Dear: The Art and Elegance of Letter Writing in Strathmore’s New Promotion

Press release from the issuing company

[Cohoes, NY] — Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. announces the release of, Dear:, the first of many Strathmore Writing System promotions to come in 2006.

Dear: offers practical advice and words of encouragement for the lost art of letter writing. Through this promotion, Strathmore reminds readers of the power of putting pen to paper.
