Say hello with a pack of cards
A really simple way to stay connected with those close to you is to create a personalised photo card. Ours come in packs of ten, so they’re a great way to send love to a group of friends or even the whole family. We’ve got a choice of double or single-sided cards, and once you’ve selected the photo you want to use and ordered the cards, all you need to do is add your own personalised message when they arrive. Then it’s time to post them out to your nearest and dearest. What a thoughtful way to stay in touch. To create your own photo cards, just follow these three simple steps:
1 – Add a photo to a card design
2 – Click order
3 – Add your own message and post them out
Connect on key dates
It’s easy just to ‘like’ that it’s someone’s birthday or leave a short comment for them on social media but that lacks the personal touch. Make sure to add your favourite people’s birthdays into your calendar so you get an alert to contact them on their big day. Taking the time out to give them a call, video message, or even simply sending them a card will mean so much to them. Of course, it doesn’t have to just be birthdays – make sure to save the dates of anniversaries, important dates, or even events happening in the world that you think would be of interest to particular friends. Any excuse to get in touch is a great excuse.
1 – Find out all the key dates
2 – Add them to your phone calendar
3 – Celebrate each one with something special
Let’s do lunch
When you can’t meet your best friends for lunch in person, why not arrange a video lunch? When you’re missing the chats, banter and fun of a group lunch with your closest contacts, get them all to dial into a video chat while you eat your meals remotely. Maybe send them all a menu so they can choose what to make, almost as if you’d met in restaurant. It’s a fantastic way to keep in touch with friends and will make you feel like you’re all in the same room. The three easy steps to set this up are:
1 – Get the gang on board
2 – Arrange a time and date
3 – All dial in and have a great time
Design a photo book
Taking some time out to relive memories by going through old photos is always a great use of time. Not only is it a relaxing thing to do, it can certainly put a smile on your face.

It’s really easy with bonusprint, and a lot of fun to delve through your archives, but it also makes a brilliant gift to send to friends and family. Once you’ve designed it, you can print as many as you like and even send digital copies instantly to your closest contacts. If you’re unsure how to create your book, then our bonusprint Smart Assistant will help you make it in minutes. Making a photo book with bonusprint really is this simple

It’s good to talk
Even though we can send text chats via all kinds of messaging services and social media, picking up the phone for a good talk is still one of the best feelings. Hearing your friends and families voices can be such a tonic when you’ve not been able to see them for a while. It sounds like a very simple way to stay connected, and that’s because it is. Just pick up the phone, dial the number and have a wonderful chat. The person on the other end of the line will be delighted to hear from you.
1 – Pick up the phone
2 – Have a good chat
