A Pen for Your Thoughts

French Quarter paper shop Color Cards offers a fun selection of sentiments.


Color Cards
918 Royal St.
New Orleans

You signed your bill for a lunch receipt recently and realized your signature looked more like someone pretending to know cursive than someone who actually does.

Practice your way back to better form at Color Cards in the French Quarter. The bright and welcoming shop - opened by the owner of Papier Plume just around the corner - is thoughtfully stacked with rows upon rows of cards for every sentiment you seek. From fun-loving encouragement statements to lovely letterpress with pressed flowers, there's something for every occasion. Add to it all vintage stamps, gifty items like Pantone sets and chic wrapping paper. And if you don't think your writing will be up to snuff, the brilliant spot offers in-house calligraphy.

It's like having autocorrect for your autograph.
