Do You Still Buy Cards and Post Cards?

I still buy and send out cards to people for certain things. Like birthdays, some holidays and anniversaries. I just think it’s more personal to send a card in the mail. Plus, I have a friend in Florida, and we send each other postcards. It’s just something that I still like to do.

@Susan2015 I do. Every birthday and Christmas I will buy cards to give to the person or send them out. I think it's a nice thing to do. I love receiving cards too.

I had not used a postcard for years until I began sending a few to Mylot members. As for greetings cards, I usually make my own on the computer.

I still send cards when there is an occasion. Just last week I sent my sister-in-law and her husband, 2 nieces and a nephew each a sympathy card as my brother-in-law's mother passed away. I'll send anniversary and birthday cards also.....when I remember to!

You may be called old fashion but I think people appreciate it more because you took the extra time and effort compared to just using the e-mail or Facebook.

I'd do that if I have a friend to write to. I think nothing beats a hand-written letter.

I haven't sent post cards in years, but I still send birthday and get well cards...usually make my own. I don't send Christmas cards anymore, though.
