Our Valentine's Day station is open all this week up until February 14th. Come in store and talk to our staff to create a heartfelt Valentines Card and finish it off with an extra special touch by sealing your envelope with a wax seal.

Choose from a selection of different premium blank cards and envelopes and write your valentine message with fountain pens filled with the 6 different Standard Bindery fountain pen inks.

Decorate your card with different stamps and washi tape and finish it off with a stunning rose or flourish wax seal with a choice of wax colour, all for $15 per card.

If you can't make it in store this week - we share our top tips below to help you create your very own card from home using our favourite items available in our online store.

STEP 1 - PICK A CARD
Choose from our range of premium Standard Bindery card stocks and colours. Today I'm choosing a beautifully romantic textured cream card called 'Candlelight'

STEP 2 - CRAFT YOUR MESSAGE
Using the new Standard Bindery range of inks, craft a heartfelt message to your loved one.

Begin with a greeting - "Dear" is classic and traditional, conveying a serious tone and the perfect start to make your special someone feel important. Try combining it with a nickname, or a name only you call each other, to make it more personal. Other great greetings include; "To my Valentine", "To my soulmate" or "Happy Valentine's Day".

The body of your card is where you can really express your thoughts and feelings. Let them know why you're writing this card, and even include a compliment. Follow it up by sharing a memory the two of you had together that means a lot to you, or acknowledging a special moment you shared together recently. Perhaps they have done something for you or added something to your life that you appreciate. Follow it up by sharing a feeling or dream you have for the future; this will convey how much you value their ongoing role in your life.

Finish with a beautiful closing followed by your name. For example "Forever yours" "With all my heart" or a simple yet meaningful "Love,"

STEP 4 - PICK AN ENVELOPE
Mix it up or choose a matching Envelope. Today we're choosing a matching textured cream envelope in 'Candlelight'

STEP 5 - FINISH WITH A WAX SEAL
Seal it with a beautiful Wax Seal in your choice of colours and designs. Choose your favourite wax colour, melt it down in the melting spoon provided, and stamp your design. Today we are going with a beautiful Flourish seal by Stamptitude, and I created a mix of two wax colours to create a beautiful swirl pattern.
