It makes sense to send real cards online rather than e-cards for that more personal outreach, especially for the busy mom who has to balance home, kids, and a job; the executive who is carving his career; and the grad student who has to juggle studies with his part-time job. Postable, an online card site, allows you to send cards and have them delivered to the mailbox of the recipient, as it was done in the “olden” days, without the accompanying hassles. What is more, it lets the sender add personal touches to his message and bring back fond memories of those days before emails and e-cards came into prevalence.
Here are the reasons why it is convenient to send real cards online:
- You do not have to make the rounds of countless shops to find the perfect card design. Online card mailing services usually house an extensive and eclectic collection of greetings cards designed by some of the best independent artists in the country. There are cards in all sorts of designs—from those that bear classically elegant motifs to those that sport funky themes—and to suit every occasion. You can find a card to appeal to the tastes and sensibilities of the person you are sending it to. This spares you the trouble of trudging from one shop (the brick-and-mortar kind) to another looking for the perfect card.
- You can give your card the handwritten look. You can select a cursive font to print your message in. This will give your card that alluring handwritten look to bring back memories of those good old days when people actually had the time to pen their thoughts on paper.
- You do not have to address envelopes. Thank you card services, like Postable, gives you access to a free and secure online address book. You can share the URL of this address book with your acquaintances and loved ones and ask them to fill out their contact details, namely, their postal addresses. After you choose a card to send, all you will need to do is select the people you want to send your message to from the address book. You will thus be spared the hassle of addressing every envelope individually and take pains to make your writing legible for the mailman, which might be quite some task given that in this digital age, most of us use the keyboard more than we use the pen.
- Your card gets delivered within a short time. After you issue directions to send your cards, you can rest assured in the knowledge that they will be delivered to the recipients’ mailboxes in no time at all.
The Excuses are Dwindling
Postable makes it possible for you to send real online cards. They carry as much warmth and heartfelt thoughts as handwritten messages but require only a fraction of the effort that you need to physically search for and actually writing cards of this nature. Why waste gas money if you do not have to?
