Metallic Folios

Normally a folder won’t inspire anyone to get organized, but a gold or silver folio, well, that’s a different story. Shiny, special materials such as silver and gold catch our eyes and stand out in a stack of papers, thus providing you with a reason to add to your office supply collection. Plus, when considering the need to get organized, we need all the motivation we can get. Choose between silver or gold; there’s also matching metallic notebooks.

‘You’re amazing’ Card

If you don’t have someone that deserves this card, then you need to make some new friends. In fact, I’ll be your friend if you send me this card, and then I’ll tell all my amazing friends about you, then you’ll be broke because you’ll have to send out so many cards to tell them that they’re amazing. Won’t that be fun? Many more excellent cards to be found at the website of Sydney designers The Adventures of.

The Pattern Box: 100 Postcards

If you like patterns and postcards, you’d best snap up this box set now. Curated by New York City’s Textile Arts Center, this collection has one hundred designs from ten international designers. I’d be tempted just to keep it as a pattern resource for inspiration purposes, but then it’d be a shame not to share such interesting postcards with friends and family (and postal workers, of course).

4-piece nano note set

As someone who prefers to keep my weekly schedule in order via paper and pen, I shall never relinquish the smaller sticky note, as they provide a jolt of color to remind me of important dates and tasks. Now, I have another option to add to my visual arsenal: teensy tiny sticky notes. With small handwriting, you could probably jot down an important word or phrase, but considering their color, shape, and size it looks like they’d be perfectly appropriate for highlighting a particular date or line of text all on their own.

Telegram Thank You Cards

There’s a vague sense of responsibility I feel every time I come across decent Thank You cards, almost like I’m a schoolmarm rapping knuckles of anyone not writing their letters correctly. After all, handwriting has slowly become old-fashioned, as we all have turned towards typing out emails instead of picking up a pen. Perhaps that’s precisely why Thank You cards are very special to give and receive nowadays; each is a rare physical act of appreciation with the heartfelt scrawlings of someone that took the time to actually put pen to paper to express their thanks.

Tiny Letterpress Cards

You never know when you might need a small card to say the word(s) you’d rather not say in person, or (even worse) in an email. Cards are an endearing traditional aspect of communication, and make an occasion out of a few simple words. Any of these three cards will no doubt leave the recipient in a much better mood than before they picked up the envelope.
