When did you last write a letter
I mean picking up a pen and putting ink to paper

In this world of instant electronic communications, sharing socially at the click of the button or moreover the tap of a touchscreen on your smartphone, you'd think the old school pen and ink method of communication would be dead.

We'll that is what we thought, however, our old StationeryBox website has been chugging along quite nicely for the past 10 years or so. It is looking tired and technology has moved on considerably, so due to popular demand we recently launched our bigger, better, more website Personalised Stationery

But what is it about receiving a personal letter through the post? Does it carry more charisma than an email. Is it because the sender took time and effort to consider their words; the sentiment that they carry may be cherished for years to come. Is there a greater gravitas in the thought that goes into a letter over an electronic message.

Electronic communications can be transient as times, whereas a letter has a permanence, a more soulful connection between two people and the thought of ripping the paper and throwing it in the bin is like tearing at your heart strings. 

Debrett's sum it up quite well:
"Writing by hand focuses the mind. There is no delete button, no backspace, so words must be considered and chosen carefully before being committed to paper, making their meaning all the more succinct. Handwritten notes are both personal and permanent; a love letter is worth a thousand texts."

So isn't about time you took some time and trouble to write someone a letter. It may enrich their life, and yours too.
