The Write Stuff

Rediscover the elegance of the lost art of letter writing

With today’s technology, handwritten letters are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Though emails and instant messages are more convenient, nothing can compare to the charm and personal touch that only handwritten words on a piece of paper can deliver --- be it a thank-you card for a lovely gift, a note of congratulations, or a heartfelt letter to a dear friend.

Convert a Jewelry Box. Keep your stationery supplies in order by placing them all inside a jewelry box. You may source at Regalong Pambahay for the perfect box. Make sure you find the right size for filing letters and do check out those with trays that can hold rubber stamps and other paraphernalia.
Mix, don’t match. Come up with your own set of stationery! An easy way to make yours interesting is to mix colors, or simply choose paper with the color or print that complements your envelope. There are a wide variety of papers and envelopes at most office supply and bookstores that are beautiful enough and inexpensive, too!
Stamp it! Having note cards and stationery printed with your initials can be too costly. Use rubber stamps to decorate your letterheads and envelopes instead. You’ll even get to play it up with different designs and colors of ink.
