And the Winner Is…

debbie wish you were here pinterest boardCongratulations to the winner of our Wish You Were Here Pinterest contest: Debbie!

Contestants were asked to create a Pinterest board inspired by their perfect vacation spot and incorporate one of our notes or cards. We received so many delightful entries that made us want to pack our bags this minute, so thank you to everyone who participated!

For her board, Debbie created a most delectable beach getaway, complete with dreamy images of mojitos, surfing and seaside strolls. She used our Hand Engraved Starfish Correspondence CardAviator Glasses Correspondence Card and Shell Note, which all fit perfectly with her beachy theme.

A couple others we loved:

Gena’s tribute to Prague using our Hand Engraved Peacock Feather Note (apparently one can see them wandering about the city) as inspiration. Street lamps in the fog, lush gardens and river strolls make the City of 100 Spires a perfect summer destination.

Elizabeth used our Turtle Note for her board entry, which pays homage to everyone’s favorite shelled, lumbering reptile. Who wouldn’t love to see one — or ten — on their next coastal vacation?

Again, thank you to everyone who entered, and bon voyage!

Less Work, More Play: Labor Day Stationery Favorites

As a 211-year-old American company, one of our favorite holidays of the year is certainly Labor Day. Created to celebrate all of the hard work our labor force has done for this country, Labor Day is rightfully a time to kick back, relax and, well, not labor at all.

So in honor of backyard barbeques, the coldest of beverages and a game of horseshoes or two, here are our favorite stationery picks that remind us of less work and more play.

Get in a morning match or two with friends before temperatures begin to soar. Winner gets the first mimosa…
