Rifle Paper Co. Illustrated Notes & Calling Cards

THERE ARE SO many things I could say about personalized stationary, the first (and most obvious) being that YOU GET TO HAVE YOUR NAME ON IT.

This is incredibly important to me because when I was growing up, I could never find my name on anything in novelty gift shops.

Lurid, tacky signs boasting  "every single name imaginable" on hideous plastic key-chains always proved to be consistently disappointing - a fact that I personally believe has given rise to my consequent battle with severe personalizophilia...

Yes. I am a personalizing-monster. 

If I could get away with it without looking insane, everything I own would be stamped with either my name or face on it (or BOTH), because that's just how personalizophilia works, and I'm almost 100% certain this is a new medical disorder that nobody has discovered yet, which means I am an honest-to-goodness pioneer and if you take this away from me your teeth with fall out of your face.

...

Which brings me on to the somewhat-related subject of an amazing company called Rifle Paper Co. 

Owned by Anna Bond and her husband Nathan, they do just about the most covet-able, adorable stationary I've ever seen. 

I literally discovered them like a hot second ago but I'm already beyond obsessed.

A CUSTOMIZED ILLUSTRATION. OF YOUR FACE.

... OH MY GOD I SERIOUSLY CAN'T BELIEVE IT, THIS IS LIKE MY HOLY GRAIL!!!!

I need this so terribly, my face is tingling.

Personalizophilia, people. It's a legit thing.

And the genius folks from Rifle Paper Co. are just enabling me with all these promises of total and utter customization.

Need, need, need ...

  1. oh. my. god. that really is awesome- especially how they can make a characterization of your face on it too!! and i was totally the same way at the key chain gift shops! my name is marilyn but spelled marlen, so the closest i could get was to buy a marlene one and then white out the extra "e". ugh haha

    1. The illustrated face is probably the most important part of the whole thing to me. It still makes me squeal when I look at it. And oh god, how deprived are we, Marlen? At the very least, you could find a name that you could make some changes to. It was as if my name didn't exist at all.

      I blame my parents for accidentally giving me personalizophilia.

      Not cool.

    1. Is it bad that I want to order 200 cards and just hoard it all?

    1. It's a super great idea! I need my boyfriend to come have a look at this and get it for my birthday.

      I'm not picky. I can settle for 10 cards and just never give any out.

    1. You and I both, Lucy! There aren't enough words in the English language to express exactly how much I need this. Argh.

  10. these are certainly adorable! thanks so much for sharing them. and i find your little quirk with monograming things quite funny - maybe it stemmed exactly from the fact that your name was never able to be found when it came to those really crappy keychains - and i know exactly the kinds you are talking about. usually found in disney land or other touristy places, haha.

    1. These are wonderful! I'm still deciding which font to go with... At this rate, an order will never be put through.

      And yes, exactly the ones you're thinking of - crappy and tacky! Personalizophilia is a crippling disease and it was definitely all the key-chains' fault for never having the decency to have my name on there. The nerve.
