interview with a card designer.

Kathy Loyd- notecard designer.

How would you describe your letter writing style?
    My letter writing style is definitely casual. I tend to write just as if I was telling someone the same thing in person.

What is your favorite thing about writing letters?
    Connecting to the person I am writing to is my favorite thing about writing a letter. I always hope they are as happy to be getting a letter from me as I am them.

How did you get started making personalized notecards?
    I love quotes and I love paper so when I saw some blank note cards at a paper store I used to pass on my way home from work I tried it out and have been making them ever since.

Do you have a favorite quote or saying you like to put on notecards?
    I look for quotes that are specific to the person and what they are going through at the time. So I don't really have a favorite because I like so many. Although, I really like the quote I made up myself. :)

And what Quote is that?
    "Don't be so tied up in your virtual life that you fail to live the life right in front of you."

I notice that you only have colored envelopes you use with your notecards, is that for a specific reason?
    I mostly use color envelopes because color makes me smile and bills always come in white envelopes so when you see color in your mailbox, you know it will be something fun!

If someone wanted to order custom notecards from you, do you do custom orders?
    I just have the basic computer so I just do quotes. If someone wants a specific quote printed, I can do that!

If you are interested in personalized quotation notecards, please feel free to contact me at I will pass you on to Kathy!
