I first learned about Smock when I was shopping for wedding invitations. I ended up using them for my programs, and I was so happy with the result. One of the amazing things about Smock is all of the fonts they offer, some of which were actually created from calligrapher’s penmanship. It’s an amazing option for the times when custom calligraphy isn’t an option. Some of my favorite examples from their website are below.
What I realized later is that Smock actually has the most delightful line of greeting cards.
Their cards showcase their beautiful calligraphy styles and fonts, but also feature elements like a luxurious (and sustainable!) bamboo paper, letterpress, and and just-right foil stamping. They have both individual cards and boxed sets on their site, and have a ton of options to match the personal style of their customer. I think the key element that ties the depth of product together is a classic sensibility and a nod to tradition. All of this makes sense give that Amy Graham Stigler, the company’s founder, was an art historian with years at museums under her belt before she started Smock.
