"For the design, I chose the purple option. They came out vibrant against the black background. While this card is little, I had no trouble reading the text in the banner or any of the fonts I chose to print on the front. The card printed crisp and clear on the thick card stock. They arrive flat, so you will need to fold them. I placed my under a heavy book to fold them down slightly more. The accompanying envelopes are of a fine quality. I opted for the straight edge on the back. They work well with address labels."
