Fun Facts about Greeting Cards and the Greeting Card Industry

Christmas Greeting CardsGreeting Cards have been used for decades as a way of showing customer appreciation, express words of kindness, or simply to tell someone you love and care for them.  I’ve been involved with a company called SendOutCards for a couple of years now, and they specialize in custom greeting cards.  SendOutCards is classified as a legitimate home based business opportunity or network marketing opportunity.  I contend, however, that Send Out Cards is more of a “movement” in that it attracts people that “get it”.  Send Out Cards teaches the laws of positive attraction that are clearly defined in the best selling book “The Secret“.  By sending out unexpected cards and gifts to loved ones, thank you cards to clients,  I’m convinced now more than ever that you can separate yourself from your competition, and start attracting abundance into your life…both personally and professionally.  Check out the facts below about the Greeting Card Industry…it just might surprise you!
