Love them!

I usually make my Holiday cards, but this year I fell and cracked a bone in my wrist. It didn’t take long for me to accept the necessity of buying cards, and these do not disappoint! I do love Shōson!

Thank you for giving us a shot, we're happy to hear we delivered! Get well soon!

Pretty & versatile gift.

Once you’ve written all the lovely cards, you still have a beautiful keepsake box. Highly recommended.
