Staying connected via snail mail

The people I consider to be my closet friends and colleagues right now are the ones that I have only met in person a handful of times. That may sound like a weird thing to say, but just because I don’t meet up with these ladies in person for drinks doesn’t mean we don’t talk.

Oh we talk! On Skype, via email, and on the phone.

Occasionally, I’ll even send ’em some snail mail. Admittedly, I haven’t been good about sending thank you cards and notes in the mail lately because I have been so dang busy (and I don’t always remember), but I plan to get back on track with that soon because of Sent Well.

Here’s the deal: You can buy greeting cards (the letterpress section is my fav) from Sent Well the old fashioned way and have the blank cards shipped to your house OR you can have them send your cards out for you – they will write your personal message out by hand (yes- handwritten), address the envelope, stamp it, and send your card in the mail to it’s recipient.

How awesome is that?

So, I’ve been playing around with some of the cards that the owner, Nicole, graciously sent me and I wrote a few letters that I’ve been putting off for far too long….

I want you to test the process out as well and see how it works, so one lucky winner will get to do just that…

I’d write thank-you notes to the many people who gave us baby presents. The baby is now 7 months old, so most of them are long overdue! Perhaps some pretty stationery would be a motivator…


I love Sent-Well!!! Absolutely beautiful cards, and Nicole’s penmanship when sending cards is beautiful.

I desperatly need to send my Dad a birthday card, I would definitely use one of them to say happy birthday!

I would love to send some snail mail to my cousin and friend who both just had a baby! Personally, I cherish the paper cards I receive so much more then e-cards!


My son would love to send letters to his best friend in Tallahassee, and I would love to instill in him a love of writing.

I’ve been meaning to snail mail my friends who are living in South Korea, as well as some who live in Wales! I would love to send some of these fun cards their way. 🙂

Those cards are beautiful! I have been meaning to send some snail mail to one of my best friends from college who just moved to Cinncinati a few months ago. A few encouraging words to help him along the way. 🙂
Thank you for the chance to win!
