A little while back, I came across the the fine Elephant Cards of the Forgetful Gentleman. It got me thinking about the lost art of the hand-written letter, and I vowed on that day that I would begin partaking in that very act more. I don’t believe in New Years resolutions as I think they are fairly bogus. That’s a whole other story I will not delve into at this time. At any rate, I just kicked off my personal attempt to engage in writing letters more and more by way of sending ‘Thank You’ notes to relatives for the holiday gifts and well-wishes they sent my way. While I opted to use Hallmark this time around to express my sentiments, I did happen upon the set of Pigma Micron pens I sort of forgot all about. Having a decent pen is crucial I learned as my years as a loan analyst for a small investment firm in the suburbs of Denver oh so many years ago. Not that I get giddy over a simple pen, but I can say without question the Micron .20mm is hands down one of the finest pens I own. It pays to have friends who work at art stores. So as a shameless plug, if you are in the market for a good, affordable writing utensil, this should be on your list.
Now the question remains: What route do I take for the stationary itself? I like the letterpressed Forgetful Gentleman line, but as always, I am open to other suggestion. I suppose there’s always loose-leaf.
