JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year 196 million roses, along with traditional sweets like chocolate and candy, are purchased by romantic souls as Valentine's Day gifts. Alone these demonstrations of affection are fleeting at best. Sending a handwritten heartfelt note, card or love letter that can become a cherished keepsake adds an element that can withstand the test of time and even be shared with future generations. What could be more touching than discovering a handwritten love letter written to your grandmother decades ago?
"Let's be honest, we don't save the texts or tweets we receive no matter what the content, but I've saved every handwritten card and romantic note that my husband's ever sent me," said Ariann Langsam, Director of Consumer Marketing of Pilot Corporation of America. "Throughout the centuries, written words of love ranging from letters to poems have made their mark, and have become part of our culture. Even in today's digital world, nothing can replace the connectivity and intimacy of the handwritten word."
For those who need a little help finding the right words, or don't want to worry about postage, Pilot is helping romantics make a lasting impression this Valentine's Day. Bringing the written word into the digital space, the Pilot Love Guru will once again be playing cupid by creating unique messages of love as part of a special program on its official Facebook (Pilot Pen), Twitter (@PilotPenUSA), Instagram (@PilotPenUSA) and Snapchat (pilotpenusa). Pilot's 2013 Love Guru Campaign connected hundreds of valentines, and our goal is to spread even more written love this year.
