It's Officially April. Time to Write A Letter!


It’s Officially April. Time to Write A Letter!

By  | 

It’s April! And April is National Letter Writing Month. And there’s only one way to get started: write that first letter!

Write to your lovely spouse, or your cute kid, or your wise old mentor, or your best friend forever, or your very deserving mother, or even the author of your all-time favorite book. Tell them thank you for being there for you or for doing amazing creative work. Or just say, “Hello, I’m thinking of you.”

Or write a letter to us here in the Leafcutter studio. We’ll write you back! Tell us about a creative insight you had recently, or something surprising you saw walking around town, or something nice you did for someone else last week.

The most important thing is to get that first letter out today. Seriously, when was the last time you wrote a letter? Email doesn’t count! It doesn’t take long and all you need is pen, paper, and an envelope. And a stamp if you’re going to mail it. First Class postage is $0.49 now. Not a bad deal to have¬†something delivered thousands of miles across the country in only a few short days.

You’ll love how it feels to seal your letter up and send it off. You’ll notice a small sense of accomplishment creep up inside you, and then the anticipation will build as your letter travels to its destination. It’s a fun secret to have: the knowledge that you’ve released a small surprise out into the world. When it lands in someone’s mailbox a few days later, you’re bound to hear about it. You might even get a letter in return!

We’ll be writing letters all month, and hopefully for years to come, from our new dedicated correspondence station in the studio. Stay tuned for a visual tour of our set up next week.

In the meantime, if you want to write to us and receive something back via mail, here’s our address:

Leafcutter Studio
1528 6th St
Berkeley, CA 94710

You can write to Lea, Emily, Lauren, Devin, Anton the Ant, or anyone else you might suspect is spending time with us in Berkeley. Hope to hear from you soon!
