Why Print When It Is Online?
I really like going to my mailbox. With less and less mail being sent, I like reaching in to find out who still cares enough to mail something my way.
Don’t get me wrong, there is the odd “seriously” moment, such as when Valpak sends me yet another one of their envelopes. I have yet to open one (sorry Valpak). But these are minor disruptions in my “mail moment” as the USPS loves to call it.
