Floral Swag Foldover Note Cards Floating Hearts Foil-Pressed Foldover Note Cards with Lined Envelopes Love Struck Stationery in Acrylic Holder

February is the month of love and a perfect time to write more love notes! You can really make someone’s day with a few simple sentences expressing your feelings. And for the perfect canvas, pick up a great box of personalized stationery. Whether you are writing a little note to your husband, boyfriend, your son or daughter or your best friend, it’s really easier than you think. And they’ll love to save them and re-read them over the years. It’s not about perfection in letter writing, it’s about sharing a feeling, a memory, a dream.

So what that many others are writing electronically. Those come and go. Putting pen to paper is long lasting. It’s really ok to write a real note! You can mail it or give it in person, leave it on a desk in a place they will find it, pack it in a lunch, or pop it in the refrigerator so they will see it in the morning. No matter what you say, you won’t go wrong. It can be long or short, funny or serious, romantic or casual. What’s most important is that it is in your own words and it sounds like you. Be yourself!

February is a wonderful time to reconnect after the holidays. Plan a special dinner date, a lunch or a breakfast. Enjoy the company of those you love and those you want to get to know better. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s time to get planning, and it’s time to get writing! Maybe give your special love a box of stationery so they can write you back!

Happy love letter writing to you!

Best wishes,

Renee

 

The Importance of a Thank You Card

25 Aug

aug-thankYouCards-001Sometimes a little thank you is all it takes to put a smile on someone’s face.  While some people are more likely to save handwriting real thank you cards for the bigger occasions such as for a wedding shower present or a wedding gift, it’s important to consider that writing notes to family, friends, co-workers, neighbors and more, even for the smaller things, means a great deal to those who receive them.

Maybe a friend brought you dinner, a neighbor walked your dog for you, you were interviewed for a job, or your cousin remembered your birthday.  Maybe a co-worker took care of an issue for you or your boss gave you a raise.  These and other kind acts are the perfect reason to send a handwritten thank you note.

aug-thankYouCards-002Saying thank you with a personalized thank you note card makes a memorable statement.  Remember to use a nice thank you card to write your note on, be genuine in your note and express how important their help has been to you.  And, use nice handwriting and a good quality pen to write your note, and remember to sign your name!  You don’t have to write a lot but be genuine in your sentiments.

There are a variety of thank you card styles perfect for a wedding thank you note, a bridal shower thank you notes, graduation thank you cards, sympathy thank you cards and everyday general notes of thanks. A nice box of basic thank you cards is always something handy to have on hand.

You will certainly make someone’s day when they receive an attractive note card on their mailbox or on their desk.  Sending a thank you card is a sweet gesture at any time! A spontaneous or unexpected thank you note can often mean a lot.  After all, who doesn’t like being appreciated?

Best wishes,

Behind the Scenes: Experienced Production Team Works Hard

8 Jun

Today we thought it would be fun to peek into just one day at one of our factories to see what some of our many fabulous production professionals do to support the many thousands of stationery and note pad orders that go through their plant each month.  With decades of experience, their individual care to each order produced is notable.

Our experienced specialists carefully review every order from start to finish.

Every day our typesetting specialists look forward to entering Stationery Studio orders. Geraldine, who has been with our company for 32 years, enters each order into our system and previews it to ensure the typesetting is exactly what our customers are looking for. Items are checked for spelling, ink color and layout to be sure that the quality of the product will be excellent before it enters production. Geraldine’s passion for each customer order shines thru daily as she processes these orders and prepares them for the production team. Her goal is to have all overnight orders released to production before noon so they can be printed and ready to ship on a timely basis to customers.

Then one sheet will be printed to  check placement on the paper and to verify that the overall look of the product is what the customer is looking for, a high quality personalized stationery item. Upon her approval she will release the order to be produced. The product is then moved to the next step of the process which could be cutting the paper down to a specific finished size  or adhering glue to the end to creating notepads.

Once the order is assembled and ready, Kathy, with 30 years of experience will take the stationery or other items and carefully wrap in tissue and place it into a gift box or packaging appropriate to the product preparing it for final shipment.

The entire process is completed when our orders are shipped and have been picked up by shipping services. There is such passion to ensure that we are sending our customers the best product with the greatest value.  We are proud of the job we do each and every day.

Best wishes,
