In a world where it is too easy to send a message to someone over the phone, it is a good thing to offer a letter using stationery. Before, people didn’t have easy access to their friends, and they needed to write a message on a piece of paper. Just because modern technology is now available does not mean you can’t try using the traditional method anymore.
You can use personalised stationery if you want to give a special letter to your friend. It is a unique idea that your friend will appreciate. You can design the stationery to include the elements that best represent you.
Designing the customised paper is the first step. The most important part is to determine what to write on it. These tips will help you as you decide what to write on the paper.
Make it sound natural
You are not writing a formal letter. You don’t need to use a complete sentence or formal words. Use words that you and your friend use when you converse with each other. It is easy to connect to your friend when you use the words that will remind you of each other. Besides, your letter will sound inauthentic if you force some words into it that are unnatural for who you are. It’s not like you’re trying to find your partners ring size, this should be smooth.
You don’t need to give the letter if you use the words you can send in a text. The primary reason why you are writing a letter is that you want to express your deepest thoughts and emotions. You want your friend to know that what you wrote was heartfelt and reflects everything you want to say. Sometimes, it is frustrating to read a letter that you expected a lot from, but it only contains generic words that don’t mean anything special.
Write it when you are ready
Don’t force yourself to write the letter when you are not in the mood to do it. You might have tons of problems at work or with your family. Even if you try to focus, you can’t write anything that genuinely reflects how you feel about your friend. Worse, you forgot to think of a gift, and you decided to write a letter on your way to the party. You should apologise and delay sending the gift instead of offering something that you did haphazardly.
Use some personalised marks
You can sign the paper to ensure that it came from you and you wrote all the words in the letter. You can also add smileys and other marks you usually use when writing something on paper. Even without reading the content, your friend will know that the letter came from you.
It might seem strange writing a letter on a piece of paper because you text this person all the time. However, as you start using your pen to write something, you will realise that it is not easy. You might need hours to finish the letter.
