It’s definitely gift season, that time of year when you carefully pick something you think will be enjoyed. We have called out 5 of our favorite personalized gift ideas that are items you might not have considered in the past.

Personalized Post-It Notes

1. Personalized Post-it® Notes. One of our favorite gift ideas. We mean, really…who gets these for themselves? But what a useful gift they will enjoy all year long! Perfect for little notes, messages and reminders for offices and homes. They are simply wonderful.

Cutting Boards2. Personalized Cutting Boards. Whether you select a glass or wood board, this is a really fun gift idea. The glass boards have great designs that can brighten up a kitchen and the wood ones are gorgeous and you can add a stand so it can become a room accent as well.
Personalized Barware3. Personalized Barware. We love giving a beautiful set of monogrammed wine glasses, high balls, micro brews or double old fashioned as a special holiday gift or housewarming present. We use them in our own homes too. Our guests are always impressed. These quality gifts quickly become a favorite, drink after drink.
Louisville Slugger4. A personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Sports fans of all ages will be wowed by this special collectible. Anyway, who wouldn’t love the same quality bat that Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth used. With 120 years of experience, these are bats offer the best quality wood on the market and we offer them with a personalized name, just like the pros enjoy.
Personalized Stationery5. And, of course, a wonderful box of personalized stationery. Your recipient will certainly enjoy having easy access to a personal note card when they write their holiday thank yous this season and special love notes throughout the year.

Create your own list of personal favorite gifts and elevate your gift giving this season. Personalized gifts mean you took the time to pick out something especially for that someone special. It’s a great opportunity to be sure you select something not only fantastic but also something that will be well used.

Happy holidays!

Navy is the new Black

15 Oct

Navy Is The New BlackDid you know that Navy is our #1 selling ink color?  It’s true! And it’s easy to see why.  Navy blue was even the new black on the 88th Academy Awards red carpet (for men and for women) at Oscars 2016.  Go ahead and google the phrase “Navy is the new Black” and you’ll see reporting on this from everything from fashion to home decor!

Just like clothing, navy is making a big statement in paper items from notepads to note cards and more.  It’s appropriate for men, women and children as well.  And it’s an excellent choice for practically all correspondence needs from formal to casual.  Whether you are sending a thank you note card for an interview or for a birthday present, selecting a note with a blue border, navy imprint and/or blue design is great choice.

See some personalized note cards with blue accents and consider what would be a good addition to your desk.  This holiday season, perhaps stationery would make a thoughtful present for a hostess gift, a housewarming present, a Christmas or Hanukkah gift, or a teacher gift.  There are many designs and styles (navy and many others) to choose from.

Enjoy and stay on trend with navy!

Best wishes,

Creating The Perfect Monogram

8 Oct

Monogrammed StationeryDon’t you love monograms? Since as far back as the early Greek and Roman times, rulers used their 2-letter monograms on coins and other currency to identify the ruler and the region. In the Middle Ages, artists, like Rembrandt, signed their pieces with their initials. And, the Victorian era aristocracy often used the monogram to show their high rank in society.

Today, no need to be royalty or a ruler to use a monogram! Monograms are widely used on many types of products, especially on personal stationery.  The three-initial monogram is the most popular style today and gained popularity as far back as the 18th century so this is a very old yet current tradition.

Today, monograms are an extremely popular and very stylish option and are everywhere from clothing to home decor, plus of course on notecards and other printed items.  A monogram creates a very individualized and stylish imprint.  And everyone has their own monogram! It’s a great option for men, women, teens and children.

A monogram is the art of combining initials together.  The initials represent an individual’s or a couple’s name(s). Personalized Monogrammed Notecards are ideal for many types of correspondences including uses for thank you cards, personal notes, business correspondence and more. Monogrammed stationery creates a beautiful statement and can evoke a feeling of elegance but can also be used as a fun or casual imprint on a colorful note card.

A monogram is like a little work of art that is truly your own and creates the perfect canvas for note cards. There are many different printing techniques available for monogrammed note cards including digital imprinting, thermography, blind embossed and engraved.

How Do You Create a Monogram?

A traditional monogram is typically 3 letters and represents the user’s name or a couple’s married initials. Here is a short guide to the correct order of your monogrammed letters:

For a couple like Julie and Robert Gold, you would enter the monogram order as JGR. The woman’s first name initial is typically on the left … the man’s first name initial is typically on the right… and the last name initial appears larger and in the center.

For a single person’s monogram, like Betsy Hope Friedman you would enter the monogram order as BFH. The individual’s first name initial is typically on the left … the middle name initial is typically on the right… and the last name initial appears larger and in the center.

We make it easy to create your ideal monogrammed stationery. Just enter your initials and you’re ready to go. You can then simply choose an appropriate number of cards based on your needs.

Enjoy your own personal style!

Best wishes,
