It's just before Thanksgiving, and I love seeing all the gratitude and positive vibes floating throughout the interwebs. Have you heard of Treat? I hadn't until this weekend, but I love it. Treat is a website where you can personalize cards easily and quickly, with or without photos, for just about any occasion.
You can change the font, size, and text anywhere there is writing, something few website allow you to do. There are cards available for thank yous to anniversaries to congratulations to birthdays and more. Creating the cards takes under five minutes, and they turn out beautifully.
If you create an account, all photos you upload will be saved indefinitely, with no limit on the number of photos. And you can purchase a "Treat Card Club" for discounted cards - as low as $1.99 apiece, personalized. It took me a bit, but I finally realized that purchasing the Treat Card Club means that I'm just committing to buying and making that many cards over the course of a year, not that there would be 18 identical cards.
And yes, you can mail directly to the recipient for $0.45 postage so if you're late on that message you want to get out, no worries. My favorite part? You can also include a code for a gift card so that your recipient can choose where to spend the card from amongst a number of merchants - or the recipient can choose to donate the gift card amount to one of a number of charities. I think I know what we're doing for all our relatives' birthdays now.
A feature I know my mom would love because she's organized like that? You can schedule when your card will be delivered. When finishing your card, you have the option to either have it arrive as soon as possible or select a date from the next mailing date to a year out from the current date. I no longer have an excuse for forgetting to send anyone a card.
But since it's Thanksgiving right now, Treat (which used to be Tiny Prints by the way) is offering one free card today and tomorrow Tuesday, November 20. Simply put in the code TREATBLOGR (you have to create an account to use the code), and your $3.49 card is now free.
So who will you send your card to? I created a card for Mister Man's third grade teacher who is just beyond awesome. She really gets him and is so patient with him that she deserves something special. When it arrives later this week, I know she'll get a kick out of it - and so will I for having sent it.
So quick. Go create your free personalized card today before this promotion is over. TREATBLOGR for a free Treat card!
