3 Tips for National Letter Writing Month

31 Mar

April is National Card & Letter Writing Month

April is National Letter Writing Month

Did you know the United States Postal Service designated April as National Letter Writing Month in 2001? They want to raise awareness of the importance of writing cards and handwritten letters. We think it’s a great time to refresh your stationery, update your address book, get out your favorite pen(s) and a few sheets of stamps to encourage you to write some handwritten notes. Here are our Top 3 tips to getting ready for National Letter Writing Month!

1. Make your list

Thinking about who to write? Try thinking of people you can write a letter to and why. Maybe you had a wonderful professor in college who you still appreciate to this day. How about your favorite aunt from childhood who would love to hear from you? Or maybe your best friend who you lost touch with but would love to connect with again. You can write and let them know how much they mean to you and how you’d love to stay in touch.

2. Get your supplies together

Writing letters isn’t too complicated, but let’s make sure you have what you need to get started! First you’ll need stationery to write your letters. We have personalized stationery that you can use not only for National Letter Writing Month but for any time of year. I would recommend a good writing pen to make writing letters easier. Next, you’ll need stamps and while at the USPS, ask for their current stamp selections to pick the prettiest ones. You may want to consider an address stamper to make it easier for addressing. Or, you can choose return address on your envelopes or address labels.

3. Write!

Now comes the fun part! Once you have your list and your supplies, it’s time to truly celebrate National Letter Writing Month with actual handwritten letters. For some of us, we’ve gotten so used to emails and texts that it may feel weird to write an actual letter. That’s ok! Try practicing on some scrap paper first to get back in the swing of things. You may be stumped on what to write, but here are some letter-writing prompts to help you get started:

  • What reminded you of this person recently?
  • Talk about your favorite memory with this person and go into a few details of why it’s your favorite memory
  • List things you love about this person
  • Thank them for something they did for you
  • Tell them how they’ve shaped who you are today

I am sure reading these will help you get the idea of what to write. Whether your letter is short or longer, it’s the thought that counts!  We all love getting a handwritten letter in the mail!

Happy Letter Writing!

Are you a fan of the hit show Yellowstone?  The Dutton Ranch has sure mesmerized fans and garnered a cult following.  The romance between Rip and Beth, the memorable quotes from Beth Dutton, the “train station” and so much more.  If anything, the show has inspired an appreciation of the hard work that goes into maintaining a ranch.  And also the cowboys and rodeos.  We were so inspired that we created an entire collection of personalized products for those who are fans of the show.  Giddy up and check out our favorites!
