One of the pleasures of Christmas is the sending and receiving of hand written cards. They connect you to family and friends, and in a time of Tik Tok's, Instagram's and Facebook posts it is the perfect way to reach out to someone.
There are usually two things that put people off sending cards - the cost of posting them, and the time taken to write them.
Send Early, Send Second Class
The cost of a First Class stamp has rocketed in the past year, but the cost of second Class has remained unchanged in the last price increase. So this year we are encouraging everyone to post their Christmas Cards early and send them second class.
A second class stamp now costs just 75p, which is 50p cheaper then a first class stamp! A saving of £5.00 on postage if you sent a pack of our Christmas Card Multipacks to friends.
Royal Mail have the last date for posting 2nd Class as Monday 18th December 2023, but we would recommend sending them much earlier to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.
Writing Your Cards
We love sending cards, and we love Christmas! Which means we send a lot of cards each year.
It takes a good while to write them all, so we have started already. And to help you we've also have over 100 Christmas card messages that you can use for writing your cards if you're stuck for something to write to your family and friends. Writing all your cards in one night can sometimes be a bit daunting. We now put on a fave TV show (MasterChef The Professionals usually this time of year), make a lovely mug of tea or hot chocolate (ok sometimes a glass of sherry or wine), and write some cards. Doing a few regularly spreads it out and makes it feel less daunting.
Then we will drop them all off in the post ready for Delivery first week of December.
