Fast Father’s Day Card Options

by Lain Ehmann on June 6, 2011

I know, I know – I’m all about the handmade, but sometimes (especially this time of year!) you just run out of time. And seriously, my husband wouldn’t notice the difference between a handmade card that took me three hours to create, and one I picked up at 7-11 on my morning run. He just ain’t that particular.

I did do well on the present front. I think we’re all set: A car detailing from me, Superman boxers from Callie, a Sudoku book from Ben, and a happy face dish scrubber from Kinsey (he’s in charge of getting the dishes IN the dishwasher; Kinsey gets them out). Now if I can just remember where everything IS! ;) 

So if you are in the “better get this done right now” boat, here are a few options for Father’s Day cards that will allow you to cross one more item off your ever-long to-do list: 

Tiny Prints. Tiny Prints offers the best of both worlds — a customizable Father’s Day card that says “Yes, I did something besides plop my debit card on the counter at the Hallmark Store” but also doesn’t require hours to put together. AND if you order by end-of-day 6/6, you can use code GC99 to get a card for as low as $.99!!! Wow! Totally doing this for my daddy in California (another man who wouldn’t notice if I sent him a used napkin or a hand-crafted gem). If you’ve ordered from them before, you know their quality is unsurpassed. Good stuff, that Tiny Prints


Cardstore.com

Cardstore. Cardstore also offers cards you can personalize. AND they’re running a special right now where if you order a Father’s Day card, they’ll give you the stamps for you to mail it to him for free! Stamps aren’t cheap these days, so use code SENDDAD at checkout. I think that’s a cute little promo, but if you’d rather have a FREE card, you can do that too: Just use code FREECARD at checkout for a free card AND free shipping!

Now, I’m off to go shopping.

P.S. If you’ve got more than one “dad” in your life — as I do — why not take advantage of BOTH of these promotions? I’m gonna send one to my dad in CA and one to hubby here at home. :)
