This is great for people who tend to forget birthdays (me!). It's so easy to glance at the upcoming month and get prepared!

About

About Modern Printed Matter

Hello! I'm a self-taught graphic designer based in Rhode Island. I launched my first card line as Modern Printed Matter nearly 10 years ago. Initially it was a creative outlet from my Environmental Engineering career, but it quickly become my obsession. Less than a year after it’s launch, I quit my day job to run Modern Printed Matter full-time. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I grew up on an island off the coast of Maine, and my trips back home are a constant source of natural inspiration for me. When I’m not chasing around my two little boys, I’m jotting down card ideas, phrases that make me laugh, and taking pictures of things that inspire me. It’s a busy life, so it’s important to find the humor in the chaos. The sentiment of my cards reflects this - sweet and sometimes snarky.

My mission is to create little works of art that will make someone smile and want to hang on to rather than throw away. I hope to help keep the tradition of handwritten correspondence alive, and to spread a little laughter around with it. Many thanks to all of my lovely customers that make it possible for me to continue doing what I love!

Anna :)

Frequently asked questions

Why is your individual card shipping rate not the cost of a postage stamp?

All greeting cards are shipped at a first class package rate so that I can provide tracking. Tracking is important for proof of delivery, and to let customers know when to expect their package. The shipping rate also includes the cost of our recycled chipboard mailers that keep your card from getting bent or damaged during shipping. The good news is that the first class package rate stays the same up to 4 ounces, so you can add more cards to your cart and save on shipping!

Why is the inside greeting printed on the back of your cards?

In addition to selling cards directly to lovely Etsy customers like you, I also have many small shops that carry my cards. The inside greeting is printed on the back of the card to prevent store customers from removing (and damaging) the packaging in order to read the inside of the card. Our logo and recycled info is also printed on the back of the card.

Wholesale availability

Yes, I love wholesale orders! Please visit the wholesale page on my main website: modernprintedmatter.com

Custom and personalized orders

Depending on my current schedule, I do take on custom orders for art prints and pieces ordered in bulk. Contact me with your project for more info. Please note that I do not customize single greeting card orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We currently do not offer gift wrapping, but we can enclose a gift message for orders shipping directly to the recipient. Please leave me a note at checkout with your request.
