Business Sympathy Cards that Express Empathy

Condolences are sometimes difficult to express in words when a person is grieving heavily over a loved one. Business sympathy cards can display your kindness with thoughtful consideration of both your relationship to the bereaved and their delicate emotional state. I feel if genuine flowers might be excessive for someone you aren’t personally close with design #087AY, Lily Sympathy Card, is adequate tribute to show you still empathize with them. A solitary and enduring lily with its peaceful green stem and soft-white trumpet is set upon muted gradations of sage and umber. The first two words in the greeting, “With Deepest Sympathy,” are set in off-white lettering over muted brown and the last word, a soothing metallic aqua script placed atop of the trailing brown gradation.

Though not as lively in color as Lily Sympathy design #100AY, Peaceful Sympathy Card, has the same tonality of neutral hues throughout. Worded exactly as its sister card, the greeting is a shining light of metallic gold script placed over a matte tan base with displays of cream and off-white. A small but somber arrangement of foliage ranging from solid to semi-transparent also adorns the card.

You can customize the imprint of your sympathy cards order with one of four appropriate greetings. The most comforting greeting to me is, “Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you during this difficult time.” The subtle earth tones with the floral and foliage themes lend themselves to make both of these sympathy cards befitting for any business leader trying to remind a grieving associate that life, with its fragile beauty, is always around us and it will always spring anew.

Business Sympathy Cards Let Others Know you Care

Suffering the loss of a loved one is devastating and each of us grieves that loss in our own way. However, when that loss affects a dear friend or business colleague, you want to reach out and just let them know they are in your thoughts. Sending business sympathy cards is the ideal way to do that without being invasive. It doesn’t intrude on a very private time, yet sends the message that someone shares their pain.

Having an elegant, classic assortment box of sympathy cards on hand, appropriate for personal or business use, would be ideal. Just as perfect as they are with a simple, heartfelt sentiment, there is also enough room for a personalized note, lending a warm, heartfelt touch. Sometimes just knowing others are remembering you at such a difficult time helps the pain a bit.

Sympathy Cards Offer Comfort during Difficult Times

Over the years I have sent many sympathy cards to family, friends and colleagues as well as business sympathy cards to acquaintances at work. I’ve never really given much thought to how these greeting cards are received or the words that are expressed inside of them. That is until I was on the receiving end; Two years ago I lost my husband of thirty-two years very suddenly.

After the shock of that experience wore off, I had the opportunity to go through all the greeting cards, condolence notecards, and flower cards that were sent immediately after his death. While the words of love and sympathy that were expressed by family and friends were very much welcome, it was some of the sympathy cards and notes that I received from total strangers that made some of the most lasting impressions. These greeting cards were from people that I had never met, but that my husband had dealings with in his job. I’ve always thought of my husband as a very honest, kind and ethical person. To have strangers confirm in these greeting cards what I have always known was very comforting. To know that he made a lasting impression in people’s lives makes my children and me very proud.

Sympathy Cards Help to Show That you Care

When an employee suffers a loss, an employer can find itself at a loss as well. How do you extend your sympathies and condolences? Although it can be hard to know the right thing to say or do, giving sympathy cards to employees who are going through a difficult time is always an appropriate gesture.

There really is no easy way to handle this type of situation but you want to make sure that you extend your sympathy and show that you value your employees. It is important to show support for a colleague who has experienced a loss. A simple and heartfelt “I’m sorry for your loss” can let a person know that he or she is thought of during a difficult time.

The 35 or 40 hours a week that employees spend at their jobs is sometimes more than they spend with their own families. It is said by many that once you become comfortable at a job your coworkers become your second family. This is the case for many employees at my company. We share in each other’s triumphs as well as challenges, often expressing ourselves with greeting cards through life’s ups and downs.

By having a box of business sympathy cards at your side, you can easily have a suitable card on hand to give to employees, ensuring that they know their second family cares for them when it counts the most.
