Our Top Stationery Picks for “National Letter Writing Month”

Have a penchant for writing stuff that soothes the soul?  If so, keep reading!  The entire month of April has been dubbed “National Letter Writing Month.”  From catching up with your best friend who lives thousands of miles away to sending that belated thank you card that, for one reason or another, just never made it out, it seems that now you have no excuse.

A handwritten note is simply more meaningful than a tweet, text, or e-mail.  To celebrate 30 days of writing, we’ve rounded up our top stationery picks to help you get started.

National Letter Writing Month 1


Leuchtturm Journal (Kate’s Paperie) – If you ask us, journaling is letter writing at its finest.  Since you never know when the inspiration to write is going to strike, do yourself a favor and always have a journal on hand for all those pre-letter writing thoughts.

Delfonics Mechanical Wood Pencils (Walker Shop) – If you’re more old-fashioned when it comes to your preferred writing utensil, yet want something that’s a step up from your standard #2, look no further than Delfonics’ line of mechanical wood pencils.

give “thanks”

Casual Thank You Boxed (Sugar Paper LA) – Day in, day out, this set of casual thank you cards by Sugar Paper LA gets the job done.  There’s much to love about these kraft paper cards and “pool cabana” striped envelopes.

Papercut Confetti Thank You Card (EvermorePaperCo.) – One syllable, six letters — a note of “thanks” really says it all.

Merci Hearts Card (Rifle Paper Co.) – For the classiest of letters, you’ll need an equally sophisticated card to match. Who better to turn to than Parisian chic fashion blogger, Garance Dore?  Merci!

say “hello”

Bow Noteset (Sugar Paper LA) – Sometimes the simplest of cards will do.  Clean, minimalist, thoughtful…and a bow.

“How the Devil Are You” Card Set (Kate Spade) – Long time, no talk?  Start back up where you last left off with this chummy card set by Kate Spade.

Gel-Ink Ballpoint Pen 0.5MM (Muji) – Since not just any old pen will do, we’re currently sweet on Muji’s gel-ink ballpoint pens.  Available in a rainbow of hues, they’re sure to add some flair to every signature.

Postale app

Postale app by Pseudo Studios – Because we live in the 21st century, naturally there’s an app for letter writing…err, perhaps postcard writing.  If you have a mini vacay planned this month, then send a digital postcard.  Thanks to Postale, it’s as easy as choosing a layout, adding a theme and personalizing your card with a message and snapshot. When you’re all done, pick out a vintage postage stamp and hit send (via e-mail or twitter).

When thinking of who you want to write to this month, keep in mind that it’s better late than never. Not to mention that nothing beats the happy surprise of receiving a handwritten letter at your doorstep.  Get writing!
