Made in America

Our stationery is made in America

Giftsin24 products are made in America by American workers

Our stationery is made in America. We produce your order from start to finish in our facility in Aurora, Illinois. It’s no secret. And it’s why we can produce your order in 24 hours. No middle men or vendors slow us down.

That’s not the case at other stationery companies. Some import their products. Very commonly, some companies pair imported white envelopes with their cards or notes. We make every single card or note and the matching envelopes right here in our facility. When you select ivory paper, you get matching ivory envelopes. When you select white paper, you get matching white envelopes.

We can spend time and care on these details. And, we go the extra mile. We can do so because all of our materials and craftspeople reside in the same building.

Greatness Guarantee – Products Made in America

In addition, we stand behind our products…because we literally stand behind our presses and other machines. Each of our highly trained staff carefully crafts every order. They take the necessary time to produce every piece of stationery or napkin to the highest standards.They re-do the project if needed.

We want you to be 100% satisfied. It’s very rare, but if you are not, we will exchange the product or refund the purchase price. American precision, and American accountability. See our Greatness Guarantee.

Our people are our most valuable asset. Many of them have worked for us for 20 or even 30 years. We take great pride in this fact. Even most of our raw materials originate in the U.S. When you order a Giftsin24 product, you support American jobs and the American economy. Thank you for your support!

It’s Hip to Be Thankful

thank you note writing and showing gratitude never goes out of style.

Gratitude is in. Thank you note writing has been circulating around in pop culture lately.

Gratitude is hip. In the news just this week, Nascar driver Daniel Hemric  penned thank you notes to American servicemen and women. They keep our country safe.

Thanking supporters

Taylor Swift is writing thank you notes to DJs, radio hosts and others who help support her musical career.

Writing of your gratitude

And, Regis Philbin helped late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon complete his regular thank you note writing bit last Friday night.

These celebrities demonstrate the power of thank you notes. They help strengthen relationships and are a main way to express your love. Plus, they may even help you in your career.

Thank you notes are powerful because people yearn to feel appreciated and acknowledged.

But you knew that already, didn’t you?

 

 

One Stamp, Lots of Love

Giftsin24 cards take just a single first class stamp.

Part of the fun of sending a letter is finding beautiful stamps for the envelope. Stationery from giftsin24 takes just a single first class stamp.

How much does it cost to send one of our cards or notes to a friend? Just the care and time to write it, plus one single first class stamp.

A Giftsin24 card or note, including the envelope, weighs about one ounce. Sending one through the United States Postal Service (USPS) requires just a single stamp (standard first class postage).

To keep things even more simple, purchase a sheet of “Forever” stamps at the post office, and you won’t have to worry about adding make-up postage when the rates change in a year or two.

In addition, our cards and notes, including our oversized Cheseapeake line, fit within USPS maximum dimensions for standard first class postage.

One Exception

The one exception is our Gift Enclosures, which measure less than the 3.5 inch by 5 inch minimum dimensions that the USPS requires. If you try to send a Gift Enclosure through the mail system, it will be rejected. Learn more here.

What Kind of Person Are You?

What Kind of Person Are You: are you a kind person?

Empathy, compassion and gratitude are some of the beautiful qualities shared by Giftsin24 customers. Be a kind person.

Here at Giftsin24, we sell personalized stationery. But that’s not all. When you purchase our product, you are doing more than simply buying stationery. You are ultimately acting on being a kind person. A polite person. A thoughtful person.

On the heals of commencement speech season, many speakers choose to focus on the importance of character and kindness. Yes, academic achievements are important, but when push comes to shove, being kind might just get you farther in life. Here are two speakers and their speeches that explore this topic and are generally judged among the best commencement addresses:

George Saunders  2013 at Syracuse University

David McCullough Jr. 2012 at Wellesley High School

Acknowledging the generosity of others keeps that positive vibe flowing. The concept of “paying it forward” has become very popular in recent years. And there’s a great reason why: Connecting with others makes life more happy, more meaningful.

Kindness is King

Writing a note in your own handwriting is a small yet powerful way to share your gratitude with those around you. From the basic thank you for a birthday gift, to the expression of your deep gratefulness to someone who changed your life, penning thoughts on paper is a wonderful, simple way to act on your best impulses, and bring more love and connection into your life.

So, we thank you, dear customer, for being the kind person you are.

Easy Father’s Day BBQ Ideas

Independence Foil Pressed Guest Towel is perfect for a Father's Day BBQ.

Independence Foil Pressed Guest Towel features many summertime motifs that are perfect for a Father’s Day BBQ.

Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 21. Did you know that the first Father’s Day was celebrated in 1910 in Spokane, Washington? And that the holiday became an official U.S. holiday only in 1972? Put in this context, Father’s Day is a relatively recent tradition. Given its place in the calendar, squarely in summertime, it’s only natural that Father’s Day is often celebrated with a backyard BBQ. And that has us licking our lips in anticipation. Whether your dad loves ribs, steaks, brats or tofu burgers, here are some ideas to help you create an extra special Father’s Day BBQ.

Menu ideas

Cooking Light recipes for Father’s Day  We love this menu from Cooking Light magazine. Steak, jalepeno poppers, potatoes and grilled corn. What’s not to love?

Decor/Theme

Is Dad a sports fan? Use his favorite sports or racing team’s colors to be the basis for the floral centerpiece and table cloth. Or maybe he’s a devoted alum of his college or high school; use those colors. For both these ideas, you can use simple white plates and clear glasses, and let the sports or school colors be the accents.

Napkins

Expression Foil Pressed Napkin  Proudly display your special message on the Expression Napkins. Names, dates, special occasions or sentiments stand out when pressed in one of 15 gorgeous foil colors on your choice of 27 high quality, three-ply papers.

Father’s Day Gift Idea

Notable Monogram Oversized Note Our Notable Monogram Note offers a choice of many exclusive monograms. Raised ink. Folded note. Double-thick paper. Choice of white or ivory paper. Comes with 50 Pinnacle pointed-flap envelopes. Opt for the border, 100% cotton paper, hand-inserted lining or return address to create a luxurious gift.
