American-Made Stationery

I know, we all love smartphones and computers to connect with family and friends. Duh. Click, click, click, done!

But, whether it’s a “thank you” or “just because,” a card is fun to write and fun to receive. Sure, texts, emails and phone calls work for most things, but there’s a freedom and spontaneity that comes with writing on a piece of paper. Maybe that scares you (what do I write?? ahh!) but I find it’s best to let it flow. My tips: try writing in your speaking voice (talk aloud if you want!), start off by transcribing a quote or poem, or start with a story (a memory or recent event).

I look for fun Made in America cards everywhere – online, in local shops, bookstores, Tjmaxx, even the natural grocery store! Inspired to get pen to paper and let your friends and family know you’re thinking of them? Check out these designs!
