There are not many days left for Diwali and if you have not yet sent your Diwali greeting cards then it’s time to do so. With so many choices of Diwali card designs it’s quite easy to find the right one in just a few minutes.
There are two ways of sending out greeting cards – either traditional paper cards or E-cards.
Paper greeting cards: As Diwali nears most gift shops are flooded with Diwali greeting cards. From small to king size, from simple to ornate, these cards are just a delight to look at. The ones with cartoons are normally reserved for children whilst the one with traditional Diwali images may be more appropriate for relatives and friends. These cards are decorated with semi-precious stones, laces, beads, sequins, and lots of glitter to mirror the grandeur of the Diwali celebrations. Musical greeting cards are also available in the market, which upon opening sing traditional Diwali songs.
Diwali E-cards: The paperless way of conveying your Diwali wishes is through electronic greeting cards. With the advent and accessibility of new technologies the world has become more accessible in turn. This innovation has made it possible to send electronic greeting cards in a matter of minutes to anywhere. Many greeting card websites also have the option of scheduling. This means that you can design your card today and schedule it to be sent later (so that you don’t forget to send the greetings at the last minute).
E-cards give you the option of customising the cards in terms of their backgrounds, font colors, fonts, personal messages etc. so that you can create as you please. Animated fireworks, blinking lights, burning diyas, etc. are also very popular around Diwali time. You can even add songs and messages in your own voice to many of the personalised cards.
Diwali greeting cards are available for kids, parents, brothers, sisters, friends, lovers and neighbors and just about anybody and every relation that comes to mind. Diwali is a festival of sharing your joy with others as well as your wishes for prosperity in the world.
Remember for Diwali 2012, if you have made up your mind to send paper greeting cards via the post then make sure you post them at least 15-20 days before Diwali so that it can be delivered on time.
Also, make sure that you write the correct address so that it doesn’t get lost in the mail. A thoughtful greeting card is the way to tell the recipient that you really care this Diwali.
