WHY HANDWRITTEN MATTERS
Sadly, handwritten is about to be added to the endangered list. Today’s romances and scandals happen via SMS
or social media. Where’s the charm? Most of the greatest trysts and business deals have involved a handwritten letter
of love, apology or thanks. Etiquette goddess Emily Post (and probably your mother too!) would agree 110 percent.
When something is handwritten it signi es a lot of time and consideration: rst there’s the decision of what kind of paper to use, then the question of the colour of ink and, nally, exactly which combination of words will get the right point across. A well thought out letter
will be tucked away in a nightstand drawer to be kept forever and probably
reread by nosy grandchildren years later. So pop over to your local printer or stationer for the right paper, dust your
favourite pen o , and get writing.
