Sunday, Jan 23, is National Handwriting Day. Here is an excerpt from an article posted on the AOL Shopping webpage.
"According to retail authority National Retail Federation (NRF), handwritten notes are making a strong comeback. Text and e-mail are the primary modes of communication between people, but a recent study of the greeting card and stationary market reveals that electronic communications are falling to the wayside as handwritten note cards re-emerge as the favored trend — or, "counter-trend." Yes, even with the convenience of Facebook.
Personalized, handwritten note cards are so much more meaningful to receive. It's a way for you to realize that you really do matter to your sender, as they have taken the time to think about and write out this message. With handwritten note cards, you can really connect with people on a personal level, helping yourself to build and maintain those warm and valuable relationships. Let someone know that they are a top priority.
With this head's up, take some time to practice your cursive and build up your stock of note cards. People's standards are higher today, so if you really want to impress and show people your sincerity, handwritten note cards are the way to go."
A packet of hand-stamped notecards makes a great gift for any occasion. Email me a card that you have made and I will be happy to feature it on this blog.
