girlfriends, i need your help

January 15, 2013 54 Comments

 

Hello friends. Let's gossip over coffee. We can talk about our feelings and dreams and about how justified we were for throwing that fit/buying that bag/judging that engagement ring. I'll convince you to quit your job and you can convince me to go on a juice cleanse with you.

Ok, well we won't really be together. And there may not be coffee. I will be here, inside my computer and you will be there, inside your computer.

But I do want to have a conversation with you. Because I trust your judgement and love your taste!

I'm working on working smarter this year. And I need your help to do it.

The paper industry is changing rapidly and I need to adjust accordingly. I am going to produce a smaller line of card designs in 2013. Just the cards you need to get through a year full of special occasions and nothing that will lie in the bottom of your desk drawer.

I have a vision of a complete boxed set of my cards that will contain a mother's day card, a thank you note, a birthday card etc... all the essentials to help the modern woman never come up empty handed on those rare few remaining occasions when we still reach for pen and paper.

I want to only produce the cards you all really really want to see. So tell me what you want to see! So far I have ideas for valentines day, birthday, mother's day, thank you, bride, pregnancy.

What do you think? Are there other occasions you wished you had a card for? Or less occasions? Do you like seeing my girls on the cards? Or patterns/objects? Do you like text with the artwork?

Comment and help me plan!  You are the wind beneath my wings!

ps. buy a print

I would love to see congrats on your new job-type cards – and of course, the perfect thank you card to have on hand at all times!

agree on the “just because” cards – those are always my go-to when it comes to picking up cards. Additionally, engagement cards or generic Congratulations cards are always nice to have on hand! hugs to you inslee!

I love seeing your girls on the cards— please don’t do away with them! Also, I’d love to see a card for a “Good luck” for a female graduate or young career woman. xo.
P.S. I adore my blonde + brunette print and 2013 calendar!

On a really busy day it is a tad stressful to remember to go out and buy a card, this is a wonderful idea! I have just one request, could you please include an anniversary card? The ones I usually find are too wordy and sometimes less personal. Your girls are always my favorite and inspirational so please include the girls, and maybe pattern/ojects for a chance of variety?

Would be helpful to have an option with 2 Mother’s Day and 2 Father’s Day cards for married people or those with stepparents.

Every girl needs a set of flat cards that can be used for any occasion. Also, I would love to see a girl in the city postcard line from different cities around the world.

I always like the simple “hello” or “thinking about you” cards. The kind that you can just send for no real reason.

I love this image of the 2 cups – especially the lipstick smear! It would make such a cute friendship card. I still have a few of the girl blowing out birthday candles on a massive cake – I love to have a birthday card on hand.

I was going to suggest an “I miss you” card as well. I think I would include several “thank you cards” as well as several birthday cards. I love sending Halloween cards too!

I love sending snail mail, so make sure to have a cute and simple hello type of card. Also, I love sending my sweetie a love letter so make something sweet you could send a man. He loves getting cards in the mail for no reason!

What about a sweet “I Miss You” or “Thinking of You”? Those always make the distance between us feel just a little shorter :-)

Aside from the birthday cards, Mother’s Day cards, congrats cards (baby, engagement, etc.), I agree with “thinking of you” cards. With our busy schedules and moving around, we often times lose touch with our closest friends, and what’s better than sending a beautiful/fun and fashionable reminder that you’re thinking of them. Also, more thank you card options, as well as “girl’s night/party/get together” cards. I also agree with the congrats cards for lady grads. Excellent.
