If you’re like me, you never have stationery handy when you need it, so you end up running to the store the day of a party to try and grab something that doesn’t say, “I forgot…again.” This inherent procrastination makes this time of year a little daunting. Cards need to be sent out for graduations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and more events on the calendar. With all of these celebrations, how do you avoid giving everyone the same thing? Now there is an innovative solution that will add some flare to cookie cutter cards.
HBDesigns’ Fabrinery puts a new spin on snail mail. By combining a personalized message and a fabric of your choice, you create a unique letter that lets someone know you care. It works pretty simply—choose your material and a script equipped with fill in the blank spaces. This makes it quicker and easier to scribble out a message. You can even request to use old clothing for the backing. (Maybe it’s time for me to get some use out of those old pajamas.) Plus, you don’t need to pay any extra postage!
Sometimes you hardly hear from your kids if you send them to summer camps. I know that the last thing on my mind at camp was sending my mother a letter. Maybe, if I would have had something as cute as the HBDesigns cards (for $19.99, you get a set of six in cotton-covered stationery), I actually might have taken the time to write a little note home. At least now I have another option to stock up my supplies so that I’m not running to the store for my next party.
