I love receiving letters. It’s such an old fashioned romantic gesture. In the Victorian era stationary was an important part of social etiquette and your choice of personalized stationary was an important reflection of your style and personality.
I’m determined to bring it back! As someone with a bi-coastal family (north coast and west coast) I make a lot of phone calls to stay in touch. Why not start sending a monthly letter instead? Wouldn’t it brighten your day to come home to find a “just thinking about you” note in the mailbox? Small gestures often have the biggest impact. And with the USPS constantly wowing me with their gorgeous new stamps (my favorites right now are the Songbirds, Hudson River School and Vintage Circus collections) you can easily doll up the outside of the envelope just by adding your postage.
Minted let me pick out a fresh set of personalized stationary to kick-start my new letter writing campaign. I’ve used Minted before for our holiday cards and was overjoyed to work with them again. Their customer service is outstanding and they have an amazing community of artists and designers.
After much consideration i selected Wild Bellflowers in sunny yellow with a full bleed pattern on the back. I adore the hand drawn botanical design and the soft yellow and gray color scheme. The back adds so much impact and looks adorable peeking out of the envelope. I can’t say enough about the quality. The standard paper is heavy and has a wonderful texture for writing. The print quality is top notch and all stationary comes in a Minted box to keep them safe.
Here are some more picks that get the Lost & Fawned seal of approval…
