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.
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.
Custom greeting cards let your personality shine through unlike a generic card, custom greeting cards let you be yourself, instead of being someone elses version of yourself. A custom greeting card can showcase your playful attitude, your good taste in simple things, or your enthusiasm for a new project. Custom greeting cards also let you demonstrate that you know what your recipient would want in a new card: theyre not just something you pick up in one aisle of the grocery store - they are a unique way to express yourself.
I havent had the privilege of seeing even a picture of it, but there is a Valentine card made in the 1400s that is on display in a British Museum. The first Christmas Card was commissioned by Sir Henry Cole in 1843 where he had John Calcott Horsley paint a card for him centering around the feeding and clothing of the poor. Although he wasnt the first, Louis Prang is known as the Father of the American Christmas Card because prior to that we imported our greeting cards from England. Greeting cards were original fairly expensive because they were a handmade and hand delivered gift so they were mainly enjoyed and shared by the wealthy. By about the 1850s they became more affordable because of the advances in printing and postage rates were very reasonable.
