Antique Map Correspondence Cards

  • $12.50


Surely the most useful item we didn’t know we needed: these beautifully printed Made in Italy (Tuscany, to be precise) correspondence cards. Once they were tucked into the top desk drawer, we reached for them again and again.  A border from an antique map is printed on the front of each cream-colored card, and the inside of each envelope is printed with images of antique maps. They truly are appropriate for all-occasions: happy birthday to a favorite relative or friend, congratulations to a graduate, a get-well-soon note, a greeting tucked into a gift, best wishes to a departing colleague.

The size of the card is brilliant; 5.25” x 3.25”—just enough “real estate” to accommodate a couple of sentences, but not large enough to require a long message. We’re not much for logos emblazoned all over products, but the subtle embossed name of the Italian printer on the back of the envelope reminds us of those other beautiful signifiers: watermarks. The colors are soft beige, gray, sepia, greens, blues with touches of terra cotta.

 Ten cards and envelopes, 5.25” x 3.25”, in a wallet portfolio.
