Today, we rely on texts, social media messages, and email. But often, we forget how much it means to others when we send them handwritten notes—and we forget how much we enjoy receiving those notes.
Maybe it’s the delayed gratification we left behind when we entered the digital age, or perhaps it’s discovering the unexpected—a small handwritten treasure, something someone you cherish has touched and taken the time to extend their thoughts and wishes.
Handwritten note cards are a small gesture that cost little and mean a lot in any situation. Here are a few ideas for writing notes for various occasions:
A Potential Employer
Looking to get that job or a promotion? Don’t just follow up with an email. Take the time to write a heartfelt thank you note to your prospective boss. Not only is a handwritten note a good way to foster goodwill, it will keep your name at the top of mind when the interviewer narrows down her picks for a position.
We all have those friends we spent all the time in the world with throughout elementary school, high school, or college… maybe even all three. Then, one of you moved away, had kids, got busy because … life. Send them a chatty note telling them what’s going on with you and how much you miss them.
A Grandparent, Grandchild, or Child
The beautiful thing about handwritten notes is anyone can write them. You can be 3, 13, 30, or 90, and put pen to paper. Give those cherished family members something to treasure by sending them mail. Even a few sentences about how you’re thinking about that person can brighten their day immeasurably.
A Significant Other
Even if you live under the same roof, taking time to put sentiments down on paper is good practice in a relationship. It gives you time to reflect on what the other person means to you. Send your spouse or partner a note just because ... or because they did something noteworthy.
Anyone, Just Because
A teacher, a therapist, a religious leader, a community member you admire. Motivational speaker and influencer Ruthie Lindsey once said: “If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.” Let those people who pass through your life know that they’re doing a good job.
At PAPYRUS, we carry plenty of boxed thank you notes and boxed note cards for you to pen all those sentiments. While we have plenty of blank spaces for you to write, you can also personalize your cards with extra-special touches.
