Type and texture are a few of the primary characteristics that indicate the caliber of a message. However, type takes a subordinate stance to the paper's feeling for a number of reasons. For one, new technology has allowed for inexpensive printing of virtually any font style available. For this reason, elaborate type has lost the impressiveness of rarity. Thus, unique type may no longer impress as it did in the past. Also, fonts fall under the discretion of style, since they have only aesthetic appeal, and no physical. Furthermore, type may only impress the eyes, and provides no palpable quality. A paper, card or envelope's texture, on the other hand, remains a definitive quality of a letter's worth, and will remain so perennially. One can still impress his or her recipient by offering a more desirable, less ordinary paper with an appealing texture. For example, two letters of identical type and content were printed on standard and linen paper, it's not unreasonable to assume that one, even many years in the future, will choose the linen for its appealing feel and greater permanence. Because of the linen's physical desirableness, this would still apply even years after the given font lost its touch. Choose linen paper to show that you value the content of the message as well as the recipient. We also carry other styles such as metallic paper, bright paper, parchment and more!
