It's exciting to spy a small spot of a brightly colored edge when you open the mailbox. You know it can't be from bill…but rather, you know it's a small some kind of wonderful from somebody totally awesome! Having the capabilities to send a message across the world or to someone in the same room in a matter of seconds is mind blowing, but there is no substitute for a handwritten message.
It has been noted that writing a letter to your local politician or state leader speaks volumes in its impact than if you send an email. In the science world, writing by hand has been studied and shown that the use of our hands in the act of moving as we write letters, plays a role in learning, language, and cognitive development, something that just doesn't get the same kick when we text or type.
For me, letters started at a young age with thank you's for gifts received and short hello's paired with pictures to loved ones. I love receiving real snail mail! It feels awesome! and it's fun to post them up on the fridge. What is even better is when you send off a brightly colored surprise to someone else - who doesn't like making somebodies day. The main inspiration for starting this snail mail club comes from my letter communications with my 94-year old grandpa. The information we share in letters is a whole other world than short talks on the phone. Come join the club or sign up a loved one as a gift.
Club members will receive:
4 packages of hand pressed, original postcards and folded cards over the course of a year.
An original woodcut print exclusive to club members
An occasional extra goodie or two from the letterpress studio
$145.00 (includes shipping)
