To achieve the ultimate princess look, combine gold lettering with a fuchsia border.

One Stamp, Lots of Love

Giftsin24 cards take just one first class postage stamp.

Part of the fun of sending a letter is finding beautiful stamps for the envelope.

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.

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.

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.

If you are planning a destination wedding, a three-day weekend extravaganza or a holiday weekend wedding, sending a save-the-date card

has become a necessity.

In these situations, as a general rule, it’s best to send a save-the-date card at least 6 months before the ceremony, and possibly 8 months if you are planning a destination wedding.

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

If you are planning a simple wedding locally, you won’t need a save-the-date card, unless you have a lot of guests coming from out of town.

What’s So Special About Embossing?

Embossed, embossing, monogram, giftsin24.com

California Classic Frame Monogram Note updates the classic embossed monogram with a punch of color.

Embossing, which is a little like printing, but without the ink, makes stationery or napkins special.  Nothing says, “style, class and tradition” more than an embossed monogram or name on a piece of stationery.

That’s why embossed items make memorable and heart-felt gifts.

Embossing is a process where paper is squeezed between two molds, or dies, to create a raised impression on the paper.

How can you tell high-quality embossing from poor-quality embossing?

  • Look at the front of the paper. The edges should be crisp. This crisp quality is harder to achieve with thicker paper (but, of course, we’ve got that figured out.)
  • Now, look at the back of the paper. You should see a deep texture change in the embossed area. The paper should have been squeezed up and into the embossed pattern or lettering. If there’s just a shallow impression, then the embossing is inferior.

Giftin24’s Damask Note is one of our finest examples of embossing.

GiftsIn24 and its parent company, Embossed Graphics, have been embossing stationery since 1978. Needless to say, we have perfected our technique over the last 36 years. In fact, we create the highest quality embossed personalized stationery out there.

One other thing you should know about our process, according to Richard Pauling, owner of GiftsIn24: We take the time to get the embossing done right. “Our operators have no quota to perform each day,” says Pauling. “They spend as much time as they need to on an order, even on the most demanding embossing projects.”

So, if you want to send a gift that says “wow” to someone special, consider these five embossed products, recommended by Richard. Pride and craftsmanship go into every product:

Classic Frame Monogram Note. A traditional border expertly embossed frames a gracefully winding monogram. Matching envelopes included. On sale in March 2014!

Banner Card. The embossing stands out on this creamy, triple-thick paper. Matching envelopes included. On sale in March 2014!

Personalized Save the Date Cards

Even though snow may be falling and the winter feels endless, it’s reassuring to know that spring is just around the corner.  Summer won’t be far behind, and that means summer parties and outdoor entertaining to look forward to.

In spite of the wintry conditions outside – or maybe because of them – it’s fun to think about and plan for the summer events we all enjoy.  Do you have a wedding shower or baby shower to plan?  How about an anniversary celebration, birthday party or graduation party?  If you want to make sure that your guests will save the day for your special celebration, send them a Save the Date card.

Sending your guests a personalized Save the Date card helps ensure that your special day or party will be attended by the ones you want to share it with.  A simple personalized card with the date and particulars of your get-together will keep guests informed and up-to-date on details.   They can mark their calendars and look forward to your event with happy anticipation.

Guarantee that your guests will keep your celebration in mind with one of Giftsin24’s convenient and stylish Save the Date cards.
