No matter the occasion, we all like the flowers or gifts we present to be accompanied by a postcard text from us. But writing this short text is not always easy for everyone. Choosing the proper text for your postcard can have a positive effect on the receiving person. Sometimes you get better at writing by simply checking your note over and over and adjusting a few changes every time. Keep in mind that it is always better to take your time and write something of your own instead of using repetitive sentences that fit your mood.
Picking the title of a postcard
Depending on the occasion, you need to pick a good title for your postcard. Usually, try to start the congratulatory message with a phrase that is addressed to the receiving party. You can also start the message with just the recipient’s name. See the following examples:
My companion and friend
Dear colleague, I am always with you
My dear father
