It's easy to adore Studio Carta. The company's dedication to high-quality and vibrantly designed ribbons could make any stationery aficionado smile. Studio Carta specializes in 100% cotton custom ribbons handcrafted in Italy, though their attention to detail blends effortlessly into any desk accessory they create. Yet, to us - it's the story behind the notorious brand that is truly notable.
Social media may have thousands of followers and dominate headlines, but pen pal programs have made a strong comeback over the years. They offer the world a bit of nostalgia as they depend on postage stamps rather than internet speed. In honor of National Letter writing month here are the best groups to join if you want to send and receive a little more snail mail.
A Paper and Grace favorite is the beautiful and versatile handmade paper from Nepal. The variety of designs and textures makes this a go-to for gift wrap and journal making. However, our Marketing Manager, Kelsey Thrush, discovered the unique prints make for beautiful origami stars!
Wax seals date back to before the invention of pen and paper but they didn't gain popularity until the Middle Ages. They were an integral part of signing an official document and sending/receiving letters to ensure that a document or letter wasn't tampered with during its journey. Seals had unique designs such as a coat of arms or emblem that identified the owner which carried the same weight and authority now as a written signature. Typically a seal was destroyed if the owner of the seal died, which is why so few original seals exist today.
If there is one thing you will find on all of our desks - it's a good pen. So of course we understand the importance of an equally high-quality notebook. (Few things are worse than having ink run and bleed!) Are you on the hunt for an environmentally friendly or a thoughtfully designed notebook? We may be bragging, but we have notebooks that are BOTH! We want your notebook to help foster all your ideas and never let your ink run. Read on Friend!
While our Paper and Grace roots might be in stationery, we equally adore finely crafted home goods. There is something about the tangibility that comes from handmade goods, making the corners of our homes feel that much more special.
Our Paper and Grace team definitely believes in being grateful for more than a mere 30 days, but we also believe in a month that reminds everyone that gratitude is so much more than saying 'Thank you.' Gratitude is about appreciating what you have now and is improved through acts of kindness. Though it can be a habit that proves hard in our world.
You might not be surprised to find that we appreciate thoughtful, well designed stationery. There is something about special attention to detail, combined with excellent quality and design, that makes our stationery hearts swoon - and no one does it quite like Katie Leamon.
It's hard to believe that nearly two hundred years ago stamps were first created and today we have an entire month dedicated to celebrating them. Throughout October, philatelists (the original term given to stamp collectors) celebrate National Stamp Collecting month. While some chase stamps monetary values, many choose to chase the stories behind their collection and honor the history of stamps.
We are lucky enough to have so many products that we truly love in our Paper and Grace stores, but one line that always stands out as a favorite for it's thoughtfulness and design is our Traveler's Notebo
We had an absolute blast with Lynn Dolan who stayed in Bozeman to teach four different classes over five days. From realistic radishes to stunning peonies, we learned so much and now have perfectly imperfect paper floral bouquets at our houses.
There are simply some days you want to celebrate with some quick wit or a bit of sass. And, it's moments like these that Paper and Grace likes to turn to a few of our favorite greeting card companies.
