Summer is coming (probably), and with it a barrage of occasions for which you are undoubtedly unprepared: Mother's Day (May 11), Father's Day (June 15), and of course, wedding season. Pretty soon, you'll shopping for roses, or a tie--or, even worse for your wallet, browsing registries. And you'll probably want to pick up whatever Hallmark's "Thoughtful Sentiment Generator" has printed and stocked shelves with this month. Or, you could request a Pixiehammer Press original letter for Mom, Dad, bride, and/or groom.
An offshoot of Write Club, Pixiehammer Press (previously featured in our Gift Guide) is Ian Belknap and Lindsay Muscato. Because, per their Etsy shop, "Not everyone's good with words. Not everyone has a typewriter," Belknap and Muscato will draft missives to help you express your gratitude, repressed-and-released anger, or congratulations. These custom letters, created on vintage typewriters, are just $9.75 each, and include a "brief, personal interview" via phone or Skype, during which you can describe your relationship with the letter's recipient, be it precious or contentious (Pixiehammer won't judge you).
So, if you'd like your Mother's Day message rightly Cyrano'd, you must place your order by 5pm on Wednesday, May 7 to ensure delivery by Saturday, May 10. Pixiehammer will also be at Here's the Story's anniversary show on Sunday, May 4. Be sure to check out their Etsy shop for updates on Father's Day and wedding season-related deadlines.
