Fold-over notes 4.875” x 3.5” with one’s married name – e.g., Mrs. John Henry Smith – engraved, letterpressed or thermographed on page 1— i.e., the front of the note after it has been folded. Any of our typestyles may be used for thetypestyle on the informal as well as adding a motif, embossment, ink color or hand calligraphy for a little different look.
The informal note, ironically, is considered the note that should be used to respond to formal invitations and correspondence. Some of our clients prefer the smaller size of the informal note to the larger monogram note (and some even use a monogram on the informal note instead of their name).
Non-folded cards, 6.375” x 4.625”, or if requested, 4.375" by 3.875" that are typically used by men as thank you notes. When used by women, they are less formal than either monogram or informal notes. Conventionally these cards have one name centered at the top of the card, women may choose to use only their first name to complete the more casual appearance. However, should you desire a different look, you could use a monogram on the top of the card in the center or a corner, or perhaps having your name at the top and your address along the bottom is more to your liking. As with our other stationery, you can add a motif,embossment, ink color or hand calligraphy for a different look. To use a correspondence card as “house stationery” only your address or family crest would be engraved,thermographed, letterpressed or embossed across the top of the card.
