Bernard selected the 7 quotes after much research and editing with the desire to share a full range of outlooks and perspectives. The statements celebrate the miracle of the many small things that make up our world, which eventually turn into, or add up to, larger events. We can easily miss these small celebrations, symbolized here by the tiny scale of the messages set in a typeface. The magnifying glass, which comes with this card, helps to see them, but also symbolically serves to remind us that it is our own responsibility to make the effort to discover and appreciate that which is always around us…. The large “empty” frame on the right of the card is the space for the sender to write in their own message. Don't worry - you are not losing your eyesight. Seven profound quotations about "small" things are engraved in micro lettering inside thick engraved gold frames. If you cannot see them, "no problem" as people say these days -- there is a magnifying glass provided for your use (makes it fun too!). The empty frame on the right side is there for you to write in your message (or profound statement) for the lucky recipient. The Bernard Maisner Grand Statement cards are unique in the world of fine stationery. At 10.5 x 7.5 inches, they are giants in scale to what is typically produced in the engraving trade - where small is the order of the day. Difficult and demanding to produce, many individual press runs may be required for every extra heavy thickness 100% cotton fiber card (with the challenge of tight registration as well), to cover such a large area. Bernard manufactures his own 100% cotton envelopes to go along with these proprietary sized cards. Truly unique in all the world.
