Top Ten Reasons to Use Snail Mail

Ever had to decide whether it would be better to send an e-mail or a real letter with a stamp or two on it?

Well, fret no more, here's a summary of the top ten reasons to use snail mail vs. e-mail that appears on the ChangeOf Address.org website...

#1. It’s exciting to receive a personal letter or note.
#2.You can add confetti or creative designs to your letter or card.

#3. There’s more privacy to snail mail.

#4. Emails can get lost in junk mail filters. 

#5. Emails are prone to quicker judgments and rash decisions.

#6. You can send more variety of items via snail mail.

#7. People tend to elaborate more with snail mail. 

#8. There’s no virus attached.

#9. It’s too easy to forward your email content to thousands of people worldwide (on accident).

#10. The check is in the mail.

The piece concludes with advice you might want to keep in mind, "So these aren’t the only reasons but they are some good ones. An honorable mention that didn’t make the list is the excuse that you can always use for a greeting being late (birthday card, graduation card, etc.). You can say you had trouble getting to the post office or that your letter was lost in the mail, but be careful with that one though as most people are smart enough to look at the postmark date."
