Oh what a lovely sound – downbeat and swing-y. Sad-tinged with a hint of humour. Here in Edinburgh for the festival.
I am researching information for an article about greeting cards around the world today – who sends them, what do they send – and I have put the questions into a survey.
The survey is set up to accept free-form answers. In other words, you can write a sentence or just a word or two – whatever you think is appropriate.
I’ve list the questions here so that you know what to expect – and you can take the Greeting Card Survey on SurveyMonkey.
- What cards are ‘must-sends’ (e.g. Mother’s Day)
- Do most towns have shops that specialise in selling greeting cards?
- What is the typical cost of a card + postage ?
- Are most cards blank inside or do they have a verse or other words pre-printed on the inside?
- Do people display cards they receive – for example, putting them on a mantelpiece?
- Who sends cards – for example – young people / only older people / mostly women?
- Is the practise of sending cards a generational thing that is dying out or are cards going strong?
- Add the name of your country here.
Again, you can take the survey HERE on SurveyMonkey.
