Hello everyone! It is time once again for
HEY PAIS VALENTINES!
I have worked really hard on these and I hope you will like them!
Things are a little bit different this year. For one thing, the valentines are bigger--I'm making them quarter-page size instead of eighth-page. This bigger size makes them more substantial for mailing, and gives you more room to write your message of love.
Another change is that if you order "black and white," un-colored valentines, they will be printed on an assortment of pretty pink paper! I have three shades of pink and one white that will be in each set. You can get them all on white if you want to color them yourself; just let me know.
On to the pictures! Like the last two years, I have two different sets. The first set is regular Hey Pais cat jokes, perfect for any cat lover or Hey Pais fan.
You can get them uncolored, as above, or hand-colored by me with colored pencils. (See the first photo for an example. Colors may vary, but my stripes will always be orange!)
This is what they look like on the back:
The other set is about Star Trek: The Next Generation! The Guy and Girl have been watching this show a lot and I've gotten pretty into it. I drew myself as some of the characters!
NEW THIS YEAR! Envelope sets! Each set contains four pink A2 envelopes, the perfect size for the valentines. They are stamped with the Hey Pais Seal of Approval in pink shimmery ink. You will also get four red heart stickers, but they aren't pictured here because I haven't gotten them in the mail yet.
For size and prettiness reference, here is a picture of my paw with an envelope:
Now I will tell you how to buy these!
Here you can choose whether you want hand-colored (paw-colored) valentines or black-and-white valentines. Remember to pick whether you live in North America or on another continent; shipping is included. In the text box tell me if you want Cat Jokes, Star Trek Jokes, or if you bought more than one set you can get a combination. They get cheaper the more you buy! If you want envelopes, just add that to your cart before you check out. You can get as many envelope sets as you want, just update the quantity on the checkout page!
EDIT 01/19/2011: The response to these valentines has been a little overwhelming! Thank you so much! I'm going to stop orders for hand-colored valentines for a while to see how long it takes me to catch up on coloring. I will list these again if I think I have time to get to more before Valentine's Day! I'll update here on livejournal and on my Twitter. Thank you again!
EDIT 02/01/2011: I used up all the pink cardstock I had left, and the craft store is sold out of the colors I was using! So I am going to have to replace one of the colors with a very pretty lavender for all orders starting today (last night, actually). I didn't get to take a picture yet, but the color is approximately like this:
It will replace the medium pink for the Data cards and the "I saved you a spot" cards. The Worf cards and the "I knead you" cards will also be just slightly darker pink, but still a very pretty pastel. I hope this is acceptable!

Envelopes are SOLD OUT! Thanks everyone for your support!
I hope all of this makes sense! If you have any questions, or you want something special (like maybe you want a full set of Worf valentines because you are a Klingon), just email me! pais at hey pais dot com. I will help you with whatever you need!
Older valentines are still available (2010, 2009). (2009 link fixed now!) If you want any of those, just email me please and I'll set it up for you!
Thanks for reading all of this! I love you guys and I love Valentine's Day!!
