STATIONERY TELLS A STORY.
Before your recipient even reads what you've written, your stationery tells him or her about you and your personal style. Are you represented by the perfect shade of pale pink, or are you more of a strong, charcoal gray?
In a world of emails and texts, we believe stationery is a necessity. Receiving a note in the mail is a special occasion. It can give you a leg up in business, or show someone you love how much you care.
“LETTERS ARE LIKE WINE; IF THEY ARE SOUND THEY RIPEN WITH KEEPING.
A MAN SHOULD LAY DOWN LETTERS AS HE DOES A CELLAR OF WINE.”
THERE IS AN EXTENSIVE ETIQUETTE GOVERNING STATIONERY CHOICES, FROM THE TYPE OF CARD TO THE COLOR OF THE INK.
And while you might send a nice bright colored note to a friend, it could be a little shocking to a potential employer. Did you know:
- Men only write on flat cards or sheets. A folded note is considered inherently feminine.
- “Informals” are actually the most formal of stationery. They are a small folded note, always white or ecru, with a woman’s formal social name engraved in black ink. You use them to respond to a formal invitation, send a message, or as a gift enclosure.
