what i want today: personalized stationery by iomoi

i'm the first to admit that i'm a huge stationery snob. i love it. i love gorgeous, thick paper with a nice texture to it. i love the feeling that comes from sending out a card that has your name engraved on it. and, in this age of technology, i love sending an actual card to someone - i know receiving them makes my whole day!

i've had iomoi's stationery on my radar for a while, but i got an email from them this morning, and as i was browsing their site for the umpteenth time, i fell in love all over again. everything they sell is amazingly fun, but i especially love their personalized note cards. you get to choose not just name vs. initials, but a picture or decorative image that really sings to you. the only hard part is that there are about 14 that sing to me! the one above seems like it would be the most versatile, 'all purpose' option - i could use this one as a thank-you card, a "hi, how are you card", any number of things. and it wouldn't be too weird to send it to someone that wasn't a girlfriend.

but really, life isn't supposed to be all-purpose, now is it? how fun would the eiffel tower be? or the black stiletto - classic and sexy at the same time! or hey, you want something a bit more traditional? they have classic monogram styles too...and they've even managed to make those fun and different!

and we can't overlook the gift-giving opportunity here....i squealed just a little when i saw the darling mama-to-be cards. what a great present for a newly pregnant girlfriend! as would these , which would be so much more fun to send out than those regular boring baby thank you notes.

this wouldn't be a post from me if there weren't a discount code floating around. today through monday, use code springthing2007 to get 20% off any order over $100. hey, i never said their stuff was cheap...but most personalized stationery isn't. and this is much cuter than your run-of-the-mill monogram dreariness, don't you agree?
