Rated 1 out of 5 by hallmarkuser Merry Chalkboard was NOT Merry
Our Christmas card was so dark I was totally embarrassed that I sent it at all. Hallmark refunded all of my money but I am still so disappointed that I sent out such an awful Christmas card this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kevinls Poor color, too dark
I've used this service in the past and was very satisfied and my wife has always been a big Hallmark fan. Unfortunately, this card order didn't turn out as well. While the process of creating the card was very smooth (only problem is you don't get to preview the the card at full scale) and the expedited order cost was ok and very timely - the picture quality and especially the color, brightness and contrast was terrible. The actual picture, was taken professionally and very bright and colorful (much as the example shown) and the small sized preview you could see, showed bright and colorful as well. The cards themselves are printed at a very low resolution, colors muted and contrast minimized - very sad. I would send back, but between returning, discussing with Hallmark and then have reprinted and resent, it would be after Christmas... Unfortunate, as our names and Hallmark's appear on the card...

I'm glad you asked!! The cards were great, but the picture that I had put on the card was perfect when I put it on the computer. When I got the actual card in the mail is much too dark. You could hardly see my child. It was so disappointing!! I love that I have all of my addresses in the hallmark site, it makes it very convenient, but I will think twice before using it again next year!!

Only problem was the return envelopes delivered had someone else's address on them! I only ordered 4 that were not pre-mailed, so I'm hoping the other ones had the correct address on them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TAHinGA An adequate card with a good mailing service
We've been using Hallmark to send our Christmas cards out for the past 2-3 years. The convenience of having our Christmas card list maintained and the cards mailed is outstanding. This year we had trouble finding an attractive, affordable card for the 150 or so cards we send each year. The card we settled on was fine, but the selection in the price range ($2 plus or minus) we were looking for was not as good as we would have liked. Hopefully there will be a better selection in this price range next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Danielle Cute format bad image printing
We really liked the format, layout, and style of this card, but our picture is much darker than the original. The picture was very bright - taken on the beach in peak sun. I assume that it was darkened to produce a "better" balance of colors and saturation levels, but the faces are so dark that you can barely see them now. It was pretty disappointing.

The cards were perfect; however the envelopes were somewhat of challenge. The envelope was sealed 3/4 of the way and was difficult to get the card all the way into the envelope. It worked however there was a space that was not totally used in the envelope. A few of the envelopes worked as they should but the majority did not. We still did like the card an were pleased with the overall effect.
