Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Derek Blasburg, the man who once used cats at their full potential (i.e. to explain party etiquette), is here to help you out after the holidays have passed, when you're hungover from too much cheer and booze, and too tired to formulate thoughtful thank you's. Behold: the "Hand Written Letter Helper" stationary at Opening Ceremony.

Blasburg let Fashionista in on a few extra writing tips too:

"Do your best to write clearly, or else you'll look like a serial killer. If you make a mistake, just draw a line through the error instead of making a big, unsightly scribble. And always make sure you have enough postage or else all this handwork will be for naught."
