There was much to be thankful for over the holidays: gift giving, hospitality and visits. To acknowledge this, it’s kind — and proper — to express and send thanks.
With text messages and email used so prevalently, I am traditionalist about mailing paper thank-you notes. Finding noteworthy stationery and greeting cards can make the task much less taxing and more personal and heartwarming.
Clever and artistic papers abound. Lou lou the clothing and accessories store in Carytown, has now filled its upstairs mezzanine exclusively with paper goods.
From laugh-out-loud and snarky cards from Sapling Press (in conjunction with grouchyrabbit.com) to the elegant (Garance Doré for Rifle Paper Co. and fine (Alexa Pulitzer), you’ll find a diverting variety of papers to express thanks, birthday and every day wishes.
Pictured are thank you cards by Ghost Academy, hand-inked in Long Beach, Ca. I adore their designs. They are printed using the centuries-old process of block relief printing. All are on recycled cardstock.
Cards are just under $5 each. I’ve bought thank you cards and, already, some Valentines.
