New York Card Stories
February 17th, 2012

It’s always a thrill for us to see a card’s progress: a simple idea sketched in our Palm Street studio, that then emerges from the printer in vibrant color and, finally, migrates to a happy home in stores across America and Canada (now 50 shops and counting!). Our trip to New York this week was the perfect chance to pay some of these places a visit.

We confess we’re rather touched, for example, to see our little green snail (above) making a slow but sure path through a thicket of cards at The Green Cottage in upstate New York.

Canvas, which recently opened a new branch in Chelsea (above), specializes in a palette of organic neutrals, and our boxed cards, printed on ivory stock, sit well among these soothing colors.

The uber-luxe furniture shop Ochre happens to have one of our favorite doors in Soho. Look how beautifully patinated it is (above), and how the distressed wood artfully sets off the clean type of their signage. In this store, our cards make a colorful swirl in a teak bowl set on the counter.
