I had a box of Galison cards from several years ago, the series was Women of The Renaissance with fantastic reproductions of Botticelli portraits, etc, but now am running out so I ordered the Van Gogh set. It is absolutely comparable in quality with the earlier set. It contains reproductions in beautiful colors of 4 Van Gogh works, including exteriors. It’s pretty important to me that a higher quality card actually arrive at its destination in a similarly well-produced envelope. That is certainly the case here, as it was with my earlier Galison cards. One tasteful, good stock envelope for use with all 4 cards. Well worth the investment when you have a special person or message in mind , when a cheap knockoff from Walgreens is just not going to make the impression you have in mind. Note that all cards are blank in the interior and you don’t have to worry about any annoying glitter . This is the good stuff. Price is reasonable given all the quality features.
The cardstock holds ink well enough and the cards are beautiful.
