Paper Culture Review

As many of you already know, I have a major stationery addiction. I can't get enough, I just love the stuff and I am very picky about it. I have been known to stop at multiple card shops just to find the perfect one for the occassion and if I see one just right for someone I will buy it then and there. It doesn't matter if your birthday is in three days or three months.Recently I heard about a the modern stationery from Paper Culture and I could barely contain myself until I got my samples.

What I love:
  • Bold graphic designs, that are so popular right now and a wide variety of them.
  • They're green and eco friendly! Papers and envelopes are FSC certified as 100% post consumer recycled paper
  • Being green doesn't mean low on style, their cards are printed premium quality stock paper; you can feel the difference. It's thick heavy stuff & I love the rounded edges.
  • Embossed logo on their envelopes give them a boutique feel.
  • Matte finish
  • They're civic minded; a portion of all Paper Culture proceeds go towards supporting their local community.
One of the best perks of using Paper Culture? They even have a mail and message program, you can chose to have Paper Culture stuff, address, stamp and mail the cards for you! Try it out during the busy upcoming holiday season, because until January 1, 2010, the only charge for this service is the cost of the stamps! What a time saver; if you use it, maybe your cards will make it out on time this year! I have to admit, as much as I liked a bunch of Paper Culture's designs online, I didn't really care for any of the designs they actually sent me. But that's a matter of personal taste; I could tell from the samples I received that I do like their overall quality. I especially liked browsing through the kids' birthday party invitations. My personal favorite were the Balloon Zoo, Modern Classic Flowers, and the Penguin's 1st Birthday Party shown below:
I also really liked the Moving Truck announcements, but my favorite section to look at had to be the modern baby announcements. Isn't the Baby Stuff Galore design just too stinkin' cute? The Garden Tea Party was also just my style and I thought that one along with the Appleseed Bird Baby combined a modern take on design with whimsical. The Mood Clock Baby and the Food Cravings Mobile both just made me laugh. There are even plenty of choices for those with a more traditional taste, like the Classic Rocking Horse. I also really liked the Spirograph Flower and Teddy Bear designs. Guess I need one of my friends to have a baby!
