Looking for some cool thankyou cards? Here you go! - by Mum1stdoctor2nd

Posted by Mum1stdoctor2nd on 18 September 2014 at 00:20

I never did baby announcement cards or personalised photo cards when Doof was born but I am semi-addicted to photobox so when I saw they also owned a new site called "Paper Shaker" I thought I'd try them out.

They make all sorts of photo cards - announcements, invitations, thank you's - you name it, they can make it for you :)


There are literally hundreds of designs you can choose from and you can individually personalise each one (something I didn't realise to start with!). So not only can you choose the number of photos you upload to each card, but you can also change the size and shape of each :)

You can personalise with photos (obviously!) but also the text you include. We included Iz's name, weight and date of birth on the inside, as well as "Thank you" on the outside. There is space in all the cards for you to type a message but as this would be generic across all 10 cards printed I elected to leave it blank so I could write a more personal thank you inside to everyone. On the back of the card there is also space for you to write something - they had supplied a quote which I liked so we just kept that!

The cards are nice and thick and the print definition is excellent. The overall quality was much better than I envisioned.


This is where Papershaker surpassed themselves - I ordered at 2:30pm and the cards arrived at midday the next day!! That was just a regular order with no priority shipping etc at all. Very impressive! And also meant I had no excuse to not write our thank you's straight away... ;)

Overall I was really impressed at how easy it was to personalise your cards, how many options there were and at the amazingly quick delivery time.

If you want to see how easy it is then have a play on their website here:

I did not receive any free products or payment for this review. I just saw the cards and liked them so have reviewed them here.
