We’re heading into the holiday period and if you’ve forgotten what it’s like to send hand written greetings, here’s a chance to revive that tradition.

Felt makes it easy to send cards featuring your own handwriting through your iPhone or iPad. Just download the app and then design a card perfect for any occasion you need to send a greeting: graduation, wedding, congratulations—you name it!

Here’s how it works:

Scroll through your photos and select one that would be great for a card, or you can select a design out of Felt’s own library. There are hundreds of options to choose from on the site.

Next: use your finger or stylus to write a message. If your handwriting seems lacking on the screen, there are some cool designer fonts you can use.

Add in a handwritten address and you’re all done. Felt will print your card, seal it in a square envelope and even put on a hand-applied first class stamp. Your recipient will think it came straight from you, and really, it did.

The pricing begins at $3. That’s for one square card created on an iPhone, plus envelope and postage. All cards are printed on premium Mohawk paper and mailed within 24 hours of your order. The recipient will think you wrote it and stamped it yourself.

It can’t get more simple and affordable to reach out in a personal way–unless of course, you go old-school and buy an actual card. But who does that these days? Felt is a great way to remember people for any occasion throughout the year, but with the holidays approaching, you might find it more useful now than in July.

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S., alpine touring (2nd) and splitboarding (5th) also rank high

The stats are in for 2023, and it tells us that Pickleball is the undeniable frontrunner in growth over the past four years. According to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA), the racket sport has grown over 170% in the past four years. But it's not alone in seeing enormous growth. Sports participation has continued to grow as we move out of the pandemic, including several outdoor activities — most notably winter sports — and previously fringe sports.

Ingrained in our human nature is the need to feel part of something big that connects us to others. Movements, sports, and ideologies all fit this bill, and the more people who take part, the more we feel validated in our desire to play or push ourselves in that sport. Marginalized or new sports may appeal to those willing to take a risk on an all-new activity, but until that sport gets some traction, you might end up spending hundreds of dollars on a short-lived hobby.

Hitting a baseball is hard, but Babe Ruth makes it look easy

We all know that hitting a baseball is not as easy as it may seem. You've got to be incredibly precise, and given the speeds that your average fastball hits, you have a remarkably narrow window to actually hit the ball. What's also true, though, is that people have been swinging bats at balls for more than 100 years, and for a lot of that time, the best hitters have been getting paid quite a bit to do it.

One of the best hitters of all time was undoubtedly Babe Ruth, and in a recently resurfaced video, he offers a pretty succinct explanation of two different types of hitting. As the Great Bambino explains, there were two popular styles of hitting at the time. The first was called "choke-hitting," and the second "swing-hitting."
