Butterflies

We visit Belize often and one visit took us to a butterfly farm where we learned that no matter what you or the butterflies do, “they will get sick and die.” The recent  Federal Government destruction of an important butterfly refuge on the Texas and Mexico border when the butterfly population is already down by 97% broke my heart and I went digging through my butterfly photos to design cards.

We’ve been lucky to see three of these beauties in the wild. We took a trip up the Monkey River to see the howler monkeys, but the butterflies were equally magical if not as loud.

Included here are The Blue Morpho, The Red Postman, The Malachite, and The Owl Butterfly.

In creating Starkey Cards, I learned about business plans, business models, and mission statements. But the truth is that I focused on the paper. I knew I could never do this without paper I loved.

I wanted my paper to be American made, heavy, renewable, unique in shape, and acid free. I found it. 

  • The card stock, envelopes, and business cards are all American made and hail from California, the Carolinas, and Rhode Island.
  • The card stock is heavy.  It weighs 220 grams per square meter. That’s a lot.
  • All the paper is 100% renewable cotton. The business cards are made from old t-Shirts and that tickles me.
  • The notecards are square and not the usual rectangles. Each card is a 5.25 inch square.
  • The card stock is archival and acid free.  The notecards are done on museum quality paper that will last.  The images will endure.
