Spring Stationery from Crane & Co. at Hyegraph

First day of Spring in San Francisco started with some Spring showers at Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy. Spring showers mean pretty cards & stationery from Crane & Co. It’s always fun writing a little note or receiving one in the mail. My teenage daughter and her cousins started to correspond regularly by mail from San Francisco to Boston. At first neither one were even aware of purchasing stamps and the correct envelopes nor each other’s addresses. After the first notes they got the hang of it. Now, we get little notes with heart stickers on the envelopes, fun pictures with drawings inside.

No matter what year we’re in, communication via mail has a special place. This is the only way to actually send physical objects and not mere images. Soon, my daughter and niece will be taking the plane to visit. They are making plans and have to-do lists, places to visit and fun activities to share.

Although this young generation of teens face-time daily, they’ve found that sending each other notes with words of inspirations via mail adds an anticipation and physical reminder of their relationship and care for each other. I am sure when they do get together their time will be marked by postcards and scrapbook archiving the time spent together.

Here are some fun notes from Crane & Co. you can pick up this Spring and all year round at our little store at the Embarcadero Center location.

Example One: Letterpress Plum Blossom Note Card

Letterpress Plum Blossom Note Card from Crane & CO. $19.00 per box ~ www.Hyegraph.com

The above fuchsia letterpress plum blossom note card from Crane & Co. is just perfect for correspondence. It’s vibrant colors and texture are great to write, send and receive.

Example Two: Letterpress Sunflower Note Card

The above bright yellow, letterpress sunflower note card from Crane & Co. was a hit on facebook and instagram when we posted it. It’s festive, fun and inspiring for writing a note to a friend or colleague.

Example Three: Great Horned Owl Note Card

Paula Skene Ginkgo Greeting Cards at Hyegraph Embarcadero Financial District San Francisco

Paula Skene Designs has created the Ginkgo Greeting Card made with foils, embossed on top of the finest papers created from hand carved brass dies. These beautiful cards are now available at our store Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy at 3 Embarcadero Center in the Financial District of San Francisco. Paula Skene Designs are located in Berkeley, CA where they have been designing and printing original greeting cards and stationery for over 30 years. When you purchase a Paula Skene Design, you know you are purchasing a quality product made locally in the USA and right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Paula Skene Designs Gold Foil Stamped & Embossed Ginkgo Greeting Cards

Ginkgo greeting card from Paula Skene

Ginkgo Greeting Card from Paula Skene Designs, Foil Stamped & Embossed, available at Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy www.hyegraph.com

The above example of a Ginkgo Greeting Card/Note Card design is well suited for the Bay Area since the Ginkgo tree 1st appeared 250 years ago and now only found in the wild of China, of course it is grown throughout other regions. The Bay Area is largely influenced by Asian culture and traditions since there is a majority of Asian people who have immigrated and reside here.

The gold foil of the Ginkgo on the green has a rose tint and the gold foil stamped Gingko of the cantaloupe colored note card is an antique gold tone. It’s really quite different when you take the card out of the box and see the quality. When you correspond with one of these note cards you’re actually sending the recipient a gift because this is truly a piece of art. Each Paula Skene note card is individually stamped on the back with the Paula Skene Signature in Gold. In addition, each card is also stamped with gold on the card edging. This creates an extra touch of elegance and luxurious detail. These boxed note cards come in a box of 8 cards with matching ivory envelopes. The note cards retail at $18.00 a box at Hyegraph.

Here’s what Paula says inspired her to create the Ginkgo Design for her greeting card collection:

Ginkgo leaves are elegant and fascinating. I love the fine thin lines that start at the stem and fan out over the entire leaf. Each leaf has a different ruffle along the edge. In the fall with a gentle breeze they are shimmering fans of gold. After a rain their gorgeous silhouettes decorate the sidewalk in a random all over pattern. They are way more than just “a leaf”.

I was first introduced to Ginkgo leaves 30 years ago. A New Yorker phoned me to ask if I had a card with a Ginkgo leaf. When I said “no” and that I did not know what they look like he kept his promise and sent me a few. Thus began my fascination with their shape and texture.

Paula

Please come into Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy located at 3 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA to pick up your gorgeous Paula Skene Note Cards. We also carry the Paula Skene Every Day Cards, Holiday Cards and Enclosure Cards. Please call us, send an email or come in to check out our selection in person because a picture is not enough to see the detail and craftsmanship. You too will become a Paula Skene Conveyer.
