Why We Love Note Cards: Contrary to popular belief, and to the folks at Compendium, the written word is not dead! Who doesn't enjoy getting a "real" piece of mail? These note cards are made of the finest paper stock and carry meaningful sentiments, making it easy to drop a quick note to someone to express your gratitude, friendship or understanding. Here's an idea: challenge yourself to send a hand-written note to one person each week. You'll feel great and the recipient will feel special!
