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, but only when I care enough to send the very best.
yes. you'd be surprised how much people love getting those in the mail.
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....
I still send cards to my loved ones for holidays and birthdays, I spend a good 40 minutes in the card store reading all the cards. I enjoy it
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.
no stopped few years ago, now I send ones I write to charities in letter form, if that makes sense
Yeah, I donate to Amnesty and send their internet greeting thingy.
thingy's are the best
I am using hard letters with postage this year-except I feel so out of it I don't want to go to the post office. ahhh
yes to all my relatives and friends, I just sent them all last Monday already
Hey There Pretty! What happened to your Steelers hat?? You looked so cute in it . .
Happy Thanksgiving to you . hope it was a great one. . .and you sent your holiday cards out already . .WoW! You are organized and amzazing .. I make mine so I am not even close to getting a stamp on them!
LOL< yes I missed that photo cant find it because I changed my avatar yesterday too, I need to send cards already because mail is very slow in December, it is cheaper to send now, i sent thirty of them, relatives in the Philippines LOL<
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.
I send a few; to my sister and family, to my cousin and family. Only to people who live far away.
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.
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:)
yes i do just few days back on new year i have send so many cards from http://www.ruvacards.com/
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 do! I've been obsessed with those singing and musical cards Im kind of a dork though..
yes .... in Indonesia. cards are still widely used. it was very polite than using email
Yes I do send cards...Some purchased, some made on my computer..I love to receive them too...last christmas I had about 40 cards on my mantle and hoosier cabinet.
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
Yes, usually I bought them though to save time It's better than sending emails.
Thanks folks! You gave a nice idea about greeting cards trending. I am concern because I run an ecard website www.DGreetings.com
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?
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.
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 send musical and really big and colorful cards to kids 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.
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.
after i am go to the university ,i never send greeting card ,we use message insteaded , but i miss the days that we send greeting cards ,very fun and we write the best wishes and then sent they to your friends .they will sent one back to us . I remember it was my birthday that my friends sent greeting cards to me ,beautiful and chic . i have they into my case .cherry it .
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.
Christmas cards or Holiday cards whatever your preference, absolutely do I send them! Email has become too impersonal and face it, when someone passes an email is just not the same as holding the last card they sent. I tie out the year always by sending Christmas cards, and for many on my list it might be the only time we connect. Postage has gone crazy, but if get you cards on sale and start early and do them throughout the year addressing them and labeling, stuffing that "dreaded" form Christmas letter, well thats the frosting on the cake. And I do put little personal notes that are hand written as well.

More and more people are sending greetings online via email or using electronic cards or social media pages or even mobile phones. Have you stopped sending cards the old fashioned way?

Do you still mail out Christmas cards? I prefer to send E-cards.
by Wasteless Project 5 years ago
Do you sometimes miss snail-mail, such as postcards, greeting cards and hand-written letters?Don't you think these non digital messages were much more charming than our modern e-greeting cards? While I am all for saving paper I think this might be the wrong end to start saving on...
