[/caption]I'm a stationery lover. I've actually gotten gifts of stationery because the giver saw stationery and thought of me. Needless to say, I was tickled pea-green when I was given the opportunity to review some products from Paper Culture. I was sent several examples and several postcards to use for myself. I love them! The prints are magnificent, and the quality is wonderful. The cardstock is a nice thick quality and the colors are rich. I stamped on the card with the bird design you see to give with a gift, and it took the image perfectly. I was concerned that the ink with smear or bleed, but it did neither.[caption id="attachment_2878" align="alignright" width="300" caption="elegant images with brilliant colors"]
