Mango Ink was created by Ryan and Heidi a couple frustrated with the lack of unique quality choices for cards, like invitations.  Mango Ink offers a large selection of cards made with eco-friendly 130lb card stock that are custom designed for you.  The process is relatively quick.  Proofs are guaranteed 2 business days after photos are received and the finished product ships 2-3 days after the proofs are approved. Prices range from product to product, but on average you will pay anywhere from $1.50 to $2.75 per card.  When I first glanced at the prices I thought that they were a little expensive, but then I remembered that I had paid almost $4.00 for a birthday card in the supermarket.   I received a sample pack of cards to help with my review.  Each card was a warm blend of artistry and practicality.  Take a look at the video to see the samples close up and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

What I love about Mango Ink is their passion to create.  An invitation from Mango Ink truly stands out.  They have a wonderful line of wedding invitations that are subtle, classy, and more modern than your average invitation.  I also love the company’s efforts to be “green”.  Many of the shipping products that they use, from boxes to return labels, are made from 100% recycled paper.  They also make an effort to support local artists and businesses.  They offer a large selection including; wedding packages, birthday invitations, thank you cards, save the date cards, stationary, birth announcements, and fun holiday themed cards.

The bottom line is that Mango Ink is a great way to start any celebration.  A beautifully designed invitation, by your own team of artists just waiting to create some magic for you.

    I love the holiday peppermint design!

  2. Cat says:

    Love the Happy Winter card. We are a SUPER busy family and I’m having trouble getting my 7 month old, 6 year old and 16 year old in the same place at the same time for a family photo. Then, once I do, there is no guarantee that my 7 month old will be “in the mood” for pictures. So, the multiple pictures on this design are very appealing to me. Then I can add individual pics of them.

    I love the Snow Sand holiday card in the classic style. It fits our Florida Christmases very well! Though I must say it was hard to choose because they are all so visually appealing. 🙂

  8. Stephanie says:

    The cost of greeting cards at the store has gotten ridiculous so this is a nice alternative. The fact that you get it at this price WITH personalization is an amazing deal!!
