Radiant Orchid… This magical and enigmatic purple hue was envisioned by Pantone to encourage expanded creativity, intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. Now if you’re really confused as to why we’re even talking about this color, you’ve clearly been living under a rock for the past five months. But it’s okay—we’ll break it down for you. For 2014, global color authority Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the Color of the Year. Now that you know, you’ll notice it’s majorly trending everywhere.

Radiant Orchid is dominating design as it pops up as a modern accent on walls and textiles as well as in graphic and artistic palettes. The color is captivating on its own, but also surprisingly adaptable, complementing neutrals in a way that’s strangely soothing while making an even stronger statement when color-blocked with brighter shades like turquoise or yellow.

Recycled Paper Greetings artists are nothing if not up to date on the latest graphic design trends. So of course you’ll find the vibrant hue on our cards. It’s aesthetically pleasing and has a unique ability to inspire confidence, joy, love... you get the idea. Our artists pair the color à la mode with whimsical sentiments to add to the hue’s beguiling charm. Neutrals work swimmingly for a classic sentiment and sister shades like purple and red create a bold canvas without overpowering. Whether it’s paired with a playful joke or heartfelt congratulations, we’ve got the latest it-color for any occasion.
