Paper Freckles Design Birthday Cards You’ll Adore.
To start the week we have some brand new greetings cards all the way from Richmond, Virginia. Six funny birthday cards created by independent publisher Paper Freckles.
Behind the brand is husband & wife team Joe & Coleen Akers. With a love of paper goods the pair launched Paper Freckles in 2009. In the early days the design studio created wedding stationery and custom design work. Over the last five years the business has expanded and they now have an impressive collection of cards and stationery carried in boutiques across Virginia and North Carolina.
Their unique brand of fun greeting cards and stylish stationery are designed to make people happy. Combining Joe’s sarcastic streak and sleek illustrations with Coleen’s eye for detail. The result is warm, witty paper goods full of character. In this latest range Paper Freckles are banishing prim and proper from the birthday celebrations. The new cards mix snarky and sweet to give six ways to wish your friends and family a happy birthday.
Of the many cards to hit the blog’s inbox recently these new cards really stood out. I love the sharp graphics and bright colour palette. Throw in funny, modern sentiments and you’ve got a hugely appealing new range that I hope Joe & Coleen decide to expand to other card-giving occasions. For today’s post I’m sharing a few of my personal favourties, see what you think …
The featured birthday cards retail at $4.00 (about £2.50 at time of writing). The hand-lettered designs are printed with Eco-friendly soy inks on a premium card stock. Each card is blank inside for your own personal message.
