What is the Difference between Greeting Cards and Notecards?
The words Note Card and Greeting Card have become interchangeable, but there is actually a very small difference. Notecards are traditionally blank inside, while greeting cards typically have a message on the inside. Note cards also tend to be simpler with just an image on the front. They usually don’t have any embellishments. Greeting cards, on the other hand, can get very fancy. They can feature pop-ups, embellishments of all sorts, and many other fun features.
Sometimes notecards are called blank greeting cards, hence the interchangeability of the terms.
