Gingiber Greeting Cards

Gingiber Greeting Cards

Gingiber’s new cards are so sweet! Stacie from Gingiber was inspired by her Midwestern roots, heirloom quilt patterns, and barnyard animals to create the collection, and the result is a tangle of colorful barnyard cuteness. The new line, which makes its debut at the National Stationery Show, is filled with quirky illustrations, hand lettering, pattern, and fantastic color palettes and will make a most excellent addition to the art prints and home goods in the Gingiber shop.

The cards will be available online in June and, if you’ll be attending the National Stationery Show this year, be sure to check out the Gingiber booth in the new #fresh section, a juried group of stationers specializing in cool, cutting-edge designs.
