Stationery set, made by Red Letter Paper Co. in Jersey City, N.J., priced at $16
We're rolling out 12 Days of Indie Merchant Gifts. Readers can vote for their favorite gifts, starting Dec. 12.
Today's gift is for the iPhone-obsessed person in your life. "I'm pretty addicted to my iPhone," business owner Stephanie Hinderer wrote in her submission to our Indie Merchant Holiday Gift Guide. "I'm betting a lot of people you know are, too."
Hinderer, who runs a stationery company called Red Letter Paper Co. in Jersey City, N.J., created these amusing "not sent from my iPhone" notecards, which of course are designed to land in a person's mailbox rather than email inbox. Snail-mail stationery with an attitude? We like it.
The notecards "would be a great gift for the smartphone-loving hipster/techie in your life," Hinderer writes. "Or totally appropriate for your boss or co-worker." (Non-tech-stars who like old-fashioned communication might appreciate the humor, too.)
Just make sure you tell gift recipients that no typos are allowed, Hinderer says. We couldn't agree more.
Check back tomorrow to see which indie merchant's gift we've selected for Day No. 10. And don't forget to vote for your favorite, starting Dec. 12.
