Stationery (otherwise known as Stationary)
If you are trying to stay in touch with your friends and stay social stationary can help you do this. Nothing beats receiving a hand written letter on a nice piece of stationary. If you are looking to reconnect with long lost friends, coworkers, and family members, writing letters can definitely make all the difference.
The key is to find stationary that not only says something about you but also says something about the person to whom you are writing. Thus, you want to consider the personality of the friend, family member, or coworker with whom you are trying to communicate.
Stationary is great because it can be found in a number of places: everywhere from bookstores to convenience stores to grocery stores. You can either buy your designer stationary from such stores or you can make your own. If you make your own, you show the person you are writing that you have taken even more time and thought into this letter and that you care enough to make this correspondence person.
If you want to make your own social stationary, you will need not only paper but also crafting supplies. You can invest in such materials in craft or fabric stores or through online vendors. You can use anything from ink and stamps to images you cut out of magazines and books to glue or tape to paper you find. The paper you invest in should be of high quality: if you plan to decorate it, you want it to be thick enough to withstand glue, tape, ink, and other materials. Try playing with borders, with the font, and with the images you use to make this stationary. The more personalized you make the paper, the more creative and unique it will seem to those you send it to.
If you want to stay social, custom stationary is a great way to show the people in your life that you care. If you stock up, look for stationary that is as personal as it is practical, you can keep up with the people in your life and truly show them that you care.
