Last summer, my colleague Jared noted that stationer Dempsey & Carroll
was stepping in when Mrs. John L. Strong closed up shop
. It seems that despite the ubiquity of electronic communication devices, there are many who still put pen to paper. If you are one of these people, or have resolved to be in the new year, you should know that Dempsey & Carroll is offering its annual January Correspondence Card Sale
, with its greatest price reductions of the year and never-before-offered engraving options.
Quantities of 100 personalized and engraved Correspondence Cards, in Dempsey & Carroll's most popular size, are on sale for $225, a 40% savings on its regular price of $375. The sale price includes a new name plate, if desired. Customers may choose from four typestyles, five ink colors, and white or ecru card stock. Borders, motifs, return address plates, return address engraving, envelope liners, and other options are available for an additional charge. New for the sale this year is the Deluxe (4-ply) and Opulent (6-ply) stock, also for an additional charge.
But maybe you're not quite ready for a hand-written note. Why not start on Valentine's Day? Dempsey & Carroll is a very traditional company, but for the first time they are offering modern designs for Valentine's Day
(see the gallery, below). What a nice way to send, or receive, a love note.
