Where should you go for the best quality graduation cards or open house cards for your upcoming graduation? There are so many places to choose from, so we thought that we would highlight a few of our favorites that you can find on the web.
We love Mpix. This is our go to lab where we direct all of our digital clients to go for all of their printing needs. Things that we love about Mpix is their amazing quality, great prices and fast turnaround time. Mpix is a division of Miller’s, a photo printing lab that is only available to professional photographers. We know that when we send our clients to Mpix to handle their printing that they are going to get professional quality color and options. Their assortment of graduation cards is extensive! You’ll also receive free shipping as a new customer with an order of $50 or more.
Minted.com offers so many beautiful options for graduation cards. Their choices of finishes and paper are equally impressive as their design choices. Their website states that: “This is where great design comes from. Minted connects you with the best independent artists to bring you endlessly fresh, truly unique art, stationery, and home decor you won’t find anywhere else.” You will definitely find a design that captures your personality and showcases your senior portraits beautifully.
Paper Culture has a smaller collection of cards to choose from. However, they are a company dedicated to the environment. They use post-consumer waste and wood alternatives to create their cards and with every order placed, they plant a tree. Be sure to keep your eyes open for their first-time order discount of 50% off your order. Right now, they are also offering 40% off graduation announcements.
My final recommendation is Etsy.com. If you have never shopped on Etsy, you are missing out on some really unique products and services. Etsy started out specializing in “handmade” items giving artists a marketplace to reach more people. What is so great about using Esty to find your perfect graduation card is the vast variety they offer. They offer options for those who want to print them themselves or also those who would like to hand that task off to someone else.
These are only four options in a myriad of online choices available. One thing that I always advise my clients is to use a more professional company for their printing. You have invested a lot of money in professional senior portraits and it would be such a shame to use an inferior lab for your printing, whether it’s graduation cards or prints. You will find that with a lot of quick one hour labs the color and quality is really going to suffer. Your beautiful images deserve the best color and the best quality.
