“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.”
I hope that you’ve caught the best of this year end holiday love bug. It’s my absolute favourite time of the year!
The streets are aglow, malls are decked out in huge luminous christmas trees (Oh I do love the smell of a real pine tree), gifts, messages of love & hope…
In this joyous season of family & friends’ gatherings, amidst the party planning & feasts, it it is easy to let slid the importance of a heart felt invitation. In today’s digital age, we’ve replaced letters, company holiday cards to a simple email or Whatsapp message. It seems nobody has the time to make a personal card these days.
There’s something timeless & magical about receiving an actual invitation. Maybe it’s the sweet sandalwood smell of letterpress cards, or the tactile feel of embossed words, receiving an invitation invokes a feeling of warmth. It meant the sender has taken time to send out a card to you, a way to send his/her love in words.
What’s amazing is that tradition & modern day technology can marry to help you connect with your loved ones. That’s what Paperless Post desires to do – innovating on the timeless tradition of fine paper with seamless technology. You choose from one of their gorgeous card designs, (which includes kate spade new york, Oscar de la Renta, Jonathan Adler, and John Derian) and Paperless Post will help you print & post the cards out – online or offline!
Speaking of traditions, my Husband decided to do an annual handwritten card for both our boys. So that when they are older, they can read up on how much we love them. 😛 There’s also the tradition of gift wrapping, doing nativity crafts, hanging up the christmas tree & giving to the less fortunate.
