Grandma gave last year’s e-card a seriously frosty reception.
Warm her heart with a greeting from local letterpress company Two Paperdolls.
With photo-ready styles aplenty, all you have to do is pick a design and your favorite family shot. But for serious bragging rights, act quickly to commission a custom holiday card. The company’s clever designers can go all out with sparkly papers, crystal embellishments, and metallic ink. Or take a more demure stance with classic lettering and a simple motif.
No matter what, no one gets left in the cold.
Available at Pressed 55, The Piazza at Schmidts, 1050 North Hancock Street (267-455-0483); Two Paperdolls, 55 West Avenue, Wayne (610-293-4933 or twopaperdolls.com). For custom orders, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
