5. PaperSpring

Another great find! A beautiful website with lots of great products besides their holiday photo cards, we are particularly fond of their digital name art! But that is another post. They offer a recycled paper for their card printing for our eco-friendly readers and they also offer a "sticky stock" option that turns your card into a post it like paper so it can hang anywhere!
