Fresh Summer Greeting Cards

Need something for that summer birthday, wedding, or just because?  We at PSB love these quirky card companies, in stock now:

Seltzer
Makers of the seven year pen, notebooks, tote bags, and those curious buttons that we love to rifle through at the front counter, Seltzer Goods adds great graphic design to everything they produce.  Their cute, snarky greeting cards are custom made in the USA out of 100% post-consumer recycled paper and printed in Canada with veggie-based inks.

Meri Meri
Meri Meri makes whimsical little gifts and cards for every occasion.  Even the mini cards are sold with coordinating envelopes in subtle prints that complement the cards inside.  The cards themselves are pastel confections of textured paper, ribbons, glitter, and sometimes even googly eyes, designed in England and handcrafted in China.  There's so much stuff on them, you'll need additional postage!


Two Bad Mice
This English publisher supplies lovely cards featuring the work of contemporary artists.  We particularly like those graced by Anita Jeram's expressive animal watercolors and Allison Friend's pet scenes.  They're fun, classy, and delightfully occasion-less.


Archelaus
One of our staff spent time in Washington, D.C., and convinced us to check out the locally crafted Archelaus cards.  They've been flying off shelves ever since, and I have to admit, I've purchased my fair share.  The distinctive text and vintage images are just irresistible.  Those with steampunk sensibilities or just a wacky sense of humor will especially appreciate the "notorious check-box cards," all printed on recycled paper.


Our locals!
Specialty Cards 4 U: Julie Strickland's pretty specialty cards and pocket notes are all of the finest quality. 
Janice G. Fischel's original photographs have been made into a great collection of blank notecards.

Our card stock changes constantly, so keep an eye out for new favorites when you come in!
