ENTER TO WIN TWO PACKS OF LETTERPRESS THANK YOU CARDS BY JANUARY 16th!!!
say-thanks
There’s plenty of research showing that gratitude promotes happiness — expressing thanks helps you hone in on what’s positive in your life, and everyone loves to be thanked and appreciated! So this year we are promising to say thanks!

Here are perfect occasions for writing a thank you note:

  • A gift
  • A dinner or date
  • A handwritten card
  • A great conversation
  • A thoughtful action, like helping you with a project or chore
  • A long-term friendship or partnership

You can write thank you notes to family, friends, work associates, teachers, or those who provide a helpful hand day by day like your mail man or garbage collector.

Great thank you notes are brief and heartfelt. Here are some samples:

Thank you for the wonderful birthday card. I am so grateful that you thought of me.

Thank you for your the great conversation we had yesterday. I appreciate your support, and I am so glad we’re friends!

Here are some tactics we’ll be trying out in 2014:

  • Keep a stash of thank you notes, stamps, and a pen by your bedside. Write a note at the end of the day. (Think of it as a twist on writing “gratitude journal,” which some researchers advocate — one that has a positive impact on other people’s lives as well as your own)
  • Write thank you notes right away — the feelings will be more authentic and meaningful.

What are some of the ways you like to say thank you? Post a comment and we’ll pick a winner next Thursday the 16th to receive your very own stash of 12 letterpress thank you cards (featured above)!

To our amazing customers & fans, T H A N K Y O U ! We have made the incredibly tough call to throw in the towel for all custom invitations. Our intentions are to expand on our letterpress greeting card collection, and eventually branch out into more gifts & products. We are forever grateful for all of your kind words and support. That being said, our wedding invitations will be available for a limited time through Soiree San Francisco, so please don’t hesitate to contact them for all your dreamy wedding desires. Wishing you a very H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !

We created coasters, fringe numbers, and a table runner all dipped in gold! Head to Style Me Pretty for our full DIY break down.

Happy New Years Eve!

Eunice’s baby girl Imogen was born on August 16th of this year. For the birth announcement, Eunice went for a hand-illustrated approach for the main, and drew inspiration from our sunshine stationery for the french/chinese insert. She used printstagram for the photo. Printstagram is an awesome service that prints your instagram photos on little squares and ships them to you within the week! We are all smitten with the outcome of this birth announcement!
