Stationery is one of my favorite things. I could spend hours getting lost in a stationery store – exploring all of the different designs, textures and such. With technology though, I now find some of my favorite stationery sources online. Although it takes a bit more time for my desired products to reach me, their unique nature makes ordering online worth the wait. As Mother’s Day is approaching next month, I want to share two of my favorite online card companies of the moment… Posh Peacock and Tiny Prints.
True Confession: I don’t especially enjoy receiving birth announcements. I just don’t know what to do with them after I look at them. It seems wasteful to throw them in the trash bin. However, when my friend Christine (whom I usually mention in association with her Boston Mamas site) sent me the birth announcement for Violet, the newest addition to the Koh family, I liked it so much that I framed it!
Not only does Christine produce super cute baby girls, but she is also a very talented designer. The purple flowers and color scheme fit perfectly with her daughter Violet’s name. I also like the way that she had a photo of the baby, the siblings and the entire family. Perfection. Definitely visit her Posh Peacock site where the focus is “chic and modern graphic design”.
I have mentioned Tiny Prints many times in the past. They simply produce consistently superior stationery products. My business cards that I received from them are constantly noted. I have also bought holiday cards from this company in the past. Recently, I attended an editor’s Mother’s Day event that they were hosting in the city at Friend of a Farmer. While there, I was able to see a variety of their spring offerings and to make a customized Mother’s Day Card for my mom. Below is the inside of the card. I think that she will love it. Don’t you?
This year, Tiny Prints also has a series of Mother’s Day Cards designed by celebrities. The image at the top of my post, Georgina, is especially chic. It is designed by Baby Buggy for Tiny Prints.
In any event, you can’t go wrong by choosing either Posh Peacock or Tiny Prints for your Mother’s Day cards, birth announcements or any other stationery needs. The only thing better would be if there was a collaboration between the two. I could see a “Christine Koh for Tiny Prints” section. In fact, I would be first in line to place my order. (As usual, I’m just thinking aloud…)
