Custom Photo Cards and Invitations
Custom photo card sites help customers blend their photos and text with designer templates to create unique cards, announcements and invitations for almost any occasion. The sites we've reviewed vary widely, each offering a different range of designs at different price points. To help you pick out the right provider for your project, we've not only rated these sites overall, but also pulled out a few outstanding sites for different kinds of projects. Customers planning to order just a few cards will be happier with our small order favorite, while those who need to buy in bulk can get great value from our top site for large orders. Looking for a great bargain or a really nice, high-end card? We've got the right sites for that too.
What Is Custom Printing?
Custom printing sites offer a wide range of designer templates for cards, announcements, invitations and other stationery products. Users can then add their own photographs, text and sometimes design elements to create customized cards for almost any occasion. Common customizations include choosing colors, moving text blocks, cropping photographs, and adding elements to the back of the card.
Ordering custom cards online is an affordable way to get professional-quality holiday cards, birth announcements, greeting cards, party invitations, graduation announcements and much, much more. With a wide range of prices, styles, formats and tools, almost anyone can find the right fit for any project at one of the sites we've reviewed.
To test these sites, we ordered a custom holiday photo card from each service, at our own expense. We assessed the process from start-to-finish, including selecting cards, using design tools, talking to customer service and receiving cards. We also did extensive browsing and designing in every category of each site, including announcements, stationery and invitations, to get a sense of the available options, tools, pricing and designs.
Our reviews note what works and what doesn't, including templates, design tools, customer service interactions and delivery options. We also include photographs of each test card as well as screenshots from the ordering process, information about packaging, and pricing details for orders of various sizes.
