Getting a little something in the post has taken on an extra significance for many people at this time. Yes, so many of us have e-mail, but there’s always something special about receiving something physical from a loved-one.
Public Health England has advised that people receiving letters and parcels in the post are not at risk of contracting COVID-19. From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects. This complements the highly publicised guidance from Public Health England for people to wash their hands more often than usual using soap and hot water. See www.gov.uk/coronavirus for all official guidance.
You can order any of my items to be delivered directly from me to a different address to your own.
However, it occurred to me that there are times when you’d like to add your own words in your own handwriting. My greetings cards, for example – you want to receive them yourself, write your own message and then post them on to the recipient.
So because you may currently want to avoid visiting a shop or Post Office to buy stamps, and you may not have any stamps at home, I’ve added the option to all my greetings cards to include a First Class ‘Large’ Stamp in your delivery. This means you can post your card straight into a post box, without having to go into a shop or interact with anyone.
All my 100% recycled greetings cards with brooches and crochet motifs come with a sturdy box envelope for onward posting to the recipient. Just address the envelope, stick on the included stamp and pop it in your nearest (or most isolated) post box.
Did you know you can also buy stamps online at the Post Office and your supermarket may also allow you to order them as part of a grocery delivery?
This does only apply to UK customers of course, I’m sorry there’s nothing I can do to help overseas customers in this way.
This unprecedented global challenge is making us innovate in all kinds of ways – this is just a tiny something that I hope helps someone.
