What the World Needs Now...

According to an article in the New York Times this week, what the world needs now is more handwritten cards and letters: We Could All Use a Little Snail Mail Right Now

The article expresses everything we feel as stationers! Handwriting is such a physical reminder of a person and email just can’t capture this. The average American household receives just 10 pieces of personal mail per year. This makes getting a note in the mail even more meaningful and taking the time to write and send a note feels good too.

The Times article also notes that David Sedaris, one of our favorite writers, sends handwritten thank you notes.

“I just feel like it’s classy to do it with real mail,” he said. “It’s too easy to do it on email. And it also doesn’t mean as much.” Not to mention, he added, “It’s nice to be thought of as classy.”

Our feelings exactly!
