When was the last time you received a piece of snail mail that wasn't a bill, invite or subscription? As we've become more and more dependent on our portables and inboxes, our mailboxes have become less and less personal. While there are some pretty sweet online postcard services, print cards can be treasured forever — or at least they can't be deleted. Next time you plan to send correspondence to a nerdy friend consider a more personalized pen pal message on one of these design-friendly and decidedly geeky cards.
Even if he didn't friend me on Facebook, waited longer than three days to call after our first date, or has a ton of female contacts, I'd still let one of these irritating tech-behaviors slide if he slipped one of these flirtatious letterpress cards ($7 for a set of six) in the mail. And if your eyes are as bad as mine, the pink one reads "Google Me" while the brown one reads "Why don't you tweet me sometime."
But since I can imagine the speed would be slothlike compared to today's machines, I'll settle for these nostalgia-pleasing iBook Cards.
The set of three is $12 and contains assorted colors (just like the originals). Oh, and when you open up this clamshell, you get a happy birthday greeting!
