Review & Giveaway : Night Owl Paper Goods...Sustainable, Eco-Friendly Wood & Letterpress Cards


Night Owl Paper Goods
is an Alabama based stationary company that specializes in handmade letter press cards and beautiful eco-friendly wood cards, they also clearly specialize in cute! After browsing their online selection thoroughly, I can honestly say that there isn't a single design that I dislike. The company seems to take great care in creating a high quality products and printing only the most charming of designs. I think I must have browsed the site at least 20 times in the past few weeks, I seriously cannot get enough of the cute!

Night Owl Paper Goods very kindly furnished me with some beauuuutiful cards. Take a lil' peak:




How mind blowingly cute are those? I mean, even though I think these pictures turned out alright, they simply do not do justice how lovely these cards are. I actually took these pictures over and over trying to capture the prettiness, but the pictures never looked half as good as the real thing!

The wood cards are sturdy, beautifully printed and have a lovely golden wood grain (there are very few things I love more than wood grain). The wood Night Owl uses is sustainably harvested so the company is very eco-friendly as well. Cute, wood grain and sustainable? Oh, how I love you Night Owl! The letterpress cards are equally stunning with their flawless printing, thick cotton card stock (such a lovely texture) and timelessly styled designs.

A couple of my other favorites from the site:

mr. water otter wood card, $5


lamb party hat gift card/place card, $2.50

foxy fungi print, $16


My back to school picks:


owl flowering branch tote, $28


2011 critter calendar, $24


howdy y'owl jotter, $8

Oh how I love, love, love these cards. I know you're probably in love with them too by now so Night Owl Paper Goods is sharing the love with you....
