Greetings Cards, Send Them Just Because You Can...
Birthday’s are boring and Christmas is for cunts, so why be predictable and stick to the standard card giving holidays like everyone else, when you could break the mould and really surprise someone out of the blue with greetings cards? Isn’t that the point of cards anyway, to take you by surprise and let you know that someone actually cares?
It's short but not so sweet
Friends may send birthday cards, Christmas cards and anniversary cards (okay, maybe you have to be more than friends to send those), but best friends send cards just because they can.
Why leave it until a special occasion like your anniversary or Valentine’s Day to say, “I love you but I love the cat more”, when you could send your loved one a card at any time of the year and surprise them out of absolutely nowhere? Let’s face it, with a grand gesture like that, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get some. And speaking of getting some, how about ‘steak and blowjob’ day? Did you know you can send a card for that too?
From divorce and breaks ups, to simply being ginger, there are literally hundreds of reasons to show people that you’re thinking of them, and with our range of non occasional greeting cards, you’re bound to find the one to put a smile on your sibling/ friend / lover / doctor’s face.
There are lots of big life events that often get overlooked these days, like coming out as gay, or taking a really great Selfie, hmmmm, and lots of other little life events that should be marked in some way too. Even taking the piss out of your gym obsessed buddy is the perfect excuse to give your mate a card, just to let them know how well you know them, how vain they are and how much you care (plus, you’re bound to get a really good Christmas present after all the hard work you’ve put in to being such a great friend).
So whether you want to say something as meaningful as, “Just a little note to say I’m super fucking glad you’re gay”, or something a bit more punny like, “Too much protein? No whey mate!” it’s really easy to just send them a card and let them know that you care.
Realistically, even if you spend ages picking out a really great birthday card or Christmas card, it’s bound to get overlooked in the piles upon piles of greeting cards that get sent and received each year. As you hand it over you just know your friend is thinking “thanks for the card, but I’ve already got fifteen of the exact same one”, and they probably couldn’t even pick it out of a line-up. But never fear, this problem is easily solved; the only way to make sure that your card definitely stands out is to make sure that it’s the only one sitting on the mantelpiece.
With online messaging and smart phone apps like Facebook, Snapchat and WhatsApp, it’s easier than ever to send your mate a message on a special occasion, but it’s never been more difficult to make sure that that message is actually heard. That’s the beauty of a greetings card, it’s a sure fire way to get your point across, whilst looking like you’ve put a lot of effort in.
So whether you just want to keep your pal going, or you genuinely want to send them a heartfelt message, there’s no better or more memorable way to do it than send them one just because you can. Just remember: greetings cards are for every occasion, not just for Christmas.
