If you read CBB with any regularity, you know that Tea Collection and Tiny Prints are two of our favorites companies. So, as you can imagine, when they partnered to combine Tea’s fabulous prints and colors with Tiny Prints amazing selection of stationery and paper products — we were a little excited, to say the least. I recently was lucky enough to receive samples of their brand new thank you note cards, address return labels and gift tags and I have to say — Tea Collection and Tiny Prints are a match made in heaven.

Printed on 110 lb. white matte cardstock and measuring in at 4.25 x 5.5 inches, the thank you note cards ($31.25 for 25; shown at intro of review) are the perfect weight and size. The writing area of the card we sampled, in the ‘Pink Birds on a Branch’ style, is a really pleasing shade of pink. The borders of the card are dotted in chartreuse flowers with an occasional pink flower mixed in, and just below the top border are two pale yellow birds, sitting on a purple branch. Your name appears just above the bottom border. The card is colorful and has a lot going on, giving it great visual appeal, but it doesn’t feel cluttered or overdone. There is plenty of room to jot down a quick, and stylish, thank-you note.

Be sure to order your coordinating gift tags ($12 for 24; shown at right in the ‘Chocolate Turtle Pond’ style) and return address labels ($9 for 24) at the same time, if you’re ordering the same style as your thank you note cards, to ensure color matching. I love gift tags because I’m notorious for showing up at a birthday party with a great gift — but no card. Tags are great to have on hand because you’re card gaffe can be masked quickly and easily by slapping a tag right on your present. These are the perfect size (2×2 inches) — just enough space to write out a short greeting for the recipient. The return address labels are equally adorable, measuring in at 2.4×1.1-inches and they really help pull the whole look together if you are coordinating with the other items.

In addition to ‘Pink Birds on a Branch’ and ‘Chocolate Turtle Pond,’ the thank you notes, gift tags and return address labels are available in several different styles including: Pink Chrysanthemum and Pink Tori with Flower along with holiday themes like Holiday Patchwork and Blossoming Season.
