Frequently Asked Questions

  • About Our Products
    • - Do your products come in different sizes?

      The best way to determine what size and formats are available for a product is to explore the Product Options menu. Click the “Size & Format” section to reveal all of the available dimensions.

      Our most popular products are our greeting cards. Some of these products can be ordered in a flat or folded format. Our most popular card sizes are:

      • Standard Size (6 3/4" x 4 7/8")
      • Signature Size (7 7/8" x 5 5/8")

    • - What is on the inside of your greeting cards?

      Most of our greeting card products include a default message or verse on the card’s interior. You can choose to keep, edit or delete this design element. You can select the option to “Order Blank Inside,” which will remove any default, interior messaging. Be sure to browse our Verse Library for a complete list of pre-formatted, pre-designed verses.

    • - What is the minimum quantity of greeting cards available for purchase?

      Many of our products have a minimum order quantity of 10 and are sold in increments of 5 up to 50. Quantities over 50 are sold in increments of 25.

    • - What is the maximum quantity of cards available for purchase?

      You can order up to 100,000 cards on our site.

    • - What is the difference between Gummed and Peel & Seal envelope closure?

      Gummed envelopes include a layer of adhesive along the envelope’s flap that must be moistened to create a seal. This is the most common type of envelope. Peel & Seal envelopes include a strip of latex adhesive on the envelope’s flap. Remove the protective seal; press your envelope closed and your envelopes are ready to go. Peel & Seal closure is a clean, time-saving feature.

    • - Can I order extra envelopes?

      Extra envelopes come in handy if mistakes are made during addressing. When selecting your style of envelope from the Product Options, you will have the opportunity to add extra envelopes to your order. Extra envelopes are $.25/ea. If you need more than 500 extra envelopes, please contact a Customer Service team member.

    • - Do you sell eCards?

      We do not have eCards available at this time.

    • - Do you offer addressing services?

      Addressing and mailing services are available upon request. Please contact our customer support team for details and pricing.

  • Customizing Our Products
    • - How do I place a reorder?

      Log into My Account where you will see your Order Status & History. Find the item and click the reorder button. You will need to review your customization again before you can place it into your cart. Be sure to review your Product Options to ensure you want the same quantity as before. Reorders can only be placed for orders originally placed on or after 10/17/2018.

    • - What can I customize on my product?

      You can customize your card size, paper type, envelope style, and card content.

    • - Can I receive a sample before I place my order?

      Printed samples are available for most of our products, and you can order up to three free printed samples on select greeting cards. Our digitally printed samples can be fully customized, allowing you to see your unique personalization before placing your order. You are also able to select your preferred size and paper stock. Envelopes are not included with your samples. Most sample requests are delivered within 7 business days. Should you need more than three samples or if you require expedited shipping, contact our customer support team at 1.800.479.5930.

    • - Can I order blank cards?

      The vast majority of our cards can be ordered blank inside. Choose the button “Order Blank Inside” or delete any unwanted design elements once you are inside our product editor. Some cards feature a pre-printed verse or design that cannot be removed.

    • - How can I add a photo, logo, or signature to my product?

      Within our product editor, you can choose Upload Photo, Logo or Signature. Click the desired option. A popup with detailed instructions will appear. You can choose to upload an existing file or upload an image from your smartphone. If you require assistance, contact a Graphics Specialist at 1.800.479.5930.

    • - Can I see a proof of my customization?

      We offer complimentary digital proofs sent via email, but only if a proof is requested. If you would like to see a digital proof before placing your order, simply add a note in the Special Instructions section. You will have an opportunity to do this before an item is added to your cart. If you have contacted our Customer Service team for graphics help, let a representative know you would like a proof sent via email before your order is placed.

      Your proof will give you the option to Request Changes or Approve the artwork. If changes are needed, simply reply to the email with new instructions. If everything looks correct, click Approve. Your order will be on hold until we receive your proof approval. Requesting a digital proof can add additional production time to your estimated delivery date.

  • Shipping & Production
    • - How long will it take to get my order?

      The time it takes to receive a customized product is a combination of production, printing and shipping. Production + Printing + Shipping = Timing.

      Production and printing each take approximately 1-4 business days. Shipping time can take 1-6 business days depending on your shipping address as well as your shipping method. This means you can usually expect your order to arrive in 2-10 business days. See more here.

    • - How can I track the shipping status of my order?

      Once your order has shipped, you will receive a Shipping Confirmation email which includes a link to track you order. You can also view your shipping status from your My Account page.

    • - What carrier will deliver my package?

      We use the following carriers: UPS, FedEx and USPS.

    • - Where will my order ship from?

      USGA has four print facilities in the United States and one in Canada. Our orders are geo-distributed, which means your order is processed and printed at the facility closest to your shipping address; this ensures your order will arrive as quickly as possible. Depending on stock availability and production capacity, multiple items from the same order may ship from different facilities.

    • - Do you ship internationally?

      Currently we only ship to the United States and Canada. Standard ground services are unavailable for Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Orders to these areas will automatically be set to the most economical expedited air option available.

  • Payment & Billing
    • - What is the Account Credit and how do I use it?

      You can receive an Account Credit for a number of reasons, including a refund should you return an order or as part of a special promotion associated with a promo code.

    • - Do you charge sales tax?

  • Technical Help
    • - What type of file formats do you accept?

      To ensure proper print quality, any imagery you upload should be at a resolution of 300 dpi or more. If you are unsure about a file’s resolution, don’t worry. Our system will warn you if an image is at too low of a resolution to safely use on your product. We accept the following file formats: jpg, jpeg, tif, tiff, pdf, png, gif, bmp, svg and eps. We are unable to use Word Documents and PowerPoint files. If you need help with your artwork, call 1.800.479.5930 or email a Graphic Specialist at the following email address:[email protected].

    • - What if my image appears fuzzy or pixelated on the preview?

      The way your images appear within our editor and in your digital proof is how your product will print. If your image appears blurry or pixelated, that is an indication that the image you have uploaded needs to be a higher resolution. Our system will warn you if an image is at too low of a resolution to safely use on your product. However, scaling an image can affect your image clarity. If you are concerned about print quality, contact one of our Graphic Specialists at [email protected] or use the Special Instructions section to request that a designer reviews your artwork before your order is completed.

    • - I don’t have my artwork in a digital format; can I send it to you to be scanned?

      If you do not have your logo or artwork in a digital format, you can place your order, include a note in the Special Instructions section, and then mail your images to the USGAcardshop corporate office. Your order will be placed on hold until we receive your items. We will then send you a digital proof via email for your review. Please include an order number and contact information with your artwork. Artwork can be mailed to: USGAcardshop Graphics Department, 12750 Merit Drive, Suite 900, Dallas, TX 75251.
