If you want to announce the birth of your baby or your upcoming wedding or graduation, Storkie has many photo card designs from which to choose. This service offers several standout features, including delivery service, customization tools, envelope options and more. While Storkie offers stunning card designs, many of the designs don't allow you to add your own photos.

This custom photo card service provides many convenient features for card creation and mailing. If you upload a photo with low resolution, the editor warns you. This helps you avoid creating cards that won't translate well to print. Envelopes are included in your orders, and you can even pre-order envelopes so that addresses are ready to go when your cards arrive. If you prefer, you can choose to have Storkie deliver your cards for you.

There is a minimum order quantity of 10 cards for most invitations and announcements, but some cards have a minimum order requirement of 20 cards. There isn’t a large-quantity discount for most holiday photo cards we created using Storkie. With some competing photo card makers, when you place a large order, the price per card goes down.

There are a handful of customization tools available for each of the holiday photo cards you design with this service. You can choose from a selection of card stock. With many cards, you can also choose whether you want the corners to be square or round, along with customizing the background color and envelope.

The Storkie card designs are gorgeous, but we could not always find photo cards in every category. Still, Storkie has a wide variety of cards with prints and designs, but it's disappointing there isn't an abundant selection of photo cards specifically. You do have to work harder to find photo cards with this service than you would with the best online photo card services we reviewed.

If you have any questions or problems during the designing or ordering process, Storkie offers excellent assistance. It provides friendly and knowledgeable staff for live chat, telephone and email support, along with detailed FAQs.

Storkie offers some beautiful designs, although many of them don't incorporate your photos. There are valuable customization tools available with this service, including the ability to choose the type of corners your cards have and the option to receive your envelopes in advance.
