Many may think that greeting cards and handwritten letters are already outdated. After all, who still sends or receives a physical card and letter in their mailbox in this age of instant communication?
Although we live in a digital age, technology is still unable to replace every single thing in our lives – and it shouldn’t! Sure, sending holiday cards can be done via email now. However, an electronic video of a dancing cat in a Christmas hat doesn’t convey the same feeling as a physical card.
If your purpose of sending holiday cards is to expand your network, it is best to go for a physical card. These cards are able to express more emotional meanings and give off a personal feeling to their recipients. Whether it is for people you met at job interviews or meetings, you need to know how to make a card that is appropriate for them.
Holidays are the best times to give and check up on your family members across the country or even the globe! If you are thinking about what kind of card you want to send to your family members, here are some of our tips to really up your card game!
Add a picture
The best cards are the ones with pictures, of course! Whether it’s of you and your lover, you and your family, friends, or even of your cat, it’ll be a huge hit! It’ll also be a great way to show your grandma how much you’ve grown. Snap a quick picture and slip it into your card after you write your message, sign it, and mail it off!
The best things in life always come as a surprise, and the best gifts are always the most thoughtful ones.
With the advancement of today’s technology, it is now easier to convey your feelings to a loved one. Whether it is your sincerest apology, your deepest gratitude, most heartfelt congratulations, or your wishful “get well soon,” many other greetings can be expressed digitally on special occasions.
Traditional greetings such as handwritten cards have become passe in the face of the big bright screen that dominates people’s daily horizons. It is so much easier to type a few words onto a friend’s social media wall to greet her a happy birthday. Furthermore, the ease with which we can communicate online encouraged an epidemic of shorter attention spans. The present average attention span is shockingly only eight seconds long, much shorter than the memory of a goldfish! Cards and letters have given way to cryptic tweets, texts, and wall posts that are much faster to read. But all of these does our brains a disservice as it makes it unable to exercise rigorously as it should.
