P.S. Pearl Stationery

Notes from the Artist:

These P.S. Signature correspondence card greetings were designed with my shop logo in mind. I wanted to create a versatile set with somewhat informal, sweet and simple sentiments that could be used either for celebrations like birthdays or anniversaries, or as everyday reminders to your loved ones of how special they are to you.

My work is inspired by everything from a fabulous dress to a beautiful flower to an eye-catching ad. Of course, as an avid paper crafter, completing a stationery design is satisfying in itself. But, it's not nearly as rewarding as knowing, thanks to my Etsy shop, that my handmade cards will be used by someone to say "happy birthday," "thanks," "congrats," or just "hello" to a special recipient.


What's the reason you tend to usually send a card or note in the mail? Birthday, anniversary, congratulations, thank-you, just to say hello, for a holiday, or any other occasion? Leave a comment letting me know, and you could win a FREE set of the P.S. Signature Correspondence cards (a $12 value!), pictured above. One name will be randomly selected from the comments received today! Good luck :)

Be sure to include your etsy shop address or an email where we can contact you if you win! One winner will be randomly selected from all comments posted before 6 a.m. EST tomorrow. The winning number will be posted in the comments and contacted by the artist.

We send cards for birthdays, anniversaries, to our penpals, family and frinds.. on Christmas, sometimes in Easter too..Get well soon cards and sometimes cards to make our friends smile, when they're having a problem .. A lot of people send e-mails but we still love the cards, the idea of having something in the mailbox wainting for you in the end of the day... We always have two or three cards at home.. we always need one =P

This giveaway is great! I mail cards for everything because I love real mail so much. Birthdays and anniversaries are a must for each friend and family member each year. Thank you notes for every gift, dinner or kind thing anyone has done for us. We send cards for holidays like Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's Day. Congratulations for a pregnant friend and new baby card when he/she is born. Wedding cards (there were a lot of those this year), engagement cards, get well soon cards, sympathy cards, thinking of you cards, graduation cards, new home cards, father's day, mother's day... I think that's it but I have a feeling it's not. Eek! I mail a lot of cards! Anyway, I'd love to win so thanks for the opportunity!

These cards are so adorable!
I love making cards and sending them to friends for all kinds of reasons, but mostly just to say hello and i'm thinking of them. I think the best kind of mail is mail for no reason but to say hello!

I most reliabily send out cards at Christmas. Aside from that it's the ocassionaly birthday card or a no-occassion-just-want-to-send-someone-happy-mail card.

Your set of cards is lovely!

I love this set of cards! I especially like how you incorporated the logo (P.S...very creative!) into the cards. I love cards and send for all occasions, or just to say hello. Sometimes will send a note to cheer someone up or wish them good luck for an important event. I always keep in touch with family and friends at Christmastime. I also enjoy Valentine's Day cards, I think it brings out the child in me!

I love this design! I usually send notes for thank you's for gifts or for birthdays - but you can never have too many note cards because something always comes up!


Megan said...

I just love these! They are so cute and so perfect to leave for that special someone. Or to just write a quick little not to let someone know you are thinking of them! These are perfect! :)

I send cards for just about every occasion; whether it be the standard birthdays/holidays, or just because! I think it's a good way to make things personal in an age that's so technologically driven!
