7. CREATE MY OWN “HALLMARK HANDY” STASH OF CARDS.
Despite my best efforts to spend time each month figuring out what cards need to be created and mailed to loved ones, I know that things will come up at the last minute and it would be nice to have a card on hand. Because of the week or two lead-time needed to create, publish and mail a Heritage Makers greeting card, that doesn’t always work in a pinch.
So if I simply create a batch of more-generic but still more-custom cards for thank yous, birthdays, sympathy, just because, thinking of you, congrats, and such — I’ll be prepared for whatever comes up along the way. I can keep my own mini inventory of cards ready to hand out or mail out on a minute’s notice. Then I won’t have to pay for over-priced store cards and I won’t be sending special but belated ones either.
