On Valentine's Day of 2015, I launched a Love Letters to Indianapolis campaign, asking people to tell the world why they love Indy by submitting a love letter to the city. I've collected over 30 letters (electronically) so far, and have been posting them online and throughout the city.  

After launching the campaign, the Indianapolis Yelp Senior Community Manager reached out about an idea to bring the campaign to paper. She connected me with the ever-so-talented Jessie Eskew of No. 18 Paper Co., a local letterpress and paper company. Jessie and I worked together to create 1,000 handmade #loveindy postcards to pass out at the Yelp Paint the Town Red event on March 19th. The best part? We brought a 100+ year-old letterpress to the event, so attendees could press their own postcards. On the back of the postcard, Jessie and I had already pressed the address of The Hall (old city hall), so people could actually mail in their Love Letter to Indy.
