Friday Find: Moonpig.Com Makes Greeting Cards Fun
You know how you have an occasion to buy a card, Valentine’s Day for example, and you totally forget to pick one up every time you’re at the store because you’re too busy being terrified you’ll forget the toilet paper? I am terrible at remembering to buy cards. Thankfully, Moonpig.com has come into my life and made that much easier for me.
I live most of my life online. I get my news online, I stay in touch with my friends online, I pay my bills online, and do most of my shopping online, so having a service that will let me choose, customize, and send greeting cards online is perfect for me.
These aren’t e-cards that were really cool for 30 seconds years ago. Moonpig.com has a huge assortment of greeting cards for all occasions, and they allow you to personalize them with captions and customize them with photos. It’s great fun! I made three cards with photos I had taken and they all turned out great. The cards I chose had options to customize the front, both inside pages, and some even allowed you to customize the back.
Mailing cards is easy with Moonpig.com. No more hunting for a stamp, or trying to figure out how much extra postage to put on that oversized card because Moonpig.com takes care of that for you. All you do is electronically sign the card, enter the recipient’s address, and the card goes off in the mail! As long as you make your order by 2pm EST (Mon-Fri) it is printed and mailed the same day. The cards I made arrived within 3 days of making them, which I thought was really fast service.
You can either send cards directly to your recipient or you can send them to yourself, which is what I chose to do so that I would have customized Valentines for my husband all ready to go. The cards arrived in a sturdy white envelope that housed both the card and the matching envelope inside.
You can also set reminders in your account so you don’t forget important birthdays or anniversaries, which is perfect for me because I am the absolute worst.
You can even send cards overseas and to APO/FPO addresses! Moonpig.com was launched in the UK, and they have an Australian branch, so they’re not just available in the United States. You can actually buy a card here in the US, enter the UK address, and it will be printed and mailed in the UK for much faster delivery than had it come from the States.
I can definitely see myself using Moonpig.com for a lot of my greeting card needs.
