2. Choose a color a color and design that reflects your personal style. If you exude understated elegance, perhaps some classic monogrammed ivory embossed folded notes are the ticket. However if you’re a lady (or lad!) who gravitates towards the bolder things in life, how about a brightly colored family crest with your initials or clever arrangement of giraffes and your full name a la Mrs. John L. Strong. The choice is yours!
3. Once you’ve selected your fabulous stationery, you need to decide on the quantity. If you use stationery sparingly, I’d advise you order a set of 50 notes and envelopes, which should last you a while. If you’re getting married or have near approaching needs to write a high volume of thank you notes, then I would advise you order a larger quantity of 100-250.
4. Consider ordering a set for yourself and your family. By this, I mean a set with just your initials (or name) and a set with your spouses and yours (combined initials or names) together. That way, you’re prepared for any stationery situation. Keep in mind though, ordering two sets isn’t a must, just a suggestion, dear readers!
5. After you’ve patiently waited for your notes to arrive, carefully house them in a lovely box in your bedroom or home office with pens and stamps to make letter writing a breeze.
