Letter #5 - Smell the Roses

The day was over before it started; a never-ending stream of problems. Nothing a stiff drink and some Netflix can't fix. Better grab the mail before going inside. Fast food coupons, the latest health magazine...and something else - an invitation to enjoy the moment.


The Envelope

For Letter #5, we reused extra envelopes from Letter #3. We added a Posted logo stamp to the front and a rose stamp to the back.


The Art

The Prompt

We included a flyer in Letter #5 that asked subscribers to tell us what they appreciate, either by filling out a simple form or by sending us art. We plan to do something fun with the collection of responses.


Next Steps

After Letter #5, our focus is to create a subscription letter that subscribers will happily pay for and value. We are in the process of creating a letter that will represent our rising standards of value and quality.
