Angelface Prints: Review and $50 Giveaway

Open to Canada and U.S.

I was thrilled when I recently had the opportunity to review products from the Canadian business Angelface Prints. They specialize in customized announcements (holiday, thank you, invitation, etc.), like the adorable twins' birth announcement below.




Why order through Angelface, and not just use the supermarket kiosk like everyone else? Well, for one, you don't have to line up at a kiosk, and secondly, because you don't want your greetings to look like everyone else's! The best thing about these cards (besides the reasonable rates) is that they can be custom-designed, like card they made me for Canada Day.

I was excited to order a sample product, but didn't want to wait for the next traditional card-sending holiday...and there are certainly no birth announcements in my family's (near) future! I asked business owner Christie if she could design a little something I could send out for Canada Day, in order to review the cards. Aren't Frannie and Maggie cute little Canadian girls? (We won't talk about the effort involved to take these shots. I'll save that for another post!)



To order your greetings, you simply contact Angelface to let them know what sort of design you're looking for (one you found on the site, or something you'd like custom designed for no extra charge). Then you attach your photo(s), and wait to receive your proof through email. The photo part couldn't be easier - they actually prefer if you don't crop, remove red-eye, or switch to black and white. Just send your raw images, and they do the rest! Once you have approved your order, you make your payment and wait for your cards and envelopes to come in the mail.

Angelface Prints is also branching out into art work - I received an adorable 'M is for Maggie'...well, not really, since that's her pseudonym, but you get the idea. It's actually quite nice to get a personalized piece for her, as her real name is quite uncommon and won't be found on the usual name merchandise available in stores.



Here's your chance to go shopping at Angelface Prints yourself!

Up for grabs is a $50 gift certificate, to be used towards any products you wish! Have a special occasion coming up? The invitations or announcements can be looked after! Interested in the initial art? This amount could buy the names of three different children...wouldn't that look cute lined up on a playroom wall?

Entering is simple! Just visit Angelface Prints, and come back and leave me a comment about a product you like. Make sure to leave your email address in your comment, if it's not linked to your profile. If I cannot contact you, you will be disqualified.

For additional entries, leave a separate comment letting me know that:

  • you are a This Mom Loves email subscriber
  • you follow This Mom Loves publicly through Google Friend Connect
  • you follow @thismomloves on Twitter, and tweet about this giveaway
  • you 'like' Angelface Prints on Facebook
  • you've added Angelface Prints' button (found in their left sidebar) to your blog (include your link) for 2 extra entries (leave two comments)
Good luck! This contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada and ends on Sunday, July 11th at midnight, after which time a winner will be chosen through random number generation.

While you're here, don't forget to enter to win a $25 gift certificate to Bugalug Baby (ends July 6th) as well!

Disclaimer: I was provided with a sample of a personalized name and some announcement cards for the purpose of this review. Opinions are, as always, my own.

I love the idea of personalized photo cards for any occasion and thought the Peace on Earth Christmas card was very nice too! I really like how they offer templates to choose from or that they will work with you to design your own!

I am a mom and a teacher. The Angel Face notes I liked the best were the Thank You cards. I can always use those - but had a great idea while I was looking at them. Take a class picture - then at the end of year when sending Happy Summer thank you for the gift notes you could have the class picture on it - maybe out by the climber - maybe one of when the class was doing something really neat. What student wouldn't want to keep that one - a real memory card!!
