We’re not like a regular stationery company, we’re a cool stationery company.
But seriously, we’re pretty different from the other guys. We started Nice because we noticed something troubling and wanted to do something about it: despite having more online connectivity than ever, we live in an era of unprecedented social isolation. In the last 50 years, rates of loneliness have doubled in the United States. A 2018 survey found that almost half of Americans reported feeling alone, left out, and isolated. That’s a problem worth solving.
80 years of research
Don’t take our word for it. Dr. Vivek Murthy, former U.S. Surgeon General, says loneliness is a major health issue that’s much more prevalent than people realize. It puts the body into a chronic stress state, undermining our mental health and predisposing us to serious physical conditions like heart disease, stroke, metastatic cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
The good news? The Harvard Study of Adult Development, the most comprehensive study of emotional well-being in history, indicates that quality relationships are the number one predictor of happiness and lifespan — more than genes, IQ, or income. Robert Waldinger, director of the study, says, “Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period.”
The pressure’s on these days. We’re working longer hours and living farther apart from one another. Busy schedules are hard to coordinate, so we’re seeing less of each other and skipping regular calls & video chats. Social media seems like a convenient substitute when we’re craving that connection, but can leave us feeling worse off when we get sucked into a rabbit hole of distraction and social comparison. Emails and texts are useful for work and coordinating plans, but often result in fractured personal conversations that lose steam until they get completely lost in the shuffle.
Handwritten mail has the do-it-on-your-time ease of digital communication, but is stripped of the expectations of instant delivery and response. It’s a reflective process free from the distractions of a smartphone — a rewarding way to slow down and change up your routine. It’s a timeless, tangible, and deeply personal way to sustain meaningful one-on-one conversations throughout your lifetime, at your own pace. There’s truly nothing else like it.
It’s never been easier
While some stationery brands have history dating back centuries, no other brand has been built like us. From day one, we’ve worked to adapt the traditional stationery model to address the particular concerns of people living today. All of our paper is ethically sourced and priced to be practical for frequent use. Plus, every kit is always bundled with stamps — no extra trip to the post office. For the first time, all you have to do is write and send. Mail made simple.
It begins with you
In a world where fear, suffering, polarization, and instant gratification often reign, you have the opportunity to set a different example. It may seem insignificant, but going the extra mile to spread love, compassion, appreciation, and kindness can change the course of your life — and it’s contagious. Give and you shall receive. You have the power to set off a chain reaction of exchanges that help make the world a little bit better, one person at a time.
