Los Angeles: good greeting cards?
January 28, 2014 9:15 PM   Subscribe

In Los Angeles, where can I find good a good selection of greeting cards, letterpress if possible?

My backup is Papyrus, I guess, but I was looking for other options.

Urbanic Paper Boutique in Venice on Abbot Kinney.

Sometimes General Store on Lincoln in Venice has interesting cards. Same with Reform School in Silverlake.

When I was looking up the name of Urbanic I saw a mention of a place called Jonathan Wright which also looks promising.

There's a Paper Source in Santa Monica too if you happen to be a westsider. Also check out Arts & Letters.

Skylight Books in Los Feliz has a nice selection.

I came to say Urbanic too! It's my go-to both because I love their stuff and because my friends own it.

Seconding the hell out of Pulp. It's the smartest card shop in town. I drive 45 minutes out of my way to buy cards there.

Excellent suggestions upthread. I'd add that if you're in the area and looking for some more... odd offerings, I recommend Wacko.

Co-op 28 Handmade and Vintage in Los Feliz! It's mostly local artists, they always have at least 300 unique cards when I am there. Some are letterpress, some are collage, others are fancy cut outs.
