Testimonials

Ciao Bella Tartan Wedding card at Color Wheel in McLean

How often do you attend a wedding in Scotland and find the perfect card thousands of miles away? Our customer saw our Ciao Bella "Tartan Wedding" card and described it to her daughter, who's traveling from her home in Asia to attend a wedding in Scotland. The daughter replied "Perfect!", so "Tartan Wedding" was sent from McLean to Asia, and will then travel to Scotland to adorn the wedding gift.

“This is the only place that my husband will come into to buy cards. There’s something about the intelligence of the cards here that he likes.” 

 “You have the best cards.  I buy ALL of my cards here, and have for the last five years. I particularly like Saturn Press.”
