If you choose to use the Handwritten Card Service option which is next to every eligible item on its individual listing page, you'll be using our Handwritten Card Service. Once you have chosen the ADD TO BAG WITH HANDWRITTEN MESSAGE button, you'll be directed to a page and taken through some steps to ensure we have all the info we need.
You can specify the text you wish us to write in the card you're buying, whether you it sent to them directly, or to you to give - plus your desired dispatch date - and then we'll neatly write the card and it'll be on its way as you request.
If you don't want the card written out and it should be sent directly to you as new, just choose ADD TO BAG button.
This service could be really useful if you can't get out to the shops to buy a card, haven't left enough time to order online and send yourself, or if you live abroad where postal services take a long time or are unreliable. Plus, handwritten birthday cards are so much more personal than many of the printed internet greetings card buying options!
When checking out, ensure you put the delivery name and address as the address of the person you're sending the card to - if we're sending direct. Put your own address if you are having it handwritten and sent to you instead.
We'll write out the card and send it using a proper 1st class postage stamp - there's no franking or printed postage with this handwritten card service from Creased Cards.
There's no extra charge for the service - just normal delivery costs, which are around only £1.25 for a single card. You need to ensure we have your order by 4pm for the card to go out in the post that same day. As per our Delivery Information, our standard postage service is Royal Mail 1st Class. Other services are available as are detailed once you are checking out.
Please note that if you wish to order a handwritten card as part of a larger order, you will need to make separate orders as they are being delivered to different addresses. So, if you want to send 3 cards - all handwritten - to 3 different locations, that's 3 different orders. Don't worry though, our postage charges are as low as we can get them. Each card ordered under this service and being sent to a UK address costs only £1.25, that's not much more than the cost of the postage itself and helps to cover our VAT that we must pay on the postage charge.
The service is proving very popular with ex-pats across the world but particularly in places with less reliable or expensive postal services such as Dubai and the rest of the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and many others!
Do give us a call if you have any questions on this service on +44 1273 321718 and we'll happily help in any way we can, including finding a streamlined and more cost effective way to deal with multiple orders at times like Christmas where you may be sending many Christmas greeting cards. This could entail you finding the cards you want on our website, noting the codes of the cards, and then we can conclude the purchase over the phone or via email at a lower rate of postage.
