SOCIAL STATIONERY

Forms of DecorationItalian border of color, just lining the edge of sheet and fold of envelope, is most attractive. Daybreak Pink or Baltique Blue with a small monogram in self-tone is in pleasing taste, the monogram appearing again on the envelope if not obtrusive.

Quarter-inch borders of a darker shade than the paper are set a half-inch inside the edge. The pastel colors are extremely dainty treated in this way.

All these variations from the simple unglazed white note sheet in its square-cut envelope are, although quite correct, entirely a matter of individual taste and but hints for the interested. There is no better or higher form, however, than the kid-finished paper, unruled, unglazed, of firmest texture and showing but a tiny crest or unobtrusive monogram.
