It doesn’t matter how far we delve into digital devices for media and communication; I think I will always feel a little rush of excitement when the mailman comes and the hope that maybe I received a package or a note from someone unexpected. The best way to ensure that you receive that kind of correspondence is to send it out yourself, and that is exactly the idea behind the We Love Mail competition being held by Newspaper Taxi, a boutique stationery and paper good shop in Australia.
Simply send Newspaper Taxi a piece of mail with a little stationery-related treat tucked inside — a luggage tag, some stickers, a couple old stamps. They will use all the mail for a window display, and then they’ll draw three lucky winners. Runners up will receive these pretty notecard bundles from Rifle Paper Co. and Sycamore Street Press (below), and first prize will receive all of the mailed-in loot! Sounds like a pretty fun way to ease back into sending more snail mail, and I can’t wait to see how the window turns out! The contest ends November 4th.
