Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2008
Tiny Prints, Inc. (http://www.tinyprints.com), a leading online retailer of premium, personalized, social stationery, today announced the top design trends expected in stationery this year. The list, which was based upon the best-selling card from the holiday season, reflects the top 8 greats for 2008.
"Tiny Prints consistently works with our exclusive designers to create a robust product offering to suit a wide consumer base," said Laura Ching, VP of Merchandising. "And, every year we find that our best-selling holiday designs consistently reflect the top stationery trends for the year ahead."
Contrary to what some may expect, printed stationery; birthday invitations, Holiday cards, New Year cards and Valentine's Day cards are still as popular as ever. In fact, Tiny Prints first made a name for itself selling baby announcements, and today continues its success by offering personalized stationery for other major life events.
Tiny Prints expects the following trends in 2008:
Black is Back -- The top colors were vintage chic from classic brown to baby pink and blue, but the hottest color of the year was black.
One, Two, Many -- Say good-bye to making your children sit for a group photo. Now, everyone can look their individual best with multi-photo cards.
All About Us -- Remember stuffing your family highlights into your Christmas card? This season we created our Story Cards, a popular way to print text and photos directly onto the inside panel of folded card.
Matchy -- For a polished ensemble, unique design themes were easily coordinated with complementing thank you cards, address labels and gift tags.
All Grown up -- Steering clear of childish motifs and going for bold, sophisticated designs were big this year, especially for young families. Sorry Rudolph!
Spice it Up -- Everyone wanted to make their cards boldly shout, "I am not a bill!" when family and friends opened their mailboxes to find colored envelopes.
Coupledom -- More couples and newlyweds sent holiday photo cards featuring their favorite wedding pictures or highlights from another year of being together.
Picasso Jr. -- Popular with the photo demure and design savvy, many creative families choose to skip the photos altogether and scan in a favorite child's drawing or illustration in their place.
