070 – “throw this away”
You’re probably going
to throw this card away.* *or recycle it
It might get put out on a shelf in your house
for a while. Or it might even make it
into a pile of keepsakes in some
drawer or closet. But one day,
when the mood is right, you’ll look through
that pile, think of how you felt (or didn’t feel)
when you first read this card and how much
has changed (or hasn’t changed) since then,
and you’ll let out a heavy sigh (or you won’t
sigh, or think, or anything) and you’ll proceed-
despite (or because of) all of this –
to throw it away.* *or recycle it
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.
