Studioahimsa Handmade Prints & Stationary Review & Giveaway

If you are like me, you love sending out letters through snail mail. There's just nothing like getting an actual letter from someone who took the time to write everything out. Emails are so impersonal, but a handwritten note just brightens my day! I was so excited to meet Tazim, the co-owner of Studioahimsa, during Blogmania earlier this year. I took a look around her Etsy shop and was immediately impressed with not only the items listed, but the fact that all items are eco-friendly.

You can be sure each card was created with time and love. The illustrations and imprints are made from hand-carved lino and only vegetable-based, non-toxic inks are used! The paper used is 100% post-consumer recycled and sourced locally.

With backgrounds in art and design, Tazim and her partner, Greg, not only know what they are doing, but their passion for their work is obvious and shines through their amazing prints. It's not only impressive, but inspirational.


More Thoughts

I received a set of greeting cards to review, which were all packaged in recycled goods (an old book cover). The cards show a white lily looking beautiful and bright against the brown recycled paper. The inside of the card is blank, though you can let them know if you'd like something special written in them. What I really love about the cards I received is that they are not only made of a high quality paper, but they can be sent for any occasion. Send them as a Thank You card or just a note to someone; it doesn't matter!
I loved all my recycled thank you notes included with the order!
With the holidays nearing, Studioahimsa offers seasonal prints, such as the holly berries "Holly-Day" cards. Do you find yourself extremely busy and unable to find time to send out Christmas cards this year? That's quite alright. Just pick out your print, pick out a special message you'd like written on the inside of the card, and send along the recipient's address. Poof! They will be magically sent out without any work or worries. Now that's what I call customer service!
Be sure to check the store often because they will be adding tons of new prints and cards over the next few weeks! Plus, if you love their prints and cards, check out their awesome handcrafted jewelry shop, Two Bears One Heart!
