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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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...

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...

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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.

Although the end product was good from Karen's Cards, the stress in getting them, at a time when the least amount of stress is better, was shocking!
Started very well with email correspondence slow but acceptable. We joined up to the site and received an email which offered us a 10% discount, which then (surprise surprise!) didn't work.
We paid for the fast service which was quoted at getting to us in 2 weeks. We ordered place cards with name meanings on the 6th March and have only just... (read more)

I had my doubts in using Karen's cards for all our wedding stationery given the mixed reviews. However, I was pleased with our invitations (which arrived more or less on time) and Karen was quite good at responding to emails in the beginning. However, the place settings; OOS and menus were very late and the thank you cards did not turn up until 2 weeks after we had come back from honeymoon, despite my request for them to be sent with the wedding stationery. We still haven't received the... (read more)
