The more our communications are shifting online the more I believe in the importance of real, tangible things. There’s nothing quite like coming home to a card on the mat. It’s something small, but such a nice surprise, that will make a difference in someone’s day in the way that a text or message won’t. It’s nice to know that somebody went to the effort of choosing a card for you, writing it, addressing it, putting a stamp on it and putting it in the post. But even better than that is getting a card that is really “you”.

A handmade card says i thought about this in advance,  this was not a last minute panic buy! I'm guilty of putting in a little more time that I should sometimes because I  can imagine the reaction it will get. Sometimes you know exactly the kind of card you would love to give someone, even though you might never have seen it. I make custom orders  for this exact reason. Or maybe you would like to alter a design to make it that little bit more personal. I started making cards for my family and friends because there are only so many cards with boats you can give your dad, or cards with flowers for your mom. Often mass produced cards say things you don't want to say. That's why I keep text to a minimum, and the inside is left blank. A card should say what you want to say, not what someone else dreamed up for you to say.
