We've gotten into such a technology age that I'm not sure if I should keep sending birthday, anniversary, x-mas cards and such through the mail. My kids send me by text or email, my relatives and their friends do a lot of them that way and they do seem to be easier. I'm just not sure if it is right to just switch over to email cards and not paper ones.
I have found I am more apt to remember and send birthday or event cards if they are electronic. Paper cards need time to travel via snail mail. By then, I have missed my window of opportunity. Plus, some of the new animated cards and texts convey a visual message I can’t capture in a paper card. Be it funny, romantic, professional, or event specific, you can whip up an electronic card/text in minutes, personalize it, and make someone’s day special.
