Thank You, Thank You Very Much

With our first premium letter launch behind us, we were eager to follow it up with another that would deliver a meaningful experience and message to the recipient. We decided to create a thank you letter for the special people in our lives that deserve our appreciation.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” - William Arthur Ward

Chocolate & The King of Rock n’ Roll

We chose a design theme of chocolate for Letter 007. We felt that chocolate was an interesting subject visually and that it is one of the most common gifts that might be sent along with a thank you letter. We would have loved to find a chocolate themed stamp, but there are none. Luckily, we stumbled upon these beautiful Elvis stamps and he spoke to us: “Thank you, thank you very much”.


The Envelope

Designed by Twon Pearson, the envelope features two chocolate bunnies on the front worshiping a piece of wrapped chocolate. On the back, you’ll find Elvis’s famous catchphrase along with an unwrapped chocolate bar featuring the Posted Pigeon.

The Strathmore Premium Wove Chino 80lb envelopes are size A9 (5.75x8.75”).


Hot Chocolate Illustration

We commissioned the hot chocolate illustration from Raime Lee specifically for this letter. The illustration was done in pencil and printed on 130lb card stock at 5x7”.


The Photograph

The photograph, captured by Jordane Mathieu and printed at 4x6”, features a decadent lava cake being drizzled with chocolate sauce.


The Excerpt from Ode to Chocolate

The excerpt from Ode to Chocolate by Laura Hillenbrand combines the two themes of Letter 007 - gratitude and chocolate. The excerpt was typewritten on Strathmore Premium Wove Desert Haze 24lb paper and enhanced with custom calligraphy.


The Stationery

Every letter needs a handwritten note and at Posted, we do the writing for you in beautiful cursive script. The stationery features a custom design printed on Strathmore Premium Wove Desert 24lb paper that matches the paper used for the excerpt. The handwriting is done with a dip pen and brown walnut ink.


The Magnet

As a special gift, we included a Posted Pigeon magnet with each letter.


Thank You!

We create these letters for people who believe in sending printed messages and gifts. We hope you enjoy Letter 007 and please feel free to contact us anytime.

Sincerely,
Dave & Paul
