Accessorize your gifts with cute engraved mason jars from Giftsin24.com

You’ve spent a lot of time and money to find the cutest top for your sister, or the most elegant item on your friend’s bridal registry, or the perfect man-cave item for your husband. Why not make the gift presentation the best it can be, too? One answer is to accessorize your gifts to make them feel extra special to the gift-ee and help them stand out above the rest.

Here are 3 easy ways to dress up your gifts with a personalized touch.

Accessorize your gifts with personalized gift enclosures from giftsin24.com

Tuck in a Personalized Gift Enclosure

A beautifully embossed or printed gift enclosure folded into its envelope and tucked into the gift bag is so easy to accomplish when you have a supply in your gift drawer at home. Try Henley Monogram Portrait Enclosure in raised ink, which offers a selection of our most popular monograms in your choice of raised-ink color.  Like embossing? Try the Durham Framed Portrait Enclosure with gorgeous embossed borders and your first and last name.

Accessorize your gifts with Classic Monogram Keepsake Ornament from giftsin24.comUse Keepsake Ornaments as Gift Tags

Want to add something a little unusual, and a little sparkly, to your gift wrapping? Try using a personalized keepsake ornament as a gift tag. The Classic Monogram Keepsake Ornament works beautifully when you personalize it with your friend’s monogram. It makes hand-delivering your gift that much more special when you give a gift with such a wow-factor presentation. Other options are Giftsin24 sports-themed ornaments, such as the Baseball Keepsake Ornament, which offer a range of sports themes for the children, teens and sports fans in your life.

Soltero Shot Glass from Giftsin24 ships in 24 hours.

Accessorize a small gift, like a pair of earrings or necklace, by tucking it into a personalized shot glass.

Use an Engraved Glass as the Container

For something even more unique, try using a personalized, engraved glass as the container. This strategy creates wonderfully simple gifts for larger groups, such as bridal parties, party favors or work colleagues. Try slipping a pair of earrings wrapped in tissue into the Altamira Monogram Shot Glass for your bridal party besties. Or roll up a fabric gift — a cute tank top, set of cloth napkins, fuzzy socks, fashion scarf, etc. — and tuck it inside a personalized mason jar like the Iguala Mason Jar, personalized with each work colleague’s name. The possibilities are endless.

How to Give Bridal Registry Gifts that Get Noticed

Pair bridal registry gifts with personalized gifts

Pair personalized coasters with bridal registry items like glasses, trays and ice buckets.

Every now and then, when we go to a bridal shower, we see a gift that elicits those oohs and ahhs from the guests. “Wow! Look at that gift!” “Oh, that’s so neat!” Want to be that gift-giver? We’ve got some bridal shower gifts that really shine, especially when you combine them with bridal registry gifts the couple asked for.

These days, most brides- and grooms-to-be create bridal registry lists at major retailers, so it’s easy to choose something you know they’ll use.

Often these lists are very utilitarian: whisks, cookie sheets, and colanders. So it’s fun to customize gifts to give them something not only that they’ll use, but that they’ll LOVE too. It feels great to hear all the oohs and ahhs, and to see the delighted surprise on the couple’s faces when they open your gift.

Here are ways to combine a typical gift registry item with a personalized gift that stands out in a crowd. We’ve chosen some of our favorites.

Our New Year’s Resolution

We offer foil pressed napkins and stationery

Foil pressing

January…it’s the time of year for new beginnings and new ideas. New pledges. Resolution. Sometimes bold or even wild imaginings. You don’t stay in business for more than 40 years without taking some risks.

Here at Giftsin24.com, the retail website of Embossed Graphics, we emphasize precision and quality above all else. But we also stand for…

  • Optimism.
  • Passion.
  • Effort.
  • Will power.
  • Grit.
  • Determination.
  • Resolve.

We are proud of our products and the effort we put into them. Our New Year’s resolution is to continue our pursuit of excellence in all we do.

Giftsin24 offers embossed stationery

Embossing

Which got us thinking…do you know how we do what we do?

The world of printing is fascinating. There’s a lot going on in our production facility. Here are a few of the processes behind the products you buy from us.

How We Do What We Do

Embossing – Our embossed stationery features elegant, textured images. We achieve these through a traditional, centuries-old process known as embossing, where we press a die (a block with a reverse image of your monogram) into paper. While we employ no ink in this process, nevertheless, our embossed monograms and lettering styles convey meaning: tradition, quality, energy and style.

Foil Pressing – Our foil-pressed napkins and stationery embellishments offer just the right amount of color plus shimmer to make your personalization stand out. To create foil-pressed products, we use a heated die to adhere a thin sheet of foil to the paper. The result can range from soft and elegant silver or opal … to vivid blue or red … to bold gold or black.

Thermography is another name for raised ink. Our New Year's resolution is to be bold and determined

Thermography

Thermography – It’s a big name that means “raised ink.” We use this process on our stationery. First, we print an image on paper. While the ink is wet, we dust it with a powder and apply heat. The heat fuses the ink and powder together and makes it raise above the paper surface. The result is a delightful, shiny image filled with texture and color.

Laser Engraving  –  We use a laser to personalize our engraved gifts, such as wine glasses, bamboo cutting boards and cork coasters. It’s flashy and fun and high-tech. We use a laser beam to etch into wood, glass, cork or other material. The laser creates such high heat that it vaporizes the material. It takes just a pulse with the laser, so we work very quickly and precisely.

 

Gorgeous Bespoke Wedding Napkins

Delavan Monogram Napkin from giftsin24 ships in 24 hours.

The embossed Delavan Monogram Napkin offers several monogram choices. Shown here is the Classic Monogram.

