30 Greeting Cards I Wish I Had Sent

September 9, 2012

Greeting cards offer the most personal touch when you’re sending well-wishes, invitations and even marketing pitches.  That being said, I find most greeting cards exceedingly lame.  It’s not that they’re not appreciated; it’s that they’re all so much alike.  Unique greeting cards demonstrate that you took the time to send the perfect sentiment to your recipient, and that can go a long way toward building relationships.  I wish all greeting cards had as much gusto as the following 30 examples, each of which I wish I had sent to my friends, family and clients.
