Our friend Chelsea of Go Forth Creative is one of the most talented gals I’ve ever met. The design work she creates for clients is jaw-droppingly beautiful, and her personal projects are equally inspiring. When Chelsea started printing and posting these “Give A Nice Note” fliers last year, the first thing I thought was, “Why didn’t I think of that?” The next thing I thought was: Must. Post these. Everywhere.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I knew this was the perfect time of year (and the perfect political climate) in which we could all use a little extra TLC. Chelsea joins us today to share her inspiration behind the #GiveANiceNote initiative, and of course, to share those darling printables.
From Chelsea: I was on a road trip, listening to The Cranberries song, Linger. The lyrics ‘you know I’m such a fool for you’ stood out to me enough to write them down. That turned into writing lists and lists of short expressions of love and gratitude.
These notes are intended to delight! For the person who sees the flyer and for the person receiving the note.
My hope is that it helps us all be a little kinder to one another day-to-day. I was at LAX and AUS airports yesterday and was sure to post up some up there — travelers (including me) need a little reminder to be more patient and nice.
I’m going to continue to post these up in Austin and cities I visit, and if you want to print off your own, I would greatly appreciate it! Now, more than ever, we need to spread love and good cheer.

- Exact-O knife or scissors
- The easiest option is to print on your home printer, on any lightweight paper you’d like. Print the front, then feed the printed front through to print the back. Prepare to do a few test runs to the front and back align properly.
- Use scissors or an exact-o knife and ruler to cut along the dashed lines on the back of the flyer.
- Tape up in any and all public places!
