Anyway. My friend, John, back in Orlando, was telling me about his new business, so I halfheartedly agreed to check it out. You know, that's what we do. Right?
I was surprised by what I found. I love sending letters and cards for real, but in this age of internets, I never buy stamps or get to the store anymore. This guy, with Send Out Cards, will let you choose a card, write a message, then he stuffs it in a real envelope, puts a real stamp on it and mails it!
So I set up an account. There's a cute little bald man on the screen that walked me through the process. It totally ROCKS!!!! I mean, you could totally do all your holiday cards this way! How awesome is that? I already have my Christmas cards ready to go (long story - don't ask), but I'm thinking next year it's a GO!!!
Promise a Smile dot com. I like it. I'll use it again. And I'll let you know when my friend receives her card, what she thinks of the quality. And content. Because I wrote her a long message. I could even have made my handwriting into a font! This is so cool.
Okay - here's the bottom line: I just sent a free card, but the actual cost, had I paid for it (and I WILL be a return customer) would have been 44 cents. With the stamp, I think. And there are hundreds of cards to choose from! Oh! Oh! Oh! And they'll let you put photos in the card! And send a gift with a card!
*sigh* Is it possible to be in love with a card company? I think so.
Until I write again ...
P.S. Honest to Pete - I get nothing from this. John's a good friend from "back home" and I had no idea what I was stepping into with this. I really am this excited about the cards. :)
