Stationery: Check Ya Penmanship

13 Mar

Welcome to our digital world. A world where tangible greetings have become a lost art.  Notecards, postcards, and stationery are almost unseen unless it’s a bday, wedding, or other monumental event. Text messages, emails, and “pokes” have replaced the subtle nuances of the handwritten message.  Shit, I can’t even remember the last time I got a number on a napkin passed down to me at a bar!

Sooo, this post is a digital shout out to the people with perfected penmanship. The people who take time to select a paper that speaks to their personal sense of style. The people who open and close 20+ cards in search of the one that sends the perfect midweek message. The people who mail their feelings as postmarked souvenirs. Thank you for embracing a lost art. Here’s to shoe boxes of memories underneath beds everywhere!
