Today’s letter, from Clifton Park, N.Y., begs the question, are you ready for some football (stationery)?It reads: Sarah, I adore this simple but elegant note card — ridiculously thick but beautiful enough that one flat piece is a gorgeous foundation for a note. More important, it shows off engraving wonderfully. Engraving — a rare thing, an almost old-world craft that makes my heart flutter. This was a gift, making it all the more special. From a lovely store that continues to provide beautiful papers to those of us who love it! (I also happen to love the Green Bay Packers.) Thanks for all you do to sing praises to paper, Kate
Thank you so much for writing in, Kate, and what incredibly posh stationery! It is indeed SO thick, and that football sure leaves a beautiful bruise on its back! Also, this is my husband’s favorite letter I’ve received to date. Though he is a diehard Browns fan, we actually own one share of the Green Bay Packers, so we are with you in spirit!
While I don’t have any football stationery, I luckily have one box of engraved stationery, from Crane & Co. no less. These hand-engraved Florentine Brocade Notes are of course on 100% cotton paper, paired with lined gold lustre envelopes. They are so fabulous — to me, as soon as you see the elegant navy blue Crane’s box, you know there’s something special inside — and I hope Kate enjoys using them. Thank you Crane’s for so generously donating these to TPC’s letter-writing campaign!So, would you like some free, fabulous stationery too? Just drop me a quick note on your favorite paper (which is most likely gathering dust) and tell me what makes it so. My address is: P.O. Box 22133, Beachwood, Ohio 44122. And if you are interested in being sponsor, I’d love to hear from you too!
