About

I believe in the power of a handwritten note, of a perfectly-chosen gift. I believe in keepsakes & memories, getting in touch & keeping love close.

Hello, it's great to see you! You've come to just the right place. People might describe you as sentimental, thoughtful, a bit of an old soul. You give great advice, have impeccable style, and are kind and deliberate with your words. You believe in celebrations both large and small, and in finding ways to make the little moments special. You like to surprise the ones you love with a treasure picked out just for them, and what better than custom note cards printed with their name in their favorite color.

I'm graphic designer Megan Rose, and the products I design for Silhouette Blue are the perfect way to say "I'm thinking of you". Whether you're shopping for a thoughtful gift, or notecards to perfectly reflect your own personality, Silhouette Blue Stationery is here to add joy and style to your correspondence. With my unique balance of timeless and on-trend designs, I specialize in crisp, bold illustrations paired with a wide array of customizations. I pride myself on attention to detail, quick turnaround time, and a personal shopping experience.

Silhouette Blue was launched in May 2006 as my senior design project at Loyola University Chicago. What started as a line of 30 greeting cards is now a well-edited collection of custom stationery, personalized gifts, and wedding invitations. All of my products are designed, printed, assembled and packaged by hand in my studio, with love, just for you. When I'm not designing you can find me paintbrush in hand, turning a 1913 bungalow into our cozy home with my husband Kevin, in Forest Park, Illinois.

Here's what some of my customers have to say:

• "Wow...just wow. I was incredibly impressed by the quality of these cards as well as the extraordinary professionalism exhibited by Megan. She was very easy to get in touch with and shipped out the cards quite quickly! Everything about the cards themselves and the experience in getting the cards was absolutely wonderful!!!" - Taygan, Providence, RI

• "I love sending cards to friends and family and these exceeded my expectations. Beautiful, dainty and very well made. Thank you!" - Andrea, Toronto, ON

• "I love these cards! I've used them as thank you's for my wedding, I've received so many compliments on them :)" - Angela, Philadelphia, PA

• "Lovely cards as usual! I always gift these cards to the brides whose weddings I have been involved in as a first anniversary gift! They are great because they are customizable color-wise!" - Lauren, Cincinnati, OH

Frequently asked questions

Address Stamps - 3-5 business days

If your order is time sensitive, let me know what your deadline is and I'll do my best to accommodate.

What are your Christmas ordering deadlines?

The following dates are coordinated with the USPS deadlines for Christmas Eve delivery within the United States. While I guarantee that your order will be shipped before the deadline, I unfortunately can not guarantee the delivery date of your package.

RETURN ADDRESS STAMPS:
Tuesday, December 13th, 11:00 PM CST

PAPER GOODS (stationery, notepads, greeting cards, art prints):

Will I receive a proof before my order is fulfilled?

Digital proofs before printing are sent upon request only. You will not receive a proof automatically.

You can leave me a note with your proof request at checkout, in the same area you leave your personalization. Production may begin soon after you purchase, so please request your proof with your order or immediately after! Once production begins I can still send a proof, but unfortunately we will not be able to make any changes.

Proofs will be sent via Etsy Convo (Etsy's internal messaging system) no later than 48 business hours after you place your order. Please note that if you request a proof, my current turnaround time begins after the proof is approved.

Will my order be accurate if I do not request a proof?

Absolutely! I will copy and paste your personalization directly from your order. So as long as your spelling and capitalization are accurate, your personalized product will be accurate.

What kind of printing and paper do you use?

Silhouette Blue products are digitally flat printed with archival inks. Notecard paper is an 88lb cover bristol - heavier than standard cover weight paper, slightly textured and 25% cotton. Notepad paper is a 60lb text weight - beautifully soft and smooth. Envelopes are heavyweight with a pointed flap (white/cream envelopes have a square flap).

Will a logo be printed on my product?

The Silhouette Blue logo is printed on the back of all personalized notecards, and on the chipboard backing of notepads. If you would like your personalized product to be logo free please let me know.

Can I send my order as a gift straight to the recipient?

Yes! Let me know if your order is a gift and I can include a note from you in the package. Your receipt will also have the pricing information removed.

See my shop to add on Silhouette Blue Signature Gift Wrap service!

RETURN ADDRESS STAMPS: Packaged in a linen drawstring pouch.
