About

In an age of text messages, emails, & tweets, give your loved ones the gift of time and attention and revive the art of Pen & Paper Greetings!

The inception of Pen & Paper Greetings developed out of my own personal need for Christmas cards to send to my Orthodox loved ones. For several years in a row, each Christmas would approach and I would search the internet for cards specific to Orthodoxy that conveyed the joy and beauty of the season. I wanted cards that were elegant and well made. Although I found some cards here and there, the selection was limited and fairly expensive. Retail cards did not suffice and often "secularized" the beauty of Christ's birth with "Happy Holidays" and "Ho-Ho-Ho's". I wanted something more.

I also began to notice there's not too many cards for other Orthodox special occasions that really suited my taste and that were readily available. So often I settle for EXPENSIVE retail generic cards for events like Orthodox weddings, baptisms, and Pascha, and I can rarely find an appropriate card for name days! So, I finally decided to make my own set of cards for my family. That evolved into creating some name day cards. Next, I moved on to handmade greeting card sets to give as gifts to other Orthodox friends. My friends and family loved them. I began to design and create the very things for which I was searching!

Since I started toying with the idea of selling my cards online, I've realized how much I enjoy making new designs and putting together an elegant card from start to finish. My style is simple with a love for a little bling and pops of vibrant colors now and then! I'm even excited to use some of my own photography that, until now, was always tucked away on my computer hard drive only to be admired on days when I would stroll down memory lane and browse through old photos.

I discovered that I enjoy this craft so much that I've begun to create other cards and card sets for any application, not just specific to Orthodoxy. While I'm determined to develop a wide selection of cards suitable for the Orthodox Christian Faith, I'm sure I'll enjoy designing just the "basics" as well!

If I'm so fortunate to have you as a customer one day, I hope the time and effort I put into each creation will be evident and that you'll enjoy giving something handcrafted and personal to your friends and loved ones. After all, who doesn't love receiving a lovely card that revives the old-fashioned practice of Pen & Paper Greetings?

Thank you for stopping by!
