Local Love

by Ruby on August 30, 2011

Vroman’s has gone crazy for local these days (I hope that you appreciated that I avoided the obvious pun there). We just launched our new Local Authors page on our website, planned the first event in our Local Authors series, and started stocking even more local merchandise. Among our new merchandise is an expanded Local Artist gift card section. The lovely ladies in our Stationery department have each picked a different artist’s cards to talk about! See what they have to say, and remember our Local Artists section next time you need a greeting card:

From Dolores:
Pup & PonyPup & Pony Press is a blend of old-fashioned images with a modern twist. The cards are great because they are blank on the inside, so you can write your own message. These cards are great for all ages. Everyone will like to send and receive these wonderful cards.


From Lisa:
Posh 8 Designs are absolutely adorable letterpress greeting cards! Each card is embossed with sassy sayings such as “She loves the sun and is the life of the party.” The cards are all different colors with matching envelopes and have super cute retro drawings on them. They are all blank inside, so you can personalize them for whichever occasion that you prefer. I’ve gotten them many times for friend’s birthdays and a couple times “just because!” Come check them out, you’ll love them!!

From Melissa:
Mr. Ferguson's Greeting CardsWould you like to send someone a smile in an envelope?  It’s how I describe the joy this card line brings to many of our customer’s faces when they see this card line. With gorgeous colors and beautiful words, if you’re lucky enough to receive one of these you’ll most likely run over to Vroman’s to grab one for a friend or loved one.  I’ve had a customer run over to me and show me a Mr. Ferguson card that she found to buy for herself and frame.  She immediately had a big smile on her face and thanked me for having these here.  So if you’d love to send someone a smile and bring a smile to their faces as well, stop by Vroman’s Stationery Department today!

From Helen:
Viz ArtThe Viz Art Ink cards are designed by artist Gregg Visintainer. Each design is hand drawn using pen and ink and averages 70 hours to create. Incorporated into the intricate designs are hidden symbols and words. Many of the designs are patriotic in nature and embody the meaning of being an American which is why I am so drawn to them. Looking closely at each one you will begin to notice the significance and beauty of his creation and find your own meanings hidden within the design.

From Robyn:
Addie Lynn DesignsAddie Lynn Designs is by far one of favorite cards lines at Vroman’s (and we have a lot!). Addie’s cards are colorful, happy, and great for any occasion. Each card is embellished with a dash of glitter to add some sparkle the already gorgeous designs. One of our best selling designs is the Happy Birthday Elephant and Happy Birthday Mermaid. At just $3.95 each, this work of art is a steal! Come pick yours out today!
