01/08/2018  . Rifle Paper Forever Love Stamp

Rifle Paper Company’s gorgeous and wildly popular artwork has become one of the latest additions to the United States Postage Stamp oeuvre. The forever Love stamp features signature Rifle Paper Company florals – pale mustard peonies, sienna pine and blue hyacinth. 

The Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee (CSAC) came together in 1957. Members are appointed by the Postmaster General. From the USPS website:

“The [CSAC] selects subjects for recommendation as future stamp issues, made with all postal customers in mind, including stamp collectors…[members] provide expertise on history, science and technology, art, education, sports, and other subjects of public interest”.

01/03/2018  . The Art of the Handwritten Thank You

A PROPER THANK YOU

January is the perfect time to evaluate the role of gratitude in your life and express it. Following the gift-giving season, make time to properly say thank you. Handwritten thank you notes are the perfect (and traditional) way to thank loved ones for their heartfelt gifts. 

E Frances watercolor Thank You card

A true traditionalist would argue that the actual words “thank you” should not be pre-printed on a thank you note – it should be handwritten in the body of the text by the sender. Either way, the act of saying thank you comes from the heart.

START THE YEAR WITH GRATITUDE

Did you “forget” to send holiday cards – thank you notes are just as fun and appreciated by the recipient. Wish them happy new year and thank them for their holiday wishes.

RESOLVE TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE YEAR ROUND

Saying thank you on paper applies to so many occasions – birthday gifts, dinner parties, interview requests, neighborly niceties, a job well done.

Everyone likes to receive a thank you note! Send one to hosts, babysitters, employers/employees, friends, family and helpful neighbors.

GET INSPIRED

There are plenty of inspiring books and blogs geared towards the health, mental and relationship benefits of saying thanks! One of our favorites – “A Simple Act of Gratitude” by John Kralik

FIND THE PERFECT PEN – see our online selection of pens

A comfortable writing pen makes all the difference – choosing something that feels good (the right grip and weight), writes smoothly (do you prefer a ballpoint, roller ball or fountain pen?) and makes you smile when you see it. A beautifully designed pen makes for a stylish desk accessory.

STAMP STYLE & PERSONALIZATION

Thankfully the USPS has introduced a “forever” stamp several years ago that allows you to stock up without ever wasting a stamp after an annual postage hike. There is a wide variety of designs to personalize your envelopes, or you can even order a custom designed stamp.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Do you find it productive to write at the office, or at a desk? Do all of your writing supplies live in the same place where you can find them?

Is it relaxing to curl up in a quiet armchair with a blanket and journal and catch up on correspondence?

Do you prefer to be productive on the go – perhaps carrying a pencil case of writing supplies and catching up a brief thank you’s in waiting rooms, while waiting on meetings or on public transportation?

However you say thank you we are certain you will be glad you did!
