Did you know that today is National Handwriting Day? When was the last time you crafted a personal note, or letter? With all the technology today, handwritten notes seem to have fallen to the wayside. Having three kids, I have taught all of them the importance of sending personalized notes and thank you cards. I do make them hand write thank you cards every time they receive a gift and my husband has shown them that even in the business world, a personal handwritten note, even if it is short and sweet, makes a person stand out. 

National Handwriting Day was established by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977 and January 23rd was chosen to honor John Hancock’s birthday, you know the guy with the iconic signature on the Declaration of Independence!

I have compiled a list of 15 fun handwriting fonts, just click on the links below!

    As a believer in handwritten letters, I feel that it is my duty to seek out opportunities to connect with my fellow humans in thoughtfully written cards and letters. The last handwritten letter(s) that I wrote were for the charity Girls Love Mail. This charity was founded by a breast cancer survivor who felt that newly diagnosed women and children of breast cancer needed words of love, encouragement, and positive vibes as they faced a difficult, and sometimes scary future.

    Writing these letters, that are later handed out randomly to the brave and beautiful children and women facing breast cancer, has given me a real sense of purpose. I thoughtfully create each letter that I send and try my best to tailor my words to be genuine and uplifting to the recipient. This is a great giveaway that will most assuredly be put to good use brightening up my handwritten letters to Girls Love Mail for many, many letters to come.

    Thank you for this awesome giveaway! I will await with writing fingers crossed.

    The last time I wrote and received hand written notes was when my husband was in Vietnam. He wrote to me every day but then that was before cell phones, computers etc. When I was living in Calif. at the same time my mother wrote me letters every day from New York. I so enjoyed the letters.

    I always write small notes to myself to remind me of things. I can’t remember the last time I wrote a letter to someone though.

    I wrote hand written letters in the Christmas cards that I sent out.

    I have a letter signed by my grandfather that I treasure very much. I try and hold onto written things with sentimental meaning.

    My daughter is in 6th grade and I still write little notes for her lunch several times a week. Recently, she found a bunch from a few years back and it warmed her so much and she talked about them for hours. I still have some from my grandmother that I absolutely treasure but I never realized how much they would mean until after she passed.

    I can’t believe that the schools here in my community don’t teach handwriting. What a shame!

    I have a handwritten note from my grandmother that I treasure! She had written down several of her recipes for me and included a note… I’ve scanned them in case anything were to happen to the originals.

    I have lots of handwritten notes and things from my grandparents and other ancestors. I love them, they are so fun to read and see.

    I love handwritten notes. They mean so much and I love being able to go back and look at them and remember how I felt at the time. We send handwritten thank you notes. It’s something I’m trying to pass down to our daughter by involving her in the process too.

    I wrote my husband a note for his birthday a couple of weeks ago. We write each other a lot. I have a letter from my mom that I cherish.

    I don’t write a lot of notes. The last one I wrote was recent though and it was to my daughter. I love to doodle though so you will usually find me with a pen, marker or pencil at any given time. I do have a note from my Pop Pop Parker. He gave this to me back in Junior High – probably 40 some years ago. I do miss him. At least now he has my Mom and my daughter up in Heaven with him. He was a great man.

    I write notes by hand on a regular basis. I like to write genuine thank you notes to people. I write letters to my friends when I want to cheer them up or share a story. My most recent note was to one of my managers that is moving to another department (they rotate departments every few years). I told him how much I appreciated his leadership and guidance, as well as always being there for me to talk about my personal life as well. I think it is so important to let others know how we feel before it is too late to do so.

    I write notes a lot but haven’t written a letter since my son was at boot camp.

    OK, I’ll admit that I don’t write handwritten notes very often. I’ll just jot a short note on a card.
