Today I am so excited to introduce you to Tales of a Peanut‘s first “stocked” item: Inspire Cards.
The cards are printed on high quality paper which is named “Classic Felt” and are printed by a professional printer. The feel of these cards is so luxurious! They are thick, and the perfect weight (130#) and texture for writing notes. The paper is also acid free, archival, made of 30% recycled content, and Forest Stewardship Council certified.
The cards measure 5.5″ wide and are 4″ tall when folded.
Cards have the Tales of a Peanut site address on the back, as well as the small Inspire
The back story to these cards is one of my favorite things about them. I have a cousin, Mary Leigh, who has decided to join Cru full time in the fall. She’s currently at new staff training in Colorado, and will head to Orlando as soon as she raises her support.
If you don’t know about Cru, they are an organization who seeks to spread the name of Jesus throughout the world. I mostly knew about them from their organizations on college campuses and the one that I attended while in college. But they actually have tons of different programs and work all over the world.
The staff for Cru raises 100% of their funding for their salary, living expenses, insurance, etc. This is to keep the overhead of Cru down and allow the organization to focus the majority of their money on their missions.
I wanted to pair with Mary Leigh and find some way to support her and thus the idea of these cards
In designing these cards, I searched through my Bible and memory and quote books and then worked to bring five of my favorite verses, representing different sentiments to life through typography. These cards would be perfect for every day notes to friends, thank you’s, congratulations, sympathy, anything!
We hope that you will join with us and support Mary Leigh and her work. We will be keeping a certain number of card sets in stock that will be available for shipping or pick up immediately. As needed, we will replenish stocks with the idea to have an idea that is available immediately for shipping as opposed to waiting on the time that creating custom stationery requires.
