Pear Tree Greetings, a small but hardworking company of 17, helps the average mom create memorable, long-lasting photo greeting cards that share life’s greatest moments.
Greeting cards are known for spreading joy, good news and all of the moments in between. Even as communication moves more and more online, greeting cards still offer special moments, shared between friends and family, that can be held in your hand.
And Pear Tree Greetings creates those magical moments.
Combining personal photos and innovative designs (such as photo-book Christmas cards), Pear Tree offers moms a way to create their own beautiful greeting cards or invitations instead of buying generic cards at the store.
Producing their 25th million photo card this winter, Pear Tree has printed cards and invitations on 100 percent recycled, high-quality card stock since its inception and continues to produce extraordinary cards that inspire moms and their loved ones. Pear Tree has always been green and is proud to continue that tradition, even though the company doesn’t boast about it (unlike other printing companies).
“We have the lowest refund rate in the industry,” Bottner said. “And customers say they always keep their Pear Tree cards and don’t feel bad throwing others away.”
Designed by Moms, For Moms
What started in 2008 as a dream to produce holiday-inspired photo cards and announcements has turned Pear Tree Greetings into one of the fastest growing online printing boutiques in the country.
Now offering baby, graduation, wedding and stationery invitations and greeting cards, Pear Tree (which adopted its name from the infamous “The 12 Days of Christmas” song) is still a small business that makes sure every card produced satisfies the customer.
“Pear Tree is for the mom out there who wants a baby announcement or holiday card,” said Stephanie Bottner, Pear Tree’s general manager. “We are customer-oriented.”
Crafted to Inspire
As moms themselves, Bottner and the rest of the Pear Tree team created a fun process for moms to play around with card designs. The designing process is so easy and quick that it’s called the “play place.” (And sometimes moms only go on there to play around!)
“Other printers complicate, but we keep it simple,” Bottner said.
After going through the designing portion, personalization tool and order completion, customers’ cards are printed within two business days. With seven different printers across the country held to the same high-quality standards, Pear Tree makes every customer’s order quick, efficient and affordable. Each card is as low as $0.65 to $2.55.
“The quality is the part that we really work hard on,” Bottner said. “We have the lowest prices out there.”
It’s All About the Boutique Experience
With thousands of other online printing websites out there, Pear Tree stands out because of its “boutique” experience. Instead of evolving into a mass printing company, Pear Tree stuck to its small roots and remains as an advocate for the average mom.
“We’re a small business without thousands of designers,” Bottner said. “If you’re looking for a boutique experience, Pear Tree is the place to go.”
If you are looking for greeting cards this holiday season, Pear Tree is offering up to $80 off your purchase though Dec. 14 and are always offering discounts. Throughout the year, Pear Tree offers different themes and deals for other occasions, such as Christmas cards, wedding invitations, birth announcements and graduation announcements.
With deals this good, Pear Tree helps customers create beautiful photo greeting cards on any budget.
