Sunshine in September

My father first turned me on to Henry David Thoreau when I was a teenager, and yet every time I return to Thoreau I’m struck by a new insight.

My latest favorite line is this: “One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” Because, here at J.Falkner, that’s what we are all about: bright, colorful cards to bring summery happiness whatever the season.

After all, if we’re lucky enough to base ourselves in Palm Beach (that’s the Eastern end of Worth Avenue, above, and beyond that the Atlantic), why not share the joy?

What is yellow but pure sunshine? This new trio of cards are now available at retailers across the US, and also up north in Canada at Indigo, and various independent stores.

These awnings along Worth Avenue in Palm Beach are my favorite — something so fresh about the yellow, with white piping, against the soft pink stone.

Sunshine through palm fronds — the essence of Palm Beach.

And, finally, a charming street vignette of two Vespas idling while their owners pop into Neiman Marcus for something no doubt essential.

May there be sunshine wherever you are!

(And remember you can shop these cards, and many more, at our online store here.)

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?

Let the New Year begin, with love and laughter for all!

Going for Holiday Gold
November 14th, 2012

It may seem counterintuitive to start a post about holiday cards with an envelope, but if you’re reading this, you know that here at J.Falkner we love the details. After all, in this world of first impressions, the envelope is the first thing your sendee will see.

The paper on our “gold-leaf” envelopes has a smooth iridescent finish that resembles metallic specks. And when they catch the light they really do shimmer (above).

For the cards themselves, we knew we wanted to do something very simple, and very chic. Just a few playful images, a restrained color palette (above), and a luxurious use of white space to appreciate the thick card stock. Finally, we tucked the holiday greeting inside the card so the design outside is crisp and clean.

Of course we love a cute reindeer, but are they really the only animal in the God’s kingdom that gets to celebrate Christmas? Surely there is some fabulous Santa Claus somewhere who would welcome a leaping Rudolph Zebra into his herd (like the one, above).

And step forward Flamingo. You’re every bit as able as a turtle dove to spread good holiday cheer, and — perhaps it’s our Florida-bias — rather more elegant.

These cards are now available at fine retailers across the country, and online holiday cards can be ordered from our own shop here. Or just email us at info@jfalkner.com and we’d be happy to let you know of a store that carries them near you.
