kinda genius: envelope template


In a world full of status updates, Tweets, and quick texts fired off underneath tables at boring meetings, a bona fide signed-sealed-delivered letter is downright luxurious. The Spoon Sisters are leading the fight to bring back the handwritten note with their envelope template ($16.95). Trace the simple wooden template on to some beautiful paper and you have a unique message that feels much more satisfactory than “liking” a status (I promise). Gather some pen pals, take a trip to your local stationery store, and get cracking on those handwritten love notes. — Katie D.
