Comments about Shop NWF - D2C for Blue Heron Card:
Product Comments: The picture of it literally took my breath away, and it's better in person. It seems to have struck a similar chord with our recipients. We got many comments on it, from its appearance to its message. I was very grateful it was not religious. Everyone from Solstice-worshippers, to Christians and simple nature-lovers have loved it.
The reaction from most of us was unusual for a holiday card: It was sobering. If I had to sum it up, I would say it stopped people in the middle of the hustle and bustle and induced a stillness, followed by reflection. There is a fervent desire for serenity after all of these wars and conflict; militarism and austerity; terrorism and economic collapse. Violence, poverty, deprivation, torture and the seeming abandonment of what we thought were universally-shared values. The careless or deliberate destruction of the environment, discrimination of all sorts and hatred and an almost gleeful greed and indifference to so much suffering.
I want the artist to know that for a minute I was in the marsh, with the heron, and I felt joy and comfort and empathy. Joy can still happen if our mantra is "peace," and we practice compassion. Thank you for that reminder.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Product Comments: These cards are nice and large, and the embossed heron is even prettier in person than it is online. A very elegant looking card that evokes the sentiment on the front, Peace.
Service Comments: Very fast delivery, emails informing me of the steps along the process were appreciated.

Product Comments: The picture in the catalog doesn't do these justice. They are large, elegant, serene, and lovely. I liked the look of the owl, too, but a creature that predatory just didn't seem suitable for a Christmas card.

Product Comments: I bought them for a gift for my daughter and son-in-law, who are starting a new pub and grill with the Heron in the name. It's perfect!

Product Comments: This is a high quality card. The paper is beautiful and the image of the heron in flight is lovely. The sentiment will work at any point during the holidays and great when you don't want a specifically Christmas message.
