My friend LJ (soon to be LL, as it were!) has the best stationery. We’ve been friends since we were 15 and even then she had a knack for finding the most clever, chic, and classy cards, notes, and other bits of stationery. She lives and breathes by the next paper shop or stationery store and each time I receive a note in the mail from her I feel like I am opening a little treasure.
When I stumbled upon Paperlicious, I immediately thought of LJ — it is an online haven for lovers of all things paper. I had the good fortune to be able to try out the Momager Calling Cards — which are sort of like business cards for moms. How many times have you been somewhere with your child(ren) and met another mom who had so much in common with you that you decided to meet up. Oh but then there is the business of writing down names (and the names of their children) home numbers, cell numbers, or email addresses. These card’s make it so easy! I chose the zebra patterned cards that have my name at the top, with “Little AG’s mom” written below it. I also included my cell phone number, my website address, and my email address.
I have already used them at Gymboree and the grocery store, and they have been fantastically helpful. Be warned, pulling these babies out will bring on cries of “where are those from” and “those are so cool”, and rightfully so. They are the mommy’s answer to efficient social networking.
There were so many great designs that I had a hard time choosing my favorite. I also like the Blue Brown Dots Design and the Pink Brown Swirls. Of course, I chose the zebra pattern because it’s a bit like my personality — all-business with a bit of a wild streak! You can get a pack of 50 Momager Calling Cards on the Paperlicious website for a mere $22.
My other favorite item from Paperlicious is their Social Stationery. I chose some for my family that has our family name at the top, with all three of our first names printed at the bottom. It is really sweet and I have used it to send little notes to friends and family on more than one occasion — most recently to send a note to my grandmother along with a little gift that I purchased for her in France. I chose the Blue Brown Dots Stationery — it comes with 30 flat cards, printed in the pattern and with the names of your choosing, as well as 30 white envelopes. You can purchase this set of 30 for $19.99 on the Paperlicious website.
All of the products are truly adorable — I’m also especially fond of the photo birth announcements and the “Admit One” Baby Shower Invitations. What is your favorite? Head on over to Paperlicious and let me know!
