Keep In Touch: 11 Killer (Local) Correspondence Ideas

With Evite and Facebook invitations, does anyone actually bust out a pen and write a letter — or even a brief note of gratitude anymore? Let's be honest, it's not half as exciting to hear a ping in your inbox than it is to open your mailbox and see a card addressed to your wonderful self. Sounds like a good opportunity to return the favor with a nice thank-you letter, n'est–ce pas?
From save the dates and party invitations to holiday greeting cards and those "just because" surprise notes, bring back the art of paper correspondence with one of these incredibly fun pieces of stationery. We promise, your recipient will want to turn his or her refrigerator into the original Pinterest board with these picks. The best part? All of them are from local shops — some of which, you can buy online if your inner lazy girl kicks in. If anything, just look at it as an opportunity to brush up on your handwriting.
