Oh! WHAT A GOOD IDEA
When emails became simply too work related and impersonal Timothy Rennie, the founder of Oh! MAIL decided to take inspiration from the 17th century, and their tangibly tactile wax sealed qualities, to create his own stationery concept.
The thrill of receiving a handwritten message has become a very rare commodity and therefore a great luxury to be treasured and enjoyed. As Kiran Sidhu wrote in her article Handwritten Letters Belong to our DNA in The Guardian - “A letter is an act of creation in a way an email can never be. When someone sends you a handwritten letter, you receive a part of who they are.”
Oh! HOW IT WORKS
Oh! MAIL’s concept is gloriously simple: A4 sheets of beautiful Forest Stewardship Council certified paper milled in the Lake District, featuring an evocative photographic image, with two to select from: a black and white peony and a pale pink and white rose, forming a border around a postcard-sized area on which the message is written... or drawn. The paper, pre-scored, is then folded to postcard size and sealed with one of our striking red Oh! MAIL paper seals. The front, with its hand-applied Inksplodge ink stamp, requires only the handwritten name and address and a stamp to be added.
Now it’s ready to post.
All without the need for an envelope.
Once received, whether filled with words or a drawing, they become their own artworks with a journey and story all their own.
Write it. Fold it. Seal it. Send it.
