Whenever we wish to make an announcement, send an invitation or thank somebody properly, we want something that represents us. You can glue your picture on a folded card board but frankly, this DIY approach is not the most sophisticated one.
Designer Lindsay Stephenson of Penny People Designs takes the personalization concept to a higher level. You customize the Penny People from her card collection to look like you by changing the skin tone, hair style and hair color. The cards from this Toronto-based stationery studio display cute modern drawings.
For announcing a newborn, the Baby makes 3, 4+ cards looks adorable. You customize individually the mom, the dad and the baby. If you want to give something more special to your relatives, make a nice package with the note card or the correspondence card inside a picture frame.
Select a personalized gift tag or sticker from Penny People selection and create the ultimate gift wrap look. Depending on the size of the gift, a 2-inch sticker may look more proportional than the gift tag. A simple Kraft paper and a solid coordinated color paper will look best with any of the patterned gift tags and stickers.
Personalized cards make unique birthday gift
The martini girl can get a nice set of invites for her next party. If you do not find what you like, you can request a more custom look for an additional fee. At the top of the service chain, adding your own custom Penny person is possible for $150 CAD. What a great gift idea for the birthday of someone that has everything.
Personalized social stationery is not just for you; think of it as an extraordinary gift idea for your friends and family. For a housewarming party, why not bring amazing designer address labels for the host? At $10 a sheet of 30 labels, you can afford a few pages.
The minimum order quantity at Penny People Designs is low. For most cards and notes, you need to order just 12 invites. Wedding invitations has a minimum of 25 cards. Patterned address labels come in sheet of 30 labels. The personalized gift tags and stickers come in multiple of 20.
In an upcoming post, I will introduce fabulous Mom Calling Cards along with my tips on playdate invitations. You will see a few brands beside Penny People’s line.

I knew that moving to our new home was going to be very traumatic for the entire family, so I wanted to find a way to give everyone our new address. I searched the internet and found several good sites that offered real cute moving cards that could be personalized, Personalized Moving Announcements Cards, Custom Moving Announcements, Printed Moving Cards and Housewarming Invitations. I also wanted to order invitations for our housewarming party so all these sites had excellent ones. I ended up buying my moving announcements cards and housewarming invitations from Cards Shoppe and was very pleased. Both personalized cards turned out great!
