Instead of relying on your email and the inbox, walk to the mailbox this season. Connor for J.Crew has just launched the "Write Again" Collection in time for Holiday 2010. Just hitting the web and 10 select stores now, the exclusive collection of wedding invitations, elegant boxed sets and calendars are now available at select J.Crew boutiques,, through 800-562-0258, and the catalog as of December 1st. Choose from fun motifs to make your thank you's more original. Connor's detailed engraving is created in their Paris atelier with hand stamping done in the US. As a newer entrant in the fine paper category, the young stationer creates artisanal writing papers with endless monogram and motif design options. Rich dye hues and golden accents set off their die stamped hand painted icons in the most unique way. But wait it gets better. Packaging their papers in handsome grey linen - wrapped boxes, they are a treat to receive. Recently, Connor opened an appointment only space on the mezzanine level at the Plaza Hotel, so if you need something custom, pay Justin Felber and creative director Henri Richter-Werner a visit. From classic to cutting edge, Connor is helping to make the lost of letter writing relevant again. Make the mailbox instead of the inbox work for you, and pick up a set.

The classic Italian linen wrapped box with clean type has a distinctive look.

Pick a motif. Choose from 5 varied patterns that come in a set of 12 notes per box.

XoXo Guns for those you love but would sometimes like to kill.

A Rhino because they are so darn cute.

Feeling dangerous? Then the Snake is the way to go.

Elegant and full of mystique, Flamingos evoke old world glamour.

Need to keep better track of your time? How about the Connor 2011 Giraffe Calendar? It comes with a brass easel and could perch on a desk or table nicely.

LOVE stationery and have been stalking Connor ever since I received my introductory email. Leave it to our clever friends at J. Crew to pick them up for a collaboration! And how adorable is that new J. Crew catalogue cover - I have a few too many pages dog eared!

Oh, those are lovely paper confections! The rhino and giraffe are just screaming my name.

I love to receive mail and send it, no matter how much I use my computer. Email cannot replace the joy of finding a thank you note or a letter from friends far away. Great selection here, elegant and fun!
