Hey dudes, do you remember way back when people used to have giant desks and write letters to each other all day? Major #fbf, I know. There are some of us out there that still practice this ancient art form, believe it or not. Though there’s the ease of sending an email or setting up a Facebook invite, there’s nothing that has quite the same amount of value as receiving a hand-written letter or card in the mailbox. For grooms, letters can be a great way to ask your groomsmen to be in your ceremony, to send personal announcements and for sending thank you cards after it’s all over. Stationery also makes for a mature, personalized gift for the true gentlemen in your life.

Surprisingly enough, there’s a lot of print options out there, with options to even have your own custom items. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite places for business cards, postcards, stationery all all kinds of other things you can use to personalize your letters.
