I love, love, love greeting cards. However, I do not at all like cheesy greeting cards with a sappy message or too many words. I prefer ones that are cute, simple and straight forward – and preferably letter press. I just love the sophisticated look of letter press. If I’m looking for boxes of things like thank you cards, I turn to Etsy. But for birthday and other cards – like bridal and baby showers – I’m always running to the store at the last minute, sorting through cards, trying to find the LEAST silly one. It’s on a rare occasion when I will think ahead and make it to Papyrus or Target’s card isle.
So when Smudge Ink reached out, promising witty letter press cards for all occasions, that are printed in the USA and are eco-friendly, coming from 100% post-consumer recycled paper, I had to see them. They sent me a bunch of samples that I instantly fell in love with. And, best of all, they were all under $5. The paper quality is excellent – very thick – the color is great, and they messages are cute and simple – leaving enough room for you to write a heartfelt note in the card. Check out some of my favorites that they sent me:
These (and many, many more) can all be ordered directly from Smudge Ink’s site – so I can stock up on upcoming birthday and event cards, so I’m not running to the store at the last minute while we’re literally on the way to an event. Which means that I will now basically order everything online except for milk and ice cream…. oh, how the internet simplifies my life.
