064 – “pretend to appreciate”
Please pretend to appreciate this card.
If you opened it in front of me,
I’m probably looking at you now
while you’re reading it, waiting
for some expression of approval
to register on your face. Or if
I’m not there, you might need
to make a similar expression
next time you see me in person.
In any case, please try
to make that expression
appear genuine and heartfelt.
An actual Sappycard measures 5 x 7 inches (A7 standard), is professionally printed on archival quality, richly colored 80# or 100# cardstock, and comes with an envelope. Cards may arrive unfolded but neatly scored. Actual colors may vary slightly from colors on computer monitor. Website images have been zoomed for readability.
All Sappycards papers are 100% recycled (mostly 100% Post-Consumer, a few 50% and 30%). Most papers were created using Total Chlorine Free or Elemental Chlorine Free processes. All envelopes are 100% Post-consumer recycled content. All inks are vegetable-based. Series VI papers were created using 100% Hydropower. All orders are packed and shipped using recycled paper materials.
The background designs of Series IV and VI come from my collection of what the Mailpiece Design Analyst at my local Post Office told me were called “mailpiece security screens,” those designs they print on the insides of envelopes to prevent people from reading through the paper.
