About

Cartwheeling spirit meets pen and paper craft

When I was young, my aunt and I were pen pals. She taught me about artistic creativity and letter-writing, and I taught her how to do a proper cartwheel. To date, I have all her letters saved, and love the tangible personality they possess. There is no replacement for a hand written message or hand drawn card. Nor is there a replacement for the warm, welcoming feeling they incite.

Today, Penwheels embodies the joy that comes from creativity, connection, and vitality. My own personal recipe for health is to do a cartwheel a day, and well, to send greeting cards! They say you should never suppress a compliment; I think the same is true for human connection. Never suppress the urge to say "Thank you," to catch up, be present, or write a personalized note.

Penwheels' values:

Acts of Kindness - Simple acts of kindness can change the world for the positive. In fact, there are few things the world needs more than extra kindness! We believe in giving back in simple ways: Sending more cards, supporting local businesses, offering compliments and positivity.

The "Little" Things – Happiness can be found in even the smallest of things. At Penwheels, we still appreciate finding small joys in ways that are often overlooked: An imperfect doodle, a perfectly sharpened pencil, or sending the perfect greeting card.

Human Connection – Everyone deserves a touch of human connection. In our electronic world, it’s important not to lose sight of the tangible. Whether it’s seeing the face behind a local business, visiting your grandparents, or sending a hand-written note, there is a great significance to maintaining our human connectedness.

Environmental Stewardship – All Penwheels’ paper materials are sourced with a minimum 30% recycled content. More than half the paper/envelopes used are 100% fully recycled paper. We also use eco-friendly packaging supplies and recycle everything from paper scraps to printer ink.

Business for Good- Penwheels was started because we believe business can be more than just a transaction. It can be a shared experience, and ideally, one in which you contribute to something greater than yourself. That's why, for every order placed with Penwheels, a card is donated to a local charity.

I take great care to ensure your order is right the first time. However, things do happen and if for any reason you are unsatisfied or an item is lost in the mail, a replacement can be issued. Full refunds require conversation.

Custom orders: Unfortunately, exchanges or refunds are NOT available for custom products. This is due to the time required to specially create custom products. Tracking will be provided though to help ensure your item gets to you.

If you are ever unsatisfied, please contact me directly and we will collaborate to resolve the issue.
