877lrEdited_8949Sending and receiving Christmas cards remains a treasured holiday tradition in the Raleigh-Durham area. An e-mail greeting just doesn’t spark the same happiness that a hand-addressed envelope and personally signed card does here in the Triangle and beyond. The Oblique Pen calligraphy studio in Cary, NC, specializes in holiday products that add personal touches to the season’s weddings, parties, graduations, and anniversaries.

The Oblique Pen owner and artist Jessica Yee suggests people think about how they send Christmas and holiday messages. A beautiful card or note can increase the human connection between friends and families as we head to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and the New Year!

  • Personal greetings: Take the time to handwrite addresses and personally sign the cards to loved ones and treasured friends. Imagine how a card or letter is touched by one person’s hand and personalized with distinctive handwriting. It leaves the hands of the sender and arrives a few days later into the hands of someone across town, across the country or around the world. Paper is the classic medium that reconnects friends and family across the miles.
  • Professional connections: Make the human connection with business clients by sending them a hand-lettered holiday card. A signed, sealed and delivered card creates a special and timeless message. As with cards for family and friends, it starts with a warm handwritten note, moves into the hands of our USPS letter carrier, who places it into the client’s mailbox.
  • Holiday invitations: The holidays are full of activities, from Thanksgiving dinners, to football parties, through New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. It’s easy to pick up a pre-printed package of party invitations at the local store, but imagine the impact a hand-written invitation will make. Everyone who receives it will feel honored and will be certain to circle the party date on his or her calendar. These invitations can be done by The Oblique Pen, creating keepsakes that will be saved forever.

Not sure about the correct way to address envelopes or what to say in an invitation? The Oblique Pen can provide guidance in all aspects of etiquette and correspondence. Call or e-mail to find out how The Oblique Pen can add that personal touch to any project.
