We may use e-mail and texts for day-to-day communiqués, but somehow a virtual thank-you note still falls flat, which is why it’s essential to have a stash of notecards at your disposal—like these from Green Lake’s Balue/Co.
Created by graphic designer Lauren Wallace, who sells them (and her line of equally cool jewelry) online. The notecards are reproductions of Wallace’s original artwork, from ikat to polka dots and flowers, in chic, feminine colors printed on recycled paper with soy-based ink. From $3. balueandco.com
