Church Cards Encourage You in the Everyday Moments of Life

Thanks My Friend For All You Do

When the pressures of life are pressing in on you, the kind words of a friend can feel like a valve that de-stresses your day. The wisest man who ever lived said that the right words spoken at the right time are like apples of gold in settings of silver – valuable and lovely. Sometimes we have the chance to speak kind words that give courage face to face, but other times we want to say something, but lack the opportunity. For people of faith, church cards provide a terrific way to interrupt someone’s day with important words during everyday moments in life.

Church cards sent on birthdays, wedding anniversaries and baptisms are great. There are all kinds of cheerful occasions when a religious greeting card is appropriate. But those days are far from the only moments in life when a fit word can cheer the heart. There are all kinds of significant times in life when a faith-filled card could do the trick.

When was the last time, for example, that you sent a card to thank your pastor or priest? These leaders wear the mantle of spiritual responsibility 24/7 and that is no light task in today’s world. Although they’ve been given the privilege of leadership, they are made of the very same stuff as the rest of us which means that at times, they feel discouraged. A card which thanks them for their work, which prays for their fruitfulness in service or which reminds them that it was God Himself who called them and will therefore continue equipping them may be the very thing that is needed to reinvigorate them.

Missionaries live and work out of sight, but they don’t need to be out of mind. These faithful servants have the very same struggles with marriages, kids, and ministry as anyone on top of living in another culture. An encouragement card that reminds them that they are thought of and prayed for could arrive on the very day that a pressure valve is needed.

Church cards commemorate ordinations and ordination anniversaries. There are cards with scriptures to send in honor of retirement as well as ones which make note of the joys and challenges associated with a job transfer. After all, even moving into a new home is a mixed bag of pleasure and pressure. There are church cards just for that day too.

Life was not meant to be walked through alone, because there are spots in the road where everyone needs an encouraging word or a helping hand. Faith-based cards work for all those times when getting together face to face doesn’t seem to happen.

All of life is a gift, so every day is special, yet some days just feel weightier. Sending a church card at such a time is a great way to breathe strength and courage into someone. If you are looking for cards to acknowledge ordinations, ministry service, job change or moving, why not check out the selection of church cards at The Printery House? Your card will be as valuable and precious as golden apples on a silver platter.

Religious Thank You Cards: The Gift of Saying Thanks

Next to the winter holidays, springtime may just be the busiest social time of the year. There are graduations, concerts, performances, open houses and wedding showers in abundance around this season.

As the weather warms up a bit and spring moves into summer there will be more weddings, garden parties, pool parties, barbecues and 4th of July events to attend. It is a great time of year for social interactions. All of which means it is a good idea to stock up on Thank You cards now so that you will have them on hand when you need them.

Lest you think that Thank You cards are a quaint relic of the past, think for a moment about how you feel when you discover an actual piece of personal correspondence in the mailbox. If you’re honest, it makes you feel just a bit happier about lugging in all the bulk mailings and bills to sort through. Keep that in mind when you write out a thank you card this spring/summer, you are sending happiness in an envelope to someone!

Thank you cards are really part of an ongoing conversation. Social interaction is a give and receive affair. Whether plain, funny or religious, thank you cards are one way that we show people that they are appreciated for themselves and not just their attendance or their gifts.

If you are a Christian, then the words of God are part of your everyday life and conversation already, so why not send a religious thank you card? Believing friends and family will appreciate being remembered and they will also appreciate the encouraging words and scripture verses. Saying thank you with a religious thank you card thus becomes a double-sided gift. The Printery House has an excellent selection of Thank You cards, all made on-site in the beautiful rolling hills of Conception Abbey.

Want to Send Religious Greeting Cards? Here’s What Might be Stopping You

Thank you religious greeting cards
God Loves a Cheerful Giver

The mailbox can be a surprise – you never know what will be inside. Of course, there are bound to be bills, and some advertising, but there is always hope that it just might hold something really fun too.

Knowing how we all secretly yearn for a piece of personal mail should motivate us to be more intentional about sending notes, cards and letters, but there could be a number of reasons we don’t do it more than we do. Here are some common excuses and how to overcome them.

I don’t think about writing until it is too late

First of all, it could mean that we are just out of the habit of writing and sending things like thank you notes. Deciding to do it will help us to re-establish the habit and we will start to think of it. Secondly, it does happen that things sneak up on us so we may need to use some of the tools available. Electronic reminders sent to your computer can help you remember important events like birthdays and anniversaries. Lastly, keep in mind that it is always better to send that thank you note, religious greeting card, or birthday card late than to not send it at all.

I don’t have anything on hand when I do think about it

This is a common problem, but one that is easily remedied. Choose a place where you can keep a stash of stationery, organize your birthday cards and religious greeting cards so that they are on hand when you need them. You can buy most cards in boxed sets so that you have a bunch ready to go. Guys often don’t enjoy picking out these supplies, so why not include them as gifts when the next occasion arises. Guys often prefer plain note cards, monogrammed note paper or unadorned thank you notes.

I don’t know what to write

Even when we’re prepared, it can be tough to think of what to say. An email saying thanks seems simpler, but writing out the words will mean so much more. For thank you cards, mention why you enjoyed the time together or how you will use the gift. Greeting cards can mention something you enjoyed during your last visit together or something you anticipate about the next time you will see the person. Religious greeting cards can make note of a prayer you pray for the person.

Having a plan to remind you to write, keeping supplies on hand and personalizing the note with one or two lines are simple steps toward developing a writing habit. An easy way to stay stocked is to shop online at stationery suppliers like The Printery House. Send a surprise to someone’s mailbox soon.

Homemade Cards: Hand Lettering and Art Still in Style

Assorted Greeting CardsIn a world of text messages and email, getting an actual piece of mail in the mailbox has become even more precious. Cards can show up to make a Happy Birthday wish, console a hurting loved one, or just drop in to bring a smile. A card made by hand goes one step beyond in conveying your thoughts and emotions. You can say exactly what you want to say and in a way that is uniquely you.

Making a homemade card is a lot of fun once you get started. To begin with take some time and stroll through the office supply store or craft store. There you will find card stock in a variety of weights and colors. You might want to pick up several colors to find which you like the best.

Next, take a look at the stamps. You don’t have to stamp a pre-made message like Happy Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You or Get Well, but it can take off some of the pressure and allow your creativity to focus elsewhere. It’s up to you.

Women or girls on your list might really enjoy receiving a card embellished with a pressed flower, fancy buttons, patterned ribbon or glitter. Homemade cards make a great home for your broken or mismatched jewelry too. Use wire cutters to clip off the metal and just attach the pretty adornment to your card with glue.

You can personalize a card for men by mounting pictures of cars, trucks, fishing equipment and such on a background color and pasting it to the front of your card. Men might enjoy finding a tiny lure attached to a card. If you find a funny cartoon in a newspaper or magazine, why not save it and share it on a card? The possibilities are endless and it is loads of fun to look at the world as your own treasure hunt for new ideas.

Making a card by hand represents a personal investment. That is precisely what makes the cards at The Printery House so special. The Printery House cards are created, lettered, and printed on-site. The monks themselves create some of the original artwork and lettering, as well as a team of artists. These cards are made from the heart to help you share your faith and encourage others, and can be a beautiful memory to treasure for years to come.
