When I went to get more of Staples’ cards, I found they were sold out of their own product, so I opted to buy this Avery ‘card’ paper instead. I thought, because of the Avery name, the product would be comparable or of superior quality. BOY was I disappointed! I might as well have used 24 lb. paper I had at home. The Avery paper in this package is NOT cardstock, which is what I expected for a greeting card type of product. I’m Very disappointed, particularly because I expected better of Avery. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 33 of 35 people found the following review helpful A Good Deal, June 26, 2004 By Amy Liz (Maryland) – This review is from: Avery Textured Half-Fold Greeting Cards for Inkjet Printers, Uncoated, 5.5 x 8.5 Inches, White, Box of 30 (03378) (Office Product) These cards are overall a good deal. They work best for invitations, announcements, and other times when you will be doing mass mailings. They are a little too flimsy for my liking for nicer, individual cards, despite Avery advertising them as “heavyweight” on the box. That’s the only reason I give them four stars instead of five. Other than that these are great cards; I haven’t had problems with smearing or paperjams at all. The cards are scored evenly and fold very easily. The texture is a nice touch, too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 29 of 31 people found the following review helpful Who needs Hallmark?, January 12, 2008 By wiredweird (Earth, or somewhere nearby) – Well, that’s not a fair question. Lots of people need to have others create the words and images that they send to their friends and loved ones. The rest of us have our own ideas. We know what we want to say and how, or we find images of artworks that deliver some message uniquely well. This is for the rest of us. This form produces one card from each 8.5×11 sheet – folded, that’s a bit bigger than a 5×8 file card, somewhat larger than most greeting cards. The cards take inkjet printing beautifully, they’re lightly scored for precise folding, and, even with the costs of ink and whatnot, come out far cheaper than any store-bought card around. The Avery web site offers templates for aligning your art to the forms, clip art, and other free aids in using these cards. The templates take the guesswork out of laying out the card; I haven’t tried the other tools they offer. I have only one minor complaint, that the envelopes aren’t the most opaque – no big deal unless you have a sensitive message or want opening the envelope to reveal its surprise. That problem isn’t big enough to stop me from using these cards or stop me from coming back for more. They aren’t the fanciest around, but perfectly fine for most kinds of notes and greetings. And, most importantly, these cards carry my own thoughts, not some Hallmark writer’s. — wiredweird 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
