I am big believer in stationery (obviously), but even more so in using it. It breaks my heart to think of all these gorgeous papers languishing in desk drawers all over the country, just sitting there gathering dust, neglected and forgotten, borderline abused really, when they could be transmitting good and perfectly stylish tidings.

So here is a way to just do that — and possibly even win some more. It’s simple: Just write me on it. It can be on any sort of stationery: a correspondence card, a folded note, a greeting card, even a sheet of notebook paper. Tell me what the stationery is, who makes it, where you got it —as well as any other details you’d care to share (I am nosy and really want to know these things). Then sign your name and you’re all done!

Stamp it and mail it to me here: P.O. Box 22133, Beachwood, Ohio 44122. Please be sure to include your mailing address, since the first letter I get will be the proud owner of this sunny Hello Note Card set, letterpressed with love on cotton paper with soy-based ink by delphineStudio in Charleston, South Carolina. I will be photographing the winner, as well as any others I receive.

So slowly back away from your monitor, phone or tablet, and have fun with some old-fashioned correspondence! I can’t wait to see what treasures my brand-new post office box delivers in the coming days and weeks.
