    Thanks. This is a good idea. Ever since I started to commit myself to write and do more analog correspondence to build/deepen relationship, I have never thought of putting together a kit. This post is really helpful. You should write a book like “The Art of The Personal Letter” by Margaret Shepherd.

    • Thanks so much! I hope you put a kit together for yourself, and it helps you keep your mail correspondence organized. I will definitely look into “The Art of the Personal Letter”! However, I don’t think I quite have the chops to write a book 😉

  2. LIFE paper is one of my favorites 🙂 I’m glad you carry the small Bank Paper pad, I’m going to get it from you one of these days. I have the bigger Writing Paper pad with the green cover – the paper itself is very good but the lines are spaced a bit too far apart for my taste. I would recommend it to people whose handwriting is on the large side…

    • I love the L Brand Writing Pad with the green cover! Although I agree the lines are a bit far apart. It’s good for me when I’m breaking out the really broad nibs or the music nibs! The Bank paper is a bit different, I’m going to have to do a review on that sometime 🙂

    I noticed you say that you match your longer notes (Rhodia A4) with the airmail envelopes. Do they fit folded like a normal letter or do you have to do something special folding them? I’m currently trying to get pieces of my kit together. Really enjoyed this article!


    • There are three sizes of the airmail envelopes: the #4 will is the long one that will fit A4 papers just folded up into thirds “normally,” the #6 is my usual, which fits a B5 paper (in-between A4 + A5), and the #7 is the smallest, usually for A5. However, I usually only have the #6 envelopes, and so I fold my A4 papers vertically as well as horizontally. I may have to do a quick photo post to explain what I mean a bit better!
