Sending a card is the perfect way to ketchup with a friend from Pittsburgh
There has never been a better time to send a little snail mail. Thanks to COVID-19, most of us haven’t had a chance to catch up with family and friends in person. Since most vacations and trips to see family have been postponed sending a card is a perfect socially distant way to reach out to a friend.
All of these greeting cards are made by Pittsburgh artists. Pick up a few cards and send a little bit of Pittsburgh to someone’s mailbox. One of the artists will even sign and mail the cards for you, scroll down for the details.
