Do people still want to receive greeting cards these days?

It seems like most of society is more comfortable communicating with memes, GIFs and other digital photos and messages, so why should you invest in greeting cards this year? If you’re unsure whether to send custom greeting cards or go for a digital alternative, it’s time to explore the many advantages to sending a personalized, physical card for a number of traditional and spontaneous occasions.

A Personal Touch

Perhaps the biggest advantage to sending a physical card is the personal touch. Whether you have elegant, cursive handwriting or need to work to make your writing legible, taking the time to write a personal message or sign a card shows you care.

Unlike an email or other online greeting, a card shows a greater level of sincerity, thought and personalization. It takes seconds to snap a photo or send a popular GIF to a friend or acquaintance, but choosing, ordering, signing and delivering a custom card is still a very personal process.

Emotional Greetings

Custom cards have a greater range of emotions they are capable of displaying. Few digital cards are appropriate when offering condolences to a grieving loved one or celebrating marriage or birth. Custom greeting cards combine these emotionally appropriate messages with a handwritten or carefully typed message that can be cherished for years to come.

A Physical Reminder

Digital messages come and go. Few individuals take time to review messages from years past, even if they were thoughtful or meaningful. Mailing a physical card, however, gives your friends and family a message of encouragement, celebration, greetings or condolences that can be saved as a reminder. Whether cards are left on a mantle, stored in a shoe box or prominently displayed on a refrigerator, they are far easier to save for future generations than a simple digital message.

This feature makes custom cards a great option for invitations to special events. Whether you’re throwing a neighborhood party or inviting all your family out to see your new home, create invitations that are easy to keep around and use as reminders. Physical cards allow your loved ones to place them somewhere where they won’t forget your big event.

Traditional or Spontaneous

Once you embrace the idea of sending a physical card, there are many reasons to send a card. Choose one or more of these reasons to send a card to your friends and family this year:

  • Birthdays
  • Holidays
  • Weddings
  • New homes
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Job transitions
  • Spontaneous greetings
  • Stock up on cards by investing in bulk birthday cards or carefully select individual custom cards for loved ones in your life. From a single card to a series of meaningful messages, take time this year to find the best cards to communicate your feelings to people in your life.
