Creative Dad Project Preview – Mail for the Kids

creativedad-mailerpreview-lgShhhhhh! I’m going to let you in on a secret I’m working on!

When I was a child in the 1970s and 1980s, I used to see many commercials for a subscription service that sent printed cards of wildlife creatures to you through the mail. You also received a case to place them in.

Here’s the secret part! Fast forward to the 2010s, and I have two sons who love to get snail mail from the mailbox, but never seem to get much. To give them some mail to look forward to, I’m creating our own customized versions of card subscription services for each of them. The younger one will receive cards portraying Pixar Cars characters, while the older one will receive cards featuring Star Wars items. I’ll print them on a nice color printer we own, using premium card stock. Envelopes will also be custom created and printed, so as many traces of me as possible will be removed. We will drop these in the mail every week or two.

So if you know our sons, don’t let on that these are coming from their parents. 🙂 When I get a good amount under my belt, I’ll post what we have going and give a little more detail. I was so excited about it, I had to go ahead and throw something out there!
