I've gotten them from Shutterfly, and Costco before.

This year I did Costco again. They had a card that matched our pictures well and it's 15$ for 50 cards. Can't beat that!

I go to mpix, shutterfly or our photographer will create a custom card for us. Like Amber, I go with one that matches our pictures the best. Also, since we do New Years cards rather than Christmas cards, I go with whatever company has the best selection.

I've ordered quite a few times from Etsy and then have it printed wherever prints pictures. I usually print my pictures through mpix.com because I hate waiting in line at the store.

This year I'm ordering from photoaffections.com

We just finished our photo shoot tonight... soo fun and I'm still digging "snow" out of my bra lol. So we will be using those photos in our cards and sending them to Costco. Does Coscto mail??

I've done Sam's before Magali but I'm sure they have pretty close to the same selection though. Might be a bit cheaper though.

This year I'm going to try Snapfish or Shutterfly. Wherever I can find one that I like.

Do we have a rough total for the list of people on the board doing them?

I usually do mine myself, but just started, and am definitely next year, going to point clients to my Tiny Prints Storefront Smile

I am probably even going to end up ordering mine myself through Tiny Prints this year, they've upped the weight of the paper they use to even higher than my lab, and I LOVE the designs on the back of the cards.

I'll probably use shutter fly again, i have a $20 dollar promotional card so I'm gonna use that towards the cards. Now I just gotta get a photo to put on the card lol:p

If you order from shutterfly, be sure to use a coupon code. They have 40% off coupons all the time.

Kristen- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Tiny Prints! Their stuff is sooooo pretty! But we send out over 100 cards, so I just can't justify the cost. Man, their stuff is cute though!

100 cards, you're crazy! J/K, we send out 75? I go a little overboard on holiday cards, but it's my industry, plus I'm obsessed with paper! I have a few designer friends too who share the paper obsession. Instead of loving clothes catalogues, we love our Paper-Source one, lol.
