Salutare is the Latin word meaning: to greet; to wish well; to send your regards; to say hello
From gorgeous watercolors celebrating true love, to cartoons depicting the humorous side of family life, to sketches that touch on the divine, our diverse collection of cards are meant to be more than a formality. When people are shopping for or receiving our cards, we hope there is a "Salutare moment". A moment of grace.
Artists are the heart of our company, the soul of our creations. Every sketch, every painting is created in prayer and in union with the Holy Spirit who is the inspiration behind these works of art. Currently Salutare is printing the works of 5 artists. Amie Kieffer of Eagan MN, Brenna Kielty, 16 year old student from Maple Grove who attends Chesterton Academy, Kate Kellar of Rogers MN who currently attends University of Mary in ND, Blake Van Oosbree of Long Lake MN, a recent art school graduate, and Anne Sullivan of Maple Grove, MN, is the graphic artist with the finishing touch.
Enjoy sending cards and writing thank you notes with beautiful stationery. The process of opening a note, feeling the paper, holding and writing with a pen is a serene experience. Then seeing the imperfection of the writing, reading the message in another person’s voice, you actually feel like you have a piece of that person in your hand.
Join the Mission! Birthdays, the Sacraments, and other occasions are times for the whole community to celebrate. While we can't always give gifts, what a joy to send an extraordinary card that is both fun and formative. Stationery is an affordable luxury. Make someone's day by sending a card!
With every purchase from Salutare, you are supporting an artist. The more cards we sell, the more our artists are able to create.
Thank you for visiting our shop,
