While out looking for a Valentines day card for my loved one the other day, I soon realised that I wasn't going to find what I had in mind in a high street card shop. I had this problem at Christmas too, all the cards in the shops are so tacky and I begrudge giving anyone a card that I don't really like myself, even if they themselves aren't into vintage style.
I think this extends to lots of areas of the vintage lifestyle; wanting to find something in the style you like, that you can give to others and hope they will appreciate too. Whether Valentines, Christmas, birthday cards or invitations, don't despair, the internet is a wonderful place! You can find anything you want, including a vast selection of beautiful vintage inspired stationery, whatever your occasion. Here are a few of my picks:
I love this simple Typography card, that can be made to your own specifications, whether an invitation or announcement. Available here
If your getting married and want elegant and classic invitations, with vintage style floral prints, then there is a lovely collection here at Bride and Groom in the vintage section
Pennychoo have a fab selection of 50s inspired printed cards. These jazz cats are my absolute favourite:
This beautiful blank card is printed with an image from vintage magazines. From Bex Shaw on Etsy
Or of course, you could buy Vintage. There are amazing selections of vintage cards on both ebay and etsy, and you can buy whole job lots as well as individual cards. Here are a few I found on etsy:
