A dispatch from the field here!
I sent a response card out to a recent customer of Superb Snail Mail to get a feel of how the whole thing went over.
Samantha received a postcard, followed by a letter, and then a carefully crafted and personalized package; interactive according to her tastes (I sent her a questionnaire beforehand).

Here are her comments:
The worst thing about Superb Snail Mail?
The best thing about SSM?
"Creative. Handmade. Thoughtful."
Ideas for getting the word out about SSM:
"Offer a giveaway?? Get reviewed by a well-known blog or in a magazine."
Other comments: "I totally enjoyed this! I couldn't wait to get the mail!"
Here are pictures of her response care. Some of the material I used: collage, decals, and interesting paper.
So, friends, can you help me get the word out? Today Only 8 days remain, and it doesn't look like this project will go through. Let's give it a big final push and see if it'll work!
Thanks for your support!
