According to a dictionary, a greeting card is an illustrated and folded card featuring an expression of friendship and/or other sentiment. That description doesnt really show the thought or feeling behind giving or receiving a card. According to what I have found, the history of greeting cards goes back a long ways. The ancient Chinese exchanged messages of good will to celebrate their New Year and in early Egypt they sent greetings on papyrus scrolls. Papyrus scrolls were made from the Pith or the center of the Papyrus plant which use to be abundant in the Nile Delta of Egypt. The Germans were known to have printed New Years greetings from woodcuts as early as the 1400.
The same card that gave them the feeling of importance can be passed on to the next recipient. This is especially true around a busy time like Christmas. Some of the cards I received this year would be reusable when I send them out next year. Recycling eliminates the negative feelings associated with discarding greeting cards. If you knew the card would be reused wouldnt you be willing to spend a little more for the best card you could find. Rather than saving money on lower end cards your greeting card recipient would be impressed by your spending a little extra money on them. They would have great admiration of you and be appreciative of being able to extend the life of their greeting card. Now, what if your entire family or circle of friends agrees to exchange greeting cards in this reusable manor? You will have started a money saving, environmentally friendly tradition.
As mentioned above, technology has changed the way we give and receive greetings. From the simple form of a paper greeting card, folded in two with a simple message they have evolved all the way to the online e- cards. However, if you still want to go classic and purchase the paper greeting card you still have many choices. From sizes and shapes all the way to the very creative pop up greetings as well as the musical or recorded messages. The musical or record messages are extra amusing as either they come with a pre-recorded song to go along with the theme of the card that starts to play as soon as you open it, or you can actually record your own message instead of write it somewhere on the card.
Overall, greeting cards are a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them. They are a wonderful way to show your feelings and speak your mind without really saying a word, especially in those hard to find words moments where the card just speaks for you. You have many choices according to the occasion such as birthday and anniversary as well as a card for every holiday out there. There are cards for every occasion and every personality, so take advantage of them.
