One of the best ways to stay connected with good friends is to remember special occasions that you share with them. Shared experiences create lasting friendships and remembering these experiences strengthens the relationship. You may have been with them on their wedding day or shared a unique event with them. Either way, simply remembering the day is a great way to show your appreciation for them. An anniversary greeting card mailed to them is a good way to mark the event as special. In this article, we discuss a few methods for remembering anniversaries as well as the advantages of a turn-key anniversary card reminder and mailing service. Unfortunately, anniversaries are easy to forget. Luckily, anniversary card reminders can help you stay alerted to the upcoming anniversary. Here are some ideas to help you remember anniversaries.
- Use a large wall calendar to remember special events. Write the reminder for the anniversary reminder in the square corresponding to the date. Place the calendar near the door or other high-traffic area so you get frequent anniversary card reminders as you pass.
- Add the anniversaries to your Yahoo, Google or mailing service account. These services send email anniversary card reminders before the event.
- A mailing service sends email anniversary reminders as well as mailing ready-to-go anniversary cards to you.
If you don’t have a lot of time to shop for anniversary greeting cards, consider a turn-key greeting card mailing service. At least one service not only sends anniversary greeting card email reminders before the occasion, it also sends the actual greeting card to you in a pre-addressed and pre-stamped envelope. This is a monthly subscription service that costs about the same amount you would normally spend buying the birthday or anniversary greeting card. Since the card is mailed to you first, you can customize the anniversary card with your own special message. Once you are signed up, creating an anniversary card reminder is fairly simple.
Typically, each greeting card mailing service subscriber has their own calendar for creating birthday reminders, anniversary reminders, and other special occasion reminders. Simply click on the anniversary date to open a dialog box where you name the event and choose birthday, anniversary, etc. If you want to send a greeting card, check that option and then select the mailing address of your friend or add a new mailing address. These addresses are used to create the mailing label that is on the pre-addressed and pre-stamped envelope.
Then select whether you would like an emailed anniversary card reminder for 1 day or 1 week before the anniversary. This anniversary reminder will allow you time to make plans to celebrate the anniversary or shop for a gift if desired. In summary, use anniversary card reminders and the resulting anniversary greeting cards to stay connected with friends and family. But be careful because you may soon get a reputation as being the “most thoughtful person I know“!
