Handwritten Facebook post
In an extremely digital age, we miss the human touch.
You can tell it by the frequent use of modern fonts that imitate handwriting, calligraphy or hand-lettering. And that’s just one example.
Just look around.
Handmade stopped being just the next trend a long time ago.
It’s here to stay.
You can spot it on restaurant menus, in clothing design, beer or wine labels, on the walls inside a coffee shop, in TV commercials, YouTube videos and even on your girlfriend’s (or someone else’s) panties.
That’s why I said “What if?” and decided to see what happens if from now on my each and every facebook post or comment comes in the form of a handwritten note.
I think that:
- It’s more personal. Imagine the feeling when someone sends you a letter using regular mail and the small piece of paper arrives in your P.O. Box. You can’t replace the smell of the miles it travelled.
- Because it’s harder to do it, posting and commenting in handwriting leads to less junk-posts. You take your time. You do it only when you really have something to say.
So, here’s how to do it:
All you need is:
- A pen
- A notebook
- A dry glue-stick
- A piece of black paper
- Your smartphone’s camera (missing on the photo above because it was used for taking it)
And, finally, here’s a short video that will lead you through the process:
That’s it! Thank you for your time! ☺
