My love for all things personalized and Canadian are well documented. So, you can imagine my excitement when I won a $50 gift certificate from Elephoto!
Elephoto is a Canadian service that “takes your digital photos and turns them into magical keepsakes”. They offer canvas and poster prints, photo books, calendars and photo cards. I was already familiar with the company, even before I won, however, I was fortunate enough to get a chance to meet with two of their Social Media contacts at the ShesConnected conference.
Seeing as the holidays are just around the corner, this came at the perfect time. For me, the hardest part was deciding what product(s) to get. After wavering between calendars and photo cards, I decided on the latter. I figured that everyone knew what came after January but having a picture of my child in their mailbox… Priceless!
Two favourites in One with Elephoto!
Their website contains a FAQ section and Video Tutorial which I watched after completing my order because
I forgot I wanted to make sure that the five-step process was easy as it claims to be. And it was!
The beginning of the process requires you to select Premium or Standard Paper. Seeing as they were both the same price, I chose Premium. I can’t tell you what photos printed on “Standard” paper look like but I honestly thought that mine were photographs. The quality was that good!
Choosing a theme was so much fun as there were so many to choose from with different borders, # of pictures and their locations on the page. I went with a Contemporary theme as I liked the simple lines and knew that I could add art (including zoo animals) if I wanted.
The price? I received 24 customized notecards/postcards, on Premium quality paper, delivered to my door within two business days for less than $60 total. That’s around $2.50 per card. Did I mention they’re customized!
The entire process from start to finish took less than two days. I am not exaggerating by one hour. I placed my order late on Monday night, within a few hours (possibly Tuesday am by now), I received a confirmation email that my order had been filled and was being shipped!? By Wednesday afternoon, it was on my doorstep. Wow!
I really can’t say enough about my entire experience. If you are looking for unique and affordable products that cater to the perfectionist and procrastinator in you then,

I’d appreciate it if everyone acted surprized when they receive their card in the mail this holiday season.
Journeys of The Zoo received product that enabled us to complete this review. However, they were provided with no expectation of a review.
