Greeting cards, texting, or E-cards, which do you choose and why? In this digital era of instant messaging and E-everything, we might get carried away and forget the good old classic ways of expressing ourselves such as writing letters, sending postcards and greeting cards. While we may agree that digital is the quickest and most convenient way to convey a sentiment, there is something still classy about sending greeting cards through the mail, that makes it more unique. If you are still not convinced why you should snail mail that greeting card to your loved ones or employees, here is a brief insight into why they will always be better than a text or E-cards:
Greeting cards have a unique personal touch, as opposed to E-cards or texts, which in this day and age, are usually auto-sent and characterized by email, E-card or text blasting. Greeting cards are personalized and show that someone actually took the time to select it and address it to only you. They carry deeper heartfelt meaning to the recipient as compared to E-cards and texting.
As we all know, E-mails, E-cards and text messages are just indirect ways of expression. Greeting cards, on the other hand, are real and can be preserved as keepsakes or reused for future reference. They are tangible evidence that someone chose, to consciously express themselves through meticulously written words. As a matter of fact, the signature on the card is cherished just as much if not more, than the sentiment.
Makes the recipient feel special
There is no better joy than finding a brightly colored stationary filled envelope, in the ole mailbox among the bills, magazines, and bulk mail. It not only puts a smile on your face but also leaves a lasting impression that you are significant to the sender. Whether it is from a friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor or an employer, a greeting card is an assuring way to show someone how much one cares for another.
Builds more connection and friendship
Greeting cards bring with them positive emotions that make you feel connected to the sender. They are a sure way to strengthen relationships across cultural and other geographical boundaries since they are accepted across all borders. If you are an employer, sending greeting cards to your employees or clients creates a better connection with them, bringing forth motivation and trust respectively.
Greeting cards have been used for years since the Victorian era and continue to be, the most preferred communication tools to date. The best thing about greeting cards is that they are timeless and can be sent to people of all ages, and they will still leave the same impact.
All in all, the joy of receiving or sending greeting cards has that particular emotional gratitude that is irreplaceable. Additionally, this wonderful way to convey messages and express ourselves is accepted by all ages from toddlers to Centenarians, and should stay with us for generations to come. Whether you are an employer or would just like to express your sentiment to loved ones, think greeting cards first, to leave a lasting, classy impression.
