Already as a tradition the 9th of October is celebrated by post people as the World Day of the Post. It is a good occasion to remind our clients of the beautiful usage of writing letters. Hand written letters. We live faster and faster, we have less and less free time. We are helped by electronic post, mobiles and SMS. It is worth one's while however to write a beautiful, long letter to people close to our heart . Maybe with a pen - as proposed on our stamp?

Let give our feelings a chance to survive in letters assiduously concealed in the deepest drawers of desks and cupboards. Such a letter written sometimes with a trembling hand can express more then words...Sometimes can survive only the sole emotion becoming a reminder of wonderful moments.
