This Father's Day, which is June 20, might be your first opportunity to safely hug your dad — or whoever has had a meaningful role in your upbringing — in quite a while. Or, it might still look a little different, with a video call or a small backyard barbecue. Either way, a handwritten card, delivered in person or sent in the mail, will mean more than ever.

Check out these funny, beautiful and intricate Father's Day cards for all the father figures in your life. And if you don't have stamps? No worries: There are two ways you can get mail out without leaving the house. First, you can order stamps from the Postal Service's website, like these cool, new Star Wars stamps. Second, you can order cards from Postable, which will print your message in a card and send it directly to the recipient.

Some independent stationery stores and card companies, including those who sell on Etsy, may also be willing to hand-write notes for you for an extra fee if you reach out directly to ask.
