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.

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.

Personalized Notes Say You Care

Notes_imageHappy Valentine’s Day! Use personalized notes to tell people you love them all throughout the year, not just on Valentine’s Day.

Remember the cute Valentines we swapped in grade school (hoping to get one from our secret crush!) and those little pastel-colored conversation hearts?  Or the first “real” Valentine’s Day you shared with your new love?

Romance is wonderful at any age, but what about all the other special relationships in our lives?  We all have people that are dear to us.  There are our children, our parents and grandparents, friends, siblings and relatives. It’s important to let them know that they’re loved and appreciated as well, not just on Valentine’s Day, but any day of the year.

Great reasons to send a personalized note or card

– Just because you thought of them today
– You haven’t seen them since the holidays and you miss them
– A friend or neighbor is recovering from an illness or surgery and a written hello will lift their spirits
– Share good news – about your upcoming wedding, new job or a baby
– Say thanks for the get-together they hosted or the lunch date you shared
– Tell them how much a small act or word of kindness from them meant to you
– Brighten the day of someone in the military – they’re far from home

Cards_imageThere are so many ways to stay in touch, to say thanks or you’re welcome, to acknowledge an achievement, share a milestone, offer congratulations and best wishes.  Take a few minutes out of your day to write a personalized note.  It may mean the world to the recipient. You never know – it may arrive right at the moment they need it most.  So if you’re thinking of someone, let them know.  Express your love and appreciation to those in your life any day of the year.

Wedding Stationery

If you’re looking forward to an upcoming wedding, now is the time to start thinking about your wedding stationery. These papers will help make your day special, like the save-the-dates, the invitations, and thank you notes.

Personalized Wedding Thank You Notes

You may think that you’ll only need personalized thank you notes for writing wedding thank yous after the big day, but there will be many other occasions to pen a line of appreciation. Think engagement parties, bridal showers, luncheons and get-togethers. Each time someone hosts a party, sends a gift or extends their congratulations, you should respond with a personal, handwritten thank you note.
