I have an ever expanding family. Six brothers and sisters, their partners, their children, my friends….and so the list goes on! So it is no wonder that as it gets bigger, I start to lose track or when a special occasion happens. This is where the fabulous new service from CardNest comes in.
By signing up to a monthly subscription you need worry no more. Every month you receive a selection of 3 beautiful cards which are delivered to your door. Even better, you can also include postage stamps in your subscription which are charged at face value (CardNest do not pull in any extras on those).
The cards you receive from CardNest are totally exclusive to them. They have their own artists who design the cards which are sent in your pack. And, if you love the design, CardNest are shortly going to be launching an online shop for their subscribers in order for them to buy more of the ones they love for the ones they love.
When CardNest asked me to review their service I have to admit to being a little bit sceptical at first. What could they offer that any other card service couldn’t? Well, after receiving my first two packs, I am convinced. I love their stylish cards, convenient service and, I have to agree with their mission statement:
“Recognising a friend’s handwriting on an envelope is far more personal than an email subject line. We want people to keep in touch, not struggle to keep on top of notifications.”
Oli Gosling, co-founder
My Mum regularly sends Grace things through the post and, as a child, I can remember that nothing was more exciting than seeing a handwritten envelope arrive through my letter box addressed to me. I have to admit to still feeling that way now! The more unexpected the better as well because, as CardNest show with the range you get, it doesn’t just have to be a birthday. It could be a ‘thinking of you’, ‘best wishes’ or ‘congratulations’ card. All because of the convenience of a monthly subscription.
Sending a handwritten card to someone we care about can really make their day and recognising someone’s handwriting on the envelope when you receive a card is far more heartfelt than an email subject line! As well as those handy greetings, CardNest also delivers cards that aren’t occasion specific to help you keep in touch with the extra special people in your life. Whether you want to just say ‘hello’, tell a loved one you miss them or invite them for the weekend, it’s up to you. Read more about their mission.
