Alright, there's no doubt about it. Valentine's Day is coming. In February every year, couples buy each other cards and gifts and let each other know how much they are loved. It's all about the romance.

Or is it? Romance is cool and all, but February doesn't have to be about a romantic partner. Remember when you used to head to school on Valentine's Day, with shoebox full of candy and red and white notes for all your friends? In my experience, everyone got a Valentine, and everyone was included. Let's not forget that this February 14th!

So whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day, Single's Awareness Day, or nothing at all, take some time out of your February to remind your friends and family (and probably your significant others too) just how much you love them all!

If you're planning on going the note-writing route, Banded Arrow has a brand new line of love-themed cards for you here, (just like we promised in the last blog post). There's a couple of sappy cards, a couple of cute cards, and several patterned cards, if you like to be your own wordsmith. (In fact, the heart-cross pattern card shown above is my personal favorite!)

And, in celebration of all the love, everywhere, the Banded Arrow shop is running a sale until Valentine's Day. With the code VALENTINE15, you can save 15% off of your entire order.

Keep writing and spread the love, friends!
