I don't know about you but one of my resolutions this year is that to get my personal calendar organized so that I won't forget another birthday again. If you're anything like me, I start out each year with good intentions and my mid-March I'm flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to sending out birthday and anniversary cards. I think I've found the solution though with Jack Cards. A unique online system that you can build an account of all your important dates and events, Jack Cards will send you a reminder a couple weeks out so that you can log on and pick out a card for your special someone [or do it all ahead of time if you're that organized]
In addition to the reminder and your order, they will also stamp the envelope and address it. All you have to do once it arrives is sign your name [or perhaps I'll actually have time to write something now] and pop it in the mail.
Normally with a site like this, I would imagine the cards to be a bit grammie-esque but their online inventory is as good as my favorite card shop carrying everything from letterpress to funny, cute cards.
A girlfriend of mine has already given the site a test run with two dates and has been very impressed with their delivery turn around and even the proper stamp price for those pesky square format cards.If you prefer to fly by the seat of your ical you can also log on and "buy now" like a regular ecommerce site. To be honest, I'm not quite sure how they pull off the pricing as it's on par with shopping at a store with so many more perks thrown in. I won't question it at all, just use it to my full advantage. Or if you're sweetheart is as awful as I am with dates just sign them up so they never leave you empty handed again!
