Pleased to Report




Within a week of ordering my first RedBubble cards, they have arrived and I'm delighted with the quality.
Both the 6"x4" cards and the very generous 5"x7.5" cards are printed on 300gsm card with a satin finish.
The inside of each card has a beautiful smooth matt surface, wonderful for writing on.




The quality of the printing is excellent. A few weeks ago I ordered some 5"x7"photo-cards from a large Australia-wide electrical/furniture retailer. With this retailer I had to order a batch of 20 of the same photo card to make the cost reasonable. The print quality and card finish of the RedBubble cards is far superior. I can highly recommend RedBubble whether you are thinking of uploading and ordering some of your own photo cards (you can list your photos as "private" and no one else can see them), purchasing those of others or a mix of both as I did.




For those who are curious (like me) this is what the back of a RedBubble card looks like - your photo title, your chosen name, and the address to your RedBubble profile page.





I can see I'll be ordering some more to use and give as gifts.

Its always nice to have your pictures as a real print and not hampered by the electronic gods of your computer. They certainly look great.

I can see I'm going to have to take the next step and choose some of my photos and get them ready to post on my own RedBubble page.

I'm so excited for you! Your images are so beautiful. I'm glad they turned out so well when printed.

Itz always a pleasure to send and receive 'real' cards. I still cherish the cards that I'd received years ago:)

Seeing Each Day said...

I'm so pleased you're happy with the results - I had a mini look at the site but must go back and have a proper look. Do you know if you can make calendars with your photos?

Jodene Shaw said...

I am glad they have turned out so well, as I had recommended them to another blogger as a way of getting some postcards of her photos!

Kateri said...

Susan said...

Beautiful cards and great to know you highly recommend them. I am definitely going to look into these as I have been wanting to sell some art/cards for a while now. I have an etsy shop but haven't started anything yet.

What a clever idea! :) Thanks for sharing!

they look great! I have already printed some of my own for Easter, but in different format, I wasn't 100% pleased with it, but it didn't look that bad though.. next time I do it differently..

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Oh they look so beautiful!! It is always nice to get something in your hands and really see the quality! :)

Jennifer said...

Your cards came out so beautifully. I agree that they would make nice gifts.

Tito Eric said...

What wonderful images on such finely made cards.

Indeed, a great idea but I've lost my script-writing skills to go with those cards ever since I've started working with typewriters and then computers. If given a choice, I would've seriously studied script writing, especially with fine fountain pens.

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

I agree with you on the quality and finish and some of my local purchasers have even commented on how well things are packaged when they buy bigger canvas ones when they get shipped to the UK.

I love the backs of mine too and they are wonderful for presents. Thanks for the reminder that I need to upload more to my own shop!

Aiketa said...

Really nice cards!

Liz said...

What a beautiful cards, Karen.

I have had a few friends suggest I sell some of my images as greeting cards or prints to earn some extra money and my first thought was RedBubble. I haven't checked it out yet but I hope thats a possibility? Do you know if it is?

I will definitely be using it to create my own cards though as I'd rather give the gift of one of my images to make the cards more special.

That little mushroom is cute.

ladyfi said...

Lovely cards!

The calendars are very good quality too from Red Bubble.

Tess @ Pro-tography 101 said...

SO PRETTY!

Kala said...

I have ordered greeting cards from Red Bubble before and the quality is just excellent!

Brenda @ It's A Beautiful Life said...

Ohhhhhhh... how delightful. And to learn of this RedBubble site from you (as I've been thinking of how I'd like to take some of my own photos and create some notecards.

So... thank you for the tip... and especially for sharing the gift of your beautiful pieces with us.


Truly a piece of sunshine in my world today!

Cathy said...
