Some say the clothes make the man. We like to say stationery makes the man. And woman, of course. There are many types of stationery you can include in your stationery wardrobe, but below are the three pieces we consider the essentials.
The correspondence card is a flat card that can be used for everything from notes of thanks to follow-ups after networking. We recommend an ecru or white paper color with one’s full name or monogram printed at the top. Contact information such as email address and/or phone number can also be included.
Your font and ink color should reflect your personal style, however keep in mind that these design elements should be versatile enough for personal and professional correspondence alike.
The calling card is similar in size to a business card and most often used in both social and networking situations to pass along your contact information. Calling cards can, in addition to white and ecru, be printed on colored stock. Navy and grey are both nice choices.
Quality paper sheets, both personalized and blank, are always good to have on hand, as they can be used for everything from resumes to letters.
