When our merchandising team took to the task of designing a standout collection of Mother’s Day cards for 2011, we invited our customers, friends and coworkers to our offices to share stories, “aha” moments and aspirations about mommyhood. I’m not sure there is anything that tops being a mom, or having an amazing one, which was affirmed over and over again during our office shindig. What an unforgettable bonding experience and source of inspiration for our Mother’s Day collection!
One of the coolest things I’ve always loved about Tiny Prints is that we have the opportunity to work with a lot of designers who are both dedicated moms and tops in their field. As soon as our Mother’s Day callout went out, everyone was chomping at the bit to design for this year’s greeting card collection. We were overwhelmed by the creativity and unique sentiment in each of the card submissions. Here are some of the trends we highlighted and what we received—and loved!
Cards with a Handmade or Scrapbook Feel
Modern Family Meets Polaroids
I love this signature look of our new designer, Speckles and Weeds.
Royalty for Just One Day
I’m still dreaming about the royal wedding… yes, we can all dream!
Fun Award or Coupon Book Designs
Secretly hoping for one of these from my two little ones this year…
As a mother of two and one of the co-founders of Tiny Prints, Laura is the heart and soul behind our design aesthetic. She was inspired to dedicate her career to design, etiquette and style by her mother’s own love of all-things-pretty, and now she’s thrilled to share her top picks for the coming season with her Tiny Prints family.
