In the days of effortless email, physical mail carries added weight consisting mostly of precious jewels and children mailing themselves to Disneyland. Appreciate authentic postage with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of greeting cards, invitations, and more from Stonehouse Collection. Orders must be placed online, though purchased products can be picked up from the store in Scottsdale or shipped for an additional fee.
Stonehouse Collection curates an online trove of creative designs meant to help families, businesses, and friends keep in touch. Head cardographer Matt Kersten, who is constructed from cardstock, draws on the humorous artwork of his father and uncle’s venerable Kersten Brothers Studios design business, stocking heaps of cards illustrated by the family.
Honor the most matronly of holidays with a playful Mother’s Day card ($0.99), or look ahead to monster season with a Halloween missive ($0.99). A golf-themed party invitation summons golf and business buddies to the green with a punny heading and the scent of pulverized Titleists ($6.99/12 cards and 13 envelopes). Those bound for the aisle can grace their invitations with personalized wedding address labels available in a multitude of fonts ($9.99/90 labels), and business owners can touch base with customers through a thoughtful business thank-you card ($6.99/10 cards). Stonehouse Collection's paper mavens are willing to personalize any item, adding logos, signatures, or 30" rims.
