Greeting Cards

Hand-crafted from ultra-thick 110lb Mohawk card stock, these cards stand out visually and tactilely.

Paper scraps are turned back into handmade paper at our own facilities and repurposed. $6 MSRP, $3 Wholesale.

Our stickers are printed on premium sticker paper to provide bold colors, then laminated to help resist scratches, moisture, and UV damage. Suitable for things like notebooks, laptops, water bottles, and bumpers. All our stickers include an extra margin of backing paper around the sticker, making it easy to remove. $4 MSRP, $2 Wholesale.

Interested in being the first to carry these new products? Get in touch and we’ll work with you to introduce them in your shop. $10 MSRP, $5 Wholesale.
