Can we take a moment to talk about the lost art of sending a handwritten note?
Remember the days of snail mail, and how excited we would be to get an envelope with $20 from grandma for our birthday? Or even a simple letter from a friend updating you on their life? I remember writing notes with other military kids like myself as a youngster and it was great.
Truthfully it’s something I miss and long for.
So given any opportunity to not only write a letter, but promote sending one…it makes my heart skip a beat.
Whether you are a seller on Poshmark, or a business owner, there is something magical about taking time to just write. Letting someone know you’re thinking about them, or grateful for them is powerful.
I recently designed some note and thank you cards for friend and client, Dr. Ashitey. This was such a serotonin boost for me because it combined all of my favorite things: design, paper selection, and letter writing. We chose an elevated designer trifecta paper with accented edges.
But if you’re not sure where to begin, just write a letter to a friend. It doesn’t have to be on fancy card-stock or stationary.
And if you are looking to up your game, especially as a blogger or business owner, here are some tips for success:
- Be authentic
- You can never go wrong being you. The right people will love you for it
- Keep it simple
- You don’t need to have professional imagery or an elaborate design
- Let the paper, and what’s written on it speak for itself
For my Poshmark thank you cards I have my blog branding on them in small typeface, and the words “thank you.” Super simple, but a hit with buyers.
And I recommend a similar approach for businesses, especially small businesses.
In this day and age when people could go anywhere to shop, try and show them extra love and gratitude.
