It’s a new world when it comes to greeting cards. Etiquette writers put forth their opinion on whether we should send e-cards or paper cards. Paper cards come in video and audio options along with all the standards. Do we send a thank you card to close family members or call them? How do we keep up all of the cards and important dates, anyway? I’ve got three quick tips that might help you keep your greeting card process in order and save you time! Watch next time for three more quick greeting card tips.
• Ask yourself if you would rather receive a greeting card in the mail or online. Use your own response as a way to gauge what you should do for others.
• Trite expressions have a basis in truth. Case in point: “It’s the thought that counts.” Truly, you don’t have to spend $5 on an audio card for each person on your list. If you are sending paper cards, then pick one that is as appropriate as you can and then write a note in it to personalize it.
• There are tons of online e-card applications, so look for ones you like. I like www.sendoutcards.com/parislove. Try www.americangreetings.com, www.hallmark.com and www.bluemontain.com for free e-cards, and take a look at www.jibjab.com if you like to send those humorous messages.
Until next time…
