These days, our mailboxes are often filled with bills, advertisements, and other unwanted mail, so when you open your’s to find a beautiful handwritten letter from someone you love, it’s a truly special feeling! The art of snail mail is a tradition that we believe should live on forever, even as the world becomes more and more digital. Sending a card or letter to a loved one makes them feel good. It shows that you took the time out of your day to sit down, and put your pen to paper. But snail mail isn’t about just sending a letter, it’s an art form all of its own!
There are so many fun ways to dress up your correspondence, whether it be return address stamps, craft stamps, washi tape, stickers, glitters, or even just by choosing the perfect stationery. And thanks to the U.S. Postal Service, there’s now an entire month dedicated to the beautiful art of letter writing! Every April is National Letter Writing Month, so put down your cell phones, laptops, and iPads, and pick up your favorite pens and stationery, and start writing!
Since we know the power of letter writing is so real, we always love to do a little something special every April to celebrate this wonderful initiative! Not only will we be celebrating with great sales on address stamps, stationery, and everything you need to send your snail mail, we’re also hosting a giveaway! We know there’s a whole community out there that would love to win some new letter writing supplies, and we believe if everyone makes their own small contribution to this amazing cause, the beautiful art of snail mail will live on forever and ever!
