Announcing: "Faith" by Authentique Paper

Soft and free flowing, the first of our Autumn releases is the beautiful "Faith" collection. Not specifically religion-based, rather influenced by spirituality and the calm associated with faith, this line is applicable to many occasions.
As a brand, we create art for the sake of preserving memories. Spirituality and faith are a big part of many people's lives; however, creating a collection for a range of views can be tricky! Just as a picture speaks a thousand words, we feel color can convey similar emotions. The color palette for "Faith" is muted, intended to provide a subtle background for your projects. The designs are rich and striking, to offset the softer color tones. Towards the end of the design process, we felt the papers needed something else...so, we went back and added a pop of yellow. After all, Authentique Paper never does the expected...we put our own twist on just about everything, and we love the warmth yellow added to the collection as a whole! 

We wanted the paper designs to be usable for weddings, babies, family history and everything in between. We are pleased with the way this line turned out, it took on a personality of it's own...and we hope you feel the purity and choose to use these designs to preserve the special moments captured in your life.

"Faith" features six double sided papers, an Enhancements cut-apart paper, a coordinating solid, 6x12 Components pre-cut accent, 12x12 Details sticker, 6x6 & 12x12 paper pads, a Card Making Stack, and the collection kit. Oh, of course, this collection is printed on our signature heavy-weight TEXTURED cardstock!

3x4 cut-apart cards for pocket crafting, card making, scrapbooks & more / Three unique pattern sections so all of the cards are double sided

  8. You know, you don't really have to stumble all over yourself to apologize to non-faith people for having a collection called "Faith". In reading your description to my family, my son hollered from his room wryly, "It's called Faith, but it's not as bad as it sounds!"

    Please.....be authentic, Authentique. Don't apologize. People of faith love your collections whether or not they have "faith-sounding" names. People who are not faith-inclined also love your paper and are not going to be put off by "Faith". This is a very lovely collection, but I soooo wish you had not made a big deal about the name....I fear it has backfired for me, a devout Christian. I wish you had just called it Peace.

    1. Janis,

      Thank you for the reminder of the power words have. Obviously, I wish you could have seen our intentions as motivated by more sincerity than you ascribed, however, we will make an honest assessment of your comments.

      I agree with you that we should not distance ourselves in any way from what we create.

      I'm hoping you can come to see this as a failure of good intentions more than a core issue. I hope you can still enjoy this collection, despite the concerns you had with the language used in our description.

      Thank you again for your insights, kind words and for defending your position. We can all learn from this!

      Bret
