It is often the little things in life that make us happy, such as finding a beautiful note card or the perfect piece of stationary for writing to a friend or loved one. I have a thing for stationary and I am in love with the cards, stationary, and other paper products from Rifle Paper Company. They are witty and whimsical and their colorful, nostalgic, and cheerful designs make me smile. These cards will make you want to write handwritten notes to everyone you know. They are made of thick and beautiful stock and are so charming that they could single-handedly bring back the custom of handwritten notes. Give me a stack of good stationary or cards, and I will gladly write handwritten notes rather than emails. There is something so generous and thoughtful about staying connected to others in this way.
