Stationary Subscription Service

Believe it or not, handwriting isn’t dead. In fact, in many circles it is still as popular as it ever was. But with the advent of the Internet and everything that has come along with it, handwriting your friends a note has fallen a bit by the wayside. That doesn’t mean, however, that it isn’t still a fun or good thing to do from time to time. Today we’re going to talk about why friends love handwritten notes, and why you should consider subscribing to a stationary subscription service.

It’s Personal

Everyone gets emails. Most of them either get junked or are only paid attention to for a few seconds and discarded. How many times have you spent time composing an email to a friend only to get a reply back that consists of “Yup” or “See you then?” Email is great, but it isn’t conducive to meaningful communication.

Using a stationary subscription service to send personalized and handwritten notes to your friends is way more personal. Your friends will notice that you took the time, and will appreciate it. More than that, though, they will likely respond in kind. That means you’ll have meaningful communication, and that’s a useful and memorable thing.

It Creates Memories

Nobody remembers that email you sent them two years ago, but they do remember that time you set down to write them a note after their grandfather died. These things matter, and they will be remembered, much more so than if you had only sent a few lines in an email.

More than that, though, handwritten notes are great for nostalgia purposes. People will store these notes in their papers for years, and then will pull them out to remember you by when they need a reminder of why they are your friend.

It Means More

Handwriting (and doing it neatly and intelligently) takes time. Time means something to everyone, and because you took the time to send a handwritten note, the note will mean more to the friend who received it. Think about how you would feel in this situation. What would mean more to you, a brief email or a handwritten note? If you said the handwritten note, your friends will probably feel the same way.

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, it’s all about style. Your friends like to hear from you, and one of the most stylish ways of doing that, even in this day and age, is sending a handwritten note. If you do this often you should consider subscribing to a stationary subscription service so you always have a personalized way of sending your notes.
