An Added Touch

My love of all things monogrammed is no secret. However, not only can it become cost-prohibitive to monogram everything, it also isn’t time efficient. Usually having a monogram added to something easily adds 3-5 business days to your order. So, for items you replace frequently, allow me to suggest an embosser.

embosserOh my goodness, this has been life changing. Instead of waiting extra time and paying extra money to have envelopes, paper hand towels, stationary, etc. personalized, I can do it myself. While there are likely several places you can order an embosser from, allow me to tell you about my experience.

My mom and dad purchased the embosser for me as a Christmas gift from Everything Unique, a local boutique in Sulphur Springs. Here is their facebook link:

Once ordered, it had a certificate where I could go online to pick my style, monogram, etc. I put in the certificate number, and, like magic, it was delivered to my home just like that! Truly, it was that simple. Also, now that I have the embosser, I can get different plates to have a married monogram, our address or anything else that I desire (well, that will fit on something the size of a half-dollar). Here are some examples!

I love that a one-time purchase can add that something special to your stationary. I’m also no longer limited to paper styles of the monogramming company. It definitely has a simple, classy touch. Do you have an embosser? Would you use one? Thanks for reading!

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!
