious regarding the unidentifiable names on his part!!!! Haha I told him I am very popular this year.
I love the pictures I think I am going to cover a column inside my house so they are decorations!
My greetings started arriving at friends houses so you mine should start showing up too!!!!!

Colleen - I love the pictures, too. So far, I'm hanging them all on the front of the refrigerator (the new one we bought about 3 years ago that I adamantly declared NOTHING will be put on it...ok, Wayne can have the side for his stuff...well, I guess I'll use the sink side for my lists, calendar...this and that...but NOTHING on the front lol! ) When we're done with the season, I'm going to arrange them all in a picture frame and hang it...somewhere. Probably in the sunroom where I'll be making a new desk area for me. I just love all the cheeriness of the dogs, the people and the designs.

Got Erica's yesterday, bunches today:  Jen Bealer, Ashleigh, Michael and Colleen - the fridge front is filling up fast bounce bounce bounce   I can't believe how much pleasure this is giving me I love you

And...my cards arrived. They'll go out tomorrow. Not as vibrant as the ones I've been receiving, next year I'll choose pics with more contrast and probably use the glossy,but, they will do.

We also used Vistaprint, and this year I noticed our card printed a lot darker than before. Maybe they've been having issues there with their printer? Everything definitely looked fine on the computer screen. I probably should've chosen a lighter background color; that may have helped, too.

I used Vistaprint the last couple years and the cards came out better. Maybe it's just a fluke and yours will be fine!

Liz - mine is not a Vistaprint problem, its the pictures I chose were from a gray day in december and the background I chose used the same diluted color shades so it's a pale palette.  Then I chose the matte finish, not the glossy.  I am happy with the quality of the paper stock and the printing - just not my design choices. The card was exactly as it looked on the screen.

But - they shorted me 1 card.  Called them, they are printing a batch of 10 (can't do just 1) and sending them 3 day shipping so I can't complain. I did have enough for the list, though.

EDIT: Annnddd...they are in the mailbox bounce
