Words. Letters. Envelopes.

Hi. My name is Courtney. When I was nine years old, my best friend moved away to another town. Although it was only 123km away, it seemed as though we would never see or be able to keep in contact with each like we previously had. So we decided we would write letters to each other! Twenty years on and I am still in love with the written word and how grouped together on a piece of paper, held safety together by the all mighty envelope one can not only stay in touch will friends and family, but even 'meet' people across the seas and lands.

Many letters and stationery sets later, I became disenchanted with what was available - or rather the lack thereof, and started to make my own envelopes. From a young age the daily trip to the post office with my Mother was an experience time is yet to take from me. Yet I always wondered about all the plain white envelopes. Imagine living in a world where all your postal delights will be delivered in an unique handmade envelope - a world where you stand out in the crowd. This is the world I have envisaged for the future of the postal system, and I long to see envelopes representing favourite colours, designs and interests to either yourself, the sender, or that of the receiver of your postal missive.

I also dream that more people send letters, and handwritten mail. I opened my shop to enable people to see what their letters may become, and together we can beautify the post across the world!

Keep writing letters.
