Long Live Snail Mail

You know that great feeling when you open your mailbox to see a handwritten card specifically meant for you? Someone took the time and energy to write a message, buy a stamp, and put that card in the mail. For you. It’s such a great feeling, and a long lost art.
I don’t remember where I first heard about Punkpost, but they make sending a handwritten card easy and beautiful. And I promise you, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just love them! And I love them so much I reached out to their co-founder to get a discount code so you can all try it out.
First, download the app, then select a card from their vast collections library. Select a recipient and then compose your message. You can add confetti or a picture to be enclosed in the card as well. What happens next? A scriptist – yes, a real live person – uses the words you wrote to compose a work of art. Even the envelope is a work of art! Then it gets mailed to the recipient. You don’t even have to find a stamp in that stack of junk mail in the kitchen!
