How to perfect your card stash

How to perfect your card stash

Are you tired of always scrambling to find the perfect greeting card for every occasion? We totally feel you. It's like every time a birthday or anniversary rolls around, you suddenly have to make a last minute diversion to your local OTR, sweating bullets and wondering if a "congrats on your promotion" card will work for your friend's wedding. Well, fear not! We've got the solution: a card stash!

Yes, that's right, you can be the hero of every occasion with a well-stocked stash of greeting cards. And we're not talking about any old cards, oh no. We're talking about a carefully curated collection of cards that will have you ready for anything life throws your way. 

Here's how to get started:

Variety is the spice of life!

First things first, you want to make sure your cards are versatile. You don't want to be caught with a bunch of "happy retirement" cards when what you really need is a birthday card. So, aim for cards that can work for multiple occasions. Our "I love you, weirdo" card, for example, is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or just to say hello to your favourite weirdo.

The ingredients to make the perfect cash stash:

Our recommendation is to have at least a couple that are suitable for birthdays and anniversaries, one to two for a wedding and engagement, and one to acknowledge a sticky or tough situation. Most importantly though, make sure you’re also using cards to acknowledge people outside of major occasions - it’s a great habit to get into, it can do wonders for relationships and will truly cement your status as a thoughtful friend. 

Mix it up!

Next, mix it up! You want a good balance of funny and sentimental cards. Sure, a "that's a little shit" card might make your friend laugh, but sometimes you just need a card to say "I'm here for you". And hey, if all else fails, you can always go for a card with no message on the front and write your own heartfelt message inside (or a dirty limerick, we won't judge).

The that's a little shit card may be appropriate for some situations, but probably not all ;)

The magic number!

Finally, make sure you have enough cards to last you a while. We recommend at least 5 to 10 cards in your stash, so you're always prepared. And if you're really serious about your card stash game, check out “the always ready” pack, which includes eight cards perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and just letting your friends know you care. Plus, it comes with free delivery anywhere in Australia!
