Audience Participation Required

Just in time for graduation, I’ve finished several note cards in my typography series. The first is just a simple congratulations, but the texture of the vintage lead type really makes an impact with such a simple design. And I love the unique shape — perfect for checks. Not socks, not monogrammed towels, checks!

The next is the first of many note cards I plan to make of famous quotes and sage advice. I did a project about Helen Keller in college and have had this quote stuck in my head ever since — I’m glad I can finally put it to good use!

I have several phrases in mind, but I’d like your help to come up with more! Simply leave a comment below, making sure to include your email address in the designated space, and if I decide to use your quote, I’ll send you a couple cards free! Do not recommend copyrighted material (song lyrics, poems, etc.). If it’s a quote, please include who said it. Feel free to comment as many times as you’d like — can’t wait to see what you come up with!
