I'm just going to say it. I hate shopping for greeting cards. I spend so much time standing in the greeting card section picking up a card and putting it back. Picking another, putting it back. I repeat this process about a million times because I can never find a card that says exactly what I am looking for. In the end, I usually just settle on a card I feel is mediocre just to get on with my life.
I've heard of personalized photo cards before, but I've never given them much though because I always thought they would take too long to put together or would be really expensive. Boy, was I wrong! I was recently using the CVS/pharmacy photo website getting some of my photos printed, and decided to browse the Mother's Day greeting card section while I was there. My mom is one who does not like for her children to spend a lot of money on her for Mother's Day, but she's a sucker for anything personalized, so I thought I'd splurge a little and create a personalized Mother's Day card for her this year.
Splurge may not be a good word, because I quickly realized that most of the cards fell in the $2.99 range, which was such a bargain, I ended up designing 3 cards!
My thoughts of card design being time consuming were completely unfounded. With just a few clicks, my cards were complete in under 5 minutes each. The hardest part was picking a favorite design from the many options available on the CVS/pharmacy photo site. Simply pick the design of your choice, upload your photo, type in your text, preview your creation, then VOILA! All done!
I had the girls design one for me, then we created one for both grandmas. There are several different layouts for inside each card. You can choose to simply add a text message, or you can also add more photos to the inside of the cards for even more personalization.
The designs we chose:

The cards come in a flat sheet with a perforated line down the center that you'll fold yourself. Do keep in mind that the cards did not come with an envelope, so you will have to use one of your own. With same day pickup, you don't have to worry about not receiving your cards in time for Mother's Day. Best of all, no more standing in the card aisle looking for that perfect card. Simply create exactly what you want with just a few clicks!
If your mom is anything like mine (or me for that matter!) she is going to love receiving a personalized photo card from CVS this Mother's Day! It's something she will proudly display for all to see. Head over to CVS.com/photo to start designing your cards today!
