Did you know that April is National letter writing month? Let's all make a goal to write actual letters to the people that matter in our life. Something that they can keep and cherish, something so un-like a text message or email.
There is something very special about receiving actual mail in your mailbox. The feeling of bringing it in, carefully opening it and hanging onto every last word that the sender wrote. It's an experience. Something that should be celebrated and not lost.
The folks over at 2 of our favorite stationery companies, Egg Press and Hello!Lucky think so too. They're actually sending out cards so that people can get their Write On! How cool is that? (See cards above). A note from them about their campaign:
"In an effort to connect more with our friends and loved ones and to create better letter writing habits Egg Press, along with our friends at Hello!Lucky, has decided to engage in a letter writing campaign called WRITEON for the month of April. We're each endeavoring to write 30 letters to 30 people in 30 days. And as it happens this project coincides with National Letter Writing Month. We hope you will join us! To that end we have created this special WRITEON Letter Writing Kit containing 4 letterpress printed cards - 2 from Egg Press and 2 from Hello!Lucky - and we are giving out a limited number of these kits for free. Each card will have instructions on the back that tell how each recipient can receive their own free kits. And on and on. We hope to see an ever-increasing web of connectedness and good feelings. We invite everyone to share their letter-writing adventures online (#WRITE_ON) and to follow us on Instagram and Facebook where we will be sharing letter writing ideas."
We're 100% behind them and will be sharing our own letter writing adventures in the month of April via Instagram as well (#WRITE_ON)! To receive their free kit, simply fill out the form given here.
Want to pen pal with us? We'd love to hear from you and see all of your lovely lettering progress first hand! Plus, we had so much fun during our holiday card exchange! If we get a card from you, we'll send one along in return.

Add a smile to someone you love and send them some happy mail the old fashioned way! We're not sure about you...but this is making us very excited to check our mailboxes come April!
