Big Photo Cards from Costco


edit2_SUSMINP-MKT12121013140I ordered Christmas cards this year  and was pleasantly surprised to see that Costco has moved away from the industry standard 4×8 photo cards. Costco’s cards are 6×7.5, which is 40% bigger than standard cards. Not only are these cards bigger, their size is better suited to typical photos.

Costco’s cards are printed on high-quality Fuji Crystal Archive paper and come with four free calendars. Even better, they are priced at only $14.99 for 50, which is less than most generic cards. I ordered mine and had them in less than two hours.

    Mark, you posted something awhile ago about why our CM customers should order our digital photo books over others like shutterfly. Where can I find that?
