Handwritten notes in the era of email

Writing and receiving a handwritten note is almost unheard of in our age of electronic communication, which makes getting something handwritten so exciting. Getting a handwritten note is rare and nostalgic, something everyone who checks the mailbox knows. Bond is a company trying to change that. With robots.

What is this madness? Hear me out. Bond prides itself on being “technology for thoughtful companies.” They want to help companies personalize their communication and strengthen relationships by offering the ability to handwrite your letters with a machine. Considering they don’t even teach cursive in school anymore, this company might be onto something with their technology.

According to Bond, handwriting isn’t dead, it just needed a little updating. Handwritten helps your notes make an impact, that’s no secret. Momma always told you to send out handwritten thank-you notes. So you’ve always known it’s important, but it’s so time consuming. You have to dig out the stamps, find the envelopes, their address, suffer through hand cramps. That’s where Bond comes in.

Here’s how Bond works

Here’s the rundown on how the process works: You send your message to Bond who then writes your message robotically in your own handwriting on really fancy stationary. You get to pick the paper, ink, and they’ll even close your envelopes with a wax seal if you wish. Bond mails it for you too.

Their robot will memorize your handwriting and keep it on file for whenever you may need it. If you write in chicken scratch, you can pick one of their handwriting styles. For instance, you can pick Sigmund Freud’s handwriting. I kid you not.

applying this to your professional life

Everyone loves getting a handwritten letter. Now think about that in your professional life. A handwritten note can help build relationships or help you get your foot in the door with a new client. Lots of mail order businesses also send personalized notes with their products and this would streamline that process.

It’s time consuming to send out a handwritten thank you card to every single client. On the flip side, emails are easy to ignore, delete, or end up in a spam folder somewhere. You can utilize Bond’s service to make the whole communication process easier and take that next step to have an advantage with a more considerate approach. One thing is for sure, sending a handwritten note will cause you to be remembered and that is worth a whole lot in the professional world.
