New Cards for Spring!
March 20th, 2016

At last Spring is here, one of our favorite seasons with its sense of renewal as crocuses press up through the old leaves, and buds appear on the trees.

It’s also a time of renewal here at J.Falkner. We’ve refreshed our card offerings with a new direction of pretty pastels, gold foil and tropical motifs.

We’re especially excited about our latest collaboration with Adrian Valencia. He’s a London-based illustrator, originally from Argentina, with an ever-increasing instagram folllowing as @drawadriandraw. This isn’t the first time we’ve worked with him, but these might be our favorites so far. And the sunshine birthday card (above) is the runaway success of the card trio.

Gold foil is a something new for us. We wanted to use it in a simple graphic way so it really sings — like the spots on this new Anniversary card (above) which actually shimmer as you open the card.

jfalkner-braver-stronger

We are also continuing to add to our range of art prints. This lovely quote from A. A. Milne (of “Winnie the Pooh” fame) is printed on heavy stock paper, with hand-lettering, on a blush pink background. It measures 8×10″ and is designed to fit standard frames.

Finally, the tropics are never far from our mind, and we couldn’t resist adding to our stable of flamingo cards, with this simple thank you card (see above). We’ve paired it with a pistachio-colored envelope for a very Palm Beach color combination.

These cards have been shipping out to stores across America and — hopefully — one near you! Of course they are all also available online for immediate purchase. Just click here to have a browse. And remember, as followers of this blog, you can always use the special code FREESHIP and shipping is on us!

A Colorful Way to Start 2016!
December 3rd, 2015

As we begin the last month of this year, we naturally start thinking of the new year ahead … We’ve carefully chosen 12 of our favorite quotes to create a colorful little calendar for your desk in 2016.

dc2-cover

Loose sheets are presented in the classic-size CD jewel case (above).

dc2-loose-sheets

Each quote is accompanied by a little story about the person.

dc2-desk

The plastic case easily becomes an easel to display each month on your desk (above).

dc2-pinboard

Or, since the sheets are loose, simply pin them to a board (which is our favorite way!).

Calendars are now available at the special price of only $10 (regular price $13.95) at our online shop just click here.

Get one for yourself, and they’re also great emergency gifts to have on hand, or a charming Christmas stocking filler.

And to make it even more tempting, we are offering free shipping all this month. Just use the code HAPPYSHIP, for this or any other item from our online store ….. perhaps you still need some Christmas cards?

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?!

jfalkner-hdy15-offer

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.

jfalkner-eatdrink

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.

hdy8-boxed

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.

hdy11-goldfoilstars

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.

jf-hdy15-doxie

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

jfalkner-fab

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

NSS15-jarbuckle

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 …

jf-beinghappy

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

jf-anb-bullseye

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

jf-forever1

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

jf-pres-birthday

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 …

jf-bike-tu

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.)

jf-bd9-candlescake

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.
