Sending flowers is one of the sweetest ways to express your feelings. They apologize for hurt feelings, comfort those in sorrow, brighten the day of someone who is ill and bring joy to heart of lovers everywhere.
The international flower delivery industry has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent decades, thanks to nearly instant communication advances. Thanks to this growth, FTD and 1800flowers.com have edged out nearly all competitors.
FTD (Florists’ Telegraph Delivery) is the brainchild of fifteen American florists, founded in 1910 with the intention of connecting retail florists all across the country. In this way, people could send flowers to loved ones no matter where they lived. As the business grew and expanded its reach, its name changed to Florists Transworld Delivery to reflect its global reach.
On the other hand, 1800flowers.com was born out of Jim McCann’s retail florist shop in New York in the year 1986. It was to become FTD’s main competitor when 1-800-flowers went online in 1992.
Both of these international flower delivery sites render flower-and-specialty-gift-shipping service at their best that would meet every flower-sender’s goal, with a heap of professionalism and customer satisfaction.
1800flowers.com and FTD offer a relaxed, easy shopping experience when ordering flowers or gifts for delivery. You can access their online catalogs to choose a floral arrangement, plant or gift and either place your order through the website or by telephone.
With FTD & 1-800-Flowers, you can rest assured that you are sending only the freshest flowers at the fastest time possible, and they do this by organizing a network of florists worldwide. At most, your gift will reach your recipient’s door the next day, but they also do have same-day delivery service.
Both 1800flowers.com and FTD have exacting standards for the florist shops in their networks. Each delivery is professionally arranged and packaged attractively. You can order via telephone or internet and know that your gift will be the finest available anywhere.
Across generations, ways of sending love to one’s family and friends have significantly changed – something which one would, of course, credit to the rapidly developing technology and system of communication.
After a hundred years of international flower delivery services, FTD clings to the founding principles it is so proud of-offering the best flowers and fast delivery while keeping prices competitive. 1800flowers.com, although a younger business than FTD, also takes pride in the quality of their flowers and their customer service.
With all the international flower delivery sites that have popped up on the internet, we have all been able to reach out and interact with loved ones. We can express our feelings with just a few keystrokes or a phone call and brighten someone’s day or comfort them in time of need.
And quite surely, this generation has even made relationships separated by oceans possible – with the help of flowers and international flower delivery services.
