CLEVELAND, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The only thing better than receiving an unexpected greeting card is sending an unexpected greeting card. Taking the time to let someone know you're thinking of them is a simple act, but the feeling of knowing you've made the other person's day with that kind gesture is truly special. And today there is no better way to make that special connection than by visiting the American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) card aisle, which always has the perfect way to share a simple hello, send warm wishes, or even pass along a joke that you know will put a smile on their face.

With the fall season upon us, everyone's schedules will soon begin filling up with the rush of autumn activities. This busy time can make it challenging to keep in contact with family and friends, many of which are often dealing with the same commitments themselves. Taking a few moments to send a short note and thoughtful card not only makes sure that the most important people in your life know you're thinking of them, it can also be a great break from ever mounting to-do lists and outdoor chores.  

In addition to offering a welcome means of staying in touch (and grounded) the card aisle is also a convenient one-stop source for keeping up with new acquaintances. From meeting new parents and friends as the school year begins to the arrival of new colleagues at work, there's no better way to break the ice than with a fun card.

Whether you want to connect, show support, celebrate new acquaintances, or simply share a joke you know only one other person could appreciate as much as you, you'll always find the perfect card with American Greetings.
