February's theme is a sweet one... let's send chocomail!

If there's one thing we love just as much (if not more) than snail mail, it's good chocolate. Dark, milk, white or ruby, we'll happily nibble on it all, so we couldn't resist a theme all around chocolate. 

This month, why not mail something sweet to friends and loved ones near or far. I mean, the only thing better than a good mail day is finding chocolate in your mailbox, right?

And really, is there a better time than February to celebrate all things chocolatey? Well, at least up here in the Northern Hemisphere where winter is waning but you definitely still need some extra treats to get through the season. Plus the temperature is perfect for shipping tasty goodness - no risk of melting on route. For our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, you might need to take less literal approach to sending chocolate mail!

Whether you choose chocolate from a local chocolatier or pick something up by the supermarket checkout, we're sure your loved ones and pen pals will be delighted to discover something sweet in their mailbox!

So how does this whole monthly mail challenge thing work?

It's quite simple really. We'll reveal a theme and if it inspires you, you'll create pretty mail based on that theme. Mail it off to someone you know (or email us for a partner - we'll connect a limited number of people each month), then post images of your pretty mail on Instagram using the tag #prettypostal.

By taking part in our monthly mail challenges, you'll connect with people both on and offline, get inspired, try new things and spread good cheer.

Over the course of the month, we'll share #prettypostal images we love on our Instagram feed.

Over the course of the year, you can expect monthly themes, a handful of mail swaps, features on mail artists and small businesses and giveaways.

We do hope you'll join us for this fresh new take on Pretty Postal in 2020. Can't wait to see what tasty treats you mail this month!
