Telling a story with photos will be the most romantic gift for my boyfriend. Jeremy is in Africa, and I am in Colorado. Every night we look at O'reins belt to remind us that our love knows no distance.
Tellinga sends greeting cards through traditional snail mail. Each image is hand-drawn by a talented Tellinga artist on a 5" x 7" premium 32 pt thick greeting card-sized postcard with cool red edges. It is then placed in a 5.25" x 7.25" brown grocery bag style envelope with the customer's address used as the return address. Before your card is shipped to its location, a charity stamp, and custom wax seal are applied. Afterward, the digital copies of your story are uploaded in the "Download Your Story" section of the website and are also sent to your email to share online with family and friends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight Alzheimer's disease, support breast cancer research, or treat those impacted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
