You can use our product personalizer to add text or a photo to the back most of our greeting card designs. Double-sided printing also enables most of our designs to double as postcard designs.
Depending on the design you select, we offer ink or foil printing for your personalization.
Ink color is an important consideration and one we haven't overlooked! Easily match your company logo or company colors with the color-picker in our product personalizer. We have the abililty to match ink colors with hex code, Pantone Matching System
code, or CMYK code. We can print in any ink color on our digital greeting cards. Our converted (non-digitally printed) products have a more limited ink selection.
Some of our high-end greeting cards have foil embellishments. While a little more expensive, these cards are designed to impress your friends, family, co-workers,
and customers. Other designs allow you to add your personalization in the foil color of your choice.
All of our greeting cards–with the exception of postcards–include envelopes.
CardsDirect offers envelope liners with your choice of Gold, Black or Pearl. Not all colors are available with all greeting card designs. The image below is of a white envelope with a silver inner lining.
Printed Return Address
A printed return address adds professionalism to your greeting card. Rather than stamping each envelope, let us print your return address in a color that matches your personalization on your greeting card.
Peel and Seal
These envelopes include a strip of latex adhesive on the envelope’s flap. Remove the protective strip, press your envelope closed and your envelopes are ready to go. These save lots of time which is why we choose to send them by default. We do offer the
option to receive traditional gummed envelopes.
Most of our Christmas cards can be customized with different paper types to complete your look.
105 lb. Ice Pearl Metallic
A specialty card stock that features a distinctive metallic shimmer, adding a luminous effect to any card. This paper is coated on both sides and does require a non-smearing pen when writing.

Our 110 lb. Value Satin Finish is a lighter version of our standard 130 lb. paper. It has a smooth coated satin finish on both sides for a professional look.

110 lb. Uncoated Matte

Die-cut Christmas cards allow you to feature your company logo both on the front of the card--through a die-cut window in the front of the card--and on the inside of
the card next to your personal message.
Foil stamping uses metallic foil to create a shiny print effect on your Christmas card. CardsDirect's foil designs are exclusive and are a great way to impress customers and employees.
Our prices are dependant on the card you pick, the personalization that you choose, and the features you select. 100 of our junior-size greeting cards on our value-satin paper start at just $116! If you're interested in seeing the options for the lowest
