So many occasions, so little time for greeting cards!
You’ve got your Birthdays, Holidays, Thank You’s, and a ton of other greeting cards for events that happen throughout the year. Let’s face it: Greeting cards are used for almost every special occasion, and it will continue like that for a long time. With all of these occasions, it may seem easier to spend a few minutes searching online and sending greeting cards through the internet, but is that really the best choice? Sure, they’re quick and easy, but they also have a tendency to remove the personal touch that comes with each tangible greeting card.
Greeting cards are a great opportunity for us to take a few minutes out of our day to show the people in our lives that we care about them. Even if it’s only writing a few words, or drawing a little something special to remind someone of a memorable moment, taking the time to make something meaningful is what it’s all about.
Here are a few great ways that you can make your cards personal again:
Draw a doodle:
Do something that reminds your card-reader of a special memory. You don’t have to be great sketch artist or doodler, just give it a shot! Trust us, they’ll be happier that you thought of something special.
Customize your entire greeting card:
For the extremely courageous, try going all-out with one of your own personal greeting cards this year.
Write a personal note:
Cards already do a great job of summarizing our feelings, but they don’t say everything. Even if it’s only a couple words, be sure to write something personal and spend some time doing it. You never know how long that person may hold on to that special card.
