Cards are a simple way to share a token of appreciation or give recognition to those who deserve it. If it weren’t for greeting cards, certain holidays may not even exist. Care to imagine a world without Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Valentine’s Day? And that’s just the beginning. Not only are there different cards for the different holidays, there are also different genres of each greeting card for each holiday. Humorous, romantic, spiritual, etc., the list goes on and on.
With such a large selection, greeting cards should be easy to to find. Selecting a greeting card that best fits your personality and describes the message you want it to, however, isn’t that easy.
Many times, a greeting card doesn’t always capture the passion or appreciation you have for whom ever you wish to share it with. In these cases, personalized cards are sometimes the best option. That being said, while the best words come from the heart, a card can do a great job of helping you get the RIGHT words from the heart. Adding in personal pictures can also help make a card a memory, and not just words. Considering how many people reply “nothing” when asked what they want as a gift for an upcoming holiday, sometimes the right greeting card can go a long way towards being the perfect gift.
Nowadays, it’s easy to find printable greeting card templates that allow you to write a personalized message. Personalized greeting cards allow you to create your own Hallmark moment with a sentimental picture and a few words that describe exactly how you feel. If you decide to use a online resource of personalized cards, some templates will allow users to upload a personal image straight from Facebook or your computer. Other e-card sites allow you to email cards to the recipient which include videos or music to help set the mood of your message. Some e-cards offer different types of animation plus a section for your personal message. My favorite e-cards come around Christmas time from a website called Elf Yourself (If you are looking for a good laugh – I’m talking’ laughing to tears – check it out!)
If you lack creativity like me, some of the template greeting cards you can find online even come with a pre-written message which you can use. Talk about taking the words right out of your mouth!
