Evan Harris Birds of a Letter envelope

Evan Harris Birds of a Letter envelope

This is the envelope of the letter I sent in response to the artistic letter featured in yesterday's post. A pretty envelope someone else drew, gussified with some stickles glitter glue, is just about the best I can do to try to offer some merit of visual artistic value.

The stationery is Evan Harris Birds of a Letter from Dark Horse stationery. I didn't take a photo myself of the inner pages, which have FANTASTIC designs plus the added perk of a white writing space (all the better for showing off those pretty fountain pen ink colors, my dear), but I lifted the promo photo from the Dark Horse site just so I should share the pretty goodness:

  1. Wow, I really like that envelope. Pretty border. And the stamp goes so well with it!

  2. These are definitely some of my favorite Dark Horse stationery envelopes. I love the Poe stamp, too! I bought a lot of sheets, knowing that they're likely to sell out, with the rate increase coming right up.

  4. "...with the rate increase coming right up."

    Mmmm, you bought lots of Poe stamps, at the present stamp price? But won't you have to add the additional-postage stamps, to use them... after the increase?

    And please, would you remind us, when does this increase take effect? May, but when, please?

  5. You bet I'll have to add additional postage... no problemo. I like using lots of stamps, and I have hundreds of old stamps in small denominations. (And you can still buy new self-adhesive stamps in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 cent values.) I have soooo many stamps that it's fun to combine them.

    First-class letters go up to 44 cents on May 11. All the other rates go up also (postcard, international letter, extra ounce, etc).

  6. Wow, that is adorable stationery. I love stuff like that but I rarely use it because I like to write long, rambling letters. I guess I could start on those and add pages but they they don't match. I'm a neurotic letter writer. :)

  7. Oh, I often add extra pages! I use a whole different set of fountain-pen friendly papers for additional pages. Many of them are conveniently right about the same size, so they fold into the envelope nicely.
