RedBubble Cards

Very impressive.

Let me start off by saying that I’m probably one of the pickiest people on the planet. I’m not easy to satisfy and even more difficult to actually please. I have a reputation as a whiner and a complainer.

But I like to think of myself as a perfectionist. I want things to be perfect — or as close to it as possible. (That’s my story and I’ll stick to it.)

RedBubbleThat said, I just received my first batch of cards from RedBubble. I placed the order about two weeks ago and they arrived in yesterday’s mail from Australia.

And they are beautiful.

Grand Canyon with CloudsThe artwork I chose — photos taken by me and several other RedBubble photographers — was perfectly reproduced on high-quality heavy stock paper. The matte coating applied gave each photo a nice protective finish. The back of each card included a thumbnail view of the image, along with the photographer’s name and the URL of his/her RedBubble portfolio.

These are, by far, the best quality photo greeting cards I have every seen. I am pleased beyond measure. I am, in fact, tickled pink.

Best of all, some of the cards have my own photos on them, so I can show off my work to the people I write to. (Hey, why the hell not?)

If you haven’t checked out RedBubble, you should. Not only is it a great resource for printing your own artwork as cards and wall art and t-shirts, but it’s a great place to shop for high quality art by extremely talented artists.

  1. I am going to take a closer look at RedBubble.

    My own recommendation is still Moo, but the range of products doesn’t extend to wall art and t-shirts.

    We should swap cards ;-)

  2. I also ordered some Moo cards. And although the quality of those cards is fine, it’s not nearly as good a product as the RedBubble cards. Not only is the print quality perfect, but the paper is heavy and strong and really substantial. And it’s a complete, folded-over card — not a standup photo thingamabob.

  3. I don’t want anyone to think I’m getting down on the Moo cards. I’m not. The Moo cards are good quality cards and they’re a bit less expensive than RedBubble cards. But the Moo cards are also less formal, designed to be FUN. The RedBubble cards can be used for any kind of correspondence, no matter how casual or formal. So they’re both good options — just different.

What do you think?
