You've saved and you've planned for this day for your whole adult life. Retirement marks a big life change. Instead of waking up early, fighting traffic, and punching a clock every day, you have the opportunity to sleep in, pursue hobbies, travel, play with your grandkids, and enjoy all that life has to offer. Whatever age you can retire at, you've reached a huge milestone that is cause for celebration.
Recognize your colleagues, friends and family members who are retiring with a retirement card filled with a heartfelt message. If you're looking for a card from the whole group, try a jumbo retirement card that's 16 inches tall—plenty of space for everyone on the team to write a personal note, and large enough for the retiree to proudly display. Are you looking for ideas for what to write in your retirement card? Make the transition easier by providing a laugh with a funny retirement card or if you've been there, done that, perhaps a few inspirational words about this momentous occasion and all the positives that will follow in coming years. Congratulate them on their next chapter and thank them for their years of dedication and service for your organization.
If you live far away and can't be there in person to celebrate their retirement, send a card with a handwritten message using our Sign and Send service—just type your message, and we'll have a real person handwrite it on the card, plus stamp and mail it for you! Hallmark also offers unique retirement gift ideas, both practical and sentimental, like picture frames, mugs and desk accessories, as well as guest books that are perfect for capturing well wishes at a retirement party.
