Sending Personalised Cards Online

We started Cardly because we wanted to help people create more personal, heartfelt cards for all the special people in their lives while also having a positive impact on the world. From the feedback we get on a daily basis we're proud to say we're hitting that mark, and we'd love to help more people around the world send truly personalised cards for any occasion.

Sending Beautiful, Personalised Cards Online

Cardly helps you create amazing, personalised greeting cards for any occasion and we've aimed to make this whole process better - both online and offline. You can start by browsing the thousands of unique, beautiful designs from our community of independent artists or truly customise your card by uploading your own artwork. It might be a photo that means a lot to the person receiving your card, maybe you're welcoming a new face to the world, or perhaps you've hand-drawn the perfect design for a friend or loved one. Whatever route you've decided to go, this is just the first step of creating a personalised card online, in the comfort of home.

With your artwork selected, you can then use our card editor to pick the perfect handwriting style and messiness, then craft the perfect, personal message for your recipient. Use extra note areas to add messages from other family members or friends in their own unique, personalised styles, or add some doodles to truly make your card special. A few awesome dinosaur sketches for a special grandchild or some more colourful doodles for your favourite brother will have them truly appreciating the time you've spent customising a card just for them.

When you're done, simply tell us your details and the address we're sending to, pay for your order and you're done! We've intentionally tried to create the best online greeting card builder in the UK (or anywhere else for that matter!) and combine this with a fast, no-fuss checkout process. We're never going to upsell you with a mug, flowers or chocolates when you're trying to create a beautiful, personalised card for a friend or loved one.

Personalised Birthday Cards Online

Birthdays are a perfect occasion to create a truly unique, personalised card for friends, family or colleagues in the UK or anywhere else in the world. Cardly prints and posts locally in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and Canada, meaning we're able to get your customised birthday card where it needs to be quicker, cheaper and in better condition than most of our competitors.

With our massive range of birthday cards, you're sure to find the right design to personalise a unique, thoughtful birthday card for a friend or loved one. There's literally thousands of incredible designs from our community of hand-picked, independent artists - from the simple and elegant to the funny or downright rude, we're confident you'll find the perfect card. Customise cards for your mum, dad, sister, brother, or your best friend with the perfect style, wording and doodles to express how much they mean to you. Make your text a little (or a lot!) larger for grandma and perhaps dial down the messiness so she's able to read her birthday card easily. There's so many ways to personalise a birthday card for a friend or loved one and we're sure you'll have a ton of fun doing it.

All of our cards are sent in a high quality kraft envelope with a real stamp and your recipient's name and address in the same font as you used in your card, keeping the truly personal feel through the whole experience. You'll find our greeting cards are much higher quality than other providers, from the environmentally-certified stock we used down to the beautiful envelopes and quality printing all of our locations produce. Best of all? Postage is free to over 30 countries, meaning the price you see on our site is all you're paying to create a personalised card - nothing more to add as most of our competitors sting you for!

Customise Cards For Any Occasion

Life isn't just about birthdays though - we have thousands of designs for personalised cards for all occasions, from congratulations and thank yous to housewarming wishes and messages of love and support. No matter what life event you're looking to celebrate (or commiserate!), we're certain you'll find the perfect card to express your feelings with.

To help out with remembering all these important events, you can set up reminders in your Cardly account for anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas and everything in between. As each date comes closer we'll send you an email reminder, along with some samples of our newest and best selling cards as suggestions - or pick and personalise your own from our extensive range. We'll send your reminders with plenty of notice too, so you'll never be scrambling to send an anniversary card or customise a birthday card  at the last moment!

Personalised Cards in the UK & World Wide

Cardly prints and posts from the UK daily and if your order is placed before 10am GMT we'll get your personalised card in the post that same day. All cards sent within the UK come with free first class postage, meaning your card should arrive the next business day in 95% of cases according to Royal Mail. We also deliver to many European countries from the UK as well, so you can also customise beautiful cards for friends and family in Ireland, Space, Netherlands, France and many other locations - also with free postage and same day mailing!

We don't just service the UK though - Cardly also produces customised cards in the United States, Canada and Australia, with free postage in all these locations too. Best of all, we'll automatically create your personalised card in the location closest to your recipient, meaning they'll get your card quicker, cheaper and more friendly to the environment since we're doing away with airmail! No more waiting weeks for cards to arrive in the US or Australia that are only produced in the UK - and a much lower chance of anything getting lost or delayed in the mail.

I’m a new user to Cardly but I can tell we are going to be good mates. I love the designs, doodles & handwriting. The cards & concept are both 10/10. Also love the feature that you can set reminders for important dates such as birthdays & anniversaries.

    To see all the countries we ship to, please check out our full FAQ.

  • How long will it take for my card to be delivered?

    A card ordered before 10am Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) will ship the same day. Once in the post it will take the following estimated times to arrive:

    • Australia: 2 to 6 business days for regular post, or 1 to 3 business days for Express post.
    • New Zealand: 7 to 12 business days
    • UK: 1-2 business days
    • Europe: 3-5 business days
    • US: 2 to 4 business days, or 1 to 2 business days for Express post.
    • Canada: 2 to 5 business days
  • What can I personalise?

    With out powerful editor you can customise your writing style, how messy or neat the writing is and the colour and size of your text. You can also add extra message areas which have their own unique styling too, so you can add messages from other friends, family members of colleagues and have them look completely different to your own style.

    Couple that with the ability to add funny and cute doodles to your cards and you can create some amazing personalised cards without needing to lift a pen.

    We'll use the same writing style on the beautiful kraft envelope we send your card in too, so everything looks as authentic as possible - right down to the real stamp that goes on every envelope.

  • I need to get something delivered faster, help!

    Cards destined for recipients in the United States and Australia currently have the option of priority/express post at additional cost. As both of these countries cover a huge geographical distance it can take time for mail to be delivered all the way across a different coast.

    If your recipient qualifies for expedited postage you'll see the relevant cost when adding a card to your cart. In most cases this can bring the delivery times down to a couple of business days, rather than closer to a week as with standard mail.
