Something New

Every now and then it’s nice to stray from the norm. Try something different. Whether that something different is a new food, a new clothing style, maybe even a book. Trying something new gets us outside our comfort zone, which in turn helps us grow. It maybe even allows us to take on a different personality of sorts.  

For instance, you may be someone who always has their name on their stationery. Their name is fully spelled out in all its glory. It’s your name you should be proud of it, but every once in a while it’s fun to go with a monogram.

If you are typically a script name kind of lady, then changing it up with a bold block monogram on some funky designed note cards, is a great way to change it up.

Personally, I typically prefer a traditional design that is something classic and clean. If you are the same then you should take item 2656 for a spin. If you are typically a name toting traditionalist this ultra- modern chevron design shines in trendy yellow and gray. But, don’t let the hip factor fool you; it still says I’m a classic. For $66.00 you receive 25 notes with plain envelopes. With the bold block font it’s wonderful putting your monogram on these folded notes. For just $38.00 more you can line the inner envelopes a perfect way to complete your new look.

Maybe you are young and just starting to create your stationery personality. Once you enter the workforce, you’d be surprised how often you need to send a quick note. You may need to write a thank you note to a friend for setting up an interview or a follow up note to the interviewer. The list goes on and on and trust me people notice not only the time and effort put into the note, but the style of the note itself. It says more about you than you may realize.
