Years ago, we became tired of nicely written cards finding their way to the trash can. Around the same time, we wanted to honor our late grandfather, Alec Baird. His incredible talent and artwork continued to speak to more than just being displayed in homes. We had a thought: why not create unique and exquisitely designed notecards with his most treasured masterpieces?
As you explore the site there are many images of the Hawaiian Islands to choose from for your card writing enjoyment! Some are familiar landmarks to people who grew up here, others are breathtaking images of nature along with historic places of worship. Hawaii filled Alec’s soul in a way only an artist could convey.
Whether it be a reason to celebrate, a holiday, a cheery hello, sympathy, or get well, we hope our selection captivates you the way it does for us. Happy shopping!
Let’s keep the art of writing alive!
“Words are magic our souls pour out”
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.”
