Handwritten notes—remember those? That satisfying first tear of the envelope and the smell of ink and the thoughtful, inside-joke-laden messages within? It’s been awhile, we know. But you now have a reason to get reacquainted with the postal service as soon as possible: the artful modern stationery from L.A.-based upstarts Well Received.
Featuring stark, understated motifs—marble and concrete textures, faux ostrich leather, the striking quill image above—their notecards are the perfect replacement for all the cornball Hallmark crap you find at the mall. Grab one of their fetching box sets, and you’ll be a regular Cyrano de Bergerac before you know.
