Red Cap Cards (and its correspondingly beautiful line of invitations) is a celebration of the fine art of correspondence. And it is an art, truly. That’s why creators, illustrators, and design curators Hal Mertz and Carrie Gifford seek out some of the finest illustrators in the world to design their boutique collection of fine greeting cards, holiday cards, and other pieces of stationery. And we’re happy to add our modern touch to their artists’ fine work: with Paperless Post, you can enjoy personalizable Red Cap greeting cards and Red Cap invitations that add a beautifully artistic touch to every moment you reach out.

It’s hard to sum up one style in Red Cap Cards’ invitations and greeting cards. After all, the Red Cap Cards’ artists roster includes some of the best illustrators whose names you may not know, but whose work has been delighting you everywhere your eye lands. But, if you made us, we’d say that Red Cap Cards’ illustrations are romantic and painterly (like in Becca Stadtlander’s floral drawings). Or maybe you could better call them lush and fantastical storybook-worthy panels (like in Yelena Brysenkova’s little tableaux). But that’d be forgetting all the witty mid-century inspired cartooning (like Blanca Gomez’s witty figures in motion). And what on Earth would you call the altogether original graphic storytelling (like Jon Klassen’s). See? We couldn’t possibly keep it to just one description.

And they aren’t just good for any one party or occasion. They’re good for all of them: birthdays, wedding celebrations, and yes, there’s a Red Caps Card holiday collection that turns their artists’ attentions to the most wonderful time of the year. With our smart online tools, you can match the Red Cap artist you love most to the events of your choosing. Just pick out a design, and then customize the wording of your card or invitation—right down to the fonts and type layout. You’ll also be able to use our smart online address book and RSVP tracking functions, making sending Red Cap greeting cards and invitations doubly smart—a smart design choice and a smart planning choice, too.
