Over to you Kate:
People today may be more apt to share milestones through Facebook updates or tweets, but the tradition of stationery is making a strong comeback. Sending a card or letter through the mail adds a personal touch and provides a long lasting message, something that gets lost through social media posts or email. So make sure that you send out birthday cards from Treat to your grandmothers or thank you cards from Wedding Paper Diva’s after your big day, because it will leave a good impression and shows the recipient you care.
