Summer is amongst us! How many of you have a birthday or know someone who has a birthday during the summer months? Well, if you’re looking for a sweet birthday card then you will love these cards from PAPYRUS!



The word Papyrus (pah·pie·rus) comes from the earliest form of paper crafted from the papyrus plant. PAPYRUS was founded in the family kitchen of Marcel and Margrit Schurman in 1950.

Inspired by a love of fine art, they had a vision for products of uncompromising quality which provided the starting point from which genuine personal connections are made. They presented their products in an inviting gallery setting to encourage engagement with the products and with a friendly helpful staff.

60 years and over 450 stores later, we are now united behind the Schurman Retail Group banner and operate multiple retail brands; PAPYRUS, NIQUEA.D, Paper Destiny, Carlton Cards Retail and American Greetings retail.

Under the leadership of Marcel’s and Margrit’s daughter, Dominique Schurman, Schurman Retail Group is charting a future shaped by modern, relevant and elegant design. Across North America, Schurman Retail Group, under its retail brands, offers an ever-expanding array of products including custom printed announcements, products for entertaining, greeting cards, gift wrap, gift bags, stationery, note cards, journals and unique gift products.

What I think

PAPRUS sent me their Pink & Gold Donuts Letterpress Birthday Card and their Illustrated Donuts Boxed Notes (Set of 20). Both these items are super sweet and would have been perfect to celebrate National Donut Day! That’s okay, though, because they are great for all those sweet birthdays, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post.


The Scrumptious pink & gold foiled donuts are the highlight of the letterpress birthday card. Representing decades of heartfelt connections, Marcel Schurman embodies a sensibility all its own. The graphics of the card are very high quality and certainly make me crave a chocolate with sprinkles donut (my favorite) whenever I see it! The inside of the card is plain and simply says “it’s your BIRTHDAY!” in pink plain lettering.

The boxed donut notecards are perfect for letting someone you know you’re thinking about them, say “happy birthday”, or a basic “thank you note”. This is a set of 20 cards with 4 different designs. They also come with cute pink envelopes!  These have deliciously cute graphics on the front of the cards but is blank inside of the card.


Both the individual card and the boxed card set are high quality. Of course, I would expect nothing less from PAPYRUS. I have used their brand before and have always been pleased with the quality. Once again, with the cards, I was rather impressed with the quality. The cardstock used for the cards is definitely a quality one worth noting and not of the same quality that you would find at say the dollar store for instance. Plus, the designs are super cute!


The bottom line is if you’re in the market for some new cards, but want quality ones, head to PAPYRUS and order yours before they’re gone. I promise you will not be disappointed!
