I love getting cards in the mail. When I see an envelope addressed to me (and that it’s not a bill or donation request), I get really excited. In this day and age of quick results and instant gratification, there’s something touching about someone taking the time to pick out a card, write a thoughtful note and send it in the mail. Even if it’s just a perfunctory thank you card, I still appreciate it. It’s a simple way to make someone’s day (mine, at least).
Rosh Hashanah is fast approaching (sorry to all of you who would like to stay in denial), and in addition to doing teshuvah, giving tzedekah, and asking forgiveness, some of us also like to send Rosh Hashanah cards out to friends and family. Some of us (cough cough me) are not that organized. But I LOVE the idea of it.
That’s why, when Greeting Card Universe contacted me about doing a review of their cards, I was intrigued. I went to their site and checked out their selection, which is really astounding. They have 177 Rosh Hashanah cards, ranging from traditional to cute to contemporary. I ordered my cards on Wednesday and received them Friday.
The cards are beautiful, and great quality. Some are matte, others glossy. When ordering them on their website, you can choose to customize the message and have the card shipped directly to who you want (which is great if you have a tendency to procrastinate). The cards come with envelopes at no additional charge. The customer service has been fantastic as well.
Pricing is comparable to what you would see in a regular store. All the cards I ordered were priced at $3.00. A bonus of ordering at Greeting Card Universe is the specials. For instance, over the Labor Day weekend, all the cards were selling for $1.99. Right now, through September 18th, you can get free shipping if you order 5 cards or more by using the code: GCUSHIP5.
Here are the cards in more detail. I’ve included the inside text in the captions.

Greeting Card Universe sent me five free cards, but beyond that, I didn’t receive any compensation for running this giveaway. My opinions about greetings cards and their niceness are entirely mine.
