Announcement    Welcome to my shop!

BroganBooks is an ultra-independent micro-retailer specializing in the art of the handmade within the realm of paper/paper products. Right now, the shop's primary focus is on stationery sets/greeting cards of all varieties; sticker sheets; and carved linoleum prints. These make up the bulk of my inventory, and I frequently create new products and listings of those kind.

Every product is a truly one-of-a-kind creation that you will not see the likes of in stores. Each listing is unique. Every card is completely special, and I can assure you that whoever you send it to will not ever have received a note like the ones you can purchase here. It creates a very special experience. Grandmothers love the linoprint cards!

Everything is made by hand. All art is drawn by me. Every card is a unique creation and duplicates are generally not available, except for linocut prints. I am happy to work with customers on custom orders. All sticker sheets are my original ideas and my original artwork. All linoleum prints are carved and printed by me also.

BroganBooks is a genuinely small business with a staff of 1. One cool thing about that is every order is impactful. Another aspect I like to share is that everything you might purchase from this shop goes through my personal, very human hands. I believe there is a very individual and unique connection made with every order. I love thinking that my customers will receive items I made with love, by hand, that then made their way into the homes of others, who will have the very human experience of holding in their hands what was so recently born in and sent out by my hands.

BroganBooks was Initially an exploration of artisan book crafting. Since 2015 I have expanded my expertise and knowledge to encompass hand-paper-making, stamp carving, stationery-making, sticker making, paper marbling, embossing, Gothic calligraphy, and even limited 3D paper sculpting.

All this art is inspired, in large part, by the volume of paper waste which creating visual art seems to leave behind. Products at BroganBooks seek to recycle and upcycle discarded materials as much as possible, transforming them into one-of-a-kind, environmentally friendly paper products which any person would reasonably use in daily life. There are no golden urinals here; I prefer products like stationery sets, bookmarks, magnets, post-it note holders, and of course a significant and varied number of notebooks/blank books/writing books which are all unmistakably hand-made and unique.

If you would like a notebook that looks like it came from a Walgreen's or was made by a machine, I invite you to buy your writing materials there. BroganBooks is not interested in creating mass-assembly, indistinguishable, machine-"perfect" products. We believe that beauty arises from differences. I believe that value derives from uniqueness, and that what cannot be replicated affords us the most fleeting, memorable and inspirational experiences of all.

Welcome, and please enjoy your visit to BroganBooks.
