Our Handmade Greeting Cards

Through our love of photography and capturing nature’s beauty, we have turned our favorite shots into greeting cards and love to share them with you. Each card features a professionally printed photograph, which we hand mount onto the front.

We also offer the option for some greeting cards to individually hot-foil-stamp “Thank-You!” or “Happy Birthday” directly into the photo. The silver or gold lettering shimmers beautifully in the light creating an elegant effect.

Our Story

Sharing a lifelong passion for photography, high-quality craftsmanship and for nature’s often breathtaking beauty, we founded our company Lavilo LLC in North Carolina in 2015.

Through our blog posts, we would like to share with our readers our favorite locations and attractions and the rich and fascinating history behind them.

We hope you enjoy our site.
