If you, like us, like to globetrot as much as possible, you may have found that sending handwritten notes and cards to your friends and family is tricky when you’re hundreds of miles away from them. While there are mail systems in place all over the world, it can be almost impossible to predict when a letter, note, or card will actually arrive, especially if it has a particularly long way to travel… and then there is also the danger that it will get lost!
Texts and emails always seem like a much easier option, but in reality, they almost always really lack the personal touch of a carefully handwritten birthday card, thank you note, or a handwritten token of appreciation! Thankfully, thanks to the wonders of technology, you can now find handwritten birthday card services, along with other brilliant solutions, all at the touch of just a few buttons.
How a handwritten birthday card service works
Picture this: you are on the go, a thousand miles away from a friend whose birthday is coming up. You’ve always sent them a handwritten birthday card before now, but this year you’ve left it too late to organise anything that would arrive in time, especially as you’re not sure exactly how long it would take your card to travel 1000 miles! You remember that handwritten card services exist, and that they ship worldwide, so all you need is an internet connection, a few dollars, and a couple of minutes!
All you need to do is find a handwritten card service of your choice online. Then you can browse from a wide selection of possible cards to find one that fits the occasion perfectly. Whether you need to send a birthday message, a message of sympathy, a big congratulations, or a note about something else, you’ll be able to find the perfect card.
Once you’ve made your selection, think carefully about your message and simply type it into the text box on your screen – don’t forget to double check for typos! You’ll have 500 characters to play with, which is plenty to get your message across. After your message has been written, you just need to select which font you’d like it to appear in. You’ll have lots to choose from, so there’s probably one available that’s a pretty close match to your own handwriting!
Next, all you need to do is type in your recipient’s address and pay for you card. After you’ve done this, you’ll receive a confirmation and the whole handwritten card process is complete! The whole process takes just a couple of minutes from beginning to end, which is much faster than going out to buy a card and a stamp, writing your card, then going out again to post it, whether you’re somewhere really far away, or in the next town from your card’s recipient.
We love how easy it is to send cards when we’re away from home, but there are many reasons to keep a handwritten birthday card service on your radar: it’s quick, super easy, perfect for if you can’t get out of the house for any reason, and wonderful for those times when you just can’t get to the shop to pick up a physical card!
