Amy Adele ~ Flat Card Review

Amy Adele offers a large selection of stationery, invitations and gifts using whimsical designs and personalization options. They pride themselves in their high quality paper products, fabulous customer service, and their care for the environment.
I was given the opportunity to select a 24 Flat Cards from their Flat Card Stationery category which currently has 173 designs to choose from. I don't have any parties or occasions coming up where some designs would be appropriate (boy, I sound boring!!), but I was excited to see a few choices available for recipe cards. I received the Blonde Baker Recipe Card. It's a bit funny, because I'm actually a Brunette. I should have chosen the Brunette Baker Recipe Card, but that's my fault. :)
One of the first things I noticed when I received these was the high quality.
The printing is sharp, and very well done. I especially love the cartoon cook on the side! Each 5" x 3.5" one-sided card is printed on paper made of 100% Post Consumer Recycled Fiber (just like all Amy Adele paper products), can be personalized with your own text and includes an envelope. The cards are noticeably thick, are a bright white color and the envelopes are also very thick. They're so thick that there's no chance you'll be able to try and look through and read what's written on the card inside. That's quite the pet peeve of mine when I buy stationery so I appreciate the quality of Amy Adele products very much.

Flat Cards are great for a variety of occasions. There are designs with various themes and subjects that are perfect for invitations, announcements, thank you notes, just just to say "hi" to and old friend. They're also just fun! Since my recipe cards came with envelopes, it's really easy to send off a favorite recipe to someone and include a little note on the back or something. I need to get my recipes organized, so I'm hoping once I get a good chunk of free time I'll be able to sit down and transferring my recipes onto these fun little flat cards!

Price: Each Flat Card style varies in price, and by how many you purchase. The more you buy, the cheaper price per unit. The Blonde Baker Recipe Cards start at $1.39 per card, and can go as low as .79 each if you buy 64 or more.
The Verdict: I really enjoyed the high quality, and distinct, recognizable style of Amy Adele Designs. I feel they are a bit pricey (especially if you're not buying a ton), but I appreciate that they are printed on recycled material and are thick compared to lots of competitor's stationery. For those reasons, I would recommend Amy Adele for the next time you need
customized note cards.

Thanks for your review. Sometimes you get what you pay for. So if these are high quality that will last for a long time - which is what you want for a recipe card- I'm willing to spend a little more.

I really like their products. I reviewed their kids'party invitations. They are super cute and well made.

They have sales pretty regularly, too, and you can get I think a 25% off code by signing up for their newsletter which can add up to make it not so pricey...
