Smiles Across Miles Really Delivers!

Ever made a trip to the local stationery store, looking for the perfect way to send photos of your family, only to come up empty-handed? Are the "designs" too generic and impersonal for the message you want to send?

Why settle for the ordinary, when you could have the extraordinary, designs that don't just serve as placeholders for your photos but actually complement, maybe even enhance them? Why not opt for professional, studio quality photo cards?

Too expensive, you say? Not if you go to Smile Across Miles for your cards.

What's Smiles Across Miles? It's a delightful service providing professional, studio quality layouts for your home photos, and it's the brain-child of a SAHM of three who took her interest in photography to the next level and made her passion her profession.

Kerry, the Mom behind Smiles Across Miles, found that, traditionally, custom photo greeting cards were either too expensive or required a huge minimum order, which made them impractical for budget-minded families (and who isn't budget conscious these days. And the less-expensive generic cards for inserting your own photos were typically--well--just that, generic. So, since she enjoyed sending her family pictures of her kids, like most Moms, but didn't want to break the bank or settle for less, she decided to try her hand at making her own.

And let me tell you, Smiles Across Miles has some lovely designs! From birth announcements to wedding invitations, this site has you covered. There's even a special "print your own" section for those of you with high-quality printers. You can pay a set rate for one of Kerry's designs and receive a high-resolution image, which you can then use as often as you like with your own photos, which is great for those times when you DO need a lot of cards printed (and surprisingly economical).

If you opt to have Kerry take your image in hand, though, and print up your photo cards for you, you'll find her fees very reasonable for that as well--some of her designs run as little as .90 a card, less than the cost of a regular, non-photo greeting card at your local supermarket!

In fact, a friend of ours from high school just had his first child, an adorable little girl, and I'm considering gifting him with a custom layout for those all-important birth announcements he'll be needing.

And here's a tip: right now, until the end of the month, if you use the code NOSHIP at checkout, shipping is free! So don't waste any time. Give Smiles Across Miles a try!
