I'll be honest right up front, I am so bad at sending people cards for events. As a kid my aunt always had to remind me to send "thank you" cards. Sending cards is just never something I think of doing unless I already have the card at my house. There are so many events that happen in someone's life that people expect to send of receive a card for including birthdays, anniversaries, thank you's, holidays and more. If you're like me, you want the easiest, most convenient way to send a card to someone. Keep reading to find out the best way to send the perfect thank you card.
Can I send a handwritten letter online?
Yes! You can send handwritten letters and cards using the website Handwrytten. With this thank you card service, you can send many types of cards to over 180 countries around the world. Handwrytten is a fast an easy to use service so you can send out cards to anyone at anytime. They're super fast and typically take only one business day to create and send out your order and are received by the recipient within 2-5 days.
Why are handwritten letters better?
I think handwritten letters on cards are better because it shows the recipient you care and took the time out to send a personalized note. You can do the same thing in a card you get at the store, but if you're looking for convenience then sending them online is the best way to send a card. As a busy mom of two toddlers that works full time as well, sometimes I forget to pick up a card until the last minute and even then I might not have time.
How does Handwrytten work?
All you need to do to start is go to the website, create an account, and you can start sending cards right away. After looking through their catalog of cards you'll choose your favorite. You can send single cards or bulk cards which make it easy if you're sending cards out after a baby shower and you don't have the energy or time to handwrite and send out 50 cards to all of your relatives and friends. Next, you'll choose your favorite font and all fonts are made to look like they're written by hand, as opposed to typed. You can write in your message up to 500 characters. All you need to do after that is preview the card, put in return and recipients' addresses and it's time to send off your card.
Not only can you send a card that looks like it's 100% written by you, you can also send gift cards through the website to be included with the card. They offer over 15+ gift cards to different stores and restaurants, which is perfect for last minute sending!
How much does it cost?
Cards start at $3.25 and go up from there for a single card. If you're planning to send out bulk cards then the price is lower per card based on how many you're sending out. If you're someone who sends out multiple cards per month frequently (one of my best friends is a card sender for every occasion!) then the subscription plan might be a good option for you, which starts at $35 per month for 10 cards.
Overall, using this service is extremely convenient and will save you a lot of time. I've used this service in the past to send out cards when I knew I wouldn't have time to go out and buy one before I needed it to be sent out. The cards are great quality and feel just as personal as picking one up at the store and sending it out yourself.
