Art of Manliness Letterpress Stationery – $15.00 for a box of 15

It’ll be here before you know it.  So if you’re in need of a few ideas on what to give (or in some cases, what to put on your own list) this year, this is the place to be for the next couple weeks.  Our annual 12 days of Dappered covers one item each week-day between now and December 20th.  That’ll leave some time for shipping if you’re the last minute type.  All will be reasonably affordable.  See the growing archive here.

These have been mentioned before, and they’re also a part of this year’s Art of Manliness gift guide, but they’re absolutely still worth adding to the 12 Days of Dappered.

Cards, stationery, and all things correspondence seem to usually lean feminine.  Heavily.  Not so with these.

Pick three motifs from a wide selection of guns, razors, animals, and other manly stuff.  Pay $15, and a few days later you’ve got a stack of do anything cards ready to be given as a gift, or, used to thank others for the kind things they’ve done for you this year:

You’ll get five cards of each motif in the box of 15.  Each card comes with an envelope.  The paper is textured, thick, and impressive, and before shipping it works out to just a buck a piece.  That’s a lot less than your average Hallmark card, which won’t leave nearly the impression one of these will.

Comes nicely presented in a clear plastic topped cardboard box with a bright red paper AoM strap across the front.  See all 27 motifs here, or, take a quick look at a few favorites below.  Know that not all the motifs end up top center like the straight razor.
