I was about 12 years old when I realized I could not see correctly – I was fine while reading. But ask me to read a street sign? I couldn’t help you. Since my mom wore contacts – I went straight to them. I didn’t think of getting a pair of prescription glasses. It wasn’t until my long design studio classes in college that they gave me a problem. Even after I started my first job – being on the computer all day really dried out my eyes. My contacts irritated me so much it was unbearable and I couldn’t do my work. I knew I needed to get a pair of eyeglasses.
These days it can be tough to get a good pair of glasses without leaving a hole in your wallet. The whole eye doctor process – its a pain! What if I want to be cute and stylish like Penelope Garcia? She has new glasses frames every episode! Most people would think they couldn’t afford to do that, but I recently discovered GlassesUSA.com. Besides their high quality frames and lenses, they offer a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee along with a generous refer-a-friend program.

Finding a perfect place for online printing services can be tough. You design, you edit and you design again. You upload, and submit it. And then you pray… you pray your design will look beautiful printed. Just as you had imagined. To me, getting my final piece in the mail is like a mini designer Christmas. It’s so exciting when you open the box and look at your design… alive and in color!
With PrintRunner.com you don’t have to worry about worrying you know you will have something beautiful delivered to your doorstep. What I love about Print Runner is the fact that they started small ten years ago and are now a 25,000 sq ft facility doing all the work on the premises. You do not have to worry about anyone playing “telephone” with your design. Located in Southern California, Print Runner can complete all your printing needs from invitations to stickers.
Depending on who you know it might be easy to find someone to design a simple postcard but when it comes to finding a place to print postcards it can be tough. I had quoted a few local places in my town but it became too much. Printing costs can be insane if you don’t know where to look. The best place to print postcards price-wise is online. Most places will let you upload a file with your own design (don’t forget the margins!). Some have their own online design tool which is great – if you’re not a designer. For me it seems limited compared to what I can do with photoshop but for someone who just needs something simple and has a good sense of grammar the online design tools are great.
Would you like to win a set of your own custom stickers? You have the option to upload a file with your design.
