Mid-Week Mini: Sadler Jones Greetings Cards Review.

I find buying greetings cards hard. Most of the time the paper is average, the designs ok and the prices high. I tend to buy cards when I see them so that I have a small supply at home that I can dip into when I need it.

I came across Sadler Jones through Instagram, I forget exactly how, but I was attracted to the style of these cards. I have now bought two bulk orders over the past few months because the style and designs of their cards are so good. I wanted to share my thoughts and some photographs in todays post.

High Quality Paper.

I like to use fountain pens when I write my cards. Pen and ink looks nice and feels special, especially if the receiver is not a fountain pen user. However not all cards are fountain pen friendly, but Sadler Jones cards work perfectly. The paper is high quality stock that means you can use a lot of different writing tools. The envelopes seem to be pretty standard, white in general and yellow for Children’s cards.

Fun designs.

Sadler Jones has a few different card themes on their site. Some of them are bold and bright, some have beautiful brush lettering and there are also some of the more cheeky kind (my personal favourites).

Overall thoughts.

As I said at the start of todays post it’s tough to find high quality cards that tick the design box and are made with decent paper stock. Sadler Jones however are great and I’ve really liked the cards I’ve used. The prices are pretty standard and delivery is really quick. I wanted to share my experiences with Sadler Jones mainly because I have found it so hard to find good quality cards online that are recommended, so I felt compelled to share my experiences. I hope you find this useful.
