When it comes to stationery these days, more and more people are opting for personalized stationery. This, as well as items such as personalized pens, personalized letter heads, invitations, thank you notes, flat notes and even index cards can all have a profound effect with the impact that they make.
Take the following example. You are expectantly opening up your mail box to fish out an invite to your best friend’s daughter’s birthday party, so that you can take your daughter for a fun time. Would you like to see an invitation that looks like a utility bill or would you like to see a bright pink colored invite, with lots of doll pictures, glitter and a great message that asks for your daughter’s presence. We are guessing that you would obviously prefer the second option. The same goes for every other stationery items as well. A personalized stationery item can be a hundred times more effective than a non-personalized item.
What kind of personalized stationery can you buy?
Any item that is classified as a stationery item can be personalized. Pens, pencils, pen cases, index cards, flat notes, note pads, letterheads, business cards, invitations, thank you notes, memos, note cards, announcement cards and even corporate stationery items, can all be personalized.
They can be personalized with custom text, custom colors, custom designs, custom monograms, custom graphics and even custom pictures.
Where to order personalized stationery?
You can approach a professional offline publisher or typesetter for your personalization needs. However, chances are that he or she will charge you and arm and a leg as they don’t usually deal with small orders. If you need a personalized stationery order where you are trying to get just about a dozen thank you notes or invitation cards, the online marketplace is the place for you to visit.
Open up a popular search engine like Google or Bing and type in “personalized stationery” or “personalized stationary”. The latter is a misspelling that has become commonly used these days, sometimes in preference to the correct spelling. If you want something very specific like personalized flat notes, just narrow down your search to exactly that. There are so many results that the search engines will serve you up results that will allow you to find a product that you will immediately like.
Ordering stationery items in the mail vs. printing them
Now, there are two ways in which you can go about getting your personalized stationery and other items items. If you are ordering pens or pencils or pen cases, you will obviously have to receive such products in the mail. However, when it comes to stationery items that can be replicated electronically, you will have the option to print it out yourself, by just downloading a template that you might have designed, using a site’s help.
Of course, the best personalization sites will take your order and then print stationery using professional printers and high quality paper, and then mail you physical copies. These are usually a lot more expensive than the other option where you just print them out in your home printer, but both methods have their value. You can use the professional personalized stationery sites to create great looking wedding invitations while you can use your own personalized and printed stationery for fun occasions like a kid’s birthday party, where an amateur looking card is actually more fun and effective than a glossy store bought invitation card.
