All. the. neon.
Or at least it felt that way.
So very neon: these cute tiny “Merci” cards with little craft envelopes. These are too small to mail in the US, but that didn’t stop me.
They’re made by Belgian printer le typographe. I can’t wait for my next trip to Brussels to check them out in person. Mr. P’s already been warned.
I swooned (almost) over these letterpress cards from Nineteen Seventy-Three.
Seriously. I scooped up every one available at Article. They are high quality and the colors are very vivid in person.
Since one can never have too many notecards or washi tape, I bought this pad of notecards, also by le typographe. They are heavy duty stock with a neon pink paperclip printed in the corner.
The neon orange washi is by Mark’s Inc.
Okay, so not everything was neon. I couldn’t resist this laser cut card with an Irish postbox. Love.
And finally, a birthday card with an Irish greeting, which I’ve already earmarked for a friend of ours.
Pro trip: if you see cards you like in Dublin, buy them. Several items I saw a couple weeks later when I was paper shopping in London and they were much more expensive (even before accounting for the awful exchange rate with the sterling). Dublin had really reasonable prices!
Mr. P stood by as I said “excuse me, I’m going to buy all the cards.”
Mr. P and I traveled to Dublin for a long weekend in March. Learn how to plan a trip to Europe for the weekend (even coming all the way from California) here.
