I’ll never forget the day a few years ago when I was standing in a major greeting card store chain in Toronto surrounded by literally hundreds of card options. Every card I picked up just didn’t have the right message I wanted to convey. Some were too serious, some were too mushy, and others were just too wordy. That day I was specifically looking for a special thank you card for someone that had really gone the extra mile volunteering for the non-profit organization I was involved with at the time. None of the cards I picked up said the right thing at all nor seemed to communicate how grateful I was for this person and what they had done. I literally stood there; staring blankly at the non-relevant card options in front of me and vividly remember to this day, saying out loud to myself: “Isn’t there a card with just one word that will say it all?” Within a few weeks I had registered the domain sayitwithoneword.com and now, a few years later, I am finally launching the idea behind this one-word card concept.

For those of you that know me well, you can attest to how much I love giving cards and gifts. I thrive at Christmas, birthdays and any other excuse to “give.” When it comes to gift-giving, I’m one of those people that have to absolutely love my purchases or I have a really hard time giving it. I’ve been known to return and then pick new gifts a couple times over until I’ve found the perfect gift! I feel like what I give is a representation of me and how I express myself to the recipient; some may think this is crazy but it’s me! So I’ve always been very particular about my gift giving and especially about sending the right card with the right message. This is exactly why I chose to simplify card-giving with meaningful statement words and thus develop sayitwithoneword.com. But for me it goes a step further because even if a card says the right thing, it still has to have the right look and feel too and represent me. So our cards are created around trending styles conceptualized from extensive design research and use of Pantone’s hottest color trends this season.
