PaperShaker Review

It was wonderful receiving such delightful party invites in the post to review from PaperShaker.  That little bit extra special for the personalisation and using pictures of my own adorable children.  The magic of birthdays is a big thing when you are little – so the build up is all part of the pomp and ceremony! 

Why have a fabulous party planned but only send out cheaply made poor quality invites.  It think its best to set the scene, best foot forward and all that dear chaps!  How often do you invite the whole classroom and only slim pickings actually turn up, the parents probably lost the uninspiring invite!  Well not with these beauty’s they will be kept as reminders so they know where they need to order their own set.  Kids party invites will never be the same...

They look very professionally done with good quality paper and a varnished finish.  I am so pleased with the end result.  My boys are so excited now they have seen them; poor loves are counting down the sleeps well into next year when they actually have their parties!!! 

Eldest has the card party buzz, which created quite a buzz literally!!!  He was thrilled to see photos of the memories he treasures, an owl handling experience in Center Parcs and a medieval visit to Chirk Castle.  It is lovely tailoring the invites to what interests your child, it makes them more meaningful I think.

Youngest has the card best day ever and he thought it was very funny seeing himself in comedy glasses, nose and moustache on the front of his invite!  He cannot wait for his friends to see his "extra special invites".

It was a simple process ordering them, very user friendly, quick and easy to upload photos and adjust positions, alter the clip art and enjoy playing with the design.  I did have a small hiccup in that initially I only received half my order but that gave me an opportunity to also review the customers services for the site.  I emailed and received a reply within the hour, I was very impressed with such exceptionally prompt service.  They replied apologizing and I had the reminder of my order the next day!  I cannot fault the service, they resolved my problem in a pleasing manner. 

I would use PaperShaker again without question, just seeing how much more excited it made my boys was enough of an incentive to come back!  I am also happier sending out superior quality invites as it seems mad not to after spending a small fortune on an entertainer, expensive party bags and a buffet that would be the envy of most royal courts!  I do not want to let the side down with wafer thin invites with no character!

I am sure I have tempted you already but to make it even more affordable I have a 25% voucher to entice you further, simply enter the code MISSINGSLEEP at the checkout to receive your discount.  This code is valid until the 6th of October.  PaperShaker also do baby announcement cards, wedding invitations and thank you cards, so well worth a visit to the website.
