Selecting a Mother’s Day card is always a difficult decision for me. Having to express myself through somebody else’s words is never an easy task. Some people reach for the cheesy, the cliché and the inspirational. Me? I go for the laughs. My mom might fear I was dying if I gave her a serious Mother’s Day card.

Everyone shows their feelings differently. If you need some wine with all the cheese your card dishes out, or if you’re more like me, Benchmark Email has you covered.
