I actually heard about Moonpig not from the popular advert (which completely went over my head until I had actually used the company) but from Dooyoo where I saw a review saying that you can personalise cards. I decided to check it out as I had heard of the brand name before! I will be reviewing the site from the point of view of a customer who has ordered cards from there. I know that Moonpig offer various other services such as flower and gift ordering.
I ordered a card to wish my friend good luck on her year abroad at university. The website asks you to choose a design from their huge range, then there are options to personalise the card on the front and the inside and even the back cover.
You can write the inside message for your card online, so it looks neat and tidy and you can theme the text with the front of the card (for example I ordered an Edward Monkton card and used the same text on the inside of the card.)
It's not like personalisation hasn't been done before for gifts, but I think that personalised cards can be so tasteful and really thoughtful compared to buying a random shop card with no reference to the person and Moonpig have really done well in producing an easy to use site with a great product which is what makes them a winning brand in my opinion.
Communication from the company is good and not spammy. After ordering you receive a confirmation email and shortly later you receive a feedback quiz to rate their service.
I was really pleased with the service and the pricing was reasonable for what you got for the price. I didn't hesitate to order a second card from Moonpig a few weeks after the first order (yesterday in fact!) as the service was top quality and the products are ingenious and a brilliant idea.
The second card I ordered was a Me to You birthday card with an option to add a photo - so I personalised her 21st card with a pic of me, her and our other best friend. She is the kind of person who LOVES personalised things and I know she will really appreciate this so I'm excited to give it to her at her birthday party in a few weeks time!
The quality of the cards was very good, and I have no complaints with Moonpig compromising on standards of materials as is common for say, personalised business cards sites.
Delivery for me was prompt with the card arriving two days after ordering and one day after dispatch which I was pleased with.
--How to order--
Simply customise your card the way you want then pay by card online. Moonpig will then send you a confirmation email with details of your order.
Options for delivery are delivery direct to the person or delivery to you. There is also the option to choose the day of delivery and to pay extra for express delivery if you want to get an absolute guarantee of next day delivery.
I actually ordered the first card on a whim, after deciding I wanted to surprise my friend with a gift and a good luck card for her year abroad and the prices were reasonable enough that I didn't feel like I was overspending even though I am on a budget at the moment! Its a thoughtful something extra without spending a fortune!
You pay a standard 1st class stamp charge for a card or a little extra for an express delivery.
--Pricing and availability--
As far as I know you can only get Moonpig cards on their website at Moonpig.com, and the standard card price is £2.99 without delivery, so with delivery included your card comes to £3.69. In my opinion this is reasonable, considering that cards in the shops not personalised can be anything from £1 up to £5! These cards offer a little something extra for your money and it is for this reason that I would recommend them for greeting cards and would be willing to pay for a really nice card.
Before Moonpig, to make a card a little more personal I would either make a card myself or spend time writing a long message inside, and I find Moonpig convenient but still with a little something to make the card special and to make it stand out!
Personalised cards, top quality service, easy site to navigate, 5 stars from me.
Summary: Quality service, unique business idea
