We live in a world where it is impossible to buy stationery anymore, and where the two most recent generations of youngsters do not know what handwriting is. Yes, writing is a lost art form, one which is going the way of the dodo. If you are past age twenty, you may still be one of those who knows how to write a letter by hand. If you want to keep this rare art form alive, our stationery products can help.
The Stationery Paper
Crisp sheets of decorated paper pulled from a stationery box; you do not see that every day. We create the perfect stationery paper with your choice of colors, designs, and even your company logo and letterhead, should you so desire. If you want to use the paper for more personal letters, you can skip the logo and letterhead and just place your name and address, pre-stamped, in the upper righthand corner where it is supposed to go. All you have to do is date the letter and begin your salutations below.
The Matching Envelopes
Stationery sets done right have always had matching envelopes. These matching envelopes for your chosen stationery are as colorful and as attractive as the paper you have chosen. When you send a personal or business letter on this stationery and in these envelopes, people take notice. They want to open your letters and read the hand-written notes inside. It means you took the time, thought, and energy needed to compose something of meaning, just for the recipient.
Additionally, if you use the stationery and matching envelopes for business purposes, we can make sure your logo is on both the heads of the paper and on the exterior of the envelopes. Everything is perfectly stamped, inked, and clear. Your recipients will know exactly what company it is from, and what they may expect in the body of the letter.
Writing the Letter
If you have decent penmanship, writing a letter yourself is much more personable. Begin with a formal greeting if you are addressing customers, clients or business partners. Informal greetings are reserved for personal relationships, friends, and family. Then write the body of the letter.
The body of the letter should detail the main reason for making contact, as well as why you chose to write rather than call, text or email. Choose a reason that sounds believable, and one that you personally believe. A business letter discusses business that you wish to conduct with the recipient, while personal letters can talk about anything you want to mention to the reader. Keep things light, professional (if applicable), and reasonably short (unless you are writing a personal letter to someone you have not seen or spoken to in a while).
Always sign your name in ink. Skip the ink stamped version of your written name. The personally signed letter is always more impressive, regardless of who the recipient is.
Buying Sets or Buying a la Carte
We can package stationery for you so that it comes in a nice, organized, and orderly gift box. If you would prefer to order your paper and your envelopes separately, our company can do that too. Once you become accustomed to letter writing by hand, you may find that you use more sheets of stationery paper and fewer envelopes. That is normal and you can always buy more.
