It’s always been hard for us to shop for sympathy cards. They’re either too generic or too syrupy. Few reflect what we’re really feeling for the people in our lives who have lost loved ones.
So we decided to design our own. How challenging could it be, we thought, to create heartfelt sympathy cards? Pretty challenging, we discovered. Creating image-word combinations that aren’t cheesy or dismissive is much harder than it sounds.
It’s kind to send a card to someone who’s grieving. It’s also a delicate act during a tender, heartbreaking time. To respect grief and the grieving process, we take extra time to design the most authentic cards we can.
A good sympathy card is helpful for the sender because it reflects their sincere wishes for peace and healing. It’s helpful for the recipient by allowing them enough space to feel whatever they’re feeling. Striking that balance takes reflection, research, and time.
But after years of designing sympathy cards, we now have more than two dozen of them, featuring paired images and words that communicate care and presence. Many thankful customers, and recipients, have contacted us over the years to tell us how much a Stonehenge sympathy card meant to them.
If you need to send a card to someone in your life who’s had to say goodbye to someone close to them, we have many to choose from. Look through all of our sympathy cards and see which one will help you express your support, care, and love.
