Q. There are some things that are timeless, like a little black dress or the perfect martini. What epitomizes “timeless” for you when it comes to stationery? 

A: Black and white letterpress. Always. 

Q. What have you learned about running a stationery and gift business that’s surprised you? 

A: Some people actually want cards that JUST say “Happy Mother’s Day” or “Happy Birthday” — like really people?! But, now we make those too. 

Q: What is the best buy under $50? 

A: Dame, Zee Vibrator $30 — efficient and great quality for the price. Dame is a female-owned and -founded brand that prioritizes female pleasure and wants to dismantle the patriarchy. 

Q: What is your best splurge? 

A: Assouline, Travel Series Book, $95. This book is luxurious and beautiful. Perfect for a nice gift or to treat yourself and looks STUNNING when stacked together on the shelf. We’re addicted. 

Q: If you were a stationery product, what would you be? 

A: A beautiful, double-thick cotton letterpress notecard that says “fuck it” in elegant black cursive.
