is bringing modern design to stationary and invitations.

No more Hallmark for me... I now know where to get cool cards and invitations printed.

Posterous super-blogger Patrick Au-Yeung's wife just started the company Paperculture (I love the name, love the brand), and as you can see they're creating some impressive, ground-breaking modern designs that are customizable. They describe themselves as being inspired by brands like Kate Spade, Design Within Reach, Mini, Marc Jacobs and Apple. That's a damn fine list.

I guess I'm just a sucker for modern, vector-based designs and great typography. And for designer-owned-and-operated businesses too.
