  • What are some things to say in a sympathy card?

    Finding the right words for a sympathy card can be difficult. Of course everyone's situation is going to vary in many respects so there's no one size fits all in this scenario. However, there are a few key elements to keep in mind as you compose your mesage:

    * Keep it short.
    Remember that a sympathy card doesn't have a whole lot of space so be sure to keep your message to the point. You also don't need to draw out your sympathy wishes.

    * Let them know they're in your thoughts.
    At the end of the day, the point of a sympathy card isn't to try and solve anyone's problems. The point is to remind our loved ones that they are in our thoughts to help them heal. Think of your card as a thoughtful comfort blanket.

    * Let them know you're there for them.
    Again, the way in which you're able to be 'there' for someone will vary by situation. However, in addition to letting them know that you're thinking of them, it's also nice to let them know that you're there if they need you. If you're able, perhaps that means to bring them some food or perhaps that means you're only a phone call away. Whatever this means for you, make it clear to them that you're willing and able to help in any way you can. And be specific.
  • Are sympathy cards appropriate?

    If you're unsure if your situation calls for a sympathy card, an almost sure-fire way to get around this is to choose a 'thinking of you card' instead. It serves a similar function, but can really be sent in most cases without seeming inappropriate. It's always a nice gesture if someone in our lives is going through something tough to let them know that we're around for them should they need a shoulder or just an ear. Other times, it helps just to let them know that you're thinking of them.
  • Where can I buy sympathy cards online?

    Nowadays you can find almost anything you could ever dream of online -- including sympathy cards. Buying sympathy cards online via Postable is definitely the easiest route if you're looking to mail sympathy cards as soon as possible while still keeping high quality and a high level of personalization in tact.
  • When to send sympathy cards?

    It's always best to send sympathy cards as soon as you hear of a loss, but if you've waited for any reason -- it's still better to send a sympathy card later rather than never. You can also send 'thinking of you' cards periodically as a way to comfort your loved ones while they heal.
