I collected a massive stack of business cards while at Alt Summit this year (yay) and have been looking forward to sharing them with you here this week. Just like last year’s roundup, I tried to sort the cards into collections by theme and have included links to each of the cards so that you can discover more from each blogger/business if you’d like. Oh, and you can cick on each image to see the cards enlarged. xo Ez

One Good Thing: New Paper Goods at Quill & Fox

Have you seen the new collection of paper goods (greeting cards, postcards, lists, and posters) that was just recently introduced by Quill & Fox? I’m particularly smitten with the ‘Happy Happy Birthday’ and ‘Get Well Soon’ cards (shown here), but everything Yas creates is so ridiculously lovely that it’s difficult to choose. See more from Quill & Fox on their site, blog, and in their shop.
