WRITE TO ME | CARDS FOR KEEPS
From Write to Me
A special journal to write cards that can be created from a partner, children or family. Each year cards can be designed with words, drawings or photos with well wishes for any occasion. Have your cards kept in one place to look back on with fond memories. Like a never-ending love letter over many years.
Can create 64 single page cards or 32 cards with double page spreads or 16 cards made up of a traditional four-page card.
Are you the sentimental type who keeps all the greeting cards that have ever been given to you on every occasion? How can you throw them out when people you love have handwritten you notes with all their best wishes? They are so lovely to read back on and can become priceless when people pass on and you have their handwriting. And then if you have children the card becomes more special than the gift! The first time they draw you a picture, write I love you and grow to write messages, those cards never get thrown out and you never want to lose them.
Together with Kyree Harvey of @misskyreeloves, we have created a keepsake that over the years will be another way of collecting your memories with handwritten gifts of love. It is also a tradition you can start with children. A journal they will read back on in their adult life and forever have love and wishes with them in loved ones handwriting.
We always say there is nothing more sentimental than a handmade card. Cards For Keeps is the place to keep yearly messages and memories for Birthday,
Christmas, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and any other occasions close to your hearts.
A note from Kyree:
“ I’ve always loved cards on special occasions. I’ve kept every card since I was little and literally have boxes of them stored around. I more recently chose to only keep the sentimental ones from my husband and from the kids to reduce how much I’m collecting.
I’ve stored the cards in a more organised box under each celebration tab so I can look back on them. But I was still craving something that was ultra-sentimental and super easy to pull out at any time to flip through.
I wanted a book where I could display in our home always and see the change in handwriting over the years as my children grow up. I wanted to see their artwork flourish and the love between their mummy and daddy wrapped around all the same pages.
So the Cards For Keeps book came to life. I’m so proud of this baby that I helped to create with Write To Me. The timeless velvet fabric in both red and blue, perfect for all members of your family to personalise.
Each birthday, mother’s day, father’s day, any special occasion. Use this book to write your well wishes, your love notes, your dreams and hopes for the year to come. We’ve kept the pages blank for you and your children to fill each page over the years with your creativity and adventures.
In 30+ years time, you’ll be able to flip through the book and reminisce over hundreds of memories made.”

How much is postage and handling?
All local (Bay of Plenty wide) orders over $20 and all NZ orders over $100 are shipped free of charge (excluding oversized items - we will calculate your shipping cost when we receive your order) if your order is under $100 it is just $7 flat rate nationwide.
Shipping to Australia is $18 flat rate for all orders under $200, orders over $200 are free (excluding oversized items - we will contact you with a shipping quote)
Can you ship internationally?
Most items we can definitely ship internationally, some things (particularly fragile or oversized items) may not be able to be shipped, or may cost a little extra to send. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any queries about international shipping!
How long will my order take to arrive?
We aim to dispatch orders within 1-2 working days, then courier is usually overnight for North Island deliveries and 2-3 working days for South Island deliveries. For rural addresses please allow an extra 1-2 working days. We can send overnight to South Island and Saturday deliveries are definitely doable too - just double check with us before placing the order. If the item you are purchasing is a preorder item, we state the ETA on the products' page, these are however just estimates and delays do occasionally occur which are beyond our control. Please also bare in mind we only a small team and although we process orders as soon as we can, occasionally they can take a little longer than these time frames. If you are needing an order before a specific date, please get in touch with us before you place the order and we'll ensure it is fast tracked for you!
We have had an email saying our order is on the way, but it hasn't arrived yet?
Most orders should get to you the next working day. South Island deliveries can take up to 2-3 working days and rural deliveries can take an extra day or two on top of that. However, occasionally courier companies do make errors and that can lead to a day or two delay. In the dispatch confirmation email and on your order confirmation page on the website (a link to this page is on your order confirmation email) you should be able to see a link to the courier company's website and live tracking updates so you can follow its progress to you - there is also a contact phone number for the courier company on that page should you wish to enquire about the status of your order.
We haven't received a dispatch confirmation email yet?
We aim to dispatch orders of in stock items as soon as we can - most of the time that is the same or next working day but occasionally it can take 2-3 days as we are only a small team and some weeks are busier than others (especially during peak sales periods). It also pays to double check in the item's products description on the website as some products have shipping times of up to 7-10 working days or occasionally longer for custom made products or products from overseas. We do this on products that we don't carry large quantities of stock of, so that instead of the product showing up as sold out, we leave it up on the website so you're still able to purchase it and we send it out to you as soon as the new shipment of them arrives.
Can we return products if they're not quite right?
Sure! We completely understand that sometimes buying online can be tricky and some things need to be seen in-situ for a decision to be made! Unfortunately we're not able to refund items unless they are faulty and no replacements are available, however we are more than happy to issue you a store credit which has no expiry so you can use it any time! We just require you to send it back to us within 7 days of receipt of the order in the original packaging and condition and all swing tags / labels etc still attached. We will process your store credit (of the value of the product excluding shipping costs) as soon as we receive it. Please note, there are some exceptions to this, such as some fragile items, furniture and products on sale so please ensure you contact us prior to returning.
We are more than happy to offer discounts for bulk purchases or designers.
The minimum order is $400, discounts start at 15% but the more regularly you shop the bigger the discount you'll receive.
