There’s no denying it, that feeling you get when you open up the letterbox and see familiar handwriting on an envelope. It’s part nostalgia, it’s part sentiment. However, the days of getting handwritten letters in the mail are becoming fewer and fewer. Ink on paper is being replaced by text messages and emails. Sure, these mediums are quick and the recipient gets your sentimental words almost instantly, but it doesn’t evoke the same feelings as when you see your friends, your parents, your Aunts etc. handwriting on a piece of paper. We see one another in our handwriting.
“A handwritten note is like dining by candlelight instead of flicking on the lights, like making a gift instead of ordering a product, like taking a walk instead of driving.”
