In today's digital environment, people are re-discovering the value and humanity of the handwritten word. Teaching handwriting is disappearing from schools, we commonly correspond through text message, and few people mail personalized letters anymore. Fortunately, we are experiencing a surge in the hand-written arts. For example, a quick hashtag search on social media proves that interest in calligraphy, typography, and lettering is growing. Calligraphy classes that were once waning in interest are now full. There’s a shift away from mass produced perfection to handcrafted. In packaging, the trend of handwritten lettering and hand-painted backgrounds is everywhere. Grocery chains feature handwritten signage to communicate personalized messaging. Handwriting is an expressive way to communicate and we encourage people to take the time to write something by hand.
