Today’s letter is actually a package, but before I get ahead of myself, we’ll start with the letter.
I’ve been following your Letter-Writing Campaign, which fills me with much delight as I have been a letter-writing paper-holic and pen pal since I was small (a loong time ago).
Here’s an odd little assortment for you: personalized stationery from the 80s, a foil-stamped card from the 90s, a vintage mini bridal shower card found in my mom’s drawer, and finally a current card from my stash that I loved as soon as I laid eyes on it by my teacher (RISD — printmaking for illustrators) and awesome artist Allison Cole.
I’m also sending a Sassy Sampler box from my own line, Survival by Design Cards, to add to someone else’s collection. Last, but not least, I love these little foldover cards from Galison from a couple of years ago.
Thanks for running this campaign! Yours in stationery love, Jennifer Adler
Wow, Jennifer, what a great assortment — and thank you for sending all these goodies! I think my grandfather had that exact “From the Desk of” stationery, by the way.This foil-stamped card, printed in Israel by the now apparently defunct Golden Designs, proves that everything old is indeed new again. This wee Thank You, from Gibson (since acquired by American Greetings), is adorable.
And screen-printed cards from Allison Cole are so fun and definitely worth a peek — shop them here!
And last but not least, we have this great sampler from Survival By Design. Jennifer describes herself as “just a nice, Jewish girl trying to make you laugh” — and she definitely succeeds with me! The box contains 3 each of these 4 fabulous designs to spread the sassy. It’s one of two that you can see here, and in addition to cards, SBD also offers calendars, coasters, giftwrap, lip balm, luggage tags, magnets, mouse pads, pocket mirrors, sticky notes and totes + pouches. Check it all out here.
What a great little amalgam of stationery — and except for the personalized notes, I’ll be sending it to a lucky Letter-Writing Correspondent (unless of course, someone named Jennifer H. Adler happens to write in).
So, do you want to receive some free, fabulous stationery? 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, don’t be shy — I’d love to hear from you too!
