How Staples Saved my Christmas Cards
As many of you know, I LOVE partnering with Staples on various projects and campaigns throughout the year. They are – and always will be – my ultimate entrepreneur destination because they keep me stocked up on all my essentials… paper, pens, ink for my printer, notebooks, journals, tech gadgets, etc. I love me some Staples!
*And let me preface this blog post with this disclosure, too… I was NOT compensated to write this blog post, I just genuinely love Staples and wanted to pass along this cool holiday news!*
With my grandmother getting sick right after Thanksgiving and then passing away, getting my holiday cards in order during those 2 weeks was the last thing on my mind. I usually have them done and out by DEC 1st, but this year was just a different kind of year for me. I was going to forgo holiday cards altogether this year with so much going on, but since we did move this summer… I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine a “We’ve MOVED!” with a “Happy Holiday!” greeting!
So…….. I caved.
Early LAST week I decided to just go for it. I had the kids dress up and stand in front of the house, with the snow as a back-drop I thought it was perfect. After taking a round of photos, I came inside and went to Staples.com to create a holiday card. I uploaded the photo I wanted to use with the kids… added some verbiage on the front – and did the same on back. It literally look me 10 minutes to create the card (if that because templates were in place to help out!). I sent my final “look” to Staples for them to print and then opted for the store pick-up option. The cool thing was they said that the cards would be ready by 8PM that night… I did this at 8:15AM that morning! I was thrilled that I would get them that very day, that was awesome to me. I could get them out ASAP!
But the best part?
At 10AM (that DAY) I got an email from Staples saying that my cards were DONE!
DONE. FINISHED. READY FOR PICK-UP.
Can I just repeat… within 2 HOURS… my cards were created and done and ready for PICK-UP!
I still can’t get over this!!
My cards… and the section covered is our address…
And so… if you’re still not sure if you have the time to do a holiday card or a New Year card, YOU DO! Not to mention the prices were phenomenal! I took advantage of a promo they had going on last week and scored 175 cards for just under $100!
And keep Staples in mind for BIRTHDAY INVITES, PARTY INVITES, GRADUATION, BABY SHOWERS, ETC… !!!
Thank you, Staples… you saved my Christmas Cards!
