It’s almost that time of the year! The time of the year that people who work for postal services probably dread the most. Tis’ the season for greeting cards, be it for Christmas or for the New Year. While electronic greetings have become a major trend, what with the wide range of social networking platforms we have access to nowadays, handwritten snail-mailed cards just pack that much more warmth and sincerity than mass sending a copy-and-paste kind of generic message to every friend, family member and I-don’t-remember-who-you-are on your contact list.
If you’re a manga or anime fan who likes to send cards with a touch that represents who you are, or if you know someone who would be thrilled to receive an anime-inspired greeting card, these awesome hand-crafted anime/manga-inspired cards would probably be your best bet!
Based in San Diego, California, Papercut Dragon creates and retails handmade all-occasion cards that will tickle the fancy of anime, manga, game or Vocaloid lover. The cards feature the familiar silhouettes of popular characters, hand-crafted with die-cut colored paper, and are generally priced between $4 to $8 depending on how detailed the design is. Here are some of the designs they currently have listed in their online store.
▼ Rin Matsuoka (Free!)
▼ Haruka Nanase (Free!)
▼ “Godoka” (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
▼ Tsubomi Kido (Kagerou Project)
▼ Sebastian Michaelis (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler)
▼ Sinon (Sword Art Online II)
▼ Kirito (Sword Art Online II)
I can already think of a couple of friends who would be thrilled to receive one of these. What’s even more appealing is that Papercut Dragon accepts custom orders, so even if your fandom is not one of those mainstream big hits, you can still look forward to getting your hands on one of Papercut Dragon’s stylishly geeky cards.
