Our Holiday Gift Shop Is Now Open!
November 25th, 2015

First, we should certainly say Happy Thanksgiving. Or what is also known as that brief respite before the official beginning of retail madness. Black Friday! Door-buster offers! Cyber Monday!

If you’d rather sit back and enjoy the weekend and avoid the shops, but still have a few people on your list … well, we have a solution for you. Our holiday gift shop is now open.


We believe a fine bit of paper is one of life’s little luxuries.

With nothing more than $20 in our holiday gift shop (and a lot under $10), these are also very affordable luxuries.

Our shop is a carefully curated collection of some our most tempting paper goodies. Notebooks, notepads, art prints, cards – and our limited edition 2016 Quote Calendar.

Plus! We’re providing free shipping on any orders through 15 December as our holiday gift to you. Just remember to use the code HAPPYSHIP at checkout.

So, sit back in that comfy chair, prop up your ipad and have a browse through our holiday shop.

Special Gift for Early Bird Card Shoppers!
November 6th, 2015

We get it. You’ve just packed away your Halloween outfit, finally thrown out the old pumpkin that was sitting on the porch and now we want you to think about Christmas already?!


Well, yes, but to cushion the Christmas blow we’re offering a little gift just for you. Enjoy a free box of 8 Christmas Reindeer enclosure cards (see below) with your purchase from our online store. These mini cards, measuring 2.5×3.5″, are the perfect thing to dress up a present.


This year we have plenty of fresh new designs to choose from. A personal favorite might be these “Eat. Drink. Be Merry. Repeat.” The rich red has really printed up nicely, and we pair them with a shimmery gold envelope.


Or maybe you like the holiday with a bright pop of color. These Merry Baubles are printed with neon ink on premium white card stock with a gold envelope. Like all our holiday cards, they are available as single cards, or as a boxed set of 8.


If you’re looking for luxe, the hand-drawn stars on our “All is Calm” card are picked up with gold foil and actually shimmer in the light.


Perhaps you’re a doxie-lover, in which case we have our rather adorable dachshund with a bright red Rudolph nose.


Naturally many of your favorites designs from years past return again, like this “Fabulous” Christmas card.

That’s just a holiday taster! See our whole collection of holiday cards here.

And just a little bit of fine print on our offer: The Holiday Reindeer mini cards (a $10 value) are yours provided you make a minimum $15 online purchase, and your order is placed by 30 November. (This offer is not valid in brick and mortar stores.)

So go on, choose your Christmas cards now. Wouldn’t it be nice to have at least one thing knocked off your holiday to-do list already?

Top Sellers from the Stationery Show
June 16th, 2015


A month ago, the world of paper creatives converged on New York for an annual shindig called “The National Stationery Show”, or the NSS. And, yep, that’s me, above, plying our wares in the halls of the Javits Center.

Now that the last of the post-show orders have headed out the door, we have a chance to catch our breath and share our top sellers from the NSS. Drum roll, please …


1. Happy Palm Beach colors and a lovely quote from Lilly Pulitzer helped make this birthday card our number one.


2. This anniversary card, thermo-printed for extra pop, proved to be right on target.


3. Just in time for the wedding season, this card works as elegantly for engagements.


4. This great quote from Thomas Jefferson was among a set of 5 cards that featured his words – though everyone seemed to love a little rebellion that little bit more …


5. Cycle-mania shows no signs of slowing down. This neon-inked little number was our most popular thank you card. (Available as a single card or in a boxed set of 8 cards.)


6. And, finally: Candles, balloons, presents, cake. Need we say more? With hand lettered type designed to look like icing.

With any luck, these cards are now winding their way to a store near you, but of course they are all also available online for immediate purchase. Just click here to have a browse.

Palm Beach Illustrated Press!
April 16th, 2015


When people ask me to describe Palm Beach, I reach for a few answers.

If I want to be amusing (if, for example, a cocktail is in one hand) I ask people to imagine a sunny island of thin women in tennis whites walking dogs that look like snowflakes. And men wearing red trousers and velvet slippers to shop for their groceries.

But if I want to be completely sincere I say it’s actually been a marvelous place to start a little company.

Because this island, from its stores to its press, has been nothing short of enthusiastic and supportive from the moment we started J.Falkner. Case in point: this month’s issue of Palm Beach Illustrated (its lush cover above), where they celebrate the power of the written word and ask us to join the conversation (which we did gladly, see below).

Special Christmas Card Offer!
November 27th, 2014

Now I know what you’re thinking. The thanksgiving turkey is barely cold, and already we need to be talking reindeer? But actually this is my favorite time of the year.

I love those early weeks of holiday preparation, when everything — from baking cookies, to creating bespoke wrapping paper, to finding a perfect present for everyone on my list — seems in the realm of possibility … before reality sets in and I think of course there’s nothing wrong with a gift certificate aren’t shop-bought cookies just as nice?


The one bit I try not to rush is the holiday card tradition. Of course I would say that, but is there anything nicer than sitting down with a fresh box of cards, a list of dear friends, and reaching out to say hello over the holidays?

Naturally we’d like to make your job a little bit easier. So we’re offering you dear readers a special discount at jfalkner.com. Use the code HAPPY for 20% off, sitewide. Offer good from today right until 25 December, so go on, let’s get happy over the holidays.


Here are a few more new holiday card designs to enjoy.


Because not everyone has access to reindeer.


And if you can’t be fabulous over the holidays, then when can you?


New this season! We are introducing little enclosure-size (2.5 x 3.5″) holiday cards (like the ones above). Perfect for dressing up a present or, if we do manage to throw something in the oven after all, adorning a delicious box of Christmas cookies.

Wishing you happy holiday shopping at jfalkner.com. And rest assured our elves do their darndest to get holiday card orders shipped out within 48 hours.

(At the moment we just ship in the US, but now our Canadian friends can find an exclusive range of J.Falkner designs, in conjunction with Paper E-Clips, at Indigo stores and independent retailers across the country.)
