I ordered some post cards from ink garden for Save the Dates. I didn't see any templates that I liked so I used their "Design your own" features. The design tools were a little difficult to use as they often took a while to load and didn't allow you to change colors or borders as much as I'd like. It was also difficult to center the text in a text box or center the text box on the card.
Once I figured out the design of the Save the Dates, ordering was very simple and easy. My only complaint about ordering was that if you want to order more than 100, you have to jump all the way up to 200. There is no ordering 150.
The Save the Date postcards looked great when I received them in the mail. The picture quality was great! The pictures got smudged quite a bit in the mail, but for the most part they held up.
Overall, I would say InkGarden was great for our purposes, which was to send out some cheap but nice looking Save the Dates.

I haven't tried any of Ink Garden's other products, but I did order some mugs. The design looked crisp on the website when I reviewed it, but once I received them in the mail, they were extremely blurry and mottled images. Even the text on the mugs were blurry. I had to go through a time consuming process to prove this. First I sent them a picture of the mugs, but they said they couldn't tell from the photos and asked me to mail two of the mugs back to them for review. I didn't get a response back for nearly 3 weeks. In fact, I had to email them to ask about where we stood on the mugs. They emailed me back with this:
Thank you for contacting Ink Garden. We did receive the mugs back yesterday. We contacted production about your order. Your design will not look exactly like what you see on a piece of paper or the computer screen. We use sublimation printing, which turns the ink to a gas. The design is not exact but they are pretty clear. Our production will not be able to print these mugs any clearer.
If you would like to keep the mugs. We can return the 2 mugs to you. If you would like a refund, please return the rest of the order to us, and we can issue a refund. We have attached a postage paid label to this email.
Ink Garden Customer Service
It is my belief that they should state that on their website. I will be returning the mugs and am thankful that they will refund my money, but they DEFINITELY make you work for it!

I ordered some basic white coffee mugs. Some of the print is crooked and the template to line up the text with the mug handles to create an online proof is not accurate, therefore I received a product that is sub-par.

I just needed a gift. A gift for my mother. And I couldn't really find anything I wanted...until I got to InkGarden. InkGarden had what I needed (which was the custom coffee travel mug). Everywhere else, the customization process was not very good. Noone had what I was looking for until i cam across the product sold on this website. They had all the picture designs I needed and the personalization of the mug (pictures, layout, text, etc). I'll definitely be shopping online there again.

I ordered 8 grocery bags for different family members. The sticker that you place on the bags with the order info does not come off easily and leave a sticky residue.
If the stickers had been placed on the inside of the bag this would not have been an issue and o would have give five Stars.

I bought a Groupon and the interface was very easy to use and the journal shipped right away. The end product was high-quality and beautiful, I've already received a lot of compliments.
Review by Lakaiya4 years ago
That's what the recipient of my thank-you gift, a tall mug with photo and persoanlized message, said. The gift was delivered just eight days, which included a holiday weekend, after I ordered it. I could not be more pleased with the product or the service. I will definitely be ordering from InkGarden again!

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I ordered a personalized journal for my mom for Mother's Day, but what I received was outstanding! The outside cover is made of a tough plastic and very durable. It also looked exactly as I designed it. I couldn't wait to give it to her. I loved it so much I bought and designed a second one for myself.

The journals arrived very quickly and turned out even better than I expected

I have ordered from Inkgarden several times and have been astonished at the exception quality of the products and clarity of the photos I uploaded. The prices are more than reasonable and the shipping is super fast! What more could you ask for?

I personalized a mug for mothers day & my mom loved it, the pictures & letters came out flawless! You cant go wrong when you use this site, I recommend it a full 110%
Review by Sacri4 years ago
I was thrilled with the quality and look of the journals. I print my photography on these and sell them as part of my business. The calendar inside the front and back covers is a plus. The mouse pads look awesome-but the edges on the screen are not the same as the final cut-version I received. They are off by 1/4" so my photography watermark shows on them and I did not want it too. The business card magnets were a big disappointment. They are so thin that they barely hold their own weight on the fridge. I like how the photo looks on them but they are a bit useless. Oh well- live and learn. I will continue to order from this company and try some of their other products.

I designed a personalized coffee cup on Inkgarden.com as a gift and found their website was easy to navigate and had a wonderful variety of choices and templates. The cup arrived safely packaged and on time AND the photograph, background and quote that I choose to upload and add to the cup was amazing and exactly as I had hoped it would be! The quality was excellent! The price was very affordable and I highly recommended Inkgarden.com! I was very happy with my experience with this company and it is refreshing to have an affordable price without compromising the quality of a product. Inkgarden.com is awesome!

My first time printing a poster from Inkgarden. Was not sure what to expect but I figured I give them a try and did not regret it. Received my order when they say I would and my poste was package much better than other places that I've order from. Very satisfied will definitely be a returning customer.

Fast, good quality. One suggestion: I had a hard time rotating my photos when designing my poster. Maybe this could be made easier?

Love my magnet. Will be ordering again.
Review by Jaimme4 years ago
I was really impressed w/the quality of the pillow case I received & the clarity of the picture I chose for it. I got it for my grandson's birthday. Both he & his mom really liked it. I think I'll be ordering more for the other grand kids for Christmas.

Review by Heajun Nham4 years ago
I was able to design the bookmarks I wanted, including graphics and font. This is a big deal! That said, a few small complaints: the screen colors are brighter and clearer than the colors on the product. Use less white and black when arriving at your background colors. Phone customer service is excellent. On-line trouble-shooting service is slooow and doesn't seem to understand the problems without lots of explanation. Nonetheless, I would use this engine again.
Review by Jesule Noke4 years ago
It doesn't give you a preview!! They way it has you personalize the mug, it made me think that the background was going to be what I had picked, GRAY, not white. If I had the option to preview it I might had picked another website.
