Vintage Greeting Cards: Get Well Soon

Get well soon cards are kind of stupid. Most people don’t send cards to others when they have a cold or the flu, but for more serious illnesses — and people don’t always get well soon in that case.

Just a Note (A Sunshine Card)

I thought this was a no-occasion card until I read the inside more carefully. I like this one — it doesn’t instruct anyone to get well soon.

No front greeting (A Sunshine Card)

This card is very 70s. It is unusual for a Sunshine card in that there is no illustration on the back. This card wouldn’t really fly today. People are no longer encouraged to tell others to “cheer up”.

Here’s hoping your sickness blows over (card company not specified)

I remember this card from my childhood. It’s silly and glittery. And what about that “An” instead of “and” on the inside? What’s that about?
