How to use the cards

There are so many great ways to include affirmation cards into everyday!

Create a beautiful morning or night time ritual for both yourself and your child by shuffling the card and asking “what is my special message right now?”

Surround them and yourself with constant reminders as repetition and frequency is critical. We all know the power of repetition when building new habits. Some great ideas for ding this is:

We want the next generation to have an unwavering sense of self love and self worth

By encouraging our children to create their own inner self belief, self love and learn positive self talk, our children will develop healthy mental and emotional pathways.

These foundation will then carry though life; helping our children to discover their own self confidence, self love and self acceptance for the truly unique and precious souls that they are.

No one will ever influence your child’s life to the extent that their own thoughts will influence them. By teaching them a better way to talk to themselves, you’ll help themlive their lives with a feeling of empowerment, success, inner peace, self acceptance and happiness.

Affirmation card can help with:

  • Feelings of anxiety
    Anxiety is a common feeling for many children, particularly as they grapple with the new experiences of growing up. A set of kids’ affirmation cards can assist them with coping with these feelings more effectively. It’s important they feel safe and protected.
  • Developing resilience to bullying
    Unfortunately, bullying is something that most of us will experience at some point in our lives. By being equipped with tools to develop resilience, we can not only stand up for ourselves, but overcome bullies in the process. 
  • Accepting and forgiving mistakes
    We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. Accordingly, we could all do with learning to forgive both others and ourselves a little more. 
  • Improving low self-esteem
    Though the causes behind low self-esteem are often complex, they can stem from a lack of positive reinforcement. Tools such as kids’ affirmation cards can be instrumental in helping provide this much-needed uplifting feedback.  
  • Creating positive self-talk
    The way we talk to ourselves about ourselves is hugely influential on the way we feel — and in turn, how we approach life. Developing positive self-talk is a key skill that all children should develop. “Everything is Awesome”
  • Increasing confidence
    Equip your kids with the ability to tackle new challenges fearlessly.
    “I trust my inner wisdom” or “I am brave and strong!”
  • Developing a growth mindset and positive belief systems
    A positive mindset can make a huge difference in how your child approaches the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune that will inevitably occur throughout life. Being equipped to tackle challenges positively is essential for all sorts of areas of life. “I am confident and believe in myself”
  • Encouraging perseverance
    If at first, we don’t succeed — try, try again! I never give up on myself or my dreams. “I reach for the STARS!”
  • Friendship and kindness
    Making friends, learning kindness, compassion,and forgiveness, builds positive relationships and is an essential part of everyone’s life. The younger we learn to do this — and demonstrate kindness along the way — is critical.

What Our Customers Are Saying!

Little girl holding an affirmation card

Kosdown Printing – Port Melbourne, Victoria, has been my only choice for all Artwork and Printing of my Packaging for six years. The accuracy, service and turnaround time is essential for my Company to run smoothly and meet required deadlines. This along with the friendly family culture is what keeps my loyalty with them. 
Everything is completed on the premises.

Supporting local business is a top priority

Kosdown is not a franchisee, or part of a chain or multinational organisation. We’ve never been bought or sold, having been continuously owned and run by the Downie family since 1982. We are not a shopfront which outsources all its work to others: we have a real factory with real workers!
In setting the 3-5 year direction of the company, we have recently articulated the six core Kosdown values that inform our dedication to deliver.

Assured – we live by our deadlines
Forward-looking – embracing next generation technology
Crafted – detail defines us
Imaginative – we think beyond just ink
Transparent – openly sharing know-how and true value
Sustainable – the future belongs to all of us

All strategic decisions must align with these Kosdown values. For example, Kosdown’s commitment to sustainability, transparency and looking-forward underpin the company’s plan to employ an additional three Printing and Graphic Arts apprentices by 2025. These apprentices, actively sought from diverse backgrounds, will not only receive training in traditional offset printing but will have equal instruction on emerging digital technologies. Our most recent trade-qualified apprentice is now the manager of Kosdown’s large-format digital production and has introduced new capabilities to the company including laser-cutting and product prototyping. Kosdown understands the wholistic benefits of investing in the education of the next generation of workers.

Current difficulties in the international supply chain supports Kosdown’s strategic directive to actively privilege Australian manufacturing. For the last decade, Kosdown has sought ways to support local manufacturing. This takes many forms beyond the financial, including educating customers on Australian-made papers and substrates, partnering with paper house Spicers to commission the bulk production of FSC-certified Australian-made paper and board for several large projects, and working with local manufacturer Corex on a closed-loop corflute.

Our Kiddies Affirmation Kards are designed to help children of all ages to process their feelings in a constructive way, build healthy self-esteem and learn self-care. Starting conversations between siblings, parents, friends and family.

We are firm believers that having positive self-esteem can increase overall confidence, and help encourage your children to tackle life in a positive manner. By learning positive self-talk and self-encouragement skills, they’ll be better equipped to handle the various challenges that life throws at them. Resilience is an excellent quality for anyone to have, and by helping instil it during childhood, they’ll be in a better position to carry it into adulthood.

No — Oracle cards, Tarot cards, and other similar items are used to divine the future, better understand your present circumstances, and put yourself in touch with some form of spirituality. They’re explicitly supernatural in their outlook, though people have lots of different feelings about their efficacy! 

By contrast, affirmation cards for kids are designed to reinforce their self-esteem, practice self-care and enable children to set positive goals for themselves. They’re a non-denominational, motivational tool that is designed to be used by any family — whether religious, spiritual or secular.

The Kiddies Affirmation Kards designed by us are made from durable cardboard, which is then laminated to enhance its longevity. They are certified Australian Made & Owned. They also come in a tough cardboard box for storage, which is available in four different colours — Red, Yellow, Blue and Pink.

Yes. Kiddies Affirmation Kards are designed to be used by children ranging from age 4 through to early teens — so it’s important that they are able to stand up to consistent wear and tear. They’re made of durable cardboard and laminated to ensure that they’ll last for many years to come.

The cards are laminated, so they’re water-resistant and can stand up to the occasional spill. We suggest wiping them off with a soft cloth if they’re caught in any drink-related accidents. However, we wouldn’t recommend immersing them directly in water; this may undermine the integrity of the lamination and cause damage to the cards themselves.
