              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.

                3 Reasons Our Envelopes are Different

                Envelopes are beautifully color-matched to stationery

                We make all our envelopes in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Aurora, IL

                Longtime Giftsin24 customers know our products shine above the competition’s. One reason is our color-matched, perfectly fitted, beautifully crafted envelopes. That’s because we make all our envelopes right here in our state-of-the art manufacturing plant in Aurora, IL. We have total control of the process, from start to finish. Plus, our sole focus is on creating a perfect product and delighting you, our customer.

                Some other companies don’t make their envelopes. Telltale signs include…

                • mismatched stationery and envelope papers.  Ivory stationery and white envelopes? Never from us !
                • envelope proportions don’t match stationery. For example, there might be 1/2 inch extra space on the sides and 1 inch of extra space on the top and bottom. Yuck!
                • too much room in the envelope. For example, the stationery rattles around inside the envelope–there’s no need for that !

                Giftsin24 envelopes are always perfect

                Here’s how we do it:

                1. We order our stationery paper and envelope paper from the same mill. That ensures that all papers closely match in color. Plus, this mill creates high quality paper using the best sustainable practices. Check them out here: www.NeenahPaper.com

                Giftsin24 offers beautifully crafted stationery with matching envelopes

                Here’s Raphael zipping around on one of our three-wheel bikes to carry freshly made envelopes

                2. Our expert envelope makers have been making envelopes for decades. They work within tiny tolerances to ensure that each of your envelopes is absolutely perfect. In addition, we don’t give our envelope makers quotas. If one doesn’t turn out, it goes into the recycle bin, and the crafts person starts with new paper.

                3. We cut and fold our envelopes to our highest quality standards. Consequently, when you insert the matching stationery, it fits like a glove.  It’s all in the details !

                  Do You Need to Send a Save-the-Date Card?

                  Early Spring Save the Date Card by Giftsin24.com

                  Our Early Spring Save the Date Card elegantly gives guests advance notice of your wedding.

                  Sending a wedding save-the-date card: when is it necessary and when is it not? These days, there are so many tasks associated with planning a wedding. It’s nice to know if they are all must-dos or might-be-nice-to-dos. Wedding save-the-date cards straddle both.

                  Yes, You Need a Save the Date Card

                  Sending a save-the-date card has become a necessity in certain situations. If you are planning a destination wedding, send one. Same goes for a three-day weekend extravaganza. They are also convenient for a holiday weekend wedding. Have a lot of out-of-town guests? Accommodate them by giving them advance notice.

                  In these situations, as a general rule, send a save-the-date card at least 6 months before the ceremony. For a destination wedding, send one 8 months ahead.

                  Giving your guests advance notice about your wedding date will give them adequate time to make travel arrangements. They may also need to rearrange work schedules and save for transportation or lodging.

                  No, You Don’t

                  If you are planning a simple wedding locally, you won’t need a save-the-date card. A typical two or three month notice is adequate. Plus, you can count of word of mouth helping to inform guests of your wedding date.

                    4 Steps to Perfect Wedding Thank You Notes

                    Classic Monogram Bordered Card by Giftsin24.com

                    Customize the Classic Monogram Bordered Card with a monogram or colored border that matches your wedding colors

                    The new wedding dishes have found a home in your kitchen. The wedding photos are on their way. And memories of your blissful honeymoon are fresh in your mind. Now what? Have you written your first wedding thank you note yet?

                    It might be time to tackle that pile of thank you notes you owe to your family and friends. The simple act of handwriting a thoughtful note will be a meaningful memento to them. They put in a lot of effort to help you celebrate. Taking the time to write a beautiful thank you note speaks volumes about the type of person you are and the kinds of relationships you’ll maintain for the rest of your life.

                    So, find your favorite pen. Choose some beautiful stationery and consult your gift list. Then start writing.

                    1. The Basic Format for the Wedding Thank You Note

                    The typical format for a wedding thank you note usually goes like this:

                    Salutation.

                    First line: thank them for the gift–be sure to name it. If it’s money, avoid naming the amount. The words “generous gift” will suffice.

                    Second line: tell them how you plan to use it, or some way that you admire or appreciate it.

                    Third line: thank them for their friendship or support or for coming to your event

                    Close. (Be sure both bride and groom sign each note.)

                    Simple, right?

                    2. Beyond the Basics

                    Move beyond these basics when writing to people especially close to you, or those who put extra thought and care into the gift. Perhaps you can keep these people on a separate “short list.” Add a few lines that acknowledge the generosity of parents who footed some of the wedding expenses. Praise the thoughtfulness of an aunt who created a beautiful handmade quilt out of your childhood clothes. Thank a friend who traveled across the country to be there for your big day.

                    Sienna Monogram Note from giftsin24.com makes a great wedding thank you note

                    The Sienna Monogram Note features a flowing, elegant monogram. It makes a beautiful wedding thank you note.

                    3. Add a Small Token

                    You might also choose to share a small object or additional lines of writing that are meaningful to you. You might tuck in a favorite recipe you discovered at a restaurant on your  honeymoon. Include a special quote from a parent’s toast or a lyric from your first dance. Try slipping in seeds of your favorite tree or fruit or vegetable. Perhaps you might slide in a wedding photo of you and the person you are thanking.

                    4. Choose Lovely Stationery with a Couple’s Monogram

                    May we suggest writing your thank you notes on single panel cards or folded notes featuring a beautifully embossed “couple’s monogram”? Your shared last name initial takes the center spot. Her first initial is on the left, his first initial is on the right.

                    Here are some of our favorites:

                    Traditional Monogram Note  Simple & tasteful. Thank-you notes folded in white or ivory paper never go out of style. A perennial top-seller, our Traditional Monogram Note features a flowing, embossed script for a timeless look. Ships in 24 hours.

                    Classic Frame Monogram Note from Giftsin24.com

                    A couple’s monogram features the shared last initial in the center, her first initial on the left and his first initial on the right.

                    Classic Frame Monogram Note   Giftsin24 features stationery by the top producer of embossed social stationery in the U.S., and this folding note is one reason why. You have to see and feel it in your hand to understand it: crisp, deeply impressed borders and gracefully winding letters lend elegant formality, while creamy, thick paper provides weight and consequence. Offered in traditional white or ivory with matching envelopes.

                    Classic Monogram Bordered Card   Fashions come and go, but the Classic Monogram Bordered Card is always in style. Featuring a beautifully rendered monogram in your choice of 10 raised-ink colors and a bold border in your choice of 6 colors, this card offers a multitude of options from which to create your signature look for your wedding thank you note. Try navy ink on white paper for a classic feel. If you like your stationery to match your morning latte, try the mocha ink on ivory paper. As with all our notes and cards, 50 matching envelopes are included. Optional lined envelopes make this stationery set even more yummy.
