Mothers, and Dads — and Grads!
April 11th, 2016

Time to refill the ink on your favorite fountain pen, because it’ll be a busy few months ahead for card-senders. Mark your calendars …

Mother’s Day is less than a month away (May 8 this year), then Father’s Day in June (19th to be exact) — and don’t forget the graduates setting out onto fresh new paths throughout May and June. (Note dates correct for the US and Canada only; the UK operates to its own tune.)


We have several new Mother’s Day designs, including this one (above), with one of our favorite flowers as an accent – the Poppy – and a fresh palette of coral, fuschia and apple green.


Celebrate your fabulous father with this new design (above), great for Father’s day, but just as good for his birthday, or a general shout out to your dad any time of the year.


We have a new graduation card that’s become one of our most popular for Grads (if the stores buying them is any indication). A simple, strong quote from one of our favorite Presidents. And in the madness of the current election cycle, it’s good to cast our minds back to some of the greats who shaped the country — and for the better.

Ok, political broadcast over. Now let’s get to the good stuff: our special offer! To make things temptingly easy, we’re offering free shipping. The magic code is LUVMOM. It’s goood for any card — Mother’s Day, birthday, as you wish — and any size of order. Until 30 June.

And, since we know first hand what it’s like to have a letter written and addressed but lurk in your bag for days (weeks?) because you haven’t had the chance to get a stamp, we are also including a bit of magic: a free stamp.

So, now all you need to decide is what to say in your card. And isn’t that the fun part?

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.


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.


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


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


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


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?!


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?
