I ordered our Christmas cards from them on the 28th of November and I have been checking the order status every day and it keeps saying "printing". I have sent 2 emails with no reply and keep calling their number and it's always busy.

I'm VERY mad because I need them by this weekend. I never expected it to take this long for them to be sent out. When I usually order through them it takes about 4-7 days for me to receive them and it's already been 9 days!!!!!


UPDATE: Just waited on hold for over 15 minutes, long distance mind you, to find out that they are behind with a Christmas rush. She tells me she is going to rerun the print and that they will ship it out Priority mail and it will be here in 4-6 days.

Here's the problem, I was using these cards to announce my pregnancy to my family this weekend...I am so bummed now I want to cry. I can't even do what I was planning on doing. This irks me to no end.

Here's the card...I think I have a solution, I will just use this as a template and make my own here at home for those I was giving out this weekend. I am NOT going to let them ruin my plan!

That's an adorable card!

I have ordered two things from Winkflash. The first was a canvas that I was NOT happy with. I emailed them my disatisfaction and got no reply. The second was photo mugs which were great. So, I guess it's hit-or-miss with them. Personally, I would like more consistancy with place I order from so I won't be using them in the future.

I don't know what size your cards are, but you could get them printed at Walmart or Costco. They can do it in 1-hour.

I designed it on their site...so I won't be able to send that image to them for printing. I did just make my own and I like it better than theirs...but I just don't have the ink to print them all! Here is the one I made...it turned out great!

That looks fabulous! Is it 4x6? Send it to Walmart or Costco and you will save some money.

That is cute! Bummer that your order isn't here though. I would just take it somewhere
else and get it printed.

Hi, I am Tiffany, just a lurker that is interested in photography. Anyways, I noticed that your card is missing a word and wanted to let you know just in case "Logan and Camden are going to be big brothers. Not sure if you changed it not.

Well I got my winkflash cards in and they are cut off on one side, I am pissed - they did NOT show up on the website print preview like that. I e-mailed them, no reply yet. I am going to have to get re-prints at WM so I can have them tomorrow.
