TODAY I LIKE ··· GORGEOUS CARDS

Hoy quería hacer un post revival. Porque hoy en día estamos más conectados que nunca... pero al mismo tiempo nunca habíamos estado tan aislados. Tenemos a mano whatsapp, facebook, twitter, mensajes de texto y voz... ¡ y ya nunca escribimos cartas a mano ! No hace falta esperar a que llegue Navidad, San Valentín o el cumpleaños de alguien que nos importa: hay muchos motivos por los que merece la pena decir algo bonito. Y si el mensaje es importante, también podemos hacerlo de la forma más bonita posible - seguro que suma :) Demos las gracias, brindemos nuestro apoyo, digámosle a alguien lo maravilloso que es, lo mucho que lo queremos o lo buena que estaba la comida. Porque a veces las cosas pequeñas son las más importantes.

PS las primeras 4 tarjetas son de la maravillosa tienda Sugar Paper, las 4 siguientes de Brown Paper Designs y las 4 últimas están hechas a mano por Tabletop Made





Today I felt like writing a revival post :) Thanks to Whatsapp, text messages, voice mail, facebook, twitter... we are more connected with each other than we’ve ever been... but at the same time I feel we’ve never been so isolated. We don’t write long letters anymore. We don’t leave written messages to our friends (remember when we exchanged letters at school??!). We don’t have to wait for Christmas, St Valentine’s Day or our friends’ birthdays in order to get in touch with people we love. Every day, every minute, there are lots of moments we could use to say something nice to someone we care for. And if we want to deliver a loving message, we might as well do it in a cute way ;-) Let’s say “thank you”, let’s give our support, let’s tell our Mum how wonderful she is, let’s comment on how delicious food tasted. Sometimes small things are the most important.

PS the first 4 gorgeous cards are from the amazing Sugar Paper. The next 4 are from Brown Paper Designs and the last 4 are hand made from Tabletop Made.

  3. I LOVED this post! I make my own handmade cards, and so I have always been on the "snail mail" bandwagon. It's such a lost art - letter writing. Isn't it? So sad. Nothing makes my day more than finding something hand written in the mailbox! Thanks for writing this and helping to start a letter revival!

  5. All of these picks are great. And thanks for the heads up on these wonderful sites. Being a graphic designer I am always on the lookout for great letterpress/stationary companies.

    Todas estas selecciones son geniales. Y gracias por el aviso en estos sitios maravillosos. Ser un diseñador gráfico siempre estoy en la búsqueda de tipografía grande / empresas estacionarias.
