Here at Felt & Wire, we love fine paper and we’re big fans of beautiful social stationery. We’re admittedly paper-obsessed.  Add irresistible design and stunning pops of color and, well, we’re smitten.

We recently learned that one of our very favorite fine card and stationery companies, J. Falkner, was rolling out a new product line at The National Stationery Show this week in New York City.  Hot off the press, here’s a sneak peek at J. Falkner’s new “Perfect Little Notes” line. It is simply stunning, and quite perfect indeed.
