📬 Let's be real.

Call it old-fashioned, but you can't deny the emotional impact of receiving a real greeting card in the mail. There's a reason we're compelled to save each one we get — authenticity is rare these days.

Cardigan aims to change that. By making it easy to send anyone a real greeting card in the mail, Cardigan will help you master the art of staying in touch.

Use Cardigan To

Miraculously remember everyone's birthday

Cardigan makes it easy to never forget a birthday again. You can add contacts in your account to get notifications on important dates such as birthdays, graduations or anniversaries.

Wow someone with a 'Thank You'

Sending a thank you note is so rarified it's nearly a lost art. With Cardigan, you can charm your friends or acquaintances with this delightfully formal gesture to acknowledge a good deed in just a few minutes, and it will go a long way.

Stay in touch in the classiest way possible

Sending someone a card on a whim is the ultimate classy move. It's physical evidence that you value your relationship and mean to maintain it for life. You can tell a story or share a moment in your own handwriting, and instantly create a priceless keepsake they'll cherish.

Give someone a token of your friendship

Aside from being a delightful way of staying in touch, a greeting greeting card prompts the initiation of new friendships and promotes investment in existing ones. In other words, seeing is believing, and people will value you more when they've heard from you.

Nail an interview in 3 minutes

Call it what you like, but if you didn't send a thank you note after your last interview, you missed an opportunity to be in their heads in a positive light once again. It may sound like overkill, but that's why no one else is doing it!

How It Works

PICTURE THIS Your grandma's birthday is coming up, but she lives three states away, and nana deserves a lot more than a “HBD” on her Facebook wall. You can shop for a card at the drugstore, but they're all so cheap and tacky, AND everyone already touched them while looking for DRUGS (or worse — they bent the corners). PLUS now you have to go buy a whole roll of stamps because who has stamps? Luckily, you can send your yia yia the perfect card and schedule it to arrive right on her birthday — all from the device you're looking at!

    These aren't your drugstore's greeting cards. Cardigan scoured hundreds of hippie bookstores, the fanciest boutiques and indie sellers in the country to find the most artful and delightfully hard-to-find cards. You'll have no trouble finding a keep-worthy gem.

    Your message is the part of the card which makes it a priceless keepsake for nana. Preserving your real handwriting in ink on paper was the original idea behind Cardigan. Thanks to special compositing filters, your message is superimposed on the card surface using heated polymer ink, resulting in a tactile aesthetic that grandma will love. It's VERY cool.