In the 16th century, bespeak came to mean “to order or arrange in advance.” As with many words, it was only a matter of time before people started using it in a new grammatical form: the adjective bespoke, referring to clothes and other things that are ordered before they are made, according to the fabulous online resource, Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Fast forward five centuries, and the word bespoke is enjoying a renaissance in U.S. culture. In our mass-produced and digital world, we have come to appreciate beautiful objects that are custom made just for us.

The Millennial generation is taking this trend and bringing it to one of the most important occasions of anyone’s life: the wedding day. As young people seek to personalize their wedding according to their own tastes and interests — on a budget — they are looking for bespoke wedding napkins and other  elements of their event.

Young people are using our personalized wedding napkins and guest towels to create that special touch on the wedding buffet or dining table. Here are our most popular wedding napkins and guest towels. Lickety split, you can design the perfect napkin for your wedding shower, reception, cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner or bachelorette party, and in a day, they’ll be in the mail on your way to you.

Social Stationery Wardrobe Dos and Don’ts

Build a social stationery wardrobe

Correspondence or flat card

You would never walk out of the house without at least a quick thought to your appearance. The same goes for sending correspondence out into the world. The best and easiest way to be sure your messages make your best impression is to create a social stationery wardrobe.

Build a social stationery wardrobe with pieces that you love. After all, just like your clothing wardrobe, your stationery represents you in the world, so you should feel proud of the way it fits your unique style. And remember, quality stationery stands the test of time. While many of your missives will be discarded, some will be kept for years, maybe decades or even centuries!

So what’s in a social stationery wardrobe? These are the basic pieces that provide the tools you need for any occasion that pops up. We recommend four must-have pieces in your stationery wardrobe:

Flat card or correspondence card

If you need to write just a couple of lines, a flat card is the perfect tool. Need to send your father-in-law the belt he left at his last visit? Slip in a flat card with a quick hello. Want to send a memorial donation in the name of a friend’s sister? Write your instructions to the charity on a flat card and include the check. Anytime you need to send a casual,  brief missive, the flat card works beautifully.

How to use: Write  your brief message on the side of the card that shows your name or monogram.

Folded note

Folded note or foldover note

A folded note is slightly more formal. It’s perfect for one of the most common social tasks we perform (or should be performing, ahem! ): the thank you note. Folded notes give plenty of space to express gratitude for a wedding, birthday, Christmas, anniversary or baby shower gift. Folded notes are also perfect for acknowledging the nice things that people do for you. It could be that referral that a client made on your behalf. Or the wonderful dinner party you got invited to.  Ask yourself: “Did someone spend time and effort to do something just for me?” Return their energy by writing a thank you note on a folded note.

And using polished and professionally made thank you notes can be rewarding in other ways: If you are on the job hunt, doing job interviews or attending sales calls, that embossed folded note could make or break a potential employer or client’s impression of you.

How to use: Start on the lower inside panel. If you need more space, move to the upper inside panel.

Letter sheet

Writing papers or letter sheets

If you are writing a message of a few paragraphs or more, use writing papers, also called letter sheets. Whether you are channeling your inner Jane Austen or simply telling your college bound daughter how much you love her, writing sheets emblazoned with your name or monogram are the perfect touch.  Accompany the paper with matching envelopes and a pretty stamp, and you will create correspondence worthy of being handed down through the ages… or at least saved for a little while.

How to use: Write on the front of the paper only. Use a blank sheet for the second page and find your best pen filled with blue or black ink.

Build a social stationery wardrobe at giftsin24.com

Gift enclosure

Gift enclosures

Whether you are giving a bottle of wine for getting that big sale or offering a gift to your evening’s host, a gift enclosure is your tool. Keeping a well-stocked stash of these around will help you avoid a last-minute scramble to the drug store. A well-crafted enclosure ensures that every gift is presented beautifully.

How to use: Brevity is your friend here. Sign your name under a brief greeting: “Thank you!” “I love you” “Happy Birthday,” etc.

Assembling your social stationery wardrobe 

You can put together a beautiful stationery wardrobe using individual cards, notes , writing papers  and enclosures that you love on their own. Buying individually gives you more flexibility and design choices. You can select pieces that are on trend, traditional designs or a mix of both.

Or you can purchase a coordinating set. Giftsin24 offers a number of wardrobes and ensembles that represent terrific values. Especially if you love a particular lettering style or monogram, purchasing a wardrobe is an easy way to get what you need quickly. Here are a few of our favorites:

Henley Monogram Wardrobe. This graceful assortment of embossed papers gives you many options to fit any occasion. Featuring your beautifully embossed monogram on high quality paper. Includes choice of monogram. Each Monogram Wardrobe set includes 50 letter sheets, 50 folded notes, and 50 enclosures with 150 paper-matched envelopes. Choose a return address or hand-inserted lining to make this set complete. Supplement with the Delavan Monogram Card to complete your monogrammed, embossed wardrobe.

Cove Wardrobe. An amazing value. The Cove Wardrobe has you covered. Be prepared for all of life’s occasions with a letter sheet, folded note and gift enclosure. Beautifully embossed in a bold, pleasing lettering style. 150 pieces, total, with 150 color-matched envelopes. Choose a return address or hand-inserted lining to make this an extra special gift. Add the Corridor Card to complete the set.

Somerset Wardrobe. The Somerset Wardrobe features three sizes of single panel cards (Apex, Correspondence and Enclosure) in your choice of ink color and lettering style. Containing 150 pieces, plus 150 matching envelopes, this set will cover all your casual stationery needs. Optional hand-inserted lining and return address on the envelopes. Supplement with the Somerset Letter Sheet to complete your raised-ink wardrobe.
