Get Carded

www.leichic.comYour perfect cousin Marcia’s perfect holiday card arrives in your mailbox just perfectly on December 1. Her perfect family is in perfect outfits, posed perfectly for the photo.

But Marcia’s not completely perfect – you've already received a duplicate of her generic chain store cards.

This year, forget your tired news/brag letter, and say adios to a Shutterfly photo collage with these stationary ideas that’ll leave other greetings looking card bored.

Green Card
You’ll be so eco-chic for rocking out cards printed on thin wood from Night Owl Paper Goods. Cute, contemporary designs show woodland creatures like squirrels and (of course) owls engaged in all sorts of antics. Available at The Wedding Café, Ward Warehouse.

Calling Card
For the all-important thank you notes or an un-holiday card, check out the part-whimsy, mostly-mod illustration designs by kama’aina Kat Uno. Available at Alliway, Ward Warehouse. View designs online here.

Send personal holiday notes and mahalos on exquisite handmade letterpress cards by local stationer Miemiko. Order custom versions online or find ready-made designs at Alliway. Available at Alliway, Ward Warehouse.

Memory Card
A great card leaves an impression. The brand new holiday line from Waste Not Paper is edgy and classy. Classy because greetings include non-cheesy gems like “merry wishes and joyful dreams.” And edgy designs include both vintage and mod. Available at Paper Roses, 627 South Street, Honolulu. Designs are online at www.wastenotpaper.com.

Get out of Jail Free Card
Okay, so you spaced and now it’s way too late to get cards out in time. They’ll think you’re an original (not a slacker) if you send personalized Crane’s New Years’ cards. Hey, it’s one of the holidays in “Happy Holidays,” right? Order Crane’s stationary Papyrus at Ala Moana Center.
