    Send a Card to a Friend Day 2018 | 7th February

    Through laughs and smiles, tears and frowns, right through life’s ups and downs friends help make us the people we are.

    Each of us has different types of friends, some as close as family and some although more distant or fleeting still shape our lives each any every day. From the girlfriend you have grown up with since you were twirling like ballerinas and making daisy chains to the friendly guy down the pub you chat with whenever you meet.

    In this digital age we are more accustomed to sending a text to congratulate a friend’s engagement or dropping an email to your colleague to say well done for your promotion. 100, heck even 50 years ago a handwritten card was common place. From thank you cards to love letters from your betrothed everything was hand written and preserved in time creating precious memories for years to come. The only thing our generation are used to receiving through the mail is bills, adverts and if you’re lucky a birthday card once a year. This writing apocalypse does not have to continue! Image the joy on your best friends face upon opening a hand written card from you letting her know exactly how much they mean to you.

    Let’s put down the phone, ditch the iPads and let someone close to you know just how much they mean to you.

    Crafty Ideas

    You don't have to be the Mary Berry of the handy craft world to send your friend something they can treasure. Just head down to your local card shop and see what you can pick up. Or if you are feeling crafty why not create a card including a collage of your favourite photos of the two of you or get out a sharpie and just start doodling.

    To celebrate this happy day we are offering a 15% discount on all of our calligraphy and correspondence sets. Simply head over to this section of our website and use the discount code CAL15 at the checkout for 15% off any item in this category.

    Struggling with the sentiment, here are some of our favourite quotes about friendship.
