Antique Postage Stamps, $.10 each.
With Valentine's Day and Christmas behind us, it may seem like you have little reason to write a card. There are birthdays on the horizon sure, and Mother's Day will be here before you know it, but allow your friends at Twosided and Foursided to give you this friendly reminder: You don't ever need a reason to mail a card.
Have you ever opened your mailbox and found a card unexpectedly staring you in the face? What about coming home to find an envelope with your name on it sitting on the counter? How did it make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? Well, for the cost of a card - which is far less than the cost of a meal, a drink, or most other tokens - you can make someone's day. The best part? You don't even have to be there to do it.
That $.44 (or less if you send a postcard, more if you need your mail to travel across an ocean) can get your special note anywhere it needs to go. Don't feel daunted by the task, you don't need to write a novel - a funny or artful card with a "Hope you are well" or, "This made me think of you" will do the trick just fine.
We love that you read our blog, friend us on Facebook, and enjoy our Twitter Tweets, but don't underestimate the connections to be made in the analog world as well. Allow us to challenge you, dearest Foursided and Twosided fans, to step away from the computer for just a moment and write that card. Carve out a little time from your day to make someone else's day with a personal note just for the fun of it. You won't be sorry you did, and who knows, with a little luck, someone just might return the favor.
