    I would go with the smaller size. Most generic bulk TY cards I see at the store (e.g. Hallmark, Papyrus) tend to be on the smaller side. It’s usually the one-off greeting cards that are bigger.

    Plus, I don’t know about you, but I always feel obligated to fill the entire area with text if it’s a TY card. As such, you either have to write larger or write more if you go with larger cards.

    I say smaller. Less space to fill means less obligation to write a novel in every one 🙂

    We did a photo collage and thereby wanted to make sure the photos were seen so we went with a 5×7. I loved the end results and we got a lot of compliments on our thank you cards. We ordered from shutterfly, if you buy a sample they will send a 20% coupon for your next purchase. We lucked out and ordered ours when they had a sale on cards too. Quality-wise, shuttefly was a little above average but would have been disappointed if we paid full price for them as a lot of our cards had a small white streak on the bottom. Maybe due to sticking together as we got the gloss finish?
