Shamefully I think my family will all be nodding their heads when I say that I have probably missed or been late with 95% of cards I have needed to send this year. Yes, that many. It’s true. Birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations – and I have still to get over the Christmas card hurdle. I need to change – I wasn’t like this before I had children. In fact, I was the opposite and for the entirety of our dating life, as we were long distance, I sent the mister a card every.single.day. That’s over 400 cards.
Still, I never would have even considered this a resolution were it not for coincidentally spotting a tweet about one of the loveliest companies I’ve ever had the pleasure of becoming involved with, Cardnest.
Their service is immaculate, perfect – and their customer service actually bought [happy] tears to my eyes with my Christmas delivery of cards. Their heartfelt and genuine intention in setting up Cardnest really struck a chord with me. Likes, favourites and blog comments are all very well and nice – but a card with a handwritten note can completely make your day…
It’s completely brilliant. For £7.50 a month [plus £1.86 for three stamps if you decide you’d actually like to send the card, which is fantastic because then you can be unlike me who seems to keep the written cards in my handbag, postage-free until they are no longer of use], you receive three individually designed cards which have seemed to meet my every need over the past three months – including a circus themed birthday card which has won me the place of Favourite Aunt with my niece [who is studying circus training].
The cards are just beautiful – so gorgeous that I actually kept one of the cards for myself. I can’t bear to part with it, I just can’t.
I honestly, truly cannot recommend Cardnest highly enough. They are the most warm and engaging people, trying to make our world a little friendlier…
