The Sarah Richardson Collection consists of gorgeous greeting cards, sophisticated stationery, elegant gift wrap and coordinating gift bags featuring designs created exclusively for Hallmark. Sarah Richardson is also a recognized television personality, known around the world for transforming ordinary spaces into magazine-worthy rooms. Richardson is the host and co-producer of five HGTV lifestyle series: Room Service, Design Inc, Sarah's House, Sarah 101, and most recently, Sarah Sees Potential which will debut on HGTV USA this fall. She is a past contributor and columnist on design and style for The Globe and Mail and Chatelaine, and was most recently named home design director at Good Housekeeping magazine.

There are 16 individual greeting card designs for everyday occasions including birthday, wedding, baby, congratulations, friendship and blank cards. The boxed note card sets and journals would make excellent gift sets. Two of her elegant design themes from her Kravet fabrics collection have also carried over into the collection and are featured on two stationery box sets.
"As a designer, I'm focused on the importance of the tactile experiences we have in our day-to-day life, so 'touch and feel' plays a huge role in everything I design," said Sarah Richardson, principal designer, Sarah Richardson Design. "In the world of email and text messages, sending a hand written note is a thoughtful way to connect with someone - it's also a reflection of personal style and expression. I'm excited to partner with Hallmark to bring my signature approach to print, pattern and design to a collection of paper products that can be embraced by everyone."
The collection ranges in price from $1.99 - $29.99 and is now available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores across Canada.
