Did your best friend move away to college? Perhaps they finally landed that dream job and set sail (so to speak) for a place far far away. Maybe your sibling lives in a different state or city. Even if the person you’re missing lives right next door, perhaps you’ve drifted apart the last few weeks — or years. Regardless of how long you’ve been separated — figuratively or literally — you can always reconnect when you’re ready. All you have to do is say the word[s] — I miss you. Telling someone that you’re missing them with I miss you cards is the small gesture that has a big effect. You may not be able to go back to how things were before, but there’s always opportunity to start things anew. Getting a fresh start to any relationship requires someone to reach out.
Sure, you could send a quick text, but that won’t have the same effect. Make a statement by sending I miss you cards to those in your life you’d like to get back in touch with. For those people that are far away, starting to pen pal with each other is a great way to instantly reconnect. Catching up on all the things you may have missed in each other’s lives is way more fun with adorable snail mail. Emails are nice and quick, but they simply don’t have the same effect as snail mail. When was the last time you got excited about an email? Never. That’s when.
So, if you’re ready to reconnect with someone in your life — here are 11 I miss you cards that will help get the conversations rolling (they’re pretty darn cute too). [Pro tip: You can mail all of these cards without ever leaving your computer. You’ll be able to write whatever you’d like on the inside of these cards. Postable will then print, address and mail your cards for you.]

Choose the card that speaks to you and remember — you can mail it without ever leaving your computer.
Question is — which of these I miss you cards will you send?
