About Dario...

Please write your CITY + DATE on your card (ex: New York • May 26, 2024)

Hello and welcome,

I’m an Italian gay man living and working in San Francisco as a tech writer, but www.etsy.com/shop/scriptoriaregalia is my little labor of love. I ♥ reading, writing, beautiful penmanship, thoughtful details, and exchanging meaningful notes.

What you write on your postcard is very important to me. Please share a poem or a quote you love, or anything else that will make your postcard a treasure when I find it again tucked in a book or elsewhere in the years to come.
