ThankYouPen: Snail Mail Goes Digital. Wait, what?

Now you never have to forget another birthday. But you still have the option.

A new app- ThankYouPen, has just blown my mind a little bit. Like many nerds, I have a bad memory for the sorts of things that tend to offend people when forgotten. Birthdays, anniversaries, Thank-You all piles up around me. If I could just do that stuff via email, all would be well. But a lot of people today still place more value in a handwritten note. If you want your loved ones to feel special, you have to be a little old-fashioned.

At least, that's how it was before ThankYouPen came about. Now delivering handwritten letters will be as easy as buying an episode of House. In fact, you'll be able to send off your letter while watching House. All you do is download the (free) ThankYouPen app on your iPad and fire off an email with your message on it.

The folks at ThankYouPen will address a card of your choice and handwrite your message inside it. You pay in the app and ThankYouPen takes care of everything else. Prices range from $5.95 for fancy illustrated cards, to just three or four dollars for letter stationary and elegant triple debossed envelopes.

ThankYouPen even helps you remember holidays and special events. Program in your anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays and you'll be automatically prompted when its time to send a card. Even if you don't want to pay for the service, it's useful to have a free app keeping track of all that for you.

If you live on the road- or overseas, ThankYouPen will be much more practical (and possibly less expensive) than sending letters from your point of origin. Space cadets rejoice! Technology has once again saved us from ourselves.
