SEND FRIENDSHIP CARDS AS A THOUGHTFUL GESTURE
It doesn’t always have to be a birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or a special occasion to send a greeting card. Everyone loves to receive a surprise card in the mail, and oftentimes it’s mutually rewarding to compose and send “just because” cards. Minted’s collection of friend cards are the perfect solution to sporadically reminding a friend how much they mean to you. Whether they are located on the other side of the globe or down the street, a just because card will fill them with joy. And whether you just want to send positive vibes, say thanks, or share a joke, we have a design for you. We even have some greeting cards for friends that speak to social distancing.
THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO SEND JUST BECAUSE CARDS
You don’t have to have a reason to send friendship cards, but here are some examples of times when you might want to just send a friendly hello to someone you care about:
- Simple Thank You: Sometimes a more formal "thank you” card might not fit the occasion, and sending a note to say hello and how much you appreciate this friend will mean a lot.
- Remembering a Fond Memory: Imagine opening a card that recalls a special moment you shared together and why it’s still important to you now. This is the perfect reason to send a friend a note, reminding them of the good times you’ve had together and how much you still value them.
- Words of Encouragement: If you know a friend is going through a tough time with health issues, a sick parent, job loss, or breakup, it is nice to send a note saying “thinking of you”, and that you’re there for moral support. Knowing they are not alone is very valuable.
- Life Update: Maybe you are moving, ramping up at a new job, or adapting your life as a new mom. A little note updating your friend on new life experiences will be much appreciated.
- Miss You: Receiving a note out of the blue is the best! Reach out to a friend to say you miss them and are thinking about them. This will always brighten a friend’s day.
DIFFERENT FRIENDS CALL FOR DIFFERENT KINDS OF WISHES AND TONES
We all have different kinds of friends. From friends we goof around with to those we value their guidance in life. We also have professional friends we may turn to for career advice. We have a unique friendship card fit for all the different kinds of relationships you have. Use our filter at the top of the page to filter by tone. Here are a few options:
- Funny: Choose a lighthearted card like one with a fat cat on it that says “You’re purrfect for me” or a card featuring hand-drawn glasses of wine that reads, “Wine, nap, wine, repeat.”
- Quarantine Humor: Send a card that depicts an empty toilet paper roll and a roll of toilet paper holding hands that says “Friends like you are hard to find” or “This small card is actually a really big virtual hug.” Especially during a time when many of us are still socially distanced, receiving a card will mean a lot.
- Support: Reach out to a friend with encouraging words using a card that says “This isn’t a card, it’s a hug” or one that doesn’t have any words but shows two people holding hands.
- Heartfelt: Give your loved one the warm fuzzies with a card that says “You are my sunshine” or “I’m so glad you exist.” Whether you want to bring a tear to their eye or a smile to their face, we have got you covered!
PRINT PERSONALIZED MESSAGES ON YOUR GREETING CARD SELECTION
Minted’s cards are 5”x7” fold-over greeting cards with a beautiful design on the front of the card created by an independent artist. We then let you personalize the wishes and greeting that is printed on the inside of the card using our online tools. Or you can just order your card with the default greeting (or no greeting) and hand-write your own wishes. You can also customize the recipient addressing printed on the envelope for free. This will give your just because card the enhanced design touch it deserves. Lastly, understand that your custom-made card will be mailed directly to your address so you can hand-sign the card before it is dropped in the mail.
