A Special Mother’s Day Card Greeting, For My Awesome Mom Friends

Mother’s Day is coming up soon, May 12th, to be exact. Have you thought about what you are going to get your mom? Or what kind of gift that you want?

I can never think of the “perfect” gift for my mom, or what I even want. Because believe me, my husband has always asked and I’m stumped.

But I do know one thing for sure…I hate looking for Mother’s Day greeting cards. I feel like you always have to get some kind of card. I can never find the perfect card that captures our relationship. And usually, when I start looking for a card, the selection is sparse.

I was recently introduced to the online site, Cardstore. Cardstore allows users to create custom cards by adding personal photos, personalized messaging and your signature for a personal touch.  Cardstore can also print, stamp and send your card via US postal service for you.

CardStore.com Sample Card I created.

I went online to check out CardStore, and see what they offered. I decided to make a card to celebrate my “awesome mom friends”. I have some pretty awesome friends whom have children like me who work full-time, own their own business, run, do CrossFit, have handicapped children, sew, craft, volunteer, and pretty much seem to do it all!

I think this card pretty much describes many if not all of my friends who have children. I loved the selection of cards that you can choose from, plus the ability to personalize the cards. You can even add in your own pictures. And the best part, you can have the card mailed to you, or you can have it mailed directly to the recipient. I chose to have this particular card sent to a friend, and selected to have it delivered right before Mother’s Day. The entire process was super easy, and it only took me a few minutes to create a fantastic and personalized card.

I use SendOutCards. Very similiar idea. I love creating heartfelt personalized cards that touch my friends and relatives with a heartfelt message. I also use it to send to clients and prospects and it has grown my business through referrals. Both are great products.


Love Cardstore!! used them for our Christmas cards & I paid less than the cost of a stamp for the card AND for them to be addressed & mailed out for us. Definitely using them again this year!
