The designers at Peartreegreetings.com, an online personalized stationery company, are right in sync with the latest fashion and home furnishings style setters. At New York’s Fashion Week, for example, the mood ranged from conservative glamour in pared down designs to ladylike Bohemian in quirky pattern and color combinations – looks that are wearable by most ordinary women.
In home furnishings, too, there’s less flash and more craft. Decorators say patchwork quilts and hooked rugs aren’t going away, because right now we hunger for things that are handcrafted and tell a story. Shabby chic and green living trump ego and ostentation in today’s economy, and Pear Tree’s latest cards reflect those values in design, paper stock and price points.
For this holiday season, Pear Tree’s new designs let families and individuals express themselves with vibrant colors, hand drawn motifs, and mixed stripes, plaids and foliage. Peacock feathers and vintage patterns are as Boho as Bono, while weathered and aged looks and wood grain motifs speak of generations and continuity – qualities that always wear well. Printed on beautifully thick stock with an understated matte finish, they’re made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper, and are as green as they are beautiful.
“Pear Tree personalized holiday cards definitely ‘make the mantel’,” says Liwanag Q. Ojala, president of Pear Tree Greetings. “They’re unique, elegant and keep-worthy. Our customers know their cards won’t be seen ‘coming and going’ in the mail like so many off-the-shelf holiday cards. It’s custom greetings with compelling design made simple and affordable.”
Indeed, Pear Tree believes great design should be accessible. All of the cards are $1.25 or less, and most are $.84. Between those price points lie a seemingly infinite range of colors, designs, sizes and types of cards, including the time-honored story cards, photo collages, coloring cards for kids – who are encouraged to go outside the lines – unique folds, inserts and more.
It’s easy to navigate the site to select and design cards from the range of colors, patterns and fonts, and to choose coordinating return mail labels, gift tags, party invitations and other products. Customers simply write their greetings, upload any desired photos, and wait for the cards to arrive within a few business days.
In addition to Christmas cards and Hanukah cards and notes, Pear Tree covers the holidays all year long. Halloween is coming up fast, and Pear Trees cards and invitations are “frightfully” on theme.
