SHOWING APPRECIATION WITH AN AUTHENTIC GREETING CARD
Have you received one of those electronic greeting cards? Not very impressive. Did you ever forget an important anniversary or birthday? Recently someone told me about this really cool company that makes it so simple to send an authentic greeting card; you will wonder why you didn’t hear about this a long time ago. We are all busy—and now I no longer have to go to the store, pick out a card, write a little note, look up the address, find a stamp, and walk out to the mail box. By the time I do all of that, I usually miss the date I am trying to recognize in the first place.
The great thing about this program, it is all Internet based. You can store each of your addresses and dates such as anniversaries and birthdays, plus you will be reminded when to send the card. You can choose from thousands of different cards–and if you are creative, there is a special feature to add your own personal photographs in the design process. Another really neat addition, this program will scan in your personal handwriting and signature so it looks like you actually handwrote the note and address on the envelope.
Just think of the impact a personal greeting card could have on your family, clients, staff, or employees. They even put it in the envelope, add a stamp, and take it to the post office for you—all for less than 75 cents per card including postage.
You can watch a video and even sign up for a free account to send out two cards by visiting this website.
