In today’s digital world, where all communication seems to happen by email, texting and telephone conversations, there doesn’t seem to be a place for stationery. But high-quality stationery is still in demand and very much welcomed by people. Here are four reasons why:
- The sense of care
- It speaks to a slower, more thoughtful pace
- It’s aesthetically pleasing
- The indulgence in a bit of nostalgia
The use of stationery speaks to a greater amount of care and thoughtfulness than a simple email, which can be fired off quickly. With stationery, you’re deliberately choosing the style and considering both your own tastes and what any recipients of your cards or letters might like as well. You’re taking just little bit more time crafting something unique.
When the pace of life is set to high-speed and there are dozens of things to do every day, stationery gives you a chance to slow down a little – to pause, reflect, and be more considerate. Communication doesn’t always have to take place at a frenetic, instantaneous pace.
High-quality stationery is an artistic product. It’s made with care and with a feeling for beauty and aesthetic pleasure. This gives people enjoyment and calm, not to mention a greater appreciation for what’s lovely in their life.
If you enjoy some of the habits and pleasures of time gone by, then writing on stationery can be a treat. Pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee, and put your thoughts to paper at a more relaxed pace.
This doesn’t mean that digital communication is bad. In fact, you can easily use the Internet to customize your own stationery, such as making greeting cards with your photo on them. Still, stationery is special in its own right.
