Zazzle.co.uk is a colourful, eye-catching website that's easy and fun to navigate. You'll find a huge array of printed greeting cards on the site at reasonable prices.
Zazzle.co.uk is another of those sites that doesn't specialise in greeting cards only, but offers them as part of a wider range of products, including clothing, accessories (e.g. bags, hats, keychains, etc.), invitations and cards, homeware (e.g. mugs, aprons, magnets), office equipment (e.g. business cards, stickers, mousepads) and more. The majority of products on sale here can be customised and personalised with your own designs and images. Whilst there's a tremendous variety of products available, for the purposes of this review we will focus more or less exclusively on greeting cards.
On the homepage, you'll find a range of clickable product offers and best-selling merchandise. Near to the top of the screen are a number of tabs linked to the various product ranges (create, clothing, accessories, invitations and cards, home, office, art, electronics, photo, gifts, all). By hovering over one of the tabs you get to see the whole product range within that category. Hovering over 'invitations and cards' brings up a list of card types, including several types of cards (greeting cards, note cards, photo cards) and invitations (wedding invitations, baby shower invitations, save the date cards, etc.). To see the full range of cards you can click on 'all', bringing up thousands of designs. You can browse their card ranges in 2 ways; if you know the specific type of card you want (e.g. a birthday card) you can browse all cards. Alternatively, it's possible to browse by topic (e.g. animals, nature, sports) or by card format (e.g. folded cards, flat cards, premium photo cards). The options can be a little overwhelming, however, if you're looking for a card for an occasion it's easiest to browse this way. If you're keen to create your own card, go via the card format choice.
Predesigned cards are logically ordered. Clicking on birthday cards brings up a range of categories including funny, religious, zodiac cards and more. You'll find hundreds of designs and shouldn't be disappointed no matter what the occasion, which can all be personalised. However, be aware that for some less popular occasions the choice of cards may be more limited. You'll also find thousands of card templates on the site to choose from if you want to design your own card, or if you don't find the card you want. Folded cards are available in 2 sizes, customisable inside and out and printed on glossy paper. Flat cards come in 7 card sizes, a range of 9 premium paper types and can be customised on both sides. Premium photo cards allow you to add your own uploaded images and are printed on high quality glossy card. Finally, postcards can also be customised with your own photos and text and can be applied to both sides.The drag and drop design tool allows you to easily upload your images, add text in hundreds of fonts and colors, add design templates and produce multiple designs in a few easy steps using the quick product create tool (allowing you to create 100 products in the time it takes to create 1). It's a fairly intuitive and swift way of creating your own cards (or other products), although most people are likely to just want to create a single product.
There are no mimimum order quantities with most cards (with the exception of some invitation cards), so you don't have to worry should you only want a single card. However, should you buy 10 cards you get a 17% discount based upon the cost of a single card. Likewise, if you order 20-49 cards you get 40% discount, up to 57% if you order 2000+ copies, so the more you order the more you save. Plus, if you become a seller (selling your own designs through the site) you get an additional 10% off. Most orders are printed within 24 hours of receipt. Should you need any assistance, you'll find a detailed help section on the site, plus email and phone support (Monday-Friday 11.00am-5.00pm EST).
In sum, Zazzle.co.uk gives you a tremendous choice in greeting cards, whether you want to pick a card from their vast selection or upload your own pictures and create your own with their easy to use card editor. You'll find some great prices too, especially if you buy in bulk.
