Resolution #1











We are well into the new year, and I thought I'd share a possibly incriminating New Year's Resolution. You see, I grew up writing letters. I love writing letters. One of the major reasons that I got into design and letterpress printing was because I absolutely love making (and receiving) great stationery. I love the USPS, I love shopping for stamps—the whole she-bang. But in the last year I've absolutely slipped with any personal hand-written correspondence. 

I know—the shoemaker's shoes and all that. But here it is. SO, I'm outing myself and I've started a new campaign to encourage you, Dear Reader, to also start the year fresh with some hand-written notes. 

How can you benefit? Simply send a 42 cent stamp to me at the above address and you too can join in on the fun. Make sure you send along your address, too!

But what if I live in Holland & the 95 cent stamp I use to send letters from here to the States wouldn't be of any use to you?
I have a similar goal, and I've already posted 4 letters (to different people) this year! Yay! (And I joined the Letter Writer's Alliance, which is totally fun.)

I love shopping for stamps

Oh good gosh, this is me. It is fun, isn't it. When I travel I love to send myself a written not using a local stamp. I don't collect stamps but it's fun to com back from vacation and get a not from yourself with a stamp from another country.

Nice post... I was on the road for 6 weeks last summer and I wrote tons of letters to my wife and now I really miss the process. I am not really into shopping for stamps and stationary but I did enjoy using bad post cards and hotel stationary when I had been drinking ;) There is something so special about getting even the most trivial piece of personal mail these days.
