There are a number of holidays that are listed on the calendar. Some of us will send a card for each and every holiday and some of us will choose only those that are most important to us. For many, holidays are a time for us to gather with our family and friends to celebrate that which is most dear to us. Whether you choose to celebrate every holiday in the calendar or only a few, each one will last a little longer in your life’s history with stationery made by Platypus Papers.
“The custom of sending greeting cards can be traced back to the ancient Chinese, who exchanged messages of good will to celebrate the New Year, and to the early Egyptians, who conveyed their greetings on papyrus scrolls. By the early 15th century, handmade paper greeting cards were being exchanged in Europe. The Germans are known to have printed New Year’s greetings from woodcuts as early as 1400, and handmade paper Valentines were being exchanged in various parts of Europe in the early to mid-15th century, with the oldest Valentine in existence being in the British Museum.”-Wikipedia Greeting Card
Since that time Holiday Cards have become a multi-billion dollar industry, but along the way, most have lost that personal touch.
Platypus Papers will work with you to create custom holiday or greeting cards for any festive occasion. Together we will make an even more memorable holiday for you and yours.
