I want this story to be one of the best long distance relationships gifts! My girlfriend and I share a love for Star Wars! We met at a club one night and immediately fell for each other after I asked her to dance to our favorite DJ. Recreate a Star Wars version of this story where instead of the club, we meet at the cantina from Star Wars, replace the DJ with the flute playing aliens, and draw us in an epic lightsaber fight to replace the dancing.
Tellinga (like telling a story) creates handcrafted mail art that tells your story. Mail art, also known as postal art, is an artistic movement centered on sending artwork through the postal service. Premium 5" x 7" postcards are hand-drawn by a Tellinga artist and placed in a brown grocery bag envelope with the customer's address used as the return address. Before your card is shipped, a charity stamp and custom wax seal are applied. Afterward, your story's digital copies are sent to your email to share online with family and friends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight breast cancer, Alzheimer's, and PTSD.
