Quality & Services

With this photo card service's wide range of customization tools, you get to make birthday invitations, anniversary cards and birth announcements exactly the way you want. Discounts for large quantities help you get the pricing you need for big events like weddings and showers.

This photo card site stands out from the competition, and the company will do all it can to ensure your cards are of the highest quality and appear exactly how you wish. After you have submitted your order, a design team member reviews your submission to ensure that your photos are clear and crisp and that you have not made any obvious mistakes. Simply to Impress also handles the busywork for you, if you prefer, by addressing envelopes, printing your return address, mailing them and more. Having your return address printed on the back of each envelope also costs a little more, but it may be worth it – particularly for large orders.

In addition, this photo card service offers both digital and paper proofs, which is a great benefit – especially if you plan to order a large quantity. If you receive your proof and are not satisfied, you can alert a graphic designer who can help you get the exact design and look you desire. You can also pre-order envelopes before your cards arrive, giving you plenty of time to address your envelopes and get them ready to send.

There is a variety of paper types to select from. You can choose from photo-style paper with a satin finish, folded premium cardstock and premium cardstock with a glossy, matte or pearlescent finish. There are also a few options for envelopes if you want something more than an ordinary white envelope. You can choose off-white, silver foil-lined or gold foil-lined envelopes. The foil lining costs a bit more and may not be worth it for every order, but it's a nice option if you need a formal touch.

Template Selection

At minimum, the best photo card makers should provide customers with stylish designs. Simply to Impress has lovely designs in every single category, each one fresh and original. There are templates that feature single or multiple picture layouts. In the wedding category alone, we found cards that follow a range of themes. Similarly, birth announcements, party invitations and Christmas cards have just as much themed variety.

Simply Photo Cards is a unique feature that gives you artistic freedom when you create your own photo cards. These custom cards begin with a blank template and allow you to add one or several photos. You can use this design feature to create personalized invites, holiday photo cards, thank you photo cards and more. You can also add text on the front of your cards to give them an even more personalized touch.


We were impressed by how easy it is to customize and create a personalized photo card using this service. After choosing from a large selection of templates, you can personalize the card with the online design tool. In this menu, you can easily upload photos using drag-and-drop capabilities. You can also quickly add text boxes and adjust the font, size, alignment, line spacing, color and other aspects of your text.

A few more search filters would make this service even more convenient, though. Other photo card printing services help you narrow your search by size and price range in addition to photo quantity and orientation.

Help & Support

Simply to Impress offers a total satisfaction guarantee, which is rare. This company’s design team works closely with you until you are completely satisfied with your cards.
