Handwritten Greeting Card Service

Handwritten Greeting cards banner


Every greeting card (individual cards, not boxed cards) on our website has the option to add a handwritten personalized message, written with care by yours truly. We charge $2 for this service, and here’s what you need to know:

  1. First of all, a note to our European customers: untracked lettermail is not fast. Don't expect your card to get across the country in a day or two. The standard is 2-3 business days locally and up to 6-8 business days nationally (not including weekends). Heavy volume can cause delays around holidays.
  2. Find your perfect greeting card and select the ‘Yes’ option that appears under ‘Would you like a handwritten message in this card?’
  3. Enter your information in the boxes that appear. You will see a box for the recipient's address, but you don't need to fill this out unless it's a different address from the shipping address you will enter upon check out.
  4. You can include a handwritten card as part of any order, so if you’re sending a gift, this service is the perfect way to send a personalized card too! Just make sure the shipping address on your order is the address you want the whole order sent to. If you enter one address for the card and a different address as the shipping address upon checkout, we will split your order up and send it out accordingly.
  5. If you change your mind about which card you'd like, be sure to remove both the old card and the handwritten message service from your cart. Then you can start again with a new card – you will need to enter your message again as well.
  6. The return address on the envelope will be us, and we write 'From: your name' on the back of the envelope. This is to make sure it's not mistaken for junk mail and to make sure it gets returned to us in case of an incorrect address (which happens sometimes so please proofread and make sure to include a unit number if necessary).
