5 Must-Have Stationery Items

Stationery has been a long time object of desire – with beginnings dating back to early Egyptian times (think animal skins), to 105 a.d. with the invention of paper, to current. Our love for sending someone a personal note or card, that reflects our own personalities and also charms the receiver, has never been easier.

We’ve created a small collection of some of our favorites to inspire you to bring more creativity into the world.
