a sweet surprise…

July 23, 2008

came in the mail yesterday!   One of my clients finally had my pen & ink of his house printed up on notes, and was so kind as to send me one!  I was even more impressed, that he took such care as to have my name printed on the back.  (Ray, you’re the best!  I can’t wait to work it into a Christmas Card for you!)

Anywho, this kind gesture reminded me, that I’ve yet to post much about my new notes to this blog!  For months I’ve been working with local stationer Turtle Creek. (if you haven’t visited their little boutique at the corner of Montgomery Crossroads and Whitebluff, then you are really missing out!)  Most anyone that commissions a pen & ink of their home or business, also likes to have the image printed on notes, and for years, I just turned over a disk to the client, and told them to go to the printer of their choice.  In turn, some people never took the time to find a printer, others found a printer but neglected to give me a byline, and some were of better quality than others…after a very busy 2007 Holiday Season, I decided it was time to do the leg work, and find a printer.  Turtle Creek just happens to have the best stock around, and at a good rate.  Each note is printed on fine Crane Stationary, and at roughly 3.5″ x 5″, they are the perfect size for the “anything” note!  Here’s a peek…

I just love that they got my little nesting bird on the back, and it’s just amazing how something as simple as an embossed edge can add so much to the overall feel.  Thank you Turtle Creek for roughing it out, and making this little idea of mine a reality!
