Make your snail mail feel extra special

Designer Lindsay T. is no stranger to Think.Make.Share. And she’s certainly no stranger to the post office. Being an avid card sender since age 6, Lindsay has adopted many ways to make her mail feel special, even if it’s “just because.” Today, she is sharing with us some “moving” inspiration and a few simple tips for adding a little flair to your envelopes.

So, now that you’re armed with inspiration and a quick tip-sheet, get out there and show those mailboxes what you got. If you need a little help, pop on over to our Instagram and you might just win yourself a snail mail starter kit!
