Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for any occasion! These beautiful notecards feature very high quality color printing, the image on the front and back sides printed in continuity, as one unified image. Open the card, and the history of the image is printed on the left of the card, the right totally blank--appropriate for any occasion--a thank you note, welcome to the neighborhood, happy holidays--anything. The card itself is a miniature work of art, and can be displayed year-round. And the envelopes are equally tasteful, heavy stock, lined by an intense navy field adorned by a simple golden pattern. These beautiful cards, indeed, encourage the lost art of handwritten notes in our contemporary world.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Somewhat disappointing + sticker was a nightmare From the picture, it appeared that the box itself was going to have a little gold foil accents but that was not the case. Also, the colors are not as bright as the picture shows. Very muted colors. Without any gold accents and very muted colors, the box is pretty drab looking. Plus, there was a large, round 2 1/2 inch sticker stuck to the top of the box saying 'Persian notecards". At first glance, I thought it was just an "easy peel" sticker that would just pull off. DEFINITELY not the case. It took over 1/2 hour to remove the sticker, from the top of the box, in very tiny little pieces!!! Why they ever put such a large, hard-to-peel off sticker on the lid is beyond me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely gift I bought three of these and am tempted to keep one for myself. The box is a lovely keepsake and the cards are very nice. I feared the box would be flimsy, but it is just like the picture and is strong enough to last. But I cannot understand why they put this ridiculous sticker on the top of the box. It is difficult to remove and serves no purpose since the purchaser obviously knows what he or she purchased. I recommend strongly that the manufacturer stop damaging the lovely box with this ugly, pointless sticker. It does come off, but who wants to put in the work on something so unnecessary. Still well worth getting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic accessory Confession: I don't need any more stationery. I bought the Persan Patterns notecards only to get the goregous box. I love traditional Persian, Islamic and Ottoman art, and I wanted to display the box as aesthetic "eye candy." But the notecards are lovely too, and on heavy stock. The designs are on both the front and back -- impressive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally charming, unique gift I bought the Persian Patterns Notecards as a Christmas gift for a very dear friend who continues to value the written word, as do I. Emails are quick and efficient, and phone calls are more personal, but there are those occasions when a handwritten note is so highly appropriate, especially when it has keepsake value. These notecards have an exquisite pattern, and the matching box can be used for small treasures (jewelery), office supplies (stamps or paper clips), or make-up (lipsticks). When presented as a gift, and the notecards are all used up, the box will remind the recipient of your creativity and unique sense of style, as well as your thoughtfulness. I plan to purchase a few more sets for future gift giving, and of course, one for myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but don't put a sticker on the box! I bought this as a gift, in part because I knew the recipient would love the box it came in and could use it again after going through all of the cards.We were both dismayed to find that a big sticker had been slapped across the top of the box ("# cards inside!"). After spending 10 minutes or so trying to get it off, it was determined that, yes, it could (painstakingly) be scraped off without damage to the box below. But WHY would you do such a thing? Especially since it came wrapped in plastic, and the sticker could just have been put on the plastic instead?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Misleading photos The colors on the note cards are nowhere near as vivid in person as they seem on the website. The palette is much more muted than I expected. Also, the lines are not bold and crisp, but softened and a bit blurry. I would not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Box and Note Cards This is a beautiful keepsake box and the note cards are beautiful too. The sticker came off easily with no problem. Wonderful to give as a gift or keep.
