Engraved correspondence cards:
Whenever I need to write personal letters I never can find the right type of paper. We have monogrammed cards from our wedding which were designed by a graphic designer friend and are super cool, but aren't exactly appropriate when I'm writing a note that is just from me.
Solution? These thick gray cards from Chelsea Paper. The name can be done in this soothing harbor blue, or a sleek white (or the typical black). Too bad they cost nearly as much as a pair of Gucci loafers— $375 for 100 with envelopes.
