Gifts and cards for guys can be tough, but here at Papertrey Ink, we're doing our best to take the guess-work out of creating for the men in our lives! We're bringing you a huge variety of new products today, all suited for creating for the guys we know and love!
Toast to the guys in your life with a card featuring a cold pint of Craft Brew. Cleverly designed sentiments visually read as beer logos and look right at home stamped on the front of our pub glass. Feel free to use the logos on their own for tags, cards, and packaging, where they would work equally as well. The multi-stepped logos will also look constructed with the coordinating dies and dimensional adhesive. The guys will be suitably impressed with your project that they'll raise the first glass to you and your creativity. In guy-speak, that's pretty much the best compliment you can get. So let's go ahead and get our Craft Brew on!
