I pride myself on giving good card. Here are my favorite sources so now you know all my secrets.
  1. 🌟Gold Standard🌟: Dempsey & Carroll
    88a56a8e 7d58 4c1e ab39 256b4d72c13a
    My bespoke favorite. You can order online but I suggest going to their store on the Upper East Side and spending some time pawing at their samples. There's such a thrill that comes with personalizing your own stationery--with thinking, for a moment, that you can be the type of person that sends handwritten notes to your pals just 'cause. Pictured, my choice: the #3 Correspondence Card in ecru with light blue type, border & matte envelope lining (dirty talk) https://www.dempseyandcarroll.com
  2. Greenwich Letterpress
    6a06c684 395f 4a42 84d0 2ce289eeae24
    I highly suggest getting a cup of coffee at Joe's on Waverly and then exploring this perfect little shop that will happily take all your perfect little money (you will spend it on beautiful and hilarious notecards and knickknacks). This is probably my favorite place for individual cards. Pictured: "Emily Gilmore Is My Spirit Animal" (I bought 5 of these). http://greenwichletterpress.com
  3. Sugar Paper
    Fcf61273 ef4e 4681 bc09 97295cd705ed
    My first true stationery love. I used to browse their old store in Century City after school, before picking up dinner at Clementine next door. Their current store at the Brentwood Country Mart is great but smaller and feels more cramped. Still, they make beautiful cards including these wonderfully thick, flat thank you cards, letterpress printed by hand. 6 for $20-24 usually. Worth it. Trust me. http://sugarpaper.com
  4. Rifle Paper Co.
    2813ca9e 760c 4254 91ee a569f7e21559
    Truly gorgeous and cheery card company out of Florida. I love their flower motif and holiday cards and country and city prints and really everything they sell. Pictured: "When Life Gives You Lemons..." https://riflepaperco.com

  6. Connor

    Irreverent and very chic (if very pricey) stationer. Pictured: Emoji writing tablet (also comes in notecards) http://www.barneys.com/barneys-new-york/home?prefn1=brand&pagetype=brand&prefv1=Connor
  7. Poketo
    B97fbee0 ac63 4ad5 8bd2 d2196689da72
    LA-based company with insanely charming prints and textiles and cards. This, pictured, is the most romantic card I've ever seen. http://www.poketo.com
  8. Red Camper
    E401447c 4847 43a9 943f 3c6c781c51a7

  10. John Derian
    E8a4de4a adf5 4480 8cee 6709e03d12c6
    I lived across from this iconic home decor and furniture shop for a year and it was a fatal temptress (my apartment would be all decoupage trays and imported objets if I had my druthers). They sell these postcards with antique prints that you can also buy at Bergdorfs and other stores that sell his trays http://www.johnderian.com/collections/postcards
  11. Blue Barnhouse
    6698ac4a 25c7 4de7 8aec f6d05ed64eec

  14. Sapling Press
    D80a3736 24bf 44ed 911c bca61b75d700
    I love this company out of Pittsburgh, known for its typed cards made of recyclable materials. I have a bunch of their cards but my favorite purchase might be this mini "Shit to Do" notepad https://www.etsy.com/shop/shopsaplingpress
  15. Ferme à papier
