Inspiration and Design Idea's: 35 Amazing New Year Cards
If we're being honest, there's a handful of things that happened this year that I would love to leave behind. On the upside though, there are also awesome ones that I would like to carry along with me for a long time. I'm sure a lot of people are thinking the same way as we count down the days till the end of the year, even to the extent of creating a list of resolutions to do, working to break old habits, coming up with a "gratitude list", or updating bucket lists. Whatever it is that you want to keep and however you want to spend the rest of 2014, New Year's eve is really something to celebrate and give a toast to.
Why not share these thoughts to loved ones? Your family and friends would surely appreciate your expression of love and good wishes this coming year, so why not hand them out a New Year card? Can't think of anything nice to give? Don't worry - As always, we got you covered. We have 20 (+15, so that really makes them 35) New Year card designs waiting for you. Whether you're looking for something festive, traditional, minimalistic, or colorful and vibrant, we had this list tailored for you.

Finally, someone spoke his mind. Well, it's not far from reality that some decades ago, we might have imagined that by this time we are already too far advanced when it comes to technology, so much ahead of our time when it comes to innovation that we can easily transport to another planet or something. Sea and Lake had the same mindset when it comes to this, but sadly it's not our reality yet. Nice try, though.

Lovely designs but service is slipping and quality dropping when it used to be excellent. Feedback on their site is completely fake (they will only post positive reviews) Been using them for over a decade but my last order was disappointing: send them a perfect high-res image but the print was blurry and showed a blue-ish hue all over. They are reprinting, but it will be to late by the time they arrive.
Vistaprint is best value for money, i've been using them for businesscards/flyers and stationary. They never let me down.
I love Cafepress, this company has the best customer service: My sister ordered a printed sweatshirt for my son from them. Unfortunately it didn't fit him (the sweatshirt was to large). We contacted RMA and within a few hours they replied: we will send you a new one in the correct size. we didn't have to ship the old one back, which saved me postage and a trip to the postoffice. I never had this happen before, very impressed by Cafepress!
Im not impressed by Vistaprint at all. Their product pricing is competitive but their shipping prices are extremely high. On top of that it took almost 3 weeks for my order to arrive. Everything looks good and cheap with Vistaprint, but at checkout the negative experience begins. I will never use Vistaprint again.
Very Poor and inefficient company, wasted dozens of calls and hours of time on the phone with them trying to correct an error that a 3 year old could fix in 2 minutes! - Could have made better cards myself. Upgraded and Paid €39 to ensure good quality and ended up with complete crap.
