Is anyone still a card sender? I know I still love to send friends and family cards. Not many but I have a list of about 10 or 12 I usually send cards to. I know I like to receive them in the mail, although I often send more than I receive. Lol What about you? Are you still an old fashioned card sender around the holidays? When do you typically get them in the mail? I really want to send mone but it feels too early yet. What do you think?

This is similar to me. I make the cards on my computer and printer.

Do you receive any in the mail? They do seem like they are becoming a thing of the past.

I don't send them very often, only if someone sends me one.

Yes thats also true. I usually dont receive many but send them to my close friends. When do you think its appropriate to send them out?

i think we stopped a few years back because it took a really long time for the card to arrive to the receiver

We normally do a bunch of cards, maybe 20.. but that's between hand given and mailing. This year we have 21 to send, and about 15 -20 to hand give. But the mailing ones this year is because I have 4 friends i met online a few years ago that we now send to every year, and now have 8-10 people who i met here this year im sending to.

@maezee this week because they are only for European countries. I stop sending cards to Pinas as they don't arrive. My experience.

I used to send them no matter if others sent me one but now I only send to those who like to exchange this way. I know some like to send virtual cards but for me, those are not personable.

I tend to agree with you for sure.
