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.
To enter this giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment below with which card of the five displayed in this post you would like, and a reason why.

If these cards are not your style, by all means, go and visit Greeting Card Universe and check out their wide array of choices. With all those cards to pick from, I imagine that anyone would be able to find an appealing card.
Also, if you’re the type to send out cards with a picture of your family, then you should definitely check out the deal over at Kosher on a Budget.
This giveaway is open to all my readers over 18 years old in the USA, begins today, and will close on Sunday, September 18th, at noon, EST. Maximum three entries per person. The five winners will be selected randomly, and will be announced on Sunday, September 18th, in the evening. I will contact each winner via email to obtain a shipping address.
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.

May this be a sweet and fruitfull newyear, the one w/ the tree…..thats the one i like best, because its pretty and can be given to any of my friends or family regardless there level of frumkit ;)
I love that first card with the tree on it. It’s the perfect symbol of fall. I was just realizing this weekend I need to get busy with my Rosh Hashanah cards. Thanks for the reminder! Hard to believe it’s not too far away.
I like the gray card with the pomegranates at the top; I just do. I love pomegranates.
I already like your fb page and am subscribed by email. Hope you get a lot of entries, and I will pass it along!
Oh okay–I like the fourth one then, because of the bee. I love those bees!
My fav is the grey L’shana Tova card with the pomegranates – why? I’m a sucker for pomegranates! I wish we could see more designs incorporating them in the USA…I’d actually love to get some fabric with pomegranates…hmm.. maybe I’ll make Eliana a skirt with some cute pomegranate fabric for Rosh Hashana…now I’m off to do some online shopping!
I’m a subscriber!
And I like your FB page… L’Shana Tova ~ we sure do miss you around here!
I like the third one (brown with tree), but I would like it soooo much more if it came with a personalized message from a friend. ;-)
I would want to say the one with the bees, because after all we do have a Devorah :) but honestly, I like the one with the pomegranates the best!
And Rivki – isn’t this a bit commercial for you? Cute idea though…
I love the last one. It’s bright and cheerful and can be sent to all religious levels since it’s in English.
i like the first one. those are great colors.
The image of the tree with the pomegranates is lovely! I think the symbolism of pomegrantes is terrific!
I like the one with the bee – very cute!
I also like your FB page!

I like the grey one with the pomegranates on top. Love the color combo.
I love the first one with the tree. I love the simplicity of it and the colors are a reminder of RH.
I love the 2nd one! so simplistic and beautiful. you get the wishes in a clean and clear way! I would love to get that in the mail myself!
