Personalized stationary is an expensive proposition. A reasonable and adorable way of avoiding this cost is the great personalized rubber stamps available from Sweet Paperie at etsy.com. Get a handful of great color stamp pads (Like tangerine, pumpkin, warm red, and olive pastel, great for the fall season) and you have yourself a great, ever-evolving in color, method of personalizing your notes.
For note paper and gift tags, look to Paper Source where you can find some great page shapes in deep and varied color choices:
Paper Source Ric Rack Card, $6.50 for 20
Paper Source Rounded Card, $6.50 for 20
Paper Source Scallop Card, $6.50 for 20

With these rich fall colors, you might even consider a Brilliance stamp color such as Galaxy Gold, Lightening Black, Coffee Bean Brilliance, or Cosmic Copper. Fun, shimmering, and never the same twice. Even for those who do not consider themselves crafty, this is an easy color-lovers project!
