It’s That Time of Year Once More!
It is very likely the novelty of snail mail has been sorely underrated since the popularity of digital communication. While digital communication provides the benefits of speed, convenience, and a lot more pocket change saved instead of being shelled out for postal charges, it comes at the price of the personal touch at times. When I was much younger, the primary form of communication between me and friends who have moved away and relatives who lived outside the country was through writing letters. Never mind the postage, nothing was like the thrill of receiving an envelope addressed to me. In fact, if it came written in extraordinary stationery — or if it concealed another more personal note between the pages of the outer letter — the better.
So, for the coming Christmas holidays, I plan to re-live the thrill of all that.
I am going to be designing Christmas cards for the coming holidays, and they’re going to be given away via snail mail. I have already sent out emails to relatives and various friends some time last week in request for their mailing addresses, and I figured I should also extend this invitation to the visitors of this website.
Do You Want a Christmas Card from Me?
If you wish to receive a Christmas card from me, kindly send me your name and mailing address via the contact page (either by email or through the contact form provided). For the purposes of sending them out before Christmas Day, I will accept submissions until on or before Monday, November 30th, 2009. My other request for those who submitted their details to take a photo of their cards and send it to me via email, so I can make a follow-up jotter post.
(Also, if you wish for me to make a non-Christmas holiday card for you, let me know as well, so I can design a card specifically for that occasion. Same submission details regarding submission deadlines and photo requests apply.)
