First, take the time to think about what you want to say. A great message is personal and specific, so avoid just writing generic phrases like "happy birthday" or "thinking of you." Instead, try to write something that captures your relationship with the recipient and why you're thinking of them. Be sincere. Your message should be genuine and from the heart. resist the temptation to write something that you think the recipient wants to hear. They will appreciate your sincerity more than anything else.

Next, make sure your message is appropriate for the occasion. If it's a birthday card, keep the message light and celebratory. For a sympathy card, on the other hand, a more heartfelt messages is obviously more appropriate and a shared memory of the loved one can sometimes really help and bring a real sense of connection

Choose a card that not only reflects your personality and style but that will connect in some way to the recipient. There are so many amazing artists cards in our range, so take the time to find a card that you really love and of a location that will resonate with time before you buy and send a card to them.

Finally don't be afraid to step outside the box - a unique card and heartfelt message is sure to stand out and make a lasting positive impression and memory. That's the power of a well selected and well written greeting card, so make sure you send as many as you can during the year to keep in touch with family and loved ones.
