Shopping for guys can be tricky. My rule of thumb for buying awesome men’s gifts is they should be A. edible, B. useful, or C. educational … and no matter what, they should be well made. Here are 9 of my favorite go to gifts for guys, perfect for the holidays, birthdays, or just because:

I spent Thanksgiving break stuck in bed with the flu. Boo! But Cyber Monday is here, so I guess it’s a good time to be stuck in bed with my computer! At the top of my shopping list is getting our family holiday cards ordered. Of course we’ll be sending out photo cards from our Cardstore collection. The Cyber Monday Sale at Cardstore is awesome this year: use coupon code CCP3122 for 49¢ flat holiday cards and coupon code CCP3149 for $1.49 Folded holiday cards. It would be extra awesome if you picked cards from the Delphine collection, please and thank you! Happy shopping.Pin It
Every time Chloe Aftel calls I know the project is going to be special. This time around she asked us for a “pop of kick ass color” to go with her “rad new logo.” (Yes, she’s from LA). We delivered with shocking electric turquoise edge painted business cards.
I think the new branding is a spot on match to her photography style: powerful and slightly dreamy. The image at right is one of my personal favorites. It was part of a stellar collection commissioned by Levis. Please note: the crappy photos in this post are by me, not the super talented lady we’re discussing here.
These letterpress cards are killer, right?! We printed them with our super super dark blackest black ink for a sharp, crisp impression; Reich Paper’s ultra thick SAVOY paper in brilliant white; tight edge painting on every.single.card; and lots and lots of clean white space.
I’d like to pause for a shout out to all our photographer clients for understanding the power of white space. We looooove youuuuu!Pin It
We’re thrilled to announce that the Delphine 2013 Holiday Collection for Cardstore is live! Working on Christmas cards is a year long cycle for us, so we’re always excited to finally see designs make it online. Hope you’ll check out the collection — and please send us a card, while you’re at it. We LOVE snail mail!Pin It
Our new Thanksgiving photo card collection for Cardstore is live! I love that you can order a single card, so you can personalize it for a specific person, or send out a whole bunch. Hook Cardstore up with your address book and they’ll even handle the envelope addressing, stamping, sealing and mailing for you. Easy as pumpkin pie! Some of these cards are a whole new look for us (hello, watercolors), so please let us know what you think of the new designs.Pin It
This fall we’re loving everything emerald green, leopard, and cats. Lytle spotted the cat flats in the window of a shoe store on King Street in Charleston and Erika is now obsessed. And that green leather tote bag with handy dandy pockets and pen holders … Santa? Saaaantaaaaa????

We take our office supplies pretty seriously around here (rule of thumb: retro + functional), so we were excited when Neenah Paper asked us to design file folders for them. Erika took inspiration from one of her favorite movies, Anchorman, when designing, and tested out the most difficult print method of all: white ink on black paper. We love how they turned out, but the best part of the whole project is taking them into client meetings and watching their reactions.Pin It
“Inspiration comes of working” is one of my favorite quotes (by Charles Baudelaire). We NEVER stop working around here. We try, but even on our days off we’re sketching and researching and talking shop.
I thought it was the perfect quote for an iPhone or iPad case. No more boring iPhone cases! Yay!! Please shop our new Delphine for Keka collection of phone and tablet cases. And for all you early adopters, yes, cases are available for the new iPhone 5s. And yes, I’m jealous of your new phone.
Meow is the Time to check out our new collection of fun phone and tablet cases.
There’s been a bit of radio silence around here … but only because we’ve been crazy busy! One of the fun projects we’ve been working on is a brand new line of fun, colorful phone and tablet cases. No more boring iPhone cases, people! Check out our new Delphine for Keka collection of phone and tablet cases. And for all you early adopters, yes, cases are available for the new iPhone 5.
