Deployment Stationery

It may seem silly to pick out specific stationery for a deployment, but Lane and I both have a deep love for paper products. He is the only man I have ever met who will wander around Paper Source or Papyrus with me for hours. Probably why I married him. 
During Ranger School, I used distinctive airmail style envelopes for all my letters. Lane said he loved getting mail because he could always tell which letters were from me before they even handed them out. We wanted to do something similar during this deployment. Lane's letters to me will be arriving on this incredibly beautiful Crane & Co stationery cards.

Are those not the most perfect manly/soldiery/refined/gentlemanly cards you have ever seen?  I haven't picked out my signature paper for this deployment, but I definitely plan on finding something beautiful. I have been perusing Crane & Co's site and absolutely love so many options.

I highly recommend that y'all check out their new Americana collection. So many of these cards would be absolutely perfect for your man in the military. Crane & Co isn't paying me anything to promote these, I just happen to find them all irresistible. 


  1. You're good! I just wander around the Target and Walmart clearance stationary so I can send a new type of card every time I write. I divvy up my finds with a couple of other wives. I'm sure our husbands don't notice they're all getting the same cards.... ;) (And I'm fairly sure they don't care so long as they're getting letters- ours do not have good paper taste like Lane!)

    LOVE that he knows to look for a special envelope to know it's from you :)

  2. I don't think it's silly, I think it's very sweet! When my hubby went to Basic in January of '11, we got camo stationary, stamps, and envelopes as gifts for his family members so they could write to him. These options are much more sophisticated, though!*

  3. This is such a sweet idea! When my future hubs is away for military stuff, I now have an excuse to buy pretty stationary now. :)
