Three Reasons Why The Old-Fashioned Art Form is Still Worthwhile
Call me old-fashioned but I love handwritten notes.
I love mail. I love things I can pin to a bulletin board or display on a mantle. Pictures, postcards, notecards, tactile things that have a message. A message from someone saying thank you, I miss you, I love you, congratulations, happy birthday, happy anniversary. It’s just a little more intimate than an email or text. It’s something I can hold onto and share.
In this post I share three reasons why taking the time to put pen to paper is still worthwhile:
#1 No Other Medium Compares
When it comes to saying ‘thank you,’ you can’t beat the personal touch of a notecard. In the hierarchy of classy ways to express thanks:
- a text or email is on the bottom rung,
- a call definitely takes your thank you to another level,
- but a handwritten card is the gold standard in showing your gratitude.
#2 Make your Mark. And a Lasting Impression
I know a lot of people are self-conscious about their handwriting. It doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as it’s personal. Well, and legible!
#3 Cards Worth Keeping
It’s the thought that counts. If you take the time to write a note even on a plain card it will be remembered and appreciated. But if you’re inclined to choose a card with artwork on the face, your card may be worthy of displaying.
