I'm the kind of person who absolutely loves handwritten notes, post cards, basically mail, period. As a kid I used to write my best friend a mini novel at least once a week, and wait anxiously on her response to show back up in my mailbox. I still have boxes of all of my letters from my childhood, and more than a few printed emails before I could let go of the notion that relationship and words didn't always exist on paper I could hold any more. Since becoming an adult though I've found that the life in front of me, and the tiny hands wanting food, and the pull of other things has slowly but surely pushed the act of sending real notes completely out of my life (my grandmothers birthday card actually sat on my mantle for two months last year just because I couldn't manage to make it to the post office to get a stamp. Maybe I'm the only one in that situation, but for me the struggle is real). The situation was pretty sealed. I felt guilty for failing, but there wasn't really any sign of doing better, so when I was introduced to Felt App a few months ago I was genuinely excited to try it out.
Basically, you download the app on your iPhone or iPad, choose a card or photo, type or write a note (with your actual handwriting), and complete your purchase. That's it. They print the card, and send it FOR you (this is the big thing for me. No more withering under the stare of the unsent cards on the mantle). We're sending our Christmas cards (and thank you notes, and birthday cards, and christmas greetings from Jane) this year with the new Felt storyframes and it's been basically the BEST THING EVER.
