April is National Card and Letter Writing Month!


In 2001, the U.S. Postal Service decided to expand on their week-long celebration of the written letter by designating April as National Card and Letter Writing Month, noting that, “unlike other communications, card and letter writing is timeless, personal, and immediately tangible”. While the everyday reliance on texts and emails may leave our penmanship a little rusty, this month is a perfect opportunity to break out some stationery and put our thoughts, affections, thanks and well wishes on paper. Whether you indulge in lovely monogrammed notes, opt for a blank birthday card and tap your muse for the perfect sentiment or just slip a whimsical postcard in the mail to a friend, take the time this month to put pen to paper.


And, don’t forget to buy stamps!
