Too busy this holiday season or any other time of the year to write handwritten notes, no problem! You now have Bond, not James, who can take care of all that for you. In this case, technology will reproduce your own handwriting, or any other if you prefer, and dispatch all of these carefully crafted personalized missives for you. Now, of course, there is a price for this convenience, but who has the time any more to send all these “thank-yous,” and all I can tell you is that Bond’s business is booming, at least in the New York area.
Good manners and good business sense all wrapped into one thanks to robotics. These robots, however, can be programmed to write in your own handwritten script or any other you may prefer. There are currently 200 robotic writing machines in Bond’s Manhattan facilities. An invitation only service costs $1,200 a year and provides clients with a personalized mobile app to send notes in their own handwriting on custom stationary. Other personalized messaging services range from $3.50 to $2.50 per card (corporate accounts with large orders).
Most customers like the fact that it is more than a text message, and is perceived as a more thoughtful sentiment. No one will ever have to know it came from a robot! And it comes in an envelope with a wax seal, a very thoughtful, personal touch, from anybody or a machine.
