number 01:: It’s so retro. There is a reason why most of these images are of old letters, it’s hard to find modern handwritten notes. But back in the day before email, that was all we had. So if you’re into vintage stuff, writing a letter is so vintage and so cool.
number 02:: It’s personal. When you send someone a letter, you have to pick out stationery, choose a pen and then you use something that only you have, your handwriting. It is a creative expression of who you are. Even if you change the type style in your emails, you’re not really coming close to the amount of personality a letter shows.
number 03:: It takes effort. Of course this is why we resort to emails. Sitting down to write a letter takes longer and it takes it longer to get around the world to the people you love. When you put forth effort, it shows the love you have for that person.
number 04:: Mail is fun. Don’t you love getting mail that isn’t a bill? I know I do.
number 05:: You can change the world. Sitting down and writing your elected officials is an important part of our society. I love how fun this letter is, it says “notice me!” Can you imagine a politician getting one of my envelopes in the mail?
