Say it with a Card…

You’d be forgiven for thinking that with the fall of Clinton Cards and the domination of the internet, that the sending of cards had been lost to a bygone era. But thankfully, you’d be wrong. Sending a card to loved ones is a British habit of good will that is thriving – more than ever we know that saying it with a scrawl means much more than electronic well wishing.

According to the BBC, 2011 year saw a 3% rise in card sales and although Clinton Cards has floundered, other chains such as Scribbler and Paperchase have flourished.

Our fellow beings cherish a personal message no matter how illegible the writing, silly the card or cheesy the sentiment. For many, it is truly the most heart-warming way to reach out to pals and parents alike. And we are spreading the cheer by sending cards on more occasions than ever before …from Chinese New Year to Halloween, Just Because to Divorce, there is no circumstance too irrelevant.

With such a wealth of hilarious, beautiful and charming cards on offer, let’s all say it with a scribble and put a smile on someone’s face.
