A Service That Writes Cards for You

halfway across the country. Well, not on Saturdays anymore. But still.
Anyway, you should really get in on it. As for what to send...
Meet Black Sheep Postal Service
, a new concept that sends—and more importantly,
writes—handwritten cards for you. It’s taking orders now.
This is How to Fake Like You Are Nice and Caring 101. First, sign up for the service, then submit the names
and addresses of anyone you’d ever want to send a card to. Finally, pick out an occasion. Birthdays are
good, and they also do holidays—soon including, no kidding, Shark Week.
The guy behind this writes a handwritten note on a thick, oversized postcard. (You can personalize your
message in the comment box while ordering.) Then, without any further action from you, he—get
this—applies a postage stamp and mails it
. After that, your chosen recipient will receive the
card, even despite the potential interference of rain, sleet or snow.
Now, if you’re specifically wondering about a certain upcoming greeting-card holiday, you’re in luck.
See, the guy behind this will hand-cut a giant, 24-by-16-inch heart—and get it to your giftee on
Your commitment to Presidents’ Day cards is inspiring.
