It’s no secret that I really love my stationery. Be it striped, spotted, chevroned or emblazoned with abstract blobs and floral borders, I’m into good old fashioned paper and pens. Writing letters, thank you notes and making weekly plans seems far more satisfying when there’s a jazzy print and a touch of foil lettering involved, don’t you think?
My new friends at Papier know plenty about stationery, creating beautiful sets that continually catch my eye, but they’ve also gone a step further. Papier not only collaborate with talented and well-known designers to create limited edition collections, they also offer a bespoke service, meaning you can personalise any set to suit your tastes and interests.
Founded in London in 2015, Papier are into the idea of making stationery meaningful, allowing customers to connect with beautiful art and design, but also with the art of letter writing, correspondence and so on. By lending anything from weekly planners to wedding invitations a personal touch, this purveyor of modern stationery takes pride in posting beautiful things with your name on them.
I love the minimalist pastel offerings as well as the brand new Matthew Williamson collection; a marbled, tropical-looking set that’s just perfect for party invitations. All printed on quality Mohawk paper, which is made here in the UK using non-polluting, wind-generated energy, Papier offer anything from notebooks to birthday cards and everything is totally customisable.
I especially love the way this independent company carefully researches and selects talented illustrators, designers and studios to collaborate with in order to create their unique collections, so I’m thrilled to say that Papier will be making an appearance at my upcoming event this year.
Look out for exclusive goodies from Papier at YOUNG GOLD TALKS on 12th November and browse the online shop to make your stationery collection, event invites or correspondence with your pen pal just that little bit more special.
