For my first letter, I chose old typewriter font, simple retro envelope, and simple retro paper. My message is a poem by Christina Rosetti:
'I dreamt I caught a little owl
And the bird was blue -'
'But you may hunt for ever
And not find such a one.'
'I dreamt I set a sunflower
And red as blood it grew -'
'But such a sunflower never
Bloomed beneath the sun.'
~ Christina Rosetti
My second letter was set in female script with grunge envelope and paper. This time my message was a song quoted in an old children's book I love:
Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
When I am king, dilly dilly,
You shall be queen!
Who told you so, dilly dilly,
Who told you so?
'Twas my own heart, dilly dilly,
That told me so!
~ The Ordinary Princess
Envelopes: The envelopes were a bit too large and the pattern was a little off-balanced. The adhesive lines were plain white, which kind of bothered me - I felt like they should put the pattern on the entire envelope. However, I really liked that the inside of the envelope was printed and not white. Both envelope patterns were really nice and I liked the look of them. The addresses were printed in the old typewriter font - a nice touch.
Paper: I love that the paper was smaller than printer paper and looked like actual stationary, not like just a piece of paper I could print off. I didn't like that the print was only on one side, but it doesn't really matter since the actual messages/letters are one-sided and I planned to frame them and hang them up.
Printing/message: The font turned out just like online - neat, properly spaced, etc. My message was printed exactly as I typed it in.
I was provided two free letters, valued at $5.99 each, in exchange for this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
