Outsourcing your handwriting but not your thoughts
Punkpost is one of many apps that promise to make it easy to send thoughtful, custom messages and cards through the mail. But it comes with a twist: Rather than having cold, typewritten text, Punkpost will write your message in very attractive handwriting. Think of it as Cyrano de Bergerac for snail mail. You get to write the words, and they are presented in a far prettier form for your recipient. The first card is free, and each costs $6 after that.
You can pick from several categories of cards including for Mother’s Day, thank-you notes and birthdays (both timely and belated). Of course, some people may prefer your own chicken scratch to the beautiful handwriting of the person you’ve hired to transcribe your messages. But it will at least be your words that reach them — and you’ll get the credit for them, too.
