We all know how much you all love it! However, why not help support a local business, a friend and family member....Beware what you are about to read may surprise you!!!!

Expressions By Em Christmas Cards... Beware this may surprise you!

Many people find that ordering their Christmas cards through a site like Shutterfly is more economical. I decided to do a little price comparison on Shutterfly’s product that is most similar to the product I offer. Below is what I found out…Beware! This will surprise you!

Now some of you may be thinking things like “well I have free shipping codes and they are offering me 20% off, etc.” If you are a returning client you automatically receive 10% off plus any specials that we are offering. Expressions by Em then offers you the 10% off returning client deal plus 10 free cards if ordered by a specific date! How’s that for deals?!

Here’s the beauty of using Expressions by Em than an online site. Although convenience is huge, Expressions by Em makes sure that ordering through her is convenient. You still get an electronic proof and you are now able to customize any design that she has or that you have seen you love. Customization is huge with Expressions by Em because she wants your Christmas card to reflect you and your family’s personalities which includes custom greetings, fonts, colors, etc! All the customizations and changes are FREE! You can make as many changes as you want once we start the proofing process!!! You really do nothing when it comes to your cards except send us your list of contacts, pick your designs, decide what changes you want and send us your photos! We do the rest!!!!

Still think it makes more sense to go through Shutterfly?
