Stationery is having a renaissance, with a new generation of paper fetishists fixated on creating hip, high-quality contemporary correspondence. Many independent card-makers are analog-friendly, using printing methods such as letterpress, a 15th-century invention, with such beautiful results that the e-card seems criminal. Not your typical Hallmark offerings, these selections are available in San Francisco. Buy before the holiday rush to forestall disappointment — many may sell out.
