Don’t you just love getting real mail – not bills, not ads, and not those promotions that come in hopeful envelopes with what looks like a real stamp and a computer-generated font that might just be a friend’s handwriting? Very few people still receive real mail, and it’s rarity makes it all the more special.
I try to make it a point to send real mail on a regular basis. While a beautifully written personal note is genuine show of true hospitality and kindness, let’s face it – few of us have ( or will take) the time for that and it’s not so graceful when your handwriting is worse than a toddlers (no offense to the toddler write better than me). I have a thing for beautiful notecards, but I often feel like I am defacing them with my chicken scratch.
My solution = Printables
There are tons of beautiful options on Etsy and Pinterest in every shape and size for every occasion imaginable. With some pre-planning, these can be an amazing option. If you are like me though, you think of it at the last-minute and find yourself missing an important element. For me, it’s usually the correct size envelope, and I detest sending a cute card in an ill-fitting envelope. Since I always seem to have the plain old white business sized envelopes (#10 if you want to get technical) on hand, I design my printables to print 3 on a letter size piece of paper or card stock. They fit nicely, require no special materials and still allow you adequate room on the back to add a hand-written message if you choose.
