FRAMED LOVE LETTERS
In this fast-moving technical world, is there anything more valuable than a handwritten note? Writing letters is a lost art – emails and texts are easier but far less personal. There is something romantic and beautiful about old-fashioned penmanship, vintage postcards, and the stories they tell. Whether it’s a love letter from your significant other, a scribbled note a friend left on your desk, or a postcard from around the world, framing can help you make those memories last.

The Romance of Travel
Postcards make excellent framed displays! Whether it’s a vintage postcard from a relative, or a souvenir from your friend’s vacation, add a picture or two to complete the story.
Tip: Most letters, postcards or recipe cards are written edge to edge. Try float mounting it – place the postcard on top of the mat rather than cutting an opening in the mat. That way you don’t lose a single word.
