Pear Tree Greetings {Review & Giveaway} High Quality Personalized Note Cards

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

In case you hadn't noticed, we have a thing about getting the mail around here. Don't get me wrong, I love how far technology has come in that it makes it possible to send a message instantaneously to someone on the other side of the world by just pressing a button.

But there's just something about getting an actual piece of mail and some occasions when I think pulling out a pen and paper really are necessary. Holiday cards, thank you cards, birth announcements... just to name a few.

And then there's just sending a note. How much would it brighten the day of someone you know if they went to their mailbox and found a cheery, colorful note telling them that someone cared and was thinking about them?

That's where Pear Tree Greetings comes in.

Pear Tree Greetings is a fun, fresh and affordable personalized stationery company that offers birth announcements, moving announcements, photo cards, invitations and so much more. With over 50 years of experience in the printing industry, the combination of their beautiful designs and high quality paper has made Pear Tree Greetings an easy favorite when it comes to stationary.

In terms of hand-written notes, Pear Tree Greetings knows how special they can be. If one means a great deal to the recipient, they will be likely to save it, wanting to pull it out every now and again to bring a smile whenever it is needed. And even though it is the heartfelt words that are really touching, the colors and design of the card itself can be almost as cheerful.

Not only does Pear Tree Greetings offer bright and vivid styles, their Personalized Note Cards can be customized just for you. How surprised will my friends and family be when they receive a note from me on one of these?

As soon as I opened the Changing Hues in Blue note cards, I was impressed. They are thick and strong, printed on 100 lb card stock 100% post-consumer recycled paper with just the right amount of room to write a short message (they measure 4 5/8" x 6 1/4"). The design is such a great modern twist on traditional damask and the fact that they include a single X for my name can only be described as just plain cool. I love the way the colors change and complement one another and the whole look is clean and finished while still being unique and stylish.

Do you have a friend going through a rough time in a relationship who could use a card to let her know you're there for her? How about sending one just out of the blue to your mom to tell her how much she means to you? Not only does a hand-written, personalized note card mean a great deal to the recipient, you get the added bonus of feeling pretty good about yourself when you drop it in the mail as well.

And, as all of the modern, colorful designs from Pear Tree Greetings are easily customized online with your favorite photos, fonts, colors and messages (depending on what item you order, of course), you know that you will not only be making someone's day, but will be doing it in an extremely high quality way that you can be proud to send out. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get to bring some sunshine to the people in their life, because...

One lucky person will win a set of Personalized Note Cards (up to 16 cards) from Pear Tree Greeting's new collection! ARV $18.99!

Great giveaway! I've received a lot of sweet notes, but my favorite was from a friend who was getting married. She thanked me for all of my help and being a good friend to her. It meant a lot. My friend who just gave birth could use a "Thinking of You" kind of note :)
