Why Many People Consider Greeting Cards To Be A Strong Expression Of Love

Oct 18, 2007
Greeting cards are arguably one of the best ways to let someone know how you feel about them. Cards about love are one of the greeting card industry's most lucrative products. Love is a strong emotion. It moves people to action. People want to have a tangible way to express their emotion of love and they will buy anything that accomplishes that goal.

When you market greeting cards, you are marketing people's emotions. Love is by far the most powerful emotion. The expression of love that is demonstrated by a simple greeting card can spark a relationship that will last a forever. Whether it is a friendly type of love, a long distance relative, or the most commercialized romantic variety, a greeting card can play a big part in expressing your feelings.

A greeting card that is given to a person who is ill or suffering in pain, it shows the love and compassion of someone who cares. When a person is hospitalized, a greeting card can be placed by beside the bed as a daily reminder, that they are not alone in their afflictions. When a person has suffered another kind of pain, such as the loss of a loved one, a greeting card can show the tender love of compassion.
When a person's feelings have been injured, a greeting card can show a love of empathy or an expression of sorrow and plea of forgiveness. Love is the most tender of emotions and its expression causes the love to grow. The more love you give, the more you have to give.

The photos or drawings on a greeting card can help a person visualize the love and caring that is intended with the words on and in the card. They help make clear and intensify the emotions when the card has a loving picture on the cover. A well chosen card may even help melt a hardened heart that has shut itself off to love.

The power of a greeting card designed to demonstrate love should never be underestimated. While some may poke fun at the simple act of a giving a card, others rely on the ability of a card to smooth the way for a deeper relationship. The recipient's favorite color, flower, animal, or hobby shown on the front of the card can stimulate something in their hearts or bring to mind a fond memory. A person who opens this kind of card may smile when otherwise a smile has not been forthcoming. When they read the carefully chosen words, it will deepen the mood. After that, a phone call or letter or even an email of much awaited thanks will invite further conversation and contact.

Greeting cards are so simple and yet can convey profound emotions. It may bring to remembrance the nervousness with which the first greeting card was given by a shy teen to a charming first love. Whatever loving emotion you are trying to convey you can be sure there is a greeting card to express it for you.
