Our cards use luxuriant metallic papers for the liners and envelopes. The effect is stunning. However, you’ll need to be a bit careful about pens on some of our cards, especially the darker colours. “Regular” pens and even typical coloured markers may not be highly visible. For these cards, we highly recommend metallic pens.
The types of pens available in different locations can vary, so it’s a bit difficult to recommend specific pens (that will be available near you), but here’s some pens that we have found to work quite well.
“Thanks so much!” is written with a Metallic Sharpie
“See you soon!” is written with a Y&C Gel Xtreme
“Thinking of you…” is written with a Superfine Posca Glitter
“Congratulations!” is written with a Pilot Juice
“Best of luck!” is written with a Sakura Gelly Roll
“You’re the best!” is written with a Kuretake Metallic Brush
“Keep your chin up!” is written with a Signo Bold
I guess I missed it when it came out last October, but this NYT article I found yesterday is on point!
It’s definitely worth reading in its entirety, but some of the highlights are included in these images.
There were a couple of LOWLIGHTS, too:
* Not counting holiday cards and invitations, the average American household receives just 10 pieces of personal mail per year.
* Nearly half of British children, according to one survey, have never sent a handwritten letter.
Let CutItOut! Cards help you Send Something that Matters!
When was the last time you got something in the mail? Bills and ads don’t count!
When did you last get a personal note from a loved one or associate? I’ll bet it was a while ago, and that’s the point! Snail mail (that you want) has become so rare that it now really makes an impression. Email or SMS is fine for the everyday, but if you want to get someone’s attention, or express something significant, CutItOut Cards! are a great choice!
