Whilst I was at Skandium on Thursday for their AW11 press show, I stopped by the greeting card rack. I’ve learnt with age that my statistics for sending out cards for any event are far better if I just buy a card or two every time I pass them in a nice shop rather than trying to remember on the run up to each specific occasion. It doesn’t matter to me how far in advance it is, it’s just best if I have it. There was a collection of cards that really caught my eye and with a couple of weddings coming up in the next couple of weeks, they were perfect.
They are made by a company called Archivist Gallery which have 4 different ranges; Letterpress, Natural History Museum, Wild Cards and Archivist Cards. Drawing on the traditional skills of print craftsmen, the designs are funny, wise and contemporary in super colours. They’re lovely cards that are witty and beautifully executed. Not a trite sentiment in sight. Just how I like them.
