We are soooo excited to share this great news! This Friday, December 16th, at 7pm on WMUR El's Cards will be featured in a story on NH Chronicle. Thank you so much to all of you who have reached out and wished us good luck! This is an exciting time for us.

We had a great time filming with Karen and Jason the day before Thanksgiving and have been busy filling orders and wrapping up our show season since that day. We have been receiving so many great orders and we thank you all!
So far so good with shipping! Nothing like the past couple of years were. That said, I set up an ordering deadlines page with some shipping FAQs. You can see that full page here.
Holiday deadline to order online for items being shipped is this Saturday, December 17th.
Deadline for front porch pickup orders is Wednesday, December 20th.
Any orders placed between December 22nd-December 27th will be shipped starting December 28th-when we return from a few days off for Christmas.
Don't forget about our gift wrap option. We can wrap your items purchased beautifully in any of our gift wraps and ship it directly to the recipient for you if you enter their shipping address during checkout.

And, something new to download. Just in the unlikely event that you do not receive your order in time for Christmas gift giving, I created two notes for you to download and print yourself to either wrap or put in a card. Either of these will let the recipient know that their gift is on the way.

These notes were originally requested by someone who wanted to order "Your Beloved Bookshelf"...our beautiful new custom gift! The turnaround time for creation and production is currently two weeks....then ship time on top of that. But, if it's the perfect gift for someone on your list, you can present them with one of our new notes.
We are honored to be part of this great NH show on Friday and hope you can all watch! For all of our out of state customers, we will be posting a link for you to see the show after it airs and will let you know when that happens. One thing that the cameraman mentioned several times during the day they were here taping...we are likely to have a bump in orders after the show airs! So if you have something in mind as a last minute gift for someone...this is your time :)
One more thing! If you are in Exeter, NH and are looking for some great gifts of all shapes and sizes (El's Cards or otherwise), check out Crafted New England on Water Street! It's right across from the town hall! A wonderful shop to check out-shop local-and you can find so many of our items there too. Kyle, the owner, makes the most wonderful candles! A great local store :)
We thank you sincerely for all of your support and enthusiasm! We couldn't do this without you and are grateful for you making our small business what it has become.
