Product Focus: Utility Card

12/6/2019

Originally launched in 2013, our Utility Card is a word search puzzle that includes over 100 salutations. It is our attempt at a minimalist greeting card - the last one you'll ever need.

We wanted to create something practical - that would really get used - that was also fun to give and receive. As of our last count, we've sold over 30,000 of these babies and couldn't be prouder of the feedback we've received from enthusiastic snail mailers.

Classic sentiments include everything from "Congratulations" to "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Hanukkah" to "Get Well Soon" as well as favorite phrases like "Way To Go," "Be Mine," "Mazel Tov," and "I Love You." Don't worry if you aren't a puzzler, we include a cheat-sheet to help you find your perfect message. 

Our Utility Card is letterpress printed on extra thick tree-free paper that uses cotton fiber waste from textile manufacturing. Each card comes with a 100% post-consumer recycled content kraft paper envelope and cheat-sheet. Even the plant-based packaging is compostable.                 

The steady production of these cards has allowed us to create a nice flow of work for our California-based letterpress printer and for us to explore the possibilities of sustainable materials. 

Most of all, it has reminded us how much we love to send and receive mail. It is such a treat to find an unexpected note from a friend in our own mail box. We hope to play a small part in keeping post alive. 

Find Utility Cards for sale now in English and French (Spanish is sold out, lo siento!) in single cards or in five pack sets. All orders received by December 17 will arrive before Christmas Eve.

Happy Holidays, friends!
