Product Review: Charlyn Koo


Package from Charlyn Koo.

I opened a package. Inside, I found a parchment paper envelope tied in brown satin ribbon. After removing the ribbon and opening this envelope, my breath was taken away by what was inside. Beautifully designed cards that are suitable for almost any occassion.


Cards from the Glitzy & Golden Collection at charlynkoo.com.

I actually don't know where to begin with this review. When I said my breath was taken away, this was not an exaggeration: I gasped when I saw the beauty of these cards. They are rich and well made. They stand out. The designs are completely unique and completely gorgeous, even frameworthy.

The first collection of cards I saw was from the Glitzy & Golden collection. Each card is rich in color with gold foil designs that are feminine, yet strong.

Inside isn't just blank paper, it's another sheet of paper with little flecks of color- this makes me think this paper is recycled, though it doesn't look or feel that way. It's perfectly smooth and very easy to write on.

The Glitzy & Golden collection from Charlyn Koo is absolutely stunning. Each design shimmers and sparkles with metallic yumminess and strong femininity.

The next collection from Charlyn Koo that I have the honor of reviewing is the Autumn After Rain collection.

I can't even begin to tell you how much
I love this collection. It is colorful, imaginative, evocative, and ethereal. Really, it's inspiring. The combination of colors, it's subtle impact- these cards are
true works of art.

Aside from the stunning exteriors of each card in the Autumn After Rain collection, there are interiors that are just as thoughtful. I never thought I could open a card and be impressed, but I was with these cards. Each is different, but equally as gorgeous.
