When was the last time you received a handwritten card? How about the last time you sent one? If you like the idea, but never seem to get around to it, then a handwritten card service may be exactly what you need.
Let’s face it, a quick text or shoutout on social media wishing a happy birthday just isn’t the same as opening the mailbox and finding a handwritten birthday card someone made the effort to mail.
It takes time to select the card, write the note, address it, and get it mailed. Knowing that someone cared enough about you to spend their time doing that can make you feel special even before you’ve read what they’ve written.
“In our throwaway era of quick phone calls, faxes, and email, it’s all too easy never to find the time to write letters. That’s a great pity—for historians and the rest of us.” —Nancy Reagan, The Letters
As a frequent traveler, it seems like I’m always gone during a loved one’s birthday or special occasion when I would typically like to send a card. Even though I try to remember to take a card and stamp with me, it doesn’t always get done. (I’m still carrying around a postcard in my purse from the last trip we went on and never found a mailbox to drop it in!)
If you find yourself full of good intentions, but lacking follow-through, you’ll appreciate knowing there are handwritten card services that solve this problem for you.
One service you’ll want to check out (and bookmark) is called Handwrytten. They offer everything from handwritten thank you cards to personalized holiday greeting cards. The process is very simple and the cost is quite reasonable.
If you send cards for business or you’re an entrepreneur, you can send multiple cards with the same text, making it so easy to accomplish this task. It’s your words, written with real pen and ink. It looks absolutely authentic and studies show mail addressed in real handwriting has an 80% open rate.
How does Handwrytten make their cards with real pen and ink? It’s simple. (Well, a lot of engineering went into it, but they make it look easy!) A machine holds an actual pen with actual ink and “writes” your message for you. That’s it!
No more putting off sending out thank you notes because you ran out of cards, or stamps, or time.
You can send cards in bulk or one at a time.
Their app makes it all so simple, you’ll wonder why you’re just now finding out about this service. With most cards starting at $3.25 plus postage, you can even add a gift card to be tucked in. You’ll have zero guilt for not having done it yourself. Why? Because you did think of it and took the effort to use a handwritten card service that prepares and sends it for you. That’s a win in my book!
Scoot on over and take a look at the handwritten cards online that Handwrytten has to offer. It’s time to level up your game and start following through on all your good intentions to reach out to people with personalized cards!
