Messenger has launched a new stationery series featuring artwork by popular artist Marjolein Bastin, whose work is greatly appreciated in the retail world of greeting cards, calendars, dinnerware, bedding, and gifts. “Through our consumer research, we are discovering that families still value and appreciate stationery products that feature comforting, meaningful, and recognizable art,” said Heather Garman, Director of Marketing at Messenger. “We want to make sure we are delivering product options that families want and ones that, in the end, touch the heart and make a difference.”
The “Beyond the Meadow” line of stationery products is the perfect blend of rustic charm. The oversized register book cover features a watercolor scene framed with a modern shiplap texture. Added detail is achieved with UV spot coating and foil accents that provide a galvanized steel effect. The artwork on the book cover wraps front to back and alludes to looking out the window just beyond the meadow. The book interior is designed with two Gallery Pages featuring additional artwork by Marjolein Bastin and a new original “Beyond the Meadow” poem to complement the artwork.
The new Beyond the Meadow series is complete with three sizes of service folders, deluxe size acknowledgement cards, prayer cards, two sizes of laminated bookmarks, and can be ordered in the new Tribute box packaging. In addition, this series is available in Make It! Personal stationery designs and can be easily personalized through Messenger’s Make It! Personal web application.
