dropping you a line

I was cleaning off my dresser, and cleaning out the dresser drawers this week, when I came across a stack of postcards. This wasn’t any normal collection of postcards – it was approximately 50 postcards I snagged from the 3-Day walk in Philadelphia back in 2006, intending to mail them to people who donated as a thank you.

You can see how well that went. I have good intentions, I just need to work on my execution. Instead of putting off the postcards until AFTER my walk, I need to take care of it before the walk, when I’m still motivated and excited. After the walk, when I’m feeling something out of Night Of The Living Dead, I’m not motivated at all to write out postcards. I’m not even motivated to get out of bed!

The thing is, since this is a charity walk, my thank you notes need to be cheap. That’s why I originally took those free cards from the first walk – they fit my budget. To send out thank you cards in advance, I need to buy cheap postcards in advance. A few months ago, I ordered business cards from VistaPrint.com, and I was thrilled with how they turned out, so I imagine I’d be just as happy with the postcards they offer. Like the business cards I ordered, you can use a stock design for your postcard, or create your own original creation. These aren’t just good for than you notes…what about a change of address? Or a postcard to promote your business? The more you order, the cheaper they are, and with prices starting at pennies per card…well, the people who donate to my walks are worth it!

    Sending the postcards before is a good idea!! Now if only that theory worked for kids birthday parties …. darn.
