I bought these cards with the sole purpose of framing some. The artwork is beautiful and bright, and they look great hanging in a frame above my desk. The other four cards (there are two of each color) have made wonderful notecards to send to my family and friends. They are thick and high quality (but still only require one stamp). Yes, they are a little pricey for notecards, but the quality is top notch. I'm highly recommend!
