    There is so much lost sentiments with mailing since the email era.So much has gone virtual to save the "trees". Do many people still purchase and send greeting Cards?

      yes, I send them to my friends and I always send a thank you card to anyone who does anything nice for me or helps me out.
      I have a series of cat  and dog blank cards that a company bought the prints from me to use..I have a ton of them myself they gave me, I use them for any occassion..but I do buy special cards for special people on very special occassions....

      Normally, I send greeting cards at Christmas to all my relatives and friends and participate in Christmas Card swaps with the folks I play games or talk to in online forums. The more the merrier.I love the pictures and designs and the sentimental value of the written word.

      But, I have had a long year and I am giving myself a stress free holiday for Christmas. I am having a tea with the ladies at work and then I will stay home and write for Christmas. Most of my family is in retail. They work that day. So, I plan on making them snacks for them and their buddies at work and then making it comfortable for them when they come home.

    I tend to send out Happy New Year cards/letters.  I have more time after Christmas to make my cards.  And it's one less thing to do before Christmas.  And it helps stave off the after-holiday blues.

    Absolutely!  I love to collect unique cards and send them to family members.  A lost art, indeed.

    Definitely!  In fact I make most of my own cards these days.  People love to get a handwritten note in the mail, and not just at Christmas time.

    yes, to family members that live far away~~ emails don't cut it when it comes to the holidays. I still am thrilled to get a real letter in the mail. I received one the other day and it was typed on a typewriter!  Handwritten is even better.

    I guess I'm the first to admit I don't send them anymore.  As a result I don't get them anymore.  My list was so big that it weighed me down every year.  I keep close contact with those I am close to and it's almost a relief that we don't expect cards or gifts from each other anymore.  I do send friendship cards on impulse and Get Well cards as well as encouragment cards.

    heart4thewordposted 6 years ago

    Yes, I do, yet this last Christmas, things were really different, allot going on.  I have to confess I didn't get one Christmas card out.  Valentine's will be different, already have some cards made up, just have to address them.

    I believe you are right, about something is lost!  There is much to be said, about sending hand written, handpicked, and or handmade cards!  People know you took the time, and know you thought it out, purposed in your heart to care about them:)

    thegreenermeposted 6 years ago

    I do send some greeting cards, but I try to send ecards when I can. A lot of people think you're being cheap if you send ecards, so that makes it difficult to replace physical greeting cards -- no to mention emails have a much colder feel and aren't as personalized as a greeting card.

    I still make them! And I'm not talking clip art. I mean rubber stamping and the whole nine yards! Unfortunately I know a lot of my hard work has ended up in Waste Management's management...Not exactly how I planned it when I hand wrote over 50 handmade Christmas cards year after year...Oh well! Now I do try to send more E-Cards and the like...The worst that can happen is it gets spammed! LOL

    I send Greeting cards and also still love hanging the ones I recieve. I do think the postal service will be gone in 10 years, so no more mailing anything.

    Hi, guys.  I know this is pretty gauche to post here, but I wanted to throw it out there.  I have a greeting card company called Flytrap that has lots of sarcastic, high quality, nice graphics cards.  If you're looking for some new and different stuff, go have a look.  www.ShopFlytrap.com

    For my part, I do send cards out for birthdays, some anniversaries, and holidays.  Always holidays, and I include a letter that's humor-driven.

    Do you guys just send picture cards or do you include your own letters too?

    Purple Perlposted 5 years ago

    Greeting cards can be hung on the decorated Christmas tree,or around it. Cards can be displayed prominently to show how many you received on your birthdays and anniversaries.It feels special that all those well wishers are with you. Cards can never be replaced by e-cards. I love to send out as well as receive cards.

    DonnaCosmatoposted 5 years ago

    I feel like the odd man out in a way, but I prefer the multi-media aspect and the wide range of e-cards that I can find online. The recipients always seem to enjoy them (especially the ones with animations and music) and nobody has ever called me cheap (at least to my face)! However, I still use traditional cards to enclose with gifts and make them myself on the computer so I personalize them and dress them up.

    I do!

    I send musical and really big and colorful cards to kids smile I just feel that they can actually keep these cards as souvenirs.  Also, I play Santa and send them small notes, too.

    Still, I send e-card to adults.  Just to personalize the e-cards, I try to write well thought-out messages.

    Wilfionposted 5 years ago

    I have never sent an e-card to anyone, and doubt I ever will.  It is so much nicer to receive an envelope through the post, containing an attractive card, which the sender has written a message in by hand.  It is so much more personal than one sent by the click of a button.

    However, today, when I went into my hotmail, I discovered I had received my first ever e-card from a total stranger, in which they told me how madly in love with me they were.  How this can be, when I don't know them, and I doubt they can therefore know me.  There is some weird stuff in my inbox lately, most of it trying to advertise penis extensions.  I don't know what they've heard, but they shouldn't make assumptions.

    I still send greeting cards the old-fashioned way  for the holidays.  It is always nice to receive something in the mail other than bills.
