National Handwriting Day

Did you know that Saturday, January 23rd is 
National Handwriting Day?

"January 23rd, 2016 marks the 39th anniversary of National Handwriting Day.  Established in 1977 on the birthday of perhaps one of America's most celebrated scribes, John Hancock known for his bold signature on the Declaration of Independence – National Handwriting Day was created to acknowledge the history and influence of penmanship.  The Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) sponsors National Handwriting Day offering insight and inspiration to honor the writing holiday."

In order to celebrate the occasion I am sharing
with you a few of my favorite 
note card designers.
The Crane & Company 
bee notecard is my go to standard
for personal notes.
I also have a monogrammed set of ivory
crane notecards for business.
Anna Griffin also does a 
wonderful line of stationery.
These Imperial Notecards are beautiful
and come with lined envelopes.
LB Originals has a ton of cute
monogrammed notecards
along with lots of other stationery
on her Preppy Paper Girl Etsy site.

Emily McCarthy's multi cheetah
note cards are adorable.
The spot cheetah pattern
is a unique design created by
Ms. McCarthy.
The notecards can be found along
with many other
unique paper & entertaining products
in her shop on her website.

  1. Those are pretty! I've recently begun pen palling again and just love to handwrite (and received handwritten) letters! Thanks for sharing some of your favorites with us!


  2. I enjoy making my own cards. Handwritten notes are so much more personal and appreciated for the effort.
