I am not usually one for sending Christmas cards – I start with good intentions by buying them then they sit on my kitchen worktop unwritten until the very last minute and then of course it is too late to post them.
Every year I try to organise myself but with just SO much to do over the festive period writing and sending cards just never reaches the top of my to-do-list.
This year I have been working alongside Choosey to try out their service, which means that at east some people have received cards from me this year – apologises to the rest of you – see above for my reason, once again they are on the worktop.
Choosey is an online card ordering site where you can send Christmas cards, Birthday cards, Get Well cards and many more. Not only can you send cards and include your on messages but you can also include a video for the receiver to watch using their smart phones, tablet or computers.
To start with you can choose the card you would like to send, then you can choose whether you would like to add a video. You can add a Choosey video or to add your own video – adding your own is really easy. I recorded mine on my smart phone and then uploaded to my computer, you then add this to your Choosey account. To make sure your video is included you need to click the circle under the video.
Lastly, you add a personalised message to the inside. You can change the fonts, text colour and test alignment to whatever you would like.
You then can either send to yourself along with a spare envelope or directly to the recipient.
Of course you can’t actually send an actual video inside a card but a QR Code is made up which is then scanned using your phone, tablet or computers camera and the video is then viewable from there.
Our cards were very warmly received and the kids loved watching their videos come alive on the screen.
Choosey card prices start from £2.99 and cost an extra £1 to include a video, you then pay postage on top of this price.
I found this site very easy to use and navigate and adding videos was painless and quick. These videos are also saved to your account so there’s no need to keep reading every time. There is a good choice of cards available and there is the option for same day dispatch which is always handy if you are like me and forget occasions all the time.
Choosey have kindly offered one of my lucky readers the chance to enter to win £40 credit so they can send their own cards – Why not send some Thank You cards after Christmas? Or of course you can use for Birthday’s, Anniversary cards etc.
