The Beatles said you can’t buy them love, which is probably because you can’t put a price on it. At least that’s what The Knack sang in 1980. (You know The Knack, aka ‘the My Sharona guys’.)
I’m not going to attempt to determine the going rate for an ounce of love, but I’ve got to tell you that I think determining a price for one of our cards is just about as difficult to do.
We set out with a simple mission (cool cards, warm wishes) and a goal (doing all things for the glory of God). We also decided to make RLPCo an environmentally friendly company by e-commuting, choosing recycled papers, printing at a carbon offset, wind-powered facility and shipping the end product in envelopes made from 100% recycled materials.
But these aren’t the cheapest options. At each stage of development we had to decide which options would best suit our customers. What would you want? In the end, we decided to go with the best quality and best environmental options possible – and you’ll see this as soon as you hold one of our cards in your hand.
In an effort to make these cards affordable, we’ve cut the costs as much as we can, still committing to give 10% of sales of our No Vancancy cards to World Orphans.
On average, our cards cost under $2 each. A well-known card company charges $3.49. We won’t deny that they have some great cards and a wide selection. But if your priorities are the same as ours, you’ll be happy you chose RLPCo. And can you really put a price on happiness?

I don’t know what your parents told you about where cards come from, but I can assure you the involvement of birds, bees and storks is kept to a minimum here at RLPCo.
Our 1000 Words cards come from many places around the globe, but they share a common theme: celebrating God. In our fast-paced, smartphone-toting, do-it-all world, we often forget to stop and see God at work around us. But when we do, we see a loving God who not only crafted the mountains and rivers, but also sent the ray of sunshine that dances on the flower petal.
These moments are where our cards are born.

From the beginning, we’ve wanted RLPCo to be environmentally friendly. Fortunately, there are many options available for paper made from recycled materials and even printing at a carbon offset, wind-powered facility. Score.
One decision we made early on was to use ribbon made from 100 percent recycled materials to tie up the cards before shipping. The ribbon we chose is recyclable, but it’s also reusable.
Here are five ways to reuse your RLPCo ribbons:
1) Tie a bow on a paperclip, then use it to find your pages easily.
2) Glue the ribbon around the edges of a photo. You can place the photograph in a traditional frame or hang it up with the ribbon frame.
3) Cut the ribbon in half then tie each piece around a napkin for simple, elegant look.
4) Tie the ribbon around the narrow neck of a flower vase to compliment your flowers.
5) Scrapbook embellishments!
How will you use yours?

I can’t tell you how long I’ve had a laptop. It’s been a long time that it’s been my computer model of choice. I think maybe before or around the time I went to college? Which was 10 years ago. (Cripes.)
But like all computers over time, my much-loved Powerbook just wasn’t cutting it for my increasing need for it to do more, and faster. So I did the inevitable: bought a new computer. But not just any computer. Not a laptop. A desktop. An iMac.
As I’ve grown into my career as a designer, I’ve developed the need for a little more so-called floor space on my monitor, and the added flexibility of a mouse over a trackpad.
And then I was hit with a realization. I would be using a mouse again. Which is fine. (And it’s not just any mouse, but an Apple Magic Mouse, which is totally cool.) But you know what a mouse means right? A mouse PAD.
Ugh. I feel some kind of weird pressure that your mouse pad has to be cool but not geeky and somehow represent who you are. I was already fretting over having to pick one out before my computer even arrived. But then we went to my in-laws’ house last weekend for Memorial Day and my husband got into some old boxes of his stored stuff in their garage. And he found one of his old mouse pads. And I kinda love it.
Firstly, Dr. Seuss is way cool. But the particular text on this mouse pad really has a deeper meaning for me. I’ve been struggling for a while with my confidence as a designer. But this new project, RLPCo, is forcing me to trust myself with my mouse. And to trust God with my mouse.
So would I, can I, with a mouse? Why, yes. Yes. I would. I can. I will. I will!

Make every day a Red Letter day.
Exciting things are happening at RLPCo!
We’re building a great team and rolling out our first line of cards in plenty of time for Christmas 2010. Between the card samples, printer quotes, logo design and photo work – we’re having an awesome time.
And each step of the way, we are striving to be a 1 Corinthians 10:31 business:
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
