Dempsey and Carroll + Schumacher collaboration
You may already be familiar with Dempsey and Carroll: the cards they have are the definition of timeless elegance. The cards are on heavy weight paper which provides a quality feel of heft, and the designs range from the classic: Gold Laurel Wreath to Northeast themes with Sand Dollars, Whales reminiscent of Vineyard Vines, a doggie breed collection. The sets are timeless enough to be extremely versatile, such as the Fleur de Lis in Gold on Blue or the Golden beetle- perhaps foretelling luck for the gardener.
They have just added a new element to the classic designs though: envelopes lines with the wonderful designs from Schumacher. Right now, there are just the envelopes, and they are lined with a variety of 5 different prints from the Chenonceau collection, modern trellis, or the Chiang Mai Dragon. This is a beautiful collection that is certain to be a classic, and would be a welcome addition to any stationery set.
