January is the time of year I find myself searching out new stationary goods. Somehow the new year doesn’t feel quite so new without some fresh cards to use for thank you cards, notes to friends and birthday greetings. Over the years, my stash has started to become something of a collection of fantastic artists who pride themselves on the art of find paper goods. I find that if I keep myself well stocked with options that I would want to receive, it’s easier than ever to choose one to send out on a minute’s notice. Plus, January is the absolute best time to stock up on holiday greetings for next year because it allows you to be ahead of the game from the get go. The perfect way to a “Happy New You.”
Samantha and Owen Troy, the husband and wife team behind Design des Troy, create the kind of stationary I wish I could claim as my own. The “I Heart Your Guts” Valentine card is actually making me rethink my “no Valentine” policy with my man. And the “Triangle Pattern” cards?. Swoon. As far as that jump start on next year’s holiday, look no further. The “Death Ray Rudolph” cards are absolute perfection. Design des Troy also creates custom invitations for weddings, album covers, you name it. A “Happy New You” seems to wrap up nicely when its got the right design, don’t you think?
