Having a mix of beautiful stationery in your possession is always a good thing – and so Elizabeth Taylor. When I do, I find that I send more “just thinking about you” notes in the mail (instead of cold text messages) which makes my heart happy! Here are a few of my favorites that I will be adding to my collection.
I love these “you had me at hello” cards. So simple and clean, and can be used for just about any occasion. Sometimes I even send everyday notes as birthday or thank you cards because, why not? They’re just so versatile. This shop also sells beautiful wedding invitations, art prints, business cards and envelopes in just about every color.
BONUS: Ashley hosts calligraphy workshops so you can take a turn at scripting! Add it to your bucket list next time she’s in your city.

I’m a big fan of simple typography and letterpress – both of which are key to the In Haus Press design style. Their website has a lot of personalized stationery, cards, gift tags, and announcements. Most are black and white with clean, classic lines. A must-have in your stationery collection.

Deviating from the others in this list, how cool and wild are these cards? Any child of the 90’s would agree. You’ll find that The Good Twin Co is not afraid of color or patterns, as depicted in their cards, stationery and box sets. All illustrations and type are hand drawn.

I found this personalized watercolor stationery because I’m dying over how good the watercolor trend is right now. It’s versatile and can be just as appropriate for a child’s birthday invitation as it is for a twenty-something’s everyday stationery. Allie offers hand lettering, embossing, gold foiling and custom design work in her etsy shop!
I had some of these mini flat cards and went through them in less than a week. You’d be surprised how many little uses they have: gift tags, lunch notes or even a place to write your name and email when you’re out at lunch and forgot your business cards. They come in both stripes and dots – so classic.
In addition, the Stationery Boutique boasts the best handwritten address stamps and calligraphy art prints and cards. I interviewed Jen, the designer, in another post here.
