PaperShaker - Review

I entered a competition to win a £50 PaperShaker voucher.  PaperShaker is a website that allows you to create your own baby, wedding or christmas cards.  They are the same company as Photobox and Moonpig so you know you are going to get a quality product.  

There are many designs to choose from, it took us a while to pick the one we liked as there were so many.  Once you pick your design you can personalise it with your own photo and wording.  We bought 30 Thank You cards and 10 Announcement cards. 

Although no-one would be sent one of each we decided to have the same design for both cards. 

When you add the photo you are given the option to edit it such as improving the sharpness and making the photo HD.  There is already a name and date of birth on the card, which is great when you are looking at designs but I would have preferred these were removed for editing as I had to check a number of times that our information was on the card. 

The website is easy to use and our cards arrived 3 days after we ordered them, which was great saying that this was over the festive period! The cards arrive in their own holder to keep them safe and you get free envelopes with the cards, although if you want coloured envelopes you have to pay a little extra.  We went with the free ones as at the end of the day people are just going to bin them.

I would definitely recommend this website, it was easy to use and excellent delivery.  We might even use it next Christmas for family to send personalised Christmas cards.

Disclaimer: I won this voucher through a competition, the company running the competition were not aware I had a blog and I did not offer a review in exchange of winning the competition.  My views are my own
