Cartes Blanches

We released our “White-on-White” collection last spring at the National Stationery Show and it’s proving to be very popular with our retailers and our online customers. The cards are letterpress printed using 110lb., 100% cotton Crane Lettra paper with Pantone 7527 ink, which is more like a pale taupe color — but we’re still calling them “White-on-White”, okay?!!

Status Poste

I wanted to design something that was modern, yet not too sterile so I used one of my favorite fonts, Lady Rene — so pretty and lovely. Then I illustrated the delicate little twig shapes with little motifs that corresponded with each outside message.

Sending Love

I wanted this collection of six designs to include cards you could use for every day correspondence such as “Sending Love” and “Status Poste” {that one is our little wink to Facebook}. ;)  But I also wanted to include designs that could be used as sympathy or encouragement cards, such as “You’re On My Mind” and “Positive Thoughts”. Also, there is one design in this collection which is a congratulatory card, and that’s the “Hip Hip Hooray” design. Lastly, the collection contains a thank you card design which says “Many Thanks”. All are my favorites (of course), but I’d have to say that “Status Poste” seems to be edging out the others by just a bit, in terms of popularity.

All six designs come with corresponding Kraft paper brown envelopes. All of our White-on-White cards are sold as singles in a cello sleeves, however we do offer the Status Poste, Sending Love, and Many Thanks cards as boxed sets of eight as well.

As always, I hope you enjoy them as much I enjoyed creating them for YOU…
