When’s the last time you sent a handwritten letter to someone? Perhaps a thank you card? How about catching up with an old pen pal?

The time of stationery has come and gone: its popularity has hit a brick wall. Since technology has advanced, we have strayed from the old ways of communication, leaving postage stamps rotting away in desk drawers for years to come. Sometimes bills require the occasional stamp, but penmanship has reached a standstill since the decline of writing letters. We live in a bustling metropolis full of more important things than scribbling out our thoughts to our peers.

What’s cool about writing a letter to someone is taking the time to think about someone and sharing a special moment in life with them. Snail mail can make a comeback, because there’s hardly anything more wonderful than to send someone a piece of your heart. So take a moment to let pen meet paper and let your imagination soar.
