Selecting our favorite pieces from Crane & Co.’s personalized stationery collection is like a parent selecting the favorite child. They’re all so creative… charming… genius in their own way.
But also like proud parents, we simply can’t resist the opportunity to gratuitously gush. We’re lucky paper can’t blush.
Why can’t all paper have swirly edges? The ones on these delicate note cards make us want to take scissors to everything square shaped. Though our handiwork wouldn’t look nearly as striking, so we’ll just leave it to the professionals and dote from afar.
How could you not smile when you see this hibiscus-hued note card with matching envelope in your mailbox? We imagine it would go something like this: Bill… junk mail… bill… wrong address… oooh, what’s this?
Okay, we confess we’re a bit obsessed at the moment with everything hibiscus-colored, but we’re also obsessed with Crane & Co.’s new hand-engraved monograms, like the one on this calling card. (Don’t you love calling cards? They make us want to attend an elegant soiree just to pass them out.) The detail is simply stunning, we like to think it was made with expert precision and care just for us. Come to think of it, it was.
