    Default Greeting cards

    I seem to be able to shop anywhere and grab a birthday, anniversary, engagement card etc etc..

    The quality is of a very high standard or straight to the point.

    I prefer to read a card and put lots of thought into what I buy for its recipient.

    Can you get good quality cards from NZ or would I be better bringing a stash with me??

    Hi,

    You can get them but there's not as much choice (as with everything else) but there are some good card shops and they do sell them in supermarkets & newsagents & bookshops - they're not cheap - where I've been shopping decent ones like I used to buy at home are $5- each. I tend to shop at Spotlight (a craft store) and make my own - they work out cheaper.

    Sure can!

    You can buy cards in any price range, with the best ones being quite expensive. There is a quite large range to choose from, but the best selections are usually only found in the bigger stationary and book stores. The biggest selections can be found in places like Whitcoulls and Paper Plus, and the like.

    Hallmark cards make some very nice cards. :cool

    I rely on my artistic bent and make my own.

    Haven't bought cards in NZ but the ones I have received from friends and rellies there all seem to be like something out of the 50s.

    Now that DOES make me sound an ungrateful blighter doesn't it?

    ok then, what's the price of cards in the uk.
    probably find there is not a lot of difference. I haven't found the cards dated, seem pretty similar to the to me. In fact we bought one for Petes bro last year and received the same card for Pete from friends in the UK.
