Gift Message

  • Harkening back to a time when a mourner’s behavior was prescribed with precision, these letter-pressed notecards will allow you to express your thanks for the kindness of friends with subtle beauty and sincerity.

    Traditional mourning stationery was printed with black borders of varying widths: the thickest black for a period of full mourning and moving on to progressively thinner black borders as time passed. Although a modern mourner will not necessarily follow such rigid convention, the varied space for writing a note will no doubt prove useful when only a very brief Thank You is required.

    Give this elegant set of stationery as a gift with the promise of your time to address envelopes or deliver finished notes to the post office as a thoughtful and gracious gesture.

    These single panel cards are letterpress printed by hand in Brooklyn, New York on Pearl White 100% cotton 220lb cover stock. Includes 55 A7 (5.25 x 7.25) envelopes lined with black crepe paper.
