These days, most of our communication is done in a flurry of e-mails, texts and Slack messages. Maybe, we’ll get a phone call if we’re lucky.
While these contemporary devices bring convenience to our lives, the stress of a pinging text never quite equals the warm feeling issued by finding a handwritten letter among the bills in your mailbox.
“It’s really special to see someone take the time to put a pen to paper,” says April May, owner of handmade greeting card company Smudge Ink. “It’s an element of human connection that I feel is really valuable, especially now that we’re doing more and more electronically.”
Based in Charlestown, the Smudge Ink studio uses an old-school letterpress to manually illustrate cards and letterhead for distribution nationwide.
