Snail Mail My Email

Of course, we all know that email is impersonal, lacking creativity and quite devoid of any significant effort on the part of the sender...

Ivan Cash, Artist, Designer, Art Director has created a nice twist on this with his Snail Mail My Email art project.

"Snail Mail My Email is a month-long (July 15 - August 15), interactive community art project which seeks to both share the warm-fuzzy feeling of receiving a personalized letter as well as inspire people to send their own snail mail. Anyone with internet access can partake by simply sending an email, after which the very same message will be handwritten and physically mailed to the chosen recipient anywhere in the world, completely free of charge.
In a culture overrun with instant gratification and on-demand services, this project cultivates appreciation for the lost art of letter writing."


Much as we love art... We love the idea of sending snail mail cards with personally handwritten sentiments even more. Especially those sent from Cool Cards.
