Personal documents like letters and journals have long been valued for the insights they provide. Personal letters include valuable information that might not be found in offical historical documents. For instance, they can do a better job of showing the emotional impact of certain events.
Many letters have been placed in museums and published in books. Some are valued for their historical significance; others for their secular significance. Consider Albert Einstein’s letter to President Roosevelt concerning the possibility of nuclear bombs or the letter from Elvis Presley to President Nixon requesting an audience.
While most people’s letters won’t be placed in museums, they can still be very important within the family. People often keep cards and letters as keepsakes. As such, they can bring a sense of comfort to the receiver as they can be read and reread. They can bring a sense of history to descendants as they look back at a simple family history.
With SendOutCards, you can choose your design, even a photo, and create your own inscription. What a cool way to tell a story about your life. For example, if you have a child away from home – in college, serving in the military, working in a distant city – you can design cards that will help them see what is happening at home. What a unique way to help them feel closer. And with a physical card, they can go back to it over and over and even share it with others.
