New Hampshire Holiday Greeting Cards

Don’t forget to say “Hello” and “Thanks!”



They don’t call them “greeting cards” for nothing. Who wants to be “greeted” by another piece of e-mail? If you want to send a proper holiday hello (or thank you) to the many special people in your life, avoid the e-card fad and stick with real paper and ink.

Artful Greetings

Hundelrut Studio in Plymouth makes delightful holiday and Christmas-themed cards with intricate line art and amusing sentiments that speak volumes. Remember, you can’t string up e-cards over the fireplace or cut them up the next year to make gift tags.

Cards for a Cause

CASA of NH (Court Appointed Special Advocates) sells beautiful cards designed by local artists, students and photographers that come blank or personalized. Proceeds help abused and neglected children in NH. See all the choices at casanh.org/cards.

Their lovely, welcoming store also offers a large range of paper products, stationery, holiday cards and more. They're located at 29 Congress St. in Portsmouth.

Steele's Stationers

Steele's Stationers opened way, way back in 1871, making it the oldest business in the Monadnock area.

Steele's is located at 40 Main St., Peterborough.


The Paper Patch

It's back to the Seacoast to visit the Paper Patch. The first store was established in 1974 in Portland, Maine's Old Port district, and the Portsmouth location opened a few years later in 1981. They offer local items, gifts, journals, books and of course lovely stationery and cards. The Paper Patch is located at 36 Market St., Portsmouth.
