Preview For Card Orders

Ladies and Gentlemen…I am so happy to introduce a little preview to the readers for the cards and stationary I will soon have available for sale. Check out the pictures, and let me know your favorites!card halloweencardvalentinescard

I will try to maintain a solid stock through each holiday, as well as some general cards for everyday use. I truly hope these designs will inspire you to bring back the written letter. Additionally, we will start to cover what to include in a Christmas card (and what to not include), as well as how to address the envelope.

Fun fact for the day: When combining a husband’s and wife’s name with no titles, you list the wife’s name first. Ex: Jane and John Smith. The old Southern rule of thumb is “You never separate a man from his name.” If you use titles, in this case, it would be Mr. and Mrs. John Smith.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, and I will answer you privately (if you prefer) or will answer via the blog. Thanks for reading!

Getting Back To the Basics

Oh my goodness, I am SO excited to announce that I will be selling Cavallini & Co. cards soon! They are beautiful, vintage cards that will help us all get back to the basics of sending snail mail.vintage cards

Although most EE’s (etiquette experts) now agree that e-mail and e-vites are comparable to their slower counterparts, there is something about receiving a hand-written note that cannot be duplicate
d. The thought and time behind the act cannot be reproduced. Therefore, when this offer presented itself, I decided it was too good to pass up.

BUT! I need your help. Would you prefer more basic, blank cards? Do you like the holiday variety? I’d love to know your preference.

Now, a few fun facts about snail mail. The most formal way to send a letter is stamped and hand-delivered. The theory behind it is it shows the recipient you are willing to pay for the letter to be delivered, but it’s important enough to you to deliver in person. In my opinion, anything delivered electronically should be saved for informal get-togethers and close friends, NOT weddings or other formal events. However, save-the-dates are, overall, considered to be appropriate to be delivered electronically.

As a practice, I tend to send post cards and letters via snail mail for most holidays. Holidays are very important to me, and this is just one way to make them even more special. So, which is your preference for receiving mail – electronically or snail?

Excuse me while I go check the mail…
