Today’s most excellently packaged missive comes from fellow epistolary lover Barb Marshall of


It reads:

Dear Sarah, Just had to drop you a note and say I love your letter-writing campaign. I’m a huge advocate of encouraging people to put pen to paper and send a piece of ‘real mail.’ It would seem that we both share the same view?

So lovely to follow you on Twitter and The Paper Chronicles. Love it! Enclosed are some very funky postcards made by a talent here in my hometown for you to give away.

Thanks for all you are doing; a piece of handwritten mail can mean so much to someone. Warm regards, Barb Barshall @ritewhileucan

Thank you so much for writing in, Barb, and I love  these silkscreened postcards from Post Club! That is a limited edition postcard service — the first postcard service I’ve come across, actually, out of Calgary. This set of seven is most impressive!


I think these flat cards, from Lisa & the creative team at Step Brightly in Oak Park, Illinois, are a really good fit and I suspect Barb will really enjoy using them. This is a set of six with two of each design.  Thanks again for this great donation!
