I have a confession to make.
I have a thing for beautiful stationery. Hand engraved. Sumptuous paper. Monogrammed.
And for years, I indulged my habit with Mrs. John L. Strong. When they closed their doors (and took my engraving plates with them), I was lost. Until I found…the Printery, in Oyster Bay, NY.
The images above are from inside the century-old stationer. They make stationary the old fashioned way.
The envelopes are lined by hand.
Samples of their gift enclosure cards
I ♥ this card, used for birth announcements. I’d use it for Valentines.
Hand tied bows on wedding programs
Elegant desk calendar
And, here it is.
Hand engraved. Sumptuous paper. With my monogram – and coordinating envelope liner. Expensive? Yes. Worth every penny? I think so. And, I’m not the only one…read what others had to say.
Want to try out their products without the long term commitment?
Well, 2 of you are in luck. The Printery has given me 2 sets of “beach” themed notepads to pass along to you. Join me as a “follower, if you haven’t already — leave a comment by Friday at midnight and I’ll announce the winners on Monday!
So many messages today come with the tagline “Sent by my iphone“. Don’t you appreciate the art of the handwritten note?
