Send Hand Written Wishes This Holiday Season!

A hand written message inside a holiday card adds the perfect touch of personalization. It lets the recipient know you took the time to scribe them an individual message, in addition to the printed greeting. Here at the studio, we decided to hand write messages in some TGWC holiday cards to spread some holiday cheer!

We sent cards to an 8 year-old girl named Safyre, who tragically lost her family in a house fire and suffered severe burns. All Safyre wanted for Christmas was holiday cards, so we made sure she received some! A few of us also made custom cards personalized with her name. If you’d like to learn more about Safyre’s story, click here.

We also donated some of our holiday cards to the Boy Scouts of America who addressed them with heart felt messages and sent them off to troops overseas! We’re so glad to see our cards going to great use :)

We love to see our holiday cards in action! If you send out TGWC holiday cards with hand written messages, feel free to send photos – we’d love to share them!

Real Life Gifting: Making Common Gifts Special

When you have so many gifts to give, the common go-to’s seem to be the easiest to grab, like a scented candle or a small jewelry item. Want to escape the feeling of giving an unoriginal gift? Turn it into a showstopper with wrap and embellishments! Here are 3 examples of how to turn go-to-gifts into stand outs:

Adorn a scented candle with your choice of ribbon and a festive ornament to take it from drab to fab!

Dress up a CD case by wrapping it in pleated tissue. Add some burlap ribbon and a wooden die-cut to top it off!

Make gifting jewelry fun by wrapping the keepsake box. Top with organdy ribbon and a tag with a personal message!

The Gift Wrap Company Gives Back!

Giving Back

Around the holiday season, it’s natural to want to spread some cheer! Each of our office locations are doing their part to remind us that it is always better to give than to receive.

Collections of toys, food and clothing donations are a big part of our holiday plans this year, since there are so many families in need. We also are very pleased to help out in our own special way by donating gift wrapping supplies, because we know how important gift wrap is to making any celebration complete!
