The Importance of Stationery

Everyone needs stationery. The warmth of a hand written note cannot be matched by email. And even though modern etiquette dictates a thank you email can be appropriate, I always prefer to write such a sentiment on stationery.

Getting an actual piece of mail is rare these days. Most of us are inundated with catalogs, bills and solicitous fliers. So imagine receiving a note on personalized stationery from a friend or family member. That conveys a type of care and thoughtfulness that is hard to find anywhere else.

So before you make a quick call, send a text or an email. Think about delivering your message in a different way. Think about sitting down, leaning in and hand writing a note on stationery. I think you'll feel that you've conveyed your message more effectively and that your recipient will feel just a little more special.

Altho I receive and send most of my communication by email, twice in the last couple of months I've received hand-written letters from two wonderful friends~what a day brightener!

I 100% agree with your posts today and yesterday. These are all about showing others you care and giving them respect. I think it's so important for us to keep civility and a good handwritten note important in this "me" generation. I appreciate your trying!
