We live in the age of technology, and it’s easier than ever to stay in touch, yet we’re more out of touch than ever; texts go ignored, e-mails go unanswered, and a voicemail is like screaming into the void.
Sending mail is a lost art; we’ve stopped sending tokens of love and started dreading the pile of bills in the mail. Getting mail makes everyone feel good, but in case that’s not enough, here’s 5 more reasons…
Show Off Your Penmanship
Got impossibly neat handwriting? Need a use for that calligraphy course Groupon your friend insisted you buy? Show off your incredible skills with a physical card that’s beautifully crafted on the outside, and gracefully noted on the inside. Even with the technological convenience of Gift In Time, you still send a physical card with your own handwriting, so the art is not lost! Check out all the beautiful cards you can write with your own handwriting!
Creates A Memento That Lasts Forever
Even if you’re able to save a text message forever, why would you want to? Bring a smile to someone’s face on a rainy day when they sort through old letters and cards to find your beautiful piece of art, scrawled with a thoughtful note. Or mark a special occasion with a lovely token like this city skyline mug from Alice In Montreal.
You’ll Be Remembered

Not only would you appreciate the heck out of it, but wouldn’t you remember someone who made this old-world gesture? It’s a sure-fire way to stand out among all the “thx” messages of the world.
Brightens Someone’s Day
Beautiful artwork and genuine thought are perfectly communicated in a card to brighten your loved one’s day, but you can up the ante with a small gift as well! Including a little memento means that one day and that one note of encouragement can be remembered on all the hard days that may lie ahead.
Strengthens Your Relationship
Just like sending a personal touch creates a memorable experience, showing that you’re thinking of someone creates and fortifies a bond with a close friend or loved one. It’s a great way to send any message from building bridges to mending fences. It’s also the perfect reason to send the perfect gift for an upcoming birthday, anniversary, or “just because”…
