Well, maybe not Avon. But we would be willing to do almost anything (even sell Avon door-to-door) to use our calling cards. Fortunately for us, though, it’s easy to find ways to use them. They can be used as:
business cards, adding color and personality to the traditionally plain card (a great gift for college grads heading out to the job market)
social networking cards, for moments when life prevents long conversations or even the jotting down of contact information
gift tags, but much prettier and more personal than the stickers you can buy at superstores
brief “thank you” notes, especially for those with neat and tidy handwriting
unique inserts for luggage tags, making your bags that much easier to identify
allergen cards, to clearly communicate dietary needs with restaurant staff, friends or even family
parent cards, to leave contact information with sitters, daycare teachers and schools or exchange numbers with other parents for playdates
P.S. cards, holding that extra information that just didn’t fit on the main card or invitation
The list goes on and on, really. Their small size makes them easy to tote and store, but they’re big enough to carry your messages. From sassy to professional, classic to contemporary, we have patterns to suit every personality and need. We also offer envelopes for them, so your message and information can be hidden from unintended readers. Calling cards have been making a comeback, a trend recently noted by both Real Simple (May 2009 issue, page 64) and Time Magazine (July 2008). Speaking of Real Simple, our Tahiti Pink Calling Card made it into their calling card spread, thanks to one of our retailers.
How can you resist exchanging information on such colorful cards? Or brightening someone’s day with a cheery, brief note? Or sending a gift with a tag as unique and special as the recipient? We certainly can’t… we love them too much! Check out our calling cards today!

We love feedback, good or bad. But we really love great feedback! It was so sweet of one of our retailers, Courtney Peterson from Paper Savvy, to write us this morning: “I just wanted to let you all know that the Whitney English Candles were a huge hit at the Sip and Shop!! I could…
I stumbled upon this gorgeous tray from Decorative Things the other day. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a house with too many serving trays. If I had my way, there would be a tray on every table and for every purpose! They are great for organizing things. But we’re also big…
Please excuse the delay in updates… we’ve been settling back in after the National Stationery Show, and updating fell from the top of our list. THE CLASSIC COLLECTION Allow us to introduce the Classic Collection: The definition of classic varies, depending on whom you ask and what is being discussed. Generally speaking, the terms…

It’s spring again, and that means things are changing. We are cleaning up the warehouse, rearranging the office and getting everything ready for a fresh start.
