There’s a lot of talk today about people feeling isolated, lonely and physically separated from family and loved ones. Because of this, it’s even more important to get back to the basics of communication. This means taking time out each day to let someone know you’re thinking of them by sitting down and writing a personal note, sending a personalized card or even calling them on the phone to let them know you care.
The Importance of Staying in Touch
The importance of staying in touch with others has never been more important than it is today. This means that honing skills like letter writing and personal note writing has become ever more important. Our selection of personalized stationery, note cards and other personalized items at Miles Kimball is a great way to get started. Start slowly by making a goal of writing one personalized note per week — it doesn’t have to be fancy, eloquent or expertly written. Just a quick “Hello, I’m thinking of you and I hope you have a great day,” is a great start. Tell your friend or loved one about the highlights of your week, something special that happened or something that made you smile. Has a cardinal couple been regulars to your bird feeder each morning? Did you enjoy the smell of the rain from an enclosed porch? Is a beautiful flower growing outside your window? The simple fact that an effort was made to stay in touch is often enough to make a world of difference.
Personalized Address Labels
Consider creating a basket full of personalized correspondence goodies from Miles Kimball to send to a loved one who is isolated at this moment. Include our personalized address labels, a set of new pens and some fun postage stamps that are in line with a particular interest of the recipient (such as animals, flowers or inspirational themes). Personalized address labels are a fun and easy way to add some personality to your correspondence and are easy to stick to your envelopes in seconds, saving your hand to write that personalized note inside.
Available in many different styles, colors and designs, our self-stick address label rolls are a delight to receive. Shop label and seal sets that allow you to decorate your envelopes with patriotic themes, holiday themes, religious themes to wildlife, animals and floral decorations. Adorn your envelopes with these labels, address labels, clear address labels and seals in colorful designs.
One doesn’t need a special occasion to get a personalized note in the mail. In fact, we think that it is even more special to receive an unexpected note in the mail when you’re least expecting it. To be honest, the thought of heading to the mailbox to take out more junk mail and advertisements can often be a bit depressing. A handwritten note from a friend or a family member can uplift one’s thoughts and considerably brighten their day. Click on our personalized calendars and stationery to check out our selection of personalized paper goods and accessories, including our self-inking stamps. Add a pocket calendar to a “Thinking of You” card, add a personalized note pad or give someone a towel calendar that they can use throughout the year (and then add to their kitchen collection when the year is over).
Our personalized stationery is great to say everything from “happy birthday,” “hello,” “I miss you” or “hang in there.” Our high-quality note cards and personalized stationery products are available in many different designs and font styles — from traditional script to personalized home state note cards.
Seasonal and Holiday Cards
Of course, the holidays are a fantastic reason to send cards. Personalized Christmas and holiday cards are our specialty at Miles Kimball and our affordable personalized holiday and seasonal cards are not-to-miss sections of the Miles Kimball website. For Christmas and holiday lovers, nothing is more special that receiving and displaying their holiday cards. Luckily, we have a stunning array of holiday cards from which to choose. From religious blessing cards, nostalgic cards, whimsical cards and traditional cards to season’s greeting and nature scenery displays, there are cards that will satisfy every seasonal preference.
Office Organizers and Supplies
If you’re new to sending hand-written thoughts via the mail to loved ones, that’s OK. Getting in the groove with sending love to friends and family members takes just a little organization and will get easier with time. Until then, there are fantastic organizational tools that can help you get your thoughts, dates and supplies in order. For example, we offer a greeting card organizer book that allows you to organize a year’s worth of cards in advance so they’re ready to go each month. (Hint: Our greeting card organizer makes a terrific gift!) Other organizers and dividers can be used, such as our greeting card organizer with dividers or lined index stick-on tabs to help you stay organized, write notes to yourself about when to mail out your correspondence and more. From letter holder baskets and storage bins to magnets and multi-function pens, there is a great selection of office supplies and organization products to get you on track.
