Has your son or daughter gone off to college? Send one of these inspiring Printery House plaques in a little TLC box to encourage them while they are away at school. These also make great gifts for a friend’s birthday or especially if someone needs daily encouragement. One plaque features a chalkboard on part of it…you could add your own message: “Remember to phone me!” and sign your name. All make thoughtful gifts of faith.

“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter: he that has found one has found a treasure.” This scripture passage from Sirach 6:14 certainly rings true. How many times has a friend been a “shelter” for you…talked with you, cried with you, laughed with you, prayed with you and for you. Remember a special friend with a Printery House Thinking of You card. Let friends know you’re thinking of them…you’ll be amazed at the results.
And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Summer is a popular time for weddings and wedding anniversaries. The Printery House offers a great selection of religious wedding anniversary Cards. Bless a special couple on their anniversary with a beautifully crafted card from The Printery House.
Meet Brother Christopher…one of our favorite characters featured on Printery House cards. He is a Benedictine monk who lives at the Abbey, where he does God’s work as a teacher, musician, and calligrapher.
Brother Christopher loves all God’s creatures—especially a little mouse named Benny, who also lives in the Basilica. They met when Brother Christopher was practicing the pipe organ and one of the floor pedals stuck, making a loud bass sound. Benny came to the rescue and managed to wiggle under the organ pedal, just enough to release it. That was the beginning of a great friendship–and now Benny pounces on the organ pedals at just the right times to help Brother Christopher play hymns!
When Brother Christopher writes cards using calligraphy, a specialty taught at the Abbey, Benny often dips his tail in the ink and adds a few words. If Brother Christopher is late for evening prayer, he’s just feeding and tending to all his little animal friends…especially Benny the Mouse.
