We all love a bonus!  Just look around and see any gift with purchase or “bonus days!” and we all get a little excited.  So I can’t help but get a little excited when we announced our Bonus Gift Certificate promotion.  When you purchase a gift certificate in denominations of $50 or $100, you get a bonus gift certificate you can use!  When you purchase a $50 gift certificate, you receive a $10 bonus.  When you purchase a $100 gift certificate, you receive a $25 bonus.  With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get something Mom will love to use and you also get a bonus for getting her the perfect gift.  Our gift certificates also make great gifts for bridal showers.  They can purchase things for their big day such as personalized napkins, favors, bridesmaids gifts or of course, stationery for all their thank you’s!  A gift certificate from The Stationery Studio also makes a great housewarming gift.  We have wonderful stampers, address labels, moving announcements and gifts for their new home.  The choices really are endless!

Hurry, though!  Our Bonus Gift Certificate promotion runs through May 10th so make sure you get YOUR bonus before it’s too late.

Wood-ology 101 on Cutting Board Wood Shades

30 Mar

march-woodBoardsWooden maple cutting boards made with premium quality hard maple wood makes a great portable cutting work surface or an elegant serving tray.  They also make a beautiful gift for holidays or anniversaries or housewarming!  Here is a little “wood-ology” about the variety in wood color, according to one of our leading Maple Leaf experts.


There are two types of maple wood that are harvested – summer maples and winter maples – when you see a hard maple that has more color that means the wood has been harvested in the summer because the sap in the maple is still in the tree, on a macro level, at the time it was cut.  When you see a board that is more toward the cream or white shades, that tree has been typically harvested during the winter and the sap has been harvested from the tree in all likelihood.


The boards are a natural product and it will vary.  The maple does patina over time and become more honey, especially when treated with butcher block oil.  A wooden cutting board is one of our favorite gift ideas, it’s something special they likely would not buy for themselves!
