We invite you to check our hours and shop locally, as we have many more items which we are not able offer here.

 Greeting and Note Cards continue as Primary Product~

In the beginning, Poverello Prints cards were designed by sister artists to showcase their art, style and vision through the affordable medium of greeting cards.  While encompassing the complete line of Poverello Prints cards and going beyond the simple cards of its early beginnings, our greeting card collection now includes full color as well as photographic and watercolor based designs.  Many verses are also original writings of the artists.  Cards produced by Poverello Prints and other OSF artists are featured and make up the largest single product category.  Being the Franciscan Community that we are, Jubilee and Franciscan cards, including scenes from Assisi, are staple items.

Traditional categories of:

Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary, Get Well, Sympathy, Thank You,  Special Occasion, Christmas, Easter and various other holidays remain the most popular. Blank Note-cards and Assortments on various themes are also available. 

Newer categories that are being well received include:

  • Living with Illness
  • Encouragement to Care Givers, and
  • Life’s Moments (remembering someone in times of transition and change, as well as for no particular reason).
