Night Owl Paper Goods is an eco-chic stationary company that creates handmade letterpress cards, wedding invitations, scrap-booking supplies and so much more. Although their work is inspired by American & Swedish folk art, it is so detailed, so fine and comely that it is Art all on its own. In fact when I received the cards I’d chosen to review part of me wanted to place them in a frame rather than write on them and for quite some time I simply ran my fingers through the details that appeared weaved in natural paper. My husband and I have an affinity towards parchment, as if it contained mystical qualities alone and in our early days wrote many letters on eco-friendly cloud cards. And here I sat with my chosen cards, lovingly tracing the elegant lines that would carry our affections (mine and my sons) for his birthday and Father’s Day soon coming.
The cards I had chosen for my Husband were the Happy Birthday Cupcake Owl, for my youngest sons love of balloons and cupcakes. The little owl floating on top was a hoot! The “DAD” card is for Father’s Day and I loved it because it was unique in the fact that it is actually a wooden card, a very fine piece of wood that the grains vary in each one so that no two are alike. We could make it unique just for him by writing and drawing on it which later can be placed in a beautiful frame to rest on the sill beside his pillow. The Peacock Feather card, which so gracefully speaks “I love you”, is simply my most favorite card. In truth the most precious card I have ever come across considering it’s finery. It had originally only come in packs, but I had whispered my compliments of it and when I received the others there it was in it’s wrapping waiting to be written on in lessor ink.
Night Owl Paper Goods is ran by such endearing people and with the exquisiteness of their art with paper I don’t think I could find myself going anywhere else. Cards are personal, you don’t have to be a writer or a newspaper man like my husband and I to adore a card, but it means something when you find the perfect one and it matters when you give something more than one of the bland off the supermarket shelf cards. As my husband read the words in my handwriting that held no justice to the details of the card itself, he grew weepy and I knew these were perfect.
Father’s Day is coming soon. Give the special man in your world a little something more than the typical… give him yourself wrapped tightly in an earth friendly charming card handmade by Night Owl Paper Goods and inspired by the beauty of the world around you.
