Did you know that 87% of Canadians believe paper greeting cards sent via post are more meaningful than e-cards or other forms of online messaging? This February, Vancouver’s joyful new start-up JustGreet.com (and their adorable hedgehog mascot Amelia) will be helping those across the country exchange paper valentines. JustGreet’s co-founder and greeting card enthusiast, Mark Proudfoot, echoes these sentiments and encourages Canadians to celebrate love and friendship by giving a card and creating real experiences.
For $5/card + postage, JustGreet will mail for you a high-quality, locally-designed greeting card with complimentary gifts from Vancouver-based brands. The start-up blends the traditional charm of paper-based art with the convenience of online shopping. Buying a Valentine’s Day card at JustGreet.com is simple and fun. Guests select and customize their card with a personal message and add the recipient’s address.
Every greeting card is $5 + postage, and your message is written by hand by Just Greet. Each card is printed on 100% recycled paper and designed by independent Canadian artists.
And that’s not all – when you send a card through Just Greet, your lucky recipient will also receive a Vancouver-based deal or gift. Currently, some of the offers available include: a complimentary class or sauna session at YYoga, a free 16oz tea or coffee at Murchie’s, and a complimentary 20 minute leg and foot massage from Squeeze Nail Bar.
For delivery by Valentine’s Day within Canada, the deadline is to submit your order is February 10. Read on for The 4C’s to selecting the perfect Valentine’s Day Card.
How to Select the Perfect Valentine’s Day Card:
Mark’s guide to selecting the perfect Valentine’s Day card follows the “four Cs” – Creative. Customized. Caring. Connection.
Creative – Select the artwork that mirrors your recipient’s personality and approach to Valentine’s Day. Is he or she a witty, sentimental or cheerful? Do they love the cute stuff or are they fixated on pop-culture? There’s a card for everyone!
Customized – Be thoughtful and craft a personalized message.
Caring – Valentine’s is for everyone; it’s a day to show appreciation. On February 14 share love or spread joy whether a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, mom or dad, grandparent, or BFF.
Connection – Once the card is delivered, you’ve created a real connection. This form of direct messaging is an authentic, and simple gesture that goes a long way.
