    Do you ever send paper cards through the mail?

    It can be so special to get a card in the mail anymore.  Do you still send cards through the postal service?  What are you thoughts on paper vs email vs nothing at all.

    Sometimes I send e-cards for birthdays, but for my parents or really close friends who live far away, I usually send a real card in the mail. I know how it feels to get a card you can hold in your hands.

    I also think that Thank You cards are appropriate to send through the mail. I have friends who have mailed me thank you cards after a baby shower, for instance. I think that sending a paper card takes an extra step and really shows that you took the effort to remember this special person in your life.

    Yes.  Greetings cards and personal letters are a waste of space via email.

    I still send birthday and Christmas cards but that really is about all, with the price of stamps due to rise I may even switch to e-cards from now on.

    Sometimes I use ecards but for special people in my life or special occasions, I send the real thing.  We still send out Christmas cards each year.

    Yes I still send cards through the mail. Reading a birthday or Christmas card is like reading a book.

    I don't remember when was the last time I sent a paper card through the mail. Paper cards, sure, do have its own charm and appeal. I seriously would love to get one or even a handwritten letter for the matter of fact. It's special. Emails are efficient, fast, and very convenient but a physical paper card, letter is something special.

    i think the paper card is better then the e card because the paper card will have your really special attention and you are actually showing the care and love fo the other person instead of the e car d actually
