Tatjana M. Smith

Tatjana M. Smith is on a mission to make the mail magical again. At a time when the postal service is under pressure, Tatjana is inspired by her life-long love of snail mail and relationships that are cultivated through hand-written delights.

Her flirty, expressive cards and envelopes remind us of Japanese etegami. Each piece is unique, drawn and lettered by hand. An extravagance of charm.
