As many of you know from previous blog posts that May is always our best mail month of the year!  We literally receive a huge bulk load of amazing mail containing sweet letters and booth invitations to the National Stationery Show in NYC.  When Joshua saw the situation on my desk last week he shot this little video above. – You must click play!

Urbanic Mail

I opened a bunch of the mail on Snapchat this year for everyone to see & also shot a few pics above of some of the beautiful hand lettering on the envelopes for you to see.  Stay tuned, next week I’ll be posting some photos from the show!

As many of you already know, it has become a tradition for us to send out a little New Year’s print each year to some of the designers and clients we work with at Urbanic. Our goal is to make it an inspiration board-worthy print with a positive outlook going into the new year.  (if you’re curious, you can click to see some of our cards from years’ past – 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015 )

This year we were inspired by and old fashioned ice cream parlor vibe. We letterpressed our design onto some creamy soft cotton paper & paired it up with a color seam envelope.  As always, we printed a small batch of extras just for you if you’d like one! These little prints are 5×7 and a limited edition, so they are on a first come first serve basis. We’re sending them out complimentary to our followers, just send $2.50 which are our costs on the print + the postage, we’ll put one in the mail your way!   *click here to snag yours*

please note the following…

* these are a limited edition so it’s first come first serve.  1 per customer please
* .50 is included in the price for US residents. If you are international and you would like us to send you one, please email us.

Happy Friday everyone! We are getting ready to take off to NYC for the National Stationery Show this weekend. It’s definitely a favorite time of year for us paper people over here because we get flooded with an avalanche of good mail!

This year we have a special treat for you, a little video of the opening of some of the packages. We’ll be posting another one later on today of the opening of some mail as well, so check back for the update.  We SO wish we could show you all of them – so many great ones!!

Post No 875 // Urbanic Paper


Since we didn’t get a chance to send out holiday cards this year, we decided it would be fun to send out Valentine’s cards to our friends and family instead.  A close friend of ours, (and amazing photographer) Joey Bradshaw, captured the 4 of us Woollens on one of our very favorite family outings together – an ice cream Float date!

2014_Valentines_UrbanicI really love how these came out, and admittedly enjoyed breaking the ‘lovers exclusive’ rules of Valentines Day. Sending out Family Valentine’s love to the people in our lives is not only completely awesome – but is also a great opportunity to surprise people with unexpected mail.  This definitely doesn’t mean that Joshua and I won’t be celebrating in our own special way, but why not spread the love? – There is plenty to go around!
