Small Bird Card Set by Fanny Shorter

While you could use these cards for correspondence, you might also consider framing a few for a special spot somewhere in your home. Each illustration is a small bird drawn to scale 1:1 by artist Fanny Shorter and the set includes some of the tiniest birds in the world. Which one is the smallest? Apparently the Bee Hummingbird at 5.5 cm long- that’s 2.1653543 inches. Tiny!

Vote Cards

See those tiny red letters and what they spell out? Early voting begins in several states this week, and now’s the time to motivate yourself and others to participate in this year’s elections. Maybe you could hand them out around the office, or post one in a conspicuous place on the bulletin board at your local dry cleaners or favorite lunch place. Sometimes it only takes the tiniest push to get someone to the polls (and other times it takes a bull horn).

Fill-in-the-Blanks Bookplates

Bookplates! Maybe not that exciting if you’ve fully abandoned paper pages, but if you still harbor a love for the old fashioned tome, you might just like to have a few blank bookplates on hand. Keep track of the place/date you bought the book, inscribe a special sentiment before giving as a gift, or, as I might do, write in your name so the book will eventually find its way back to you if it’s ever borrowed.

Geometric Birthday Card

Just think, some people pick up cards at the supermarket. Pfft. Not you, of course. You have more of discerning nature and require a card that shows your stylish restraint and superb taste, maybe a card along the lines of these geometric beauties. Choose the Oval or Cube shape in black or metallic gold; the recipient will find a debossed black or gold “Happy Birthday” inside.

Monthly Sticky Note

For us visual planners, a small overview of the month is pretty necessary, and these sticky notes seem like they would accompany our weekly planner or notebook quite well. Each pad has 15 sheets showing an empty grid; quickly jot down the current month’s dates and you’ll have your calendar wherever you want it. (The price is almost negligible, so maybe you can add some other fun sticky notes to your order; perhaps full moon, small maple leaf, or tetris?)

Make Tea Not War Postcard

A sentiment well worth remembering in times of stress, this postcard will be sure to get your message across… and then perhaps end up pinned to a bulletin board (or even put in a frame?). That’s what I would do with it.

Little Thank You Notes

This is such a nice way to express your appreciation. This set of 25 individual thank you notes are small enough to carry around and leave about wherever you want. Maybe your server or salesperson was prompt and courteous, or maybe your coworker did something that made your day easier; it’d be easy to leave a note and let them know you noticed. It’s not specified what all the cards say, but two photos show two cards with ‘Thank you for your lovely hospitality’ and ‘Thank you for the superb service.’

Full Moon Sticky Note

It’s a sticky note in the shape of a full moon! For those of us that enjoy most things lunar, it’s an add-to-cart no brainer. As you can see from the photos, the moon is printed on tracing paper, which allows for some transparency. Each pad is 20 sheets of Full Moon Sticky Notes.

Triangle Notebook

Update: Remember this guy? MoMA has it in stock again, with a slight modification to its branding (now it says ‘MoMA Triangle Notebook’).

I’m not quite sure how a triangular shape notebook would benefit those of us that like notebooks, other than for novelty’s sake, but maybe that’s reason enough. (For example, I thought I’d skip posting this, but I kept coming back to it.) This notebook belongs to MoMA’s Destination: Istanbul, which means it’s available for a limited time only.

Features 144 ruled pages and a durable black fabric cover.
Made in Turkey
Size: 9l x 9w x .5″h.

From our archives; originally posted May 18, 2011.
