These 5" x 7" cards are more like postcards than traditional bi-fold cards. This enables the recipient to display the card flat on a cubicle wall, refrigerator door, bulletin board, or anywhere a small, flat piece of art with a message is appreciated. They can also be framed, as they are printed on high-quality, heavy premium matte paper. Envelopes are bright, vibrant colors that compliment the colors of the individual card. In the age of digital communication, it's refreshing to get an art gift with a personal message hand-written on the back. Encouraging and quite cherishable.
