crazy for custom calling cards from rifle paper co.

custom 3

I’ve been in the market for calling cards for some time now (what can I say? I’m picky about paper products!) and while I’m usually a typography and white space kinda gal, I’m loving these custom illustrated calling cards from Rifle Paper Co. For a fee, illustrator Anna Bond will draw your portrait for your notes or calling cards, and can also hand-letter your text if you so choose, giving you a personalized set of stationery that is truly one-of-a-kind. Simply choose your portrait count (singles are $100), quantity and lettering style and color and in two to three weeks, everyone will be able to put your face to your name. Though pricier than some other options, these might make a fun gift for some of the organized friends in my life. – Sarah C.

Adorable idea. They have a different look than all the cartoonish avatars that are all over the place online, blogs, podcasts, gravatars, favicons. . . literally everywhere. Definitely see “portrait” more than cartoon.
