Letter Writing is Back: Send a Christian Greeting Card Today

Yes, you can read your friend’s latest Facebook posting instantly. Presto, you know where they spent their summer holiday. You, and about a thousand others. If social media disperses more personal information than ever before, it also has deprived many of meaningful personal (private) interactions. That the world still yearns for those personal interactions can be seen by a new wave of letter-writing that is splashing up on shores all around the globe.

Once a year in Britain they celebrate the Month of Letters. The Month of Letters is a campaign which challenges people to send out a letter, Christian greeting card or any kind of personal note via mail every day during the month.

One British online editor gave out her post office box number and a promise to compose a hand-written note to whoever would write to her. In no time, nearly 200 letters arrived from all around the world. The stamps, stationary and interesting missives were a treat – and a sign that hunger for letter writing has not disappeared.

A similar effort in Canada goes by the title League of Extraordinary Pen Pals. The group uses a social media site to connect potential pen pals from everywhere. Just like in Britain, a couple of hundred letter-writers responded very quickly to the invitation to take part.

The rapid and significant response to such formats reveals that letter-writing remains a welcome way to connect with people no matter where they live. Obviously, the ability to communicate digitally with people around the corner or around the world has not replaced the pleasure of sending and receiving hand-written cards and letters.

In fact, making time to write a personal note in a Christian greeting card or on home-crafted stationary can be a welcome reprieve from the online world. The entire process is more personal. From your choice of stationary to the individuality of your penmanship to the kinds of things you say in a letter – a greater degree of intimacy occurs.

That searching has made letter-writing a resurging art. The well-respected U.S. business source The Wall Street Journal, reports that office supply companies who have enlarged their investment in personal stationary have also enlarged their profits (five times faster than the S&P 500). The amazing ability to see and read and “get inside” so many places via the Internet has not satisfied people’s need to touch others in a more personal way.

So whether you decide to join a pen-pal group or commit to write a note each day for a month or simply send a Christian greeting card instead of a text or email – come ride the wave with others also seeking to re-connect. The Printery House wants to help. We have a wide array of note cards and personalized stationary waiting to be filled with your words to someone who will be encouraged by your words.

Online Christian Stores Offer Gifts the Bride and Groom Will Treasure

“Bless This Home” Wall Plaque

If you are fortunate enough to have the pleasure of attending a summer wedding this year, be thankful.

The weather is usually the least of a wedding guest’s worries, of course. Coming up with a gift that really means something to the couple is much tougher than choosing wedding attire that will work whether the sun is blazing or the breeze is blowing. Many modern blogs on the subject assume that newlyweds will be wowed by luxury items, large cash envelopes, or one-of-a-kind giftings. But for the sincere Christian couple, online Christian stores offer presents that appeal to their faith, are distinctive and are cost-friendly as well.

If the new couple will have a yard, no matter how small, it can be a nice idea to give them something for their outdoor space. You can find handsome garden stones and statuary with simple words like “Bless This House” that never go out of fashion. Catholic couples might enjoy a St Francis bird bath. St Francis was an amazing 12th century Christian who was so enraptured by the gospel that he shared it with everyone – supposedly even small animals and birds!

Newly-married couples will be setting up house together and what better expression of your support than the gift of a doorknocker? Especially one that bears the famous words of Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Great verses like these can also be purchased as wall art for inside the home. If you prefer the
subtler approach, online Christian stores typically stock a wide array of attractive resin plaques that rest on easels with faith-encouraging messages like Preach the Gospel at all times; use words if necessary.

Most Christian couples would be grateful to receive gifts that help them celebrate important holidays like Christmas too. Nativity sets make unique and treasured gifts for the bride and groom. You can find crèches in all sorts of sizes and styles, some large enough for a mantle or placing under the tree, others ideal for gracing the center of a dining table.

One last suggestion is to order some personalized stationary for the couple. They will have a lot of thank you notes to mail out and, let’s face it, there is a certain charm about seeing your names linked together and officially printed on your own stationary.

Many of these gift ideas and plenty of others can be found at The Printery House. You might take a few minutes and check them out our products to find something the bride and groom will love. Oh, and in terms of the weather, you might consider dressing
for hot weather but bringing along a pretty shawl or sweater, just in case. Men, you’re on your own.
