Find A Pen Pal

If you’ve been wanting to find a pen pal then you’ve come to the right place. If you’re reading this because you’ve stumbled upon this post and now love the idea of having a pen pal, then you’re in the right place, too!

Firstly, let me tell you that there is LOADS of pen pal and happy mail related content here, so you can have a look around for ideas to help you with your pen pal journey if this is all new to you.

There’s also lots of pen pal videos over on my YouTube channel, from tips to easy ideas to pen pal with me videos, so do check those out. This one might be a good place to start as it gives you some ideas for easy happy mail using very few supplies so you can get started.

If you’re reading this and wondering whether a pen pal could be for you, check out that post and I’m going to just advise you on this and say yes, it could be great for you.

Messing about with stationery, receiving lovely post, making friends with people all over the country or world, what’s not to love? 

If you’re concerned you might not have time for this, just ease into it gently with 1 or 2 new pen pals and see how you get on with that. 

I talked more about my life with pen pals here recently, if you’d like to read a little more about that.

There’s no age limit with this hobby, anyone can do it, and I love that we have people in our Bring Back Paper community of all ages. 

So if you’re thinking you’d like to try it, I can help you to find a pen pal.

The first way is to pop over to our Bring Back Paper Facebook group and look for a friend there. 

The second is to look over on Instagram. Use the #penpalsearch or #penpalswanted hash tags, or if you’re reading this just after I post it, you’ll find that I have a pen pal search running right now.

It was only a few days ago that I popped the thread up over on Instagram, so it’s still going strong. Do pop over there if you’d like to get more pen pals or try this for the very first time.

It’s easy to do over there and you’ll see that many people have already commented as they are looking for new pen pals.

The thing that I’ve enjoyed about this is that I had several people message me on Instagram saying that they’d love to do this, and my post must have come at just the right time for them. There’s a great mixture of people commenting, as some have lots of pen pals and have done this for years, and then some are coming to try this as a new hobby. I love that!

If you want to do this but you’re a little unsure where to begin or want some supplies, read how to start to pen pal and then pop over to my store and grab some pen pal printables. Then you’re all set!

What do you think, are you going to go and find a pen pal?
