Curated by Susie Tommaney
When it comes to making a pitch or proposal, thanking a client for their business, or ensuring your message gets read, there’s nothing that compares with print. One look at our e-mail in boxes and it’s easy to see why digital communication just gets lost in the noise. Here’s our curated look at designer stationery, couture cards, journals, date books, pens and more that will make sure important plans and ideas are preserved and your correspondence gets opened first and stays top of mind.
1.While antiquing this fall, be on the lookout for typesetting trays and letters, vintage typewriters, and block printing objects. These artifacts can find new use for storage and organization, or purchase a fresh ink pad and create your own stamped designs.
