At our social on Saturday, an attendee asked where they could buy excellent stationery. The obvious reply was "From us!", but we have friends and neighbors on the Internet who are also great resources for amazing stationery. Our letter-loving compatriot, The Missive Maven, listed a wonderfully comprehensive guide to her favorite sites, but I'd like to make some additions.
Paper Pastries - The source of the custom stamps in the photo above. Margaret also offers calligraphy services, office supplies and a full line of wonderous products that I have a hard time keeping out of my shopping cart.
GREER - My homebase stationery store in Chicago also has a premier web shop. I just sent my mother shopping on it the other day because she needed "the world's best baby card." You can also find gifts here of unparalleled excellence. If you get a present from me, it most likely came from Greer.
Saturday Morning Vintage - My mailart runs towards the collage side of things and I am obsessed with using vintage items. There's nothing quite like that aged quality. The paper pack selections here are particularily good.
European Paper - The name says it all. The blog often has a lot of contests and specials happening.
So between the Missive Maven's list and my additions here, no one should be wanting for stationery. These are the best of the best places and I'm happy to be a part of them. Happy shopping! Pretend it's for back-to-school. For some of you, I'm sure that's even true.
