Save trees and money and scatter some joy with Jaquie Lawson e-cardsPosted by Fiona Nevile in Discoveries | 9 comments
I received my first Jaquie Lawson Christmas card seven years ago. It was one of her Chudleigh (black Labrador) cards. I was thrilled. Great animation and top marks on the feel good factor. Then I forgot all about them.
A couple of years ago an old friend started sending us Jaquie Lawson cards at Christmas and Easter. Margaret and her husband Tony had been our neighbours and had moved far away to Cumbria. Each card was a delightful reminder of an old and lasting friendship. There’s something very magical about these cards.
This Christmas we had two hours to find our address book and write our cards on the last posting day for Christmas. I finally located the address book after a panicky sweep through the storage boxes in the sitting room. In the hour that we had left, Danny wrote 4 cards and I managed the Olympian feat of writing and addressing 23. D was stunned but he was writing news whereas I was on a souless production line.
What would we do about the rest?
A quick trip to Jacquie Lawson’s site solved our problem in a flash. This site handles international membership. In the UK you can buy a one year subscription for £6.50 or two years for £9.50. You can send unlimited cards. You are able to link to your address book and dispatch cards to multiple addresses or just the one. There’s no advertising on the site or unwelcome popups.At the moment there are 124 cards available ranging from invitations to get well cards (these two categories ideally should not have a connection).
We solved our Christmas card problem, were able to send out some New Year’s cards and now can send a card in seconds. Without using paper, stamps or the postal service.
My big brother has an important birthday tomorrow. As he lives in New Zealand it’s already the momentus day for him. Happy Birthday, Mark. Hope that you liked the e-card. Pressies winging their way by snail air mail to feed your barbecue habit.
The card was sent in seconds. Jaquie Lawson is a great e-card website that’s well worth bookmarking.
