BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
When a friend goes through an illness or a death in the family, it can be tough to know what to send when looking for sympathy cards or get well cards. Card Gnome, an online greeting card company powered by independent artists, suggests adding a little bit of humor to the mix to send a smile to someone you love.
"Funny sympathy cards don’t make fun of the hard times," said Joel Wishkovsky, co-founder and CEO of Card Gnome. "They remind recipients that you want to help shine a light on their dark moment. After offering your condolences, let them know you're there to help, then end on a positive note with a tasteful joke."
"Funny get well cards are just the ticket when someone goes through a long illness or just needs a hug," continues Wishkovsky. "Choose a get well card with a silly image, such as a sheepish-looking dog with a hot water bottle, to let a friend know they’ll get through it with a smile."
Wishkovsky and the team at Card Gnome recommend not to worry about saying the wrong thing but rather sending a lighthearted card shows a loved one isn’t alone.
Card Gnome brings the convenience of a favorite card store, writing desk and local post office all in one place online. Check out Card Gnome for sympathy, get well cards and more.
