**CLOSED** Giveaway #4 - Paper Culture

If you’re new around here, have you checked out giveaways 1, 2 and 3 for my blogiversary? Take a peek, you can still enter!

So you’ve heard about Paper Culture here, here and here. But let me give you a refresher on why this modern eco stationery company impressed me time after time. Do check out their holiday cards/invitations,
modern baby announcements, baby shower invitations, birthday party/other invitations, thank you cards and stationary.
  1. Customize. It was a breeze to customize the colors (background, font, images) of my invitation to go from their Holiday Party red to my Winter One-derland lilac. After one request, the proof came back looking exactly like I wanted.
  2. Fast. Turnaround time was quick. After requesting edits, the proof came back shortly thereafter. After placing my order, it was shipped two days later.
  3. Mailed without ever going to the post office (for free + cost of stamp). You can enter all your addresses and Paper Culture ships your cards for you. No buying stamps, licking envelopes or waiting in line at the post office.
  4. Individual Personal Messages (for free). I entered one general message to print on the back of all my invites. But in addition to that, I easily personalized each and every message that got mailed out.
  5. Repeatedly surprising me. I received a $15 credit for filling out a quick survey. Then out of nowhere, my shipping was upgraded for free and would arrive a few days sooner. Then after I received my pretty little box of cards, there was a 20% off coupon for a future purchase. It was like bringing a sale item up to the register to find out it was discounted even more – pleasant surprise and score!
  6. Heavy cardstock. Don’t you just love the feel of solid quality paper? Haha ok probably not everyone notices these things. But I sure do! And rounded corners add a nice touch too! Here’s how they compare themselves to typical competitors like Tiny Prints and Shutterfly.
  7. Ecofriendly. They plant a tree with every order!
I definitely appreciate good customer service and attention to detail which sometimes is hard to come by these days. As you can see, I had a very positive experience with Paper Culture for Mia’s Winter One-derland birthday party last year. And even better when I won their contest for free passes to BlogHer J They did not compensate me for this post. They did not provide me with any free products. They are not my sponsor (I don’t have any). I loved them before the free conference passes.

Have I sold you on it yet? I hope so, because they have a $50 gift voucher for one of you! Here’s how you can enter to win: {If your account isn't linked to your email, make sure you leave it in a comment!}

Congrats on the blogiversary! Hoping the upcoming year brings many fun things for you! This is a great giveaway from an adorable company! I'd use the cards for thank you cards for the many people who have helped with my daughters medical expenses over the past couple years - too many adorable designs to choose from!
