Classic Stationers

While wandering through the wilds of Etsy (as I do), my eye was caught by the beautiful, traditional-looking stationery made by the aptly-named Classic Stationers. The shop offers a wonderful selection of exquisite business cards, wedding invitations, greeting cards and stationery made by letterpress, embossing, engraving, foil stamping or offset printing. They immediately reminded me of my mother who was never without her own beautifully-made personalized note cards. I can still remember the feel of her thick, creamy cardstock. Looking at these, I think Mom would thoroughly approve!

This was the first of their items to catch my eye, and I immediately wanted to see it in person. I often know I’m onto the right artist or maker by how much I want to touch the works they produce, and Classic Stationers has me itching to get my hands on many of their lovely items!

You can find more information about their process and more pictures of their beautiful work on their website, Facebook, and Instagram.

  1. I love all of them. They also remind me of my grandmother who had her special note cards to send to somebody that she felt was special. I would enjoy seeing them in a small frame on the wall they are just that beautiful.

  4. Gorgeous! They look so tactile. I love whales so I’m particularly drawn to the one that you first spotted.

  5. Oh, this is lovely! I used to keep quite a but of good stationery of my own, and old letters are one of my prized possessions. I often think it’s too bad the whole concept of writing letters disappeared around 1997. Should I print out texts now? Unsure. Maybe I should start writing letters again. I always liked picking out fun stamps to use as well…
