Stamps are getting more expensive, can you still write letters?
With the development of communication technology, our daily communication can be achieved through e-mail or messages. But on a particular day and occasion, whether to use some different expressions can better express our inner emotions. The words flowing from the pen’s tip are full of love and miss.
While writing, between the lines, the expression of emotion and the release of self. Like meditation, consider the words and sentences of the letter and recall the happiness of the past, which will delight the brain and release dopamine. Paper letters are more warm and collectible than emails. Tangible paper letters, reread for years to come, with warmth and love at your fingertips. Unlike emails and text messages, handwritten letters have a meaning that doesn’t allow you to click “Delete.” The excitement and joy of reading for the first time will not change much from the emotional rush of reading when the envelope is opened many years later because letters and thoughts are static in time.
In a world where everything is spinning fast, some stamps with symbolic meaning that can coexist with warm letters are the best partners. While Forever stamps are expensive now, as their name suggests, these unique stamps can be used long after the date you bought them. “Forever stamps can be used to mail 1-ounce letters, regardless of when the stamp is purchased or used, regardless of future price changes,” the USPS wrote. This means that if you still have some 58-cent Forever stamps lying around your house, you can use them to send a letter without adding extra postage to make up for the price increase.
