when buyers email to say these cards are “spectacular,” you know you’ve found something really good. With Cartolina cards, there are notes of whimsy, humor that’s a little offbeat, and lush designs that are printed on both sides of thick, recycled paper with vegetable inks.

Cartolina has a pedigree, too: It's sold in Harrod's, The British Museum, Liberty of London, the National Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Downton Abbey (the real one!) and the Metropolitan Opera, and they design custom products for the Smithsonian.

But what you'll love most about Cartolina is the quirky artwork, hand-illustrated in the picturesque town of Nelson, B.C. And the design studio itself is special, too. They’re working out of an 1890’s miner’s hotel, located in a remote mountain town, where inspiration is all around ... could Cartolina be any more magical??
