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!

To enter to win: Pear Tree Greetings would like to hear about a note card you received in the past that meant a lot to you OR who you think really could benefit from receiving a note card today and why.

I received an amazing note from a young lady in the youth group I helped with. I was moving out of state and she gave me a wonderful goodbye/thank you note.

I remember being a kid and my grandfather would send us "just because" birthday cards with $20 in them. It was just nice to have a special surprise and it wasn't the money as much as the card where he wouldn't just sign but would actually write meaningful notes for us.

My uncle could really use a special note right now. My grandfather was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and it has been especially hard on him because he's the youngest of the children and his own children are very young and he's struggling with the fact that they will never really know their grandfather. So I would send him a note letting him know that I'm thinking of him and supporting him.

When I was recently in the hospital for a month my husband's aunt and grandmother both sent me handwritten notes of encouragement. Being a 20something I'm used to texting and emails but getting a handwritten note was so special. You can just see how much time and love goes into writing and sending it. It meant so much to me.
