“Badly Let Down”

Written on: 17/06/2012

I used Karen's cards a couple of years ago for my parents Golden Wedding party - excellent. So naturally when looking for invitations and bridal favours I chose Karens cards. Invitations arrived and was happy but despite numerous e-mails - with no response - no favours received - thats £71 that has just disappeared. I have mailed Karen again today but I am not expecting a response so shall be taking this up with my credit card company and having to look for replacements. I am not only angry… Read Full Review

“Simply the worst!!!”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by AlisonSpicer (1 review written)

Same experiences as everyone else by the looks of it. Ordered invitations in January finally got them end of April. Quality of invitations was poor- RSVP cards smudged and overall appearance bland- certainly get what you pay for. I could have done better myself if I had tried!!! 6 weeks to go to the wedding and no post box or guest book. No replies to my mails and I think she has either gone out of business or just burying her head in the sand. I spent £300 on my order which is still… Read Full Review

“Still no goods!! ”

Written on: 27/04/2012 by Jemily (1 review written)

I ordered some save the date cards in febuary. Still no goods. The website has shut down now. I have emailed her and no responce. The last email I have threatened legal action if I don't get a responce or a refund. This is so upsetting. It was the first thing I did for my wedding after booking the venue. I was so excited and now im just so deflated. £50 might not be alot of money to some people but it is to me! Gutting. Still no reply to my last email. I have all my correspondence and… Read Full Review

She tried to blame my ordering but I was having none of it! she did change them all to my surprise and we soon received them the week after. But we are still awaiting our guest book!! she… Read Full Review

Do yourself a favour and do not order from Karens Cards. Totally awful customer service, cannot believe they call themselves a business. If you're planning your wedding you really don't need the additional stress of ordering from these scam artists… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE KAREN'S CARDS!!!!”

Written on: 22/03/2012 by suzieturnip (2 reviews written)

Since I placed an order with Karen's Cards they are no longer accepting any new orders. What a surprise!!!! I paid for Fast Delivery (7-10 days)invites did not arrive until over a month later. This was our second attempt at invites for my daughter's wedding having been 'scammed' on first attempt. This was explained to 'Karen' and we were depending on reliable honest service second time round. A very very stressful time, no contact via emails pursued through NoChex and when demanded refund Karen… Read Full Review

“Saved on stationery”

Written on: 01/02/2012

I spent ages looking for my stationery. Hard to go with someone who is so cheap when you see other people charging £3-4 an invite. I took the plunge, a gamble if you like and it paid off. I spent £190 on invites, place cards and a guestbook and post box. Was it well made? Yes Was it worth it? yes. I did have a budget of £500 for this and the £300 i saved we got dollars for our honeymoon. Order times are about average from looking at other sites, the quality was good, and I only ever had to… Read Full Review

“Terrible service - order never received”

Written on: 29/11/2011 by crockie (1 review written)

I ordered a hen album for my friend's wedding to give to her from her bridesmaids on the morning of her wedding. I ordered it 3 months ago, having been told by Karen that it would be with me in 4-5 weeks. The wedding was 6 weeks ago - the album is still not here. I have been chasing for weeks, but have had no response. I just want a refund now, as it clearly isn't on it's way. Of course, Karen is still ignoring my emails. Terrible service and complete lack of communication. I'm just glad I… Read Full Review

“Very Poor Service”

Written on: 16/11/2011 by mirfie (1 review written)

We ordered the All that Sparkles and Sophisticated wedding invitations. We were very happy with both sets of cards, they are very nice and well done. Unfortunately, whilst the cards are very nice, the service we received wasn’t the best. Now we knew there would be a delay as Karen told us she was mowed out with orders so we ordered using the express delivery, as Karen told us the invitations would come within a couple of weeks. Alas, the cards took six weeks to come. We kept emailing for… Read Full Review

“6 week wait for smudged invites”

Written on: 14/08/2011

The price seemed very good value compared to other sites and printers. However I had to wait six weeks for them to arrive and when they did 1 in 3 were smudged. It was too late to order more by then. No response at all to two emails to complain. We also ran out of invites. I didn't count them as some had already gone out but I wonder if there weren't enough sent. Would not recommend. Buy cheap buy twice as they say!… Read Full Review

My invites arrived yesterday and I am really happy with them.

“I ordered my save the date cards from Karen's Cards...”

Written on: 16/05/2011

I ordered my save the date cards from Karen's Cards and initially was very impressed with both the cards and the time in which it took to receive them. Karen had very good customer service (I thought) which is why I chose to order through her.

I then ordered my wedding invitations on the 20th of March this year (my wedding is at the end of August) thinking that it would be no time at all before I received them. Its now over 8 weeks later and I am yet to hear anything yet.

To be fair to Karen… Read Full Review

Clr83's Comment

Written on: 24/05/2011

I found this review very helpful because...
<br/>
<br/>I wish I had read this review and similar ones before ordering my Save the Dates through Karen at Karens cards.
<br/>
<br/>She too has stopped taking my calls and emails, after admitting that she had sent my order to the wrong address, and promising to arange a next day delivery (which was meant to be last Saturday!!)
<br/>
<br/>I was obviously very excited when I booked my venue and as it's booked for this September I wanted to let my guests know straight away. I have to say Karen has really put a dampner on this as I've spent so much time chasing her!
<br/>
<br/>I would NOT recommend her website
