New home cards | A Town Called Home

So someone has a new house and you want to congratulate them in style...once you've selected the perfect new home card, it's all down to the message inside. Are you lacking a little inspiration on what to write? Don't worry, let us give you a helping hand. 

It might be easier to drop them a text, but sending a card will have a much more personal feel - plus they’ll love receiving handwritten post that they can put on display whilst they’re unpacking boxes!

There are so many ways to tell your friends, family or neighbours how happy you are for them. So whether you're looking for something short and sweet, funny or sentimental, we've done a bit of research to collate a few suggestions.

Let us help you get your message just right.
