Better me than them.
With holidays swiftly approaching My God its October! All ready!! I have gotten an early start on my cards. Yay! Because there are other things I really need to get started on but I don't want to - I'm looking at you dog cookies. I do want to play with pictures and online card sites. I made one set all ready and they turned out beautifully and I got a great deal from one of the online card sites.
This made me hopeful and I decided to try again on the card site, I was hoping to get a similar deal but I'm discovering you can only go to the well once, somehow once th3 universe knows you got a great deal once, that's it, its full price for you for the rest of the season. Bother. So I went looking for other sites and did a quick search and found Photo Card Review .
Helpful, helpful, helpful! Just what the doctor ordered! I dove right in. Quality? Choice? Which is the cheapest one? I discovered there is no such thing as cheap when it comes to photo cards.

and not WTF? She thought a fill-in-the-blank was Christmasy? What was she thinking? after plugging my images into approximately 300 cards, I am having my doubts about my um, vision. I see them as being neato and different but others may just think that I am different.
Clearly, this year I thought outside the box. I think its a good direction to go in. I think the direction I'm going to have to go in is the cheaper direction and thus the better direction than what I was going to do in the first place - Corporate! Inside the box! Fill-in-the-blank! and I'll make it more of a hands on DIY project. Ha. The pricey, narrow minded photo sites loss will be Jerry's Art-O-Rama's gain.
