sometimes i think that people don't send snail mail simply because it takes too long. and it's true - sending a text or a tweet or an email is sooo much quicker. but which is more special i ask you? which of these things will make your recipient squirm with delight? likely not the tweet!
so in order to save you time - i'm kickin' it old school with these new aerograms. an aerogram, or aerogramme, or air letter was largely used during the second world war. for a very low price, you could purchase a self sealing fold and mail envelope. during wartime, when money was low and rationing was the name of the game, aerograms made it easier to communicate with loved ones and soldiers.
nowadays you couldn't send a traditional aerogram because they are too light! i've seen some booklets of fold and mailers here and there and i would be surprised if the post office let you mail them. they are far too weak, and far too thin - less than the weight of a postcard!
my aerograms are made of heavy 70 lbs cardstock, do not require licking, are more private than a postcard and waste less paper than a greeting card + envelope. plus - total time saver - all you need is the stamp!
