Cards with inside message

You pretty much just write:

To Recipient......
long message from the card manufacturer...
From Sender.

Waste of money or convenience? I personally think if you are going to spend money on a greeting card, you might as well write a nice message in it. Your thoughts? smile

You can get cards with no messages.
And anyway even with the messages already written inside, you know you can write your own message too? I quite often do. And most cards don't have a "long message" it's usually just "happy birthday".

cards are a waste of time and money full stop - once you've wasted the time and money buying the card, the message is fine.

I never read all that rubbish they write inside. I don't really see the point in cards unless you are going to put a personal message in there. I'm with you OP waste of money really

I think they are super naff and only buy plain greetings cards, or make my own!

I just leave a quick message - and include a separate letter if I feel I want to say something else.

Are you a journalist?

I only ever buy blank cards, because they tend to have a much nicer image on the front. Try to get ones that could be displayed, or framed, if so desired. V&A do lovely cards.

Agree a personal message makes it worthwhile.

I am terrible and clear the birthday cards away the very next day. They look so untidy and always fall over. Go be recycled already.
