Hey everyone! I’m Ilana and I’m so excited to be a guest today! Cori’s enthusiasm is contagious isn’t it?!
A little bit about myself: I run a small design studio, Sugar and Type. I’m passionate about puppies, and paper, and take dessert very seriously. While most of my work is custom, such as branding, web design, or wedding invitations, I also have an Etsy shop where I sell greeting cards and a couple other goodies (like a kick ass planner that’s sure to keep you on your toes in 2014).
I always notice a spike in sales over the holidays, which makes sense, but why not send a card just because?! Most of my cards are just that, because you’re thinking of someone, or you saw a card that made you laugh. In a pile of bills, it always brightens someone’s day to have a little “hello.” Especially in a world that is so digital, where everyone knows your Facebook status, what you ate for breakfast, and what your kids did today.
Cori asked me to share some of my favorite cards that you can send “just because.”
Cherry on Top // What’s a better way to tell someone they add sweetness to your life? Comes with matching pink envelope. Who doesn’t love ice cream!?
Great Pear // Did your friends just do something awesome? Let them know they are better together with this card that comes with a matching envelope.
Shit Happens // It happens all the time, but you’ve got to keep your head up and keep going! Send one of these cards to brighten their day and help them remember that it’ll get better! Just getting your friend to laugh will make a world of difference.
Notecards // Notecards are flat, instead of folded. These are perfect for any occassion, and with limited space, it’s perfect to just say “hello,” or “thinking of you.”
So go ahead and send your holiday and new years cards, but don’t forget to some of those “just because” cards to keep for those times you just want to say hi. You can stop by my shop and make your own variety pack! Use the code “LETSEATGRANDPA” to get 20% off a $20 purchase, for the next week!!
