Friday Linkfest!

Here are some links to keep you entertained over the weekend (or the next few hours if you read really fast like I do)!


*The beautiful typography of Marian Bantjes (sorry - I cannot recall which great blog I found this on)

*Guess which famous movies are portrayed in these charming "stationery movies" (fyi - these are what most of my co-workers refer to as "office supplies". When you talk "stationery" at finestationery.com, we generally think thank you notes, invitations, announcements, etc.)

*The flickr photostream for calligraphy


*Annie Vought's cut paper typography. This work astonishes me. I have spent hours trying to cut stencils and ended up with cut up fingertips and a pretty rough looking final product.

*Local Font Foundry House Industries (look for them in an upcoming feature)


*The breathtaking & delicate work of recent grad Emily Morris at Design*Sponge.


*Colorful paper art by Jen Stark (via design for mankind)

If those links don't keep you busy for long, please take the time to leave your feedback. What features on The Finer Things are you enjoying the most? Is there anything about the blog you would change? What kinds of features would you be most interested in? If you've shopped at finestationery.com, let me know about your experience! Or, better yet, you can rate your experience using our ratings and reviews feature! If you can't remember the item number, just email me at kdriscoll@finestationery.com with what the product looked like (and the vendor, if you have the info) and I'll help you locate the item you purchased so that you can review it! Even if you haven't purchased an item from us, you can still rate the products. We are all about our customers, visitors and the stationery community and we want to hear from you! Anyone who emails me or posts a comment by 3pm EST Monday (10/29) will be entered into a randomized drawing for 2 sets of 10 Bubbles n' Bows Thank You notes (which are metallic and feature silhouette) as a way to thank you for your feedback. Sorry, co-workers, you're excluded from this contest.
