Paper Shouts review and giveaway!


Thanks once again to my girls from Extraordinary Mothers for hooking me up on this great review and giveaway. If you haven't checked Extraordinary Mothers out yet, it is time you do so. You will meet so many other great bloggers, find tons of giveaways and find some fun and useful information regarding blogging, parenting, etc.

Recently I got to visit Paper Shouts site and pick out any item I wanted to review. There was so much to choose from and all were great options. I first want to give Paper Shouts five stars for their easy navigation. Their site is made so well, and they make it extremely easy for you to find what your looking for. Everything is categorized by events, stationery's etc. If you do happen find what you were looking for under another category other then what you were looking for, their items can be changed by selecting their personalized button.

I chose to get the "Green and Chocolate border" Note Cards for the review. Although you can personalize them by adding your name on the top, I decided I wanted to use them as Thank You cards. It seems I am always running out of thank you cards and when I go to buy new ones they are either to cheesy or to girly. I thought these would have the perfect touch of style, yet could be given to either a women or a man. As Paper Shouts promised, these cards were printed on a high quality and heavyweight matte finish paper. They were made very well and included all the envelopes. I REALLY APPRECIATED the fact that with the cards I ordered, Paper Shouts informed me that the card I was looking at would need additional postage when I sent them to people. (You can find this information bolded off to the right side under "Please Note"). I don't know about you, but this is always something I wish I knew before purchasing cards. Especially if I am going to be sending a lot out at once.



Overall my experience with their site and information was excellent. My experience with their products was just as great. Next time you need announcements or invites made go check out Paper Shouts.



Giveaway: Paper Shouts is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one winner.
