When I was a kid, my grandparents were always thrilled to receive something in the mail from me. It let them know that I was thinking of them in the midst of whatever was going on in my life.
It was a simple gesture that carried so much meaning and kept us connected.
Many of us have grandparents or other loved ones we can’t see right now due to COVID, and it can be hard to grapple with those limitations while knowing they’re more isolated than ever.
An easy way to send them some love or Thank Yous is with a Waldogram. With Waldograms, you can create your own personalized greeting card right from your phone — and Waldo will print and mail it on your behalf!
How It Works
Simply pick a favorite photo your loved one will cherish, choose a professionally-designed overlay to accompany it, add a note, and personalize your stamp — and you’re done!
Whether you’re sending your love, gratitude, sympathy, or thanks, your friends, family members, or frontline workers will receive their beautiful, personalized, two-sided 5×7 card from Waldo in 4 – 6 business days.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few thoughtful ways to use Waldograms to show how much you care.
1. Thinking of you cards
Waldograms are a great way to let your loved ones know they’re on your mind during these crazy times. In the chaos of all that’s been going on, pausing to let them know you care can be a bright spot in their day.
So, find that favorite photo of you and Grandma and send it on your Waldogram with a message to let her know how special that memory is to you!
2. Thank you cards
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” —Gilbert K. Chesterton
Perhaps you’ve just graduated from high school or college and are looking for an easy way to thank all of those who have supported your journey and celebrated your accomplishments thus far. Perhaps you’re looking to express your gratitude to a frontline worker for treating you — or, say you just want to thank a loved one for what they have done for you during quarantine — Waldograms are a great way to send a thank you card right from your phone.
You could use a photo that shows you enjoying a special gift you received, or perhaps a warm hug, and put it on a Waldogram for the sender of the gift. Whatever it is you’re grateful for, it’s never too late to say thank you!
3. Birthday cards
While celebrating “Quarantine Birthdays” have become commonplace now, that doesn’t take away the sting of not being able to be with our loved ones and friends. Especially for a family member living alone or in a nursing home, their birthday could end up feeling like a lonely letdown.
A Waldogram lets you send a one-of-a-kind birthday card that you’ve tailored especially to delight your friends and family and brighten their day.
4. Get well cards
If someone you know is struggling with a health issue, now is the perfect time to send out a thoughtful “Get Well” card. Especially with visitor restrictions in hospitals and nursing homes right now, they may not see anyone other than their caretakers for weeks on end.
Getting a personalized postcard could help soften the feelings of isolation while they’re healing, and it lets them know that their health and wellbeing is on your mind.
Personalized, thoughtful, and convenient
During a time when getting out and about may not be best for you or your community, Waldograms allow you to stay connected and send a real greeting card in the mail right from your phone. Save yourself on trips to the store and the post office, and let Waldo mail it for you!
While a lot of store-bought cards end up in the wastebasket, a personalized Waldogram is likely to be cherished forever. Don’t be surprised if you see it hung up on Grandma and Grandpa’s fridge or corkboard when you’re finally able to visit again!
