5 Creative Reasons why Handwritten Greeting Cards are Still the Way to Go

Handwritten greeting cards have been around forever, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. They’re a great way to express your personality and creativity, and the recipient will always remember that you took the time to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) just for them. In fact, handwritten cards are an excellent way to tell someone how much they mean to you in a way that feels personal while still being professional. You might be wondering: Why should I bother writing out my own messages when there are so many pre-written options available online? The answer is simple: because there’s no better way! Here are five reasons (plus a bonus reason) why handwritten greetings will always be special:

They’re nostalgic.

Handwritten cards are a throwback to a time when people cared more about each other. They make you feel special and remind you of the days when your parents or grandparents would sit down and write you letters in their own handwriting. For many, these cards take them back to their childhood when they received birthday cards in the mail from family members who had taken care of them while they were growing up—a tradition that’s becoming less common nowadays.

Handwritten greeting cards smack of authenticity.

A handwritten note is a physical and tactile reminder of someone’s love for you or appreciation for your friendship. While it may seem like the digital age has made sending letters obsolete, nothing can replace the feeling that comes with opening an envelope filled with writing.

In addition to the personal touch, handwritten notes have a certain charm that is lost when they are typed out on a computer or printed from a printer. The act of handwriting your message shows that you put in the effort to write something meaningful and not just hit “send” on an email or text message.

Handwritten greeting cards express your personality.

The most obvious reason why handwritten cards are still the way to go is that they express your personality. People love to see their handwriting, and an old-fashioned card will show them something unique about you. Handwritten notes are a great way to show your personality because they can be funny or witty, sentimental or heartfelt, but always memorable. The best part is that no one else will have taken the time and effort it takes for you to write out a note on paper—you’ll stand out from everyone else in a crowd!

This personalization also applies if you choose to purchase one of our handmade cards from our shop—your friend will know that yours was made just for them because we didn’t print it on thousands of other sheets like some companies might do!

They feel intimate.

  • A handwritten card has a much greater impact on the recipient than a text or email.
  • Handwritten cards are more personal than text messages and emails.
  • The time you spend writing out your thoughts in hand will show the sender you care for them.

They show you care.

Handwritten greeting cards show that you care about the person receiving them. The act of taking time out of your day to write someone a note, sign it, and mail it shows them that they are special enough for you to take the time out of your busy schedule and make their day by sending them a personal message.

They also show that you care about yourself. If you are like most people then writing an email or text message is easier than writing a handwritten card because it saves time and money but while a quick text message saves time, it’s not as thoughtful or as purposeful.

For example, let’s say that my friend has moved across the country so I decided to send her a gift card for her favorite store so she can find clothes when she gets settled in her new home but instead of just putting it in an envelope with postage I make sure it’s addressed correctly (this means taking time). Then I put some thought into what I want to write on this gift before putting pen to paper (this means putting more thought into it). And then finally mailing my package off into the world hoping all goes well when she receives her gift surprise!

Handwritten greeting cards are still really special to receive!

Handwritten greeting cards are still really special to receive!

You can’t help but smile when you see a handwritten note from someone, especially if it’s not just any kind of card but an actual greeting card. There’s just something about hand-written messages that makes them more personal and unique and thoughtful than anything else you might get in the mail. Handwritten cards can make a great impression on whoever receives them, so they’re also more memorable in general.


I hope these reasons have made it abundantly clear that handwritten greeting cards are still an important part of our lives. They make us feel good when we receive them and they show that someone really cares about us and our relationship with them. If you’re looking for a way to express yourself in a more personal manner, then this is it!
