Ah, the smell of freshly cut grass, mint julips and, well, that equine fragrance only a rider can love. The Kentucky Derby is this weekend, and we can’t wait to don our favorite hat, fresh from the milliner.
In celebration of all things equestrian, here are our few of our favorite Derby-inspired picks surely to land in your winner’s circle:
1) Leather iPad Sleeve in Dark Brown
The handsome leather of this iPad sleeve reminds us of a most prized saddle, only befitting of the fastest stallion. 4G on 4 legs, if you will.
We’re quite proud of the fact that our paper is 100% cotton, especially when Earth Day rolls around each year. So, while you should feel confident you’re doing a little something for the environment every time you purchase our stationery, we thought we’d select a handful of our favorite tree-friendly products just in time for one of our favorite holidays.
We can’t help but want to pack up our picnic basket on a sunny day and head to the nearest field when we see our ecru Dandelion Note featuring a delightful pop of yellow. With a sustainable bottle of wine and locally made Chevre, of course.
Good things come in threes. Especially when it’s a cap, a gown and a diploma.
Here are our three favorite new graduation announcements followed by our three favorite graduation cards.
All you need now is a victory dance.

Done. Finito. Signed, sealed, delivered. It’s time to celebrate. A photo of the new grad (all grown up!) digitally printed on one side, the date when partying shall commence playfully printed on the other (congrats!).
Here comes Peter Cottontail, and our once-a-year craving for pastel hues. Introducing our favorite stationery picks that inspire all things Easter.
A little shine goes a long way. At least that was Mom’s motto, which is why she’ll love this elegant turquoise card engraved with calligraphic swirls of gold.
Sometimes it is easy being green. In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, here are our favorite verdant-hued picks.
Whether it’s a toast to St. Patrick’s Day or to spring (or both), we’re in the mood for a party sans sweaters and stockings. Invite friends and family to peel off a few layers with these kate spade new york invitations featuring a pop of their signature kelly green.
Spring is in the air, and we here at Crane & Co. are anxiously awaiting blooming flowers, sundresses and a good old fashioned defrosting. In the meantime, we’ve asked some of our team members what’s getting them to swoon for the new season. Stationery-wise, of course.

“One of my best friends recently got engaged so I’m extremely excited about all things related to weddings. These beautiful save the dates are elegant and timeless while also fresh and fun.”
As we excitedly perused our new 2012 stationerycollection, we noticed a trend that the Cleopatras and Usain Bolts in all of us would appreciate. All that glitters is gold, they say, so here are some of our favorite designs that’ll have you positively glowing.
From the desk of Richie Tenenbaum, or so we like to think. Gold engraved racquets for letters home from summer camp & other heartfelt correspondence.
With the launch of our new 2012 Social Occasions collection comes a bevy of new trends. Don’t worry, you’ll still find the classic elegance and craftsmanship Crane & Co. is known for, but with it, fresh design that might just inspire you to celebrate. We’ll be there with bells on.
It’s quite a testament to your social occasion that you’re announcing it via richly thick 100% cotton paper. But it’s those small details that really make your stationery sing, which is why we love hand-bordered edging. And yes, it’s really hand-bordered, as in one of the lovely ladies in our stationery factory painting each edge with exquisite care.
Sometimes being in the red is a good thing. Here are our Valentine’s Day gift ideas that are sure to get you a kiss.
