With the Internet playing such a big part in the way we communicate nowadays (via email, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.), its so nice to actually receive a REAL card or invitation in the mail once in awhile! Don't get us wrong--I mean, we love the Internet and all the fun and interesting things it provides, but we love receiving (and sending) cards the old fashion way -- in the MAIL! It seems to mean so much more because you know that a bit more thought, as well as time and effort, was put into it.
We recently came across Paper Culture, which offers premium quality, eco-friendly stationery in a variety of cute and modern designs, and they make sending them out just as easy as sending an email or tweeting on Twitter! Their modern designs feature clean lines, bold colors, and fresh typography. All of their cards and invitations are printed on high quality, heavy stock paper (130 lb. weight, when most other companies use only 80-110 lb. weight) with their signature, rounded corners, which we absolutely love because it adds a bit of sophistication that other cards just don't seem to have! All of their products, including the envelopes and even the packaging, are made from recycled paper, and they also donate toPaper Culture Cares.
Also, Paper Culture offers a Mail & Message service, which is quite fabulous! Provide them with the addresses, and they will address, stamp, and mail the cards for you! How wonderful is that?! Want your card personalized? You can have a personal message printed on the back of each card so that you can say whatever you wish on one or all of the cards! This awesome service is FREE (you just pay for the cost of the stamps) until Jan 1, 2010!
