I must confess, I’m really not much of a letter writer (something which I’m sure will be readily confirmed by anybody who has corresponded with me in the past). It’s a little odd, you might think, because my zines are generally pretty wordy; but for some reason I just don’t seem to have many words left over when it comes to actual personal communication. I can usually fill a postcard, but not much more. If I’m sending somebody a zine (etc), usually a mini card (/business card) has more than enough space for what I have to say. Thus, my latest range of postage stamp stationery consists of flat notecards (/blank postcards) and mini notecards. Because these are the sizes I’m most likely to use myself.
My question is…actually a series of questions… I’ll list them instead! So, are you ready? When it comes to correspondence:
- What kind of cards do you prefer?
- Are you a full-on letter writer and would prefer notepaper, instead?
- Do you ever/often use notepaper & notecard combined, or would it usually be one or the other?
- If you use notecards, do you prefer a flat, single-sided notecard or a single-fold notecard with more space to write inside?
- If you prefer a folded notecard, do you prefer a design printed on the back as well as the front, or do you prefer the back to be left blank so that you can continue your note?
- Do you have any other thoughts about notecard design which might be relevant?
You might gather, I’m thinking of adding a blank-inside single-fold notecard to the range in the future, so I’m just trying to establish what would be the most practical, attractive-to-a-buyer/notewriter option. But I’m also genuinely interested in your correspondence habits & preferences, so please do share. And browse the current range, too. 😉
