Sympathy cards online

When circumstances leave you struggling for words, let us help you find your voice. Send a friend your support and most caring sentiments with our virtual sympathy cards. Flowers are a time-honored symbol of your concern and of greater grace, so start with our online sympathy cards featuring delicate hand-drawn bouquets or traditional sprays of lilies and peonies. John Derian’s archive of botanical illustrations make a warm and contemplative accompaniment to the message you’ll share, too.

Virtual condolence cards

If your sympathy card message is something you’re worrying over, we can help you find just the right words. Our virtual sympathy cards speak to even the toughest of circumstances. Bernard Maisner’s elegant calligraphy and bluepoolroad’s minimal typography elevate even the simplest of condolence messages, so you can speak with sincerity—the most important thing to say in a virtual sympathy card, as it were. Those joining the mourning of man’s best friend can find pet sympathy cards from Mr. Boddington’s Studio designed with a bit of quirky empathy.

What to write in sympathy cards?

Our online sympathy cards allow you to send condolences with a click of a button. We give you a place to start with pre-formatted copy, but our online design tool lets you craft and customize your sympathy card online with your own personal message. (Don’t worry too much about wordsmithing: sincerity is a much more valuable commodity.) Pick out a font and color that matches your card’s aesthetic and make sure every last detail fits your message—including your backdrop and envelope liner. The occasion may be solemn, but adding a soothing and beautiful detail to every part of your greeting is a gesture that won’t go unnoticed. Online delivery is simple and swift. You’ll find your recipient’s email in the online address book but you can also import their name from your email account.

Hopefully, you’ll have an occasion to send your friend a happier note. Browse our greeting cards for holidays, birthdays, and other happy occasions. Even if you don’t have a specific day in mind, a just-because card is a way to send a little dose of designed cheer to your loved one’s mailbox.
