great card base
I make batches of Christmas cards to give as gifts. These are the perfect base to start with. While everyone complains about the OT stamp on the back, I either flip them over so it's on the front and cover it with my card design or print up my own labels that say Especially made for you by: and cover it with that. It's better than having to cut and fold 50 cards from card stock, and then try to find separate envelopes that fit to buy.

Quality isn't great, but it's good for the price
Both my sister in law and I bought these. She bought some to make thank you notes for wedding presents and I got them for my kids to make cards for their friends birthdays etc. The quality is not great, sort of like folded poster board. They work well for a kids craft, but my sister in law had to work pretty hard to make them look nice enough for her thank you notes.

Not a big Fan
I bought these because for the price I thought what do I have to lose. Well they are ok looking on the outer side but inside the cards have a gray color or "dirty" look to them. Not only would you have to cover the outer card but also the inner. I should have gone with a more expensive better quality card.

Great project for elementary and middle school kids!
These are perfect for group service projects for kids! We use them for our church elementary-age and middle school kids to decorate for shut-in or sick members. They use stickers, markers, decorative papers, ribbons, etc. and let their imaginations run wild on this project, and the recipients always love them!

I was very disappointed in the quality of the cards
Wanted to make invitations quality was not good.

Good price but you get what you pay for!
These might be OK for little kids who like making cards for friends & family BUT I bought them to make really nice cards to sell at a church craft fair. The whole package is slightly bent, not all perfectly folded and many have damaged corners. They have a semi gloss finish, I wanted flat finish cardstock since the glossy does not stamp well.

No for serious crafting
Cards are glossy surface. Fold is uneven on many cards. I purchased primarily to use in card-making. Price was right but don't recommend for serious high quality card-making.

Ugliest Disappointment Ever!
My group of senior citizens make cards for Operation Write Home (military can send cards back home). We want these cards to be NICE. Instead, I am sent white envelopes with ugly, grayish-yellow cards, I wouldn't send them to my worst enemy (well...maybe my worst enemy). These are disgusting. And then to find I paid MY money for OTC to have its advertisement on the back? How insulting. YOU should pay ME to advertise your product, not the other way around. The price? Double it, because I'm tossing the cards in the trash and can only use the envelopes. I am just so mad!

perfect for decorating
I bought this product as a way to cut back on the cost of birthday cards. When I received them they were perfect for what I had in mind. They are real sturdy. Mine were printed with oriental trading but it is very small and easy to cover up.
