Personalize Your Note Cards

I have been hand stamping invitations for a while now and recently decided to hand stamp my letterpressed note cards. I was nervous that it would dilute the quality of the letterpress - but I have found the opposite to be true. It adds another layer - in a really good way I think. And when it is physically layered on top of the letterpressed image, as in the Summer Dress card below for Eloise, I find the chocolate ink to be like a beautiful linen screen.

While I have been personalizing stationery on a You Ask, I'll Do It Basis, you'll soon be able to personalize your note cards online through our website. Here are some samples I have done in the past:


And here's one I just did for my niece's birthday:


And this one of our Oversized Flats (8.5" x 5.5") - all elements are large & in charge on this one! Perfect for big handwriting like mine:


Having the names rubber stamped gives me the flexibility to place the name wherever I want, in any color, and on different designs. AND, the person gets to keep their stamp. I love the way it looks and can't wait to do more of them.

Email me directly at liz@lindaandharriett.com if you want your very own.

And let me know what you think of the rubber stamp/letterpress combo. I'd love to hear what you think.

I just stumbled onto your blog and website from the link on daily candy (which I stumbled onto from another stationery link) and I must say...I'm in love! I have a total paper fetish that appears to be getting out of control! I have absolutely no need for any new paper products but will be emailing you via "linda & harriett" very soon to place an order.

BTW - I absolutely LOVE the way the stamp looks on the letter pressed notecards! I wish I had your talent!!

Thanks Cyndi! I appreciate it. I have received pretty good feedback on the personalized note cards, too - so I think they'll be around for a while.

We have some new designs coming in next week, so check back soon.
