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 online sympathy cards. Flowers are a time-honored symbol of your concern, so start with sympathy and condolence 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. If that message is something you’re worrying over, Emily McDowell’s cards start off your sympathies with heartfelt and hopeful words that your friend is sure to appreciate. Bernard Maisner’s elegant calligraphy and bluepoolroad’s minimal typography elevate even the simplest of condolence messages. 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.
Even if you choose a card that gives you a head start, use the online design tool to craft and customize a few sympathy verses of your own. (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 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.
