Happy San Francisco Pride Celebration 2014!

It’s almost SF Pride celebration! At PosePrints, we are all San Francisco Bay Area residents and pleased that such an amazing celebration happens here every year! This year marks the 44th anniversary of Pride Celebration, which is an amazing track record—San Francisco is home to the biggest LGBTQ gathering in the country. The theme this year is Color Our World with Pride and it will be a colorful, wonderful and meaningful weekend!

PosePrints is a unique stationery company because the designs on our cards are chosen by you—which means that your choice of who stands alongside you on your custom cards is up to you and your partner when creating invitations, thank-you notes and favors for weddings, parties and get-togethers. PosePrints’ custom stationery creates the opportunity to communicate your love and excitement to the whole world—openly and cheerfully! Caricature stationery makes it easy to send out high-quality invitations, save-the-dates, and shower invitations for all the special times in your life with ease.

Our Rainbow Card background is perfect for Pride Celebration—a bright, colorful, bold way to let everyone know that you’re headed to Pride and they’re welcome to come along. Send out a personalized invite to let people know about your fun Pre-Pride Parade shindig or where to go for the After-Party! As with all of our cards, you choose from our many caricature options, pick out accessories and props and then share your customized design either online or in print. Our E-Cards are free and you can send them to as many of your friends as you choose. We hope that this Pride Celebration weekend treats all of our readers well and that everyone revels in the parade, their pride for who they are and the LGBTQ community here in The Bay!

We have a great new card that Jen designed which is perfect for the World Cup as well as year-round personal stationery for kids and coaches’ gifts. All you need to do is choose the Soccer Card background design and then choose from all of our customizable caricature options to show everyone how excited you are about the game. Once you’re done, you can send it as an e-card or choose to have it printed. All the accessories in our caricature stationery let you make the decisions about how you look and what to wear (maybe your team’s colors!). With personalized stationery it’s easy to let everyone know when to come to your place to watch soccer, snack and catch up. We’ll be keeping our eyes open on Thursday to see the United States vs. Germany and we hope that whenever you choose to throw your party, PosePrints can help you get that game going with our Soccer Card!

Hello from the New PosePrints Intern!

Hello! I’m really excited to introduce myself as a new member of the PosePrints team! My name is Layla and I’m a San Francisco native finally returning from four years studying Art and Art History in upstate New York. I love to journal, sketchbook, and collage when I make art. In my spare time I like to go thrifting for vintage clothes, read and have tea with my friends. I worked as a program developer for Children’s Museum Education at the Tang Museum as well as with a stationery company in Brooklyn. Nothing beats San Francisco, though!

It feels great to be back and working with Jen and Denise and their custom stationery company. I love all the personalized stationery you can choose from on the site, and the adorable caricatures that work for any occasion. It’s lovely to be part of a company that sells products that I find so creative and clever! I’ve always been interested in stationery and paper goods, from designing my own invitations when I was little to making customized cards when I mail my friends letters, so to get to work for a company that makes unique stationery that has it’s own flair is going to be lots of fun! I’ll be contributing blog posts about what we have going on here and all our great products. You’ll see me here, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I’m looking forward to hearing from our customers and readers and getting to know all of you as the PosePrints Intern!

Hello from Layla!

Just Because Party Invitations

Would you ever send out invitations for a “just because” party or barbecue?  As much as I love to receive hard-copy holiday cards, Valentine’s Day cards, wedding Save-the-Dates and thank you notes, I LOVE the idea of receiving (and sending out) snail mail invitations for a “just because” party.  No one does that anymore, right?!  Friends and family expect to receive a Christmas Card or Baby Shower Invitation in the mail, but don’t necessarily expect to be invited to a pool party or family barbecue with a custom invitation.

What do you think?  Would you mail out cards for an event that doesn’t typically warrant hard-copy invitations?  I personally love the idea.  Seems like it would make the event seem that much more special — even if you’re sending out the custom cards last-minute.

I’m going to be sure to host a “just because” BBQ or party this summer.  With PosePrints invitations.  Hold me to it!  And let us know if you end up sending out snail mail invitations for a casual party this summer…we’d love to hear.
