Crane & Co. wants pen pals

Kate Spade Snail Mail notecard detail

The Crane Insider, the blog of the venerable Crane & Co. paper company is looking for pen pals. Check out their blog post, Pen pals wanted, for the full details. They offer to write a letter back to anyone who writes them.

I would caution them about that promise, since I do not even make it myself anymore, but I am but one gal and not a company that employs quite a lot of people, and makes paper, to boot.

Oh yes, and the icing on the cake is that "every pen pal will be entered in a contest to win an assortment of Crane & Co. paper goodies." Hmm... I certainly don't need more pen pals, but I will most likely send a letter for that entry!

Pictured at the top of this post is some of my favorite Crane stationery, Snail mail correspondence cards, made in their Kate Spade line. I did a blog review of these cards way back in 2008.


  1. Thanks for the link! I may as well take advantage...

  2. This post is how I found you, actually I was searching images of snail mail, first came up a wax seal of "snail mail" then the Kate Spade stationery. After that, you are the only blog I really look forward to reading!

  3. Thanks for the offer! I love to write and I love Crane paper sounds like I win both ways!

  4. I've sent off my letter. I love Crane! I wonder what exactly we'll get back... a real handwriten card or letter? Something computer-printed on a Crane card? I can hardly wait! And a contest entry to boot - yipee!!

  5. I got an absolutely delightful handwritten card from J at Crane on the cute hot-pink Queen Bee notecards. What fun!
