caroline gardner

hooray

if you haven't had the pleasure of sending or receiving a card from caroline gardner, you will be dying to after you read today's post!

caroline gardner is a wonderful stationer based in west london. this weekend i picked up a birthday card by caroline, and knew i had to do a post about her. the designs are so fresh and modern, simple and fun.

a little excerpt from the website :

{ "caroline gardner is one of the most respected independent greeting card and stationery designers in the united kingdom. caroline, who trained and initially worked as a painter, started designing cards fifteen years ago after receiving a commission for a small range from a tokyo based art gallery. the cards were an instant success and the company was formed shortly afterwards.

carolineโ€™s quirky yet sophisticated designs are brought to life by employing little used traditional printing techniques, such as letter press and die stamping, but interpreted in a very modern way. the cards have an extremely loyal following and are both instantly recognisable and highly sought after by a diverse group of consumers." }

i was able to get some packs of her cards on sale after christmas-- i can't wait to use them for the holidays!
