Why do blank cards exist


Some people have no idea why blank greeting cards exist. They often walk into a store, open the card and find it blank; they instantly drop this card and look for one which has some words written inside. But there is a reason why blank greeting cards exist and they include the following:

  1. A blank greeting card is more versatile than a regular card with words already printed. Because the card is blank, you are at liberty to convert it into any type of greeting. For example, you may want to wish someone a happy birthday, a happy anniversary, or get well wishes or you can send several different greetings on the same card. With a printed card, the words embedded already are designated for only one greeting.
  2. You can add greetings to several other recipients on the same blank card, something which is not always easy to do with a printed card because the words are already directed specifically for one person
  3. If you love to write, then a blank card is preferable. Many recipients prefer cards with a long message as it has personal meaning. With printed cards, there usually is not enough FREE space to add any extra words. A blank card provides you with ample room to write any type of greeting message
  4. You are at liberty to send whatever message you like to the recipient with a blank greeting card. You can use the blank card as a postcard, create a photomontage, compose a poem or make a collage.
  5. Finally, with a blank card, you can add your personal touch. You can use whatever font or color you like in the text. The size of the letters can be varied and you can even add a loving ‘Kiss’ to the card.


If you are going to be selecting a blank greeting card, select your words carefully- because it is your writing that will make the greeting special and personal. While it is easy to stick a funny image on the card, your words generally impart more meaning for the recipient- by reading only the first few words, the recipient will already know who the card is from without even looking at the bottom for the name. In general, a blank greeting card is best for family and close friends; blank cards are usually not recommended for business acquaintances because selecting the right words to send a message to your boss/manager can be difficult and you surely do not want to mix personal feelings with business colleagues.

Irrespective of the type of blank greeting card you select, use the right font to make it legible and do not make it into a mini-book. Just add in the right amount of words. A great tip is to always write the message on scrap paper first before you write on the card; proof it to make sure it reads well; there is nothing worse than having typos or grammar mistakes all over the place.
