It's no secret — we here at DNE have a serious soft-spot for a handwritten note. Maybe it's because we're writers, or because we appreciate anything that's beautifully packaged, but with a plethora of cards on the market that are works of art in their own right, who can resist an excuse to sit down and pen a note. We featured a select few in our July/August issue, but couldn't resist sharing more (like the adorably clever one above by Lady Pilot).
Spoon & Sailor: "I Miss Your Face" (above) and "An Owl Flavored Greeting" (below)
Ward Maps (1735 Mass. Ave., Cambridge): "Provincetown 1910" (above) and "Cape Elizabeth 1885" (below)
Paperless Post (with sharp designs, they make for a fantastic e-option): "Balloons — Mustard" (above, left), "Mommy's 15 Minutes" (above, right), and "Ties" (below)
