Card Signatures

For all you guys out there who send flowers to a secret admirer, hopeful girlfriend or your office crush, and choose not to sign the card, you know you drive the recipient mad, right?

Sending cards anonymously is not recommended.

You spend all this money on the girl and don’t sign the card, how are you supposed to get any credit for your nice gesture! You should be proud and confident of what you are sending and who you are sending it to.

Signed Card with Message

Signed Card with Message

Nine times out of ten the recipient will call the flower shop and ask who the sender is. This is where it gets a little tricky. Some shops don’t even allow orders to go out anonymously because sometimes they can cause some trouble.

Bottom line, gentlemen, whether it’s for love, a crush or to cheer someone up, sign your card and have pride in your actions! Don’t make the recipient squirm with uncertainty.

WARNING:  Unsigned messages and gifts are often considered to possibly be stalking and harassment.

Card Message Etiquette

Sometimes less is more, as the saying goes.

The usual cards that we attach to your floral order are a little bigger than a business card. In saying this, although it is very sweet to profess your undying love for your sweetheart, it’s best to stick to the important points of what you would like to get across.

Large Greeting Card

Even more so can be sympathy messages when words fail you. Short and simple is best. A Thinking of You card is almost always appropriate.

Many times we receive card messages that are more similar to what we like to call a “novel” rather than a “message”. This can be very difficult to fit all those words on a small card and sometimes the printing would be so small you would need a magnifying glass in order to read it.

Most standard cards today are typed by the flower order software. Much neater and easier to read.

There is the option to purchase a large full size card if your message is a longer and we will hand write your message for you. You may even prefer a large hand written card. Also, what some people have done is email/fax or drop a card/message off which we can include with the delivery. These options are subject to availability.

Whatever way you decide to get your message across, short & sweet is always best!
