@smallspartan:  some people don’t care to check names (even using social media that’s at their finger tips… ) the torn paper I am at a loss over.. If you sent a gift and didn’t attend I’d think you’re fine.

@smallspartan:  Being that the paper was “ripped” on all four side- if was square or rectangle (I.E. a decent shape)- I’d say maybe this is the actual look of the stationary.  I’m a creative preson and like playing around with different looks- I’ve done the “torn” look for stationary and it turned out cute!!

As far as your name being spelled incorrectly- well that’s just not cool.  People are lazy!

When I was a kid, I’d always rip the edges off paper to make it look old timey “fancy!” Maybe that’s what they were doing?? Can you show us a pic of how ripped it was? This is making me laugh. I want to think the best of them, but there are a couple flags here!

@smallspartan:  Some printmaking or art paper has what is called a “deckled” edge, which is an uneven, almost ripped-looking edge from where the paper pulp is mushed together to make the paper itself.  It sounds like they were going for a DIY version of this.

I would guess it was some weird DIY fail, trying to make the paper look cool.

The name thing, while lazy, is pretty common.  People don’t take the time to check things.  It’s rude but I’ve seen it before.
