Announcement    Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm a big fan of unplugging, looking up and sending a handwritten note. I think about connection often: connection to our inner self, each other and the planet. All packaging and shipping material is currently being phased into only what is suitable for composting. Cards and envelopes are made with recycled paper and I use paper made from the sustainable lokta plant whenever possible. Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Easy ways to save money on shipping:
1. Shipping one card is the same postage as shipping four cards.
2. Using promo code LOCAL, you pick up your cards directly from me.
3. Complimentary domestic shipping with any order of $30.

Also, you can enter into a monthly drawing to win a box set of your choice from my shop by sending me a message with your email address. I won't use your email for anything else without your permission.

About jhcards

Sales 639
On Etsy since 2015

Hobby Turned Passion.

jhcards are handcrafted with care and each card brings a cohesive design to the card and envelope.

People often ask me why I started a business making stationery. Initially, I made cards for my personal use and, of course, the process was fun. But the thing that kept me making them was the response people had when they received one. They said it felt extra special knowing it was made by hand. They also told me that the envelope details made it fun to open. One person desccribed it this way: "Opening a jhcard is like opening a present." Hearing that really stuck with me....receiving my card made them feel celebrated!

Now, on top of that, you have what's on the inside. What do people write in a card? Expressions of love and affection. Words of encouragement or gratitude. The fact that people are using my cards as vehicles to spread love and gratitude is exactly why I want to make as many as I possibly can. In a world of high-tech communication, a handwritten note can create a very powerful connection.

I am very interested in keeping a small footprint on the envirornment. My fold notes, envelopes and coverstock are made of recycled paper. My papers and envelope liners are sustainable, where possible, with paper made from the lokta plant. I have taken a closer look at my packaging and shipping and am currently phasing out everything that is not biodegradable.

I enjoy doing invitations as well as custom orders so please don't hesitate to ask for something that you don't see in the shop. Just send me a note through the Contact Shop Owner feature.

Thank you for your support and for shopping small!
