These Compendium Cards Celebrates the Written Word

Have you ever needed that perfect greeting to let someone know you’re sorry? What about trying to find a birthday card that wasn’t generic? If you’re looking for amusing cards that celebrates the love of the written word, the In Other Words… card line has got you covered.

In Other Words… is Compendium’s new line of greeting cards that combine uncommon wit with a big heart to mark all of life’s important occasions in a way that is both stylish and memorable. The cards all contain a similar design; where the message on each card takes center-stage and legibility is key.

“Each card has a clean, bright and simple design to highlight the wit, whimsy and generosity of the words,” says Compendium’s Trisha Thompson. “Inspired by the art of writing, we chose a font that balances legibility with character and borrows elements from classic typewriter letterforms. The addition of the color supports the tone of each card and playfully enhances the mood of the line.”

All of the cards are printed on Mohawk Via Vellum Warm White 100 Cover and are accompanied with an 80 text envelope to match. “The paper is as much a part of the card designs as what is being printed on them,” Thompson continues. “We selected Mohawk Via Vellum for its texture, warmth and feel…and it resembles the paper used in classic books.”
