We're big fans of written correspondence here at Smith Letterpress. There is something special and more personal about receiving a handwritten note, rather than an email or text. Although texting and emailing is very convenient and quick, the downside is that it can seem cold and impersonal (and frankly a little confusing with the OMGs and the ROFLs). A hand-written letter shows that someone took a little more time and care in what they were trying to communicate. They put pen to paper the old fashioned way - perhaps even made a mistake and scribbled it out. Their handwriting is a little window into their personality. The letter is solid and tangible. It has weight, and maybe even a light scent to it. At Smith Letterpress, we encourage the writing of letters by hand. We encourage you to sign your name with gusto! To lay a lipstick laden smooch, and to spritz your favorite perfume. You should interact with the paper — it's good for you!
Another fantastic way to make your mark is with personalized, custom social stationery. At Smith Letterpress, we create designs that are distinctively you, and then press them into exuisite paper — one piece at a time. Your friends will feel extra special when they get letters from you!

What is a social card, you ask? It's kind of like a business card, but without the business. Or a business card if your job was being social, or just plain friendly. It's a way of saying "hello, my name is so-and-so. Here's my number. Let's do lunch." It's actually a very old-timey thing to do and it is making a comeback.
