It's spring in Chicago and I got these lovely tulips out of our yard. One of my favorite flowers, and also featured on one of my Thanks a Bunch thank you cards. Perfect for Mothers Day or a thank you for a gift or gesture!
Working on a fun new interactive card for the holidays! Stay tuned... But if you can't wait and have a hankering for Christmas trees, this geometric tree holiday card is one of my favorites.

About

Paper Heart Dispatch provides whimsical greeting cards, art & invitations to communicate with paper.

Providing playful, whimsical, and illustrative items on paper. Because people aren’t digital, so why should we communicate that way?

I love paper. I always have. From a background in drawing, illustration, and printmaking, to a love of making cards and invitations to connect people through paper sentiments, Paper Heart Dispatch was born as a way to make our feelings physical in a digital world.

When you take a moment to write down your thoughts, send it through snail mail, and then the other person gets to touch the same paper you did--tear open the envelope, unfold the card, touch the surface and feel the ink of the pen on the paper... that's a real connection that takes effort, time, and shows feeling. Who gets real mail anymore that isn't junk mail or catalogs, mail they truly are excited or interested to open? When I send a card to a friend or family member for their birthday or as a thank you, they always seem blown away and really touched, and I feel that such a small gesture has a large benefit in my relationships. It only takes a few thoughtful minutes in the day.

I hand-create nearly all of my designs, starting with pencil on paper, before I digitize and finish my cards on the computer and print them in-house. There's real love and playfulness that goes into these, and being a small business, I get to communicate with each and every one of you and create your order by hand. That connection makes my business meaningful to me and I put my heart into every order.

Connecting in the real world outside of our digital devices is something I want to promote in this increasingly electronic world. So send out your heart posthaste!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to do custom orders. Just contact me with your ideas and we can discuss over email. I can set up a custom order just for you.

When will I receive my package?

I can usually send out orders within 2 days, but remember to add in shipping time for the package to reach you. Usually in the US, it'll take 2-3 additional days before your package reaches your mailbox. Since there is no mail pickup on Sundays or holidays, those are additional days that may delay your package. I'll do my best to get it to you quickly if in a rush, but please give a minimum of 4 days total from your order for the package to reach you. Thank you!
