Announcement   Stationery & paper products inspired by the color and shape shifting of nature, the people (and cultures) we meet, travel, and our wild spirit.

In an electronic world, S2 Stationery and Design embraces the push of pen across paper.

Stationery can be a private experience. Stationery can also always be a social experience. Stationery is essentially what you make of it - the card you give to your mom, dad, lover, son, husband, wife, neighbor, friend, coworker, the expensive custom note cards you bought to write messages of thanks, love, gratitude, sympathy, congratulations, and everything in between. It can also be the invitation to your wedding, kids birthday party, house warming, 50th birthday celebration, or even funeral.

That's the beauty of stationery - it may not seem like the biggest deal in the world, but to the person on the receiving end, it can mean the world and to the writer/sender, it can save their soul. Whether that is private or social, you decide, but S2 helps you express those sentiments.

With a variety of hand-made, customizable products, you can send along that small thought, special wish, or simple statement, always offering something as unique as your own words. Working tirelessly for environmental sustainability, S2 thrives on moving emotion, not changing the planet.

So live well and write often – no matter the words, make the message love. Welcome to S2 Stationery & Design!

POINTS OF NOTE:

READY TO ORDER ITEMS:
The items showcased in our shop have already been designed and are available for order.

The cards are made with eco-sourced paper. Many of the materials used to line envelopes and to create designs are materials being given another life. We LOVE to work with handmade paper made by artisans around the world.

COST: Every piece for sale has been made by hand, even with the use of a printer. Please know that S2 Stationery and Design is in the market to create truly beautiful and unique stationery and that requires time, quality supplies, attention to details, full assembly, and amazing customer service.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
If you order any invitation set, you are getting the following:
1. ALL pieces hand made and assembled before shipping;
2. Constant customer service that includes unlimited conversations (email or phone - even if it is just to talk about colors) to get your order as you want.

**PLEASE NOTE** Custom orders are custom and can not be returned or exchanged after printing. If for some reason there is any problem, and it is my fault, I will gladly refund you, or discount you based on the error. If the issue is due to an oversight on the customer's behalf, I will do my very best to provide a solution, however, custom orders can not be refunded or exchanged.

If you're interested in any of my products, or would like to discuss custom orders, please email me. I'm here to talk about stationery, custom designs, and creating something special for you.

Cutting gold glitter for a custom order of the initial stationery except as birthday party invites! Glitter for days...
Cutting out the last few liners for these cards -the paper has been discontinued, much to my unhappiness. Get them while you still can!

About

Write. Often. Regularly. With Love.

My shop officially began with a dream in 2009, but my history with paper and writing started when I was around 5.

When I was a kid, my favorite trips involved going to Citibank with my aunt and taking handfuls of deposit slips so I could make magic copies with the carbon sheets inside. I was also obsessed with visiting the library to earn a stamp on the library card.

When I was a teenager, I had a wall, not with posters of Back Street Boys or musicians, but of scraps from my favorite gift wrap that had lovingly snuggled gifts for me on birthdays and holidays.

When I graduated from high school and for two years in college, I worked at the stationery and paper store Papyrus learning everything about cards, stationery, buying and selling, wrapping gifts, pretty ribbons, invitations, and the art of communication.

In the years after leaving Papyrus and entering the real world, I found other paper stores to love and made card making a hobby-I helped a friend make her own wedding invitations, I designed and handmade another friend's first birthday invitations for her daughter, and I made using a hand embossing tool embossed stationery for another friend for her birthday. Yet, it never crossed my mind to have a business. I just wanted to make people happy with gifts of my creation.

Lightening struck in 2009, while traveling around Italy, after running the Rome Marathon and trying to find my footing after my father's sudden death a month prior. Toward the end of my journey, while in the town of Riomaggiore, in Italy’s gorgeous Cinque Terre, I had a dream that involved me removing a card (that I never saw) from an envelope that was designed much like a pair of tights I had worn and ripped a huge hole in. I immediately woke up, sat up from bed and said out loud, "Holy crap! This is what I am supposed to be doing with my life!"

I'm a huge believer in signs and a few days later, as my plan for my business formulated and started to take shape, I was balling up a bag that had contained my lunch at the Montpelier train station in France and noticed an image of a tree with a circle on it that said, "Le papier c'est la vie". I ripped it off so quickly, and put it in my wallet so I'd never lose it. It currently hangs on my wall (photo above) and it reminds me of the 11 years it took for me to come full circle.

When I got home and told my Mom that I wanted to start a stationery company she said, "I could have told you that many years ago!".

I needed those 11 years to learn and grow and now, I'm here, just where I should be, making what I love for customers that I love working with.

Being a paper fanatic, I work with paper of all kinds - handmade from other countries, metallic, recycled, mattes, glosses, etc. I also work with textiles-laces, nylons, anything that is flexible.

My handiwork goes into every project, so while an item may be printed digitally, I will hand cut, hand tie, glue by hand, and/or embellish with glitters and anything else the design calls for. I also hand sketch any illustrations necessary for an invitation or piece before it is imported into the computer and tweaked before printing.

I am committed to my customers and myself to provide the most unique social stationery. I want you to shine through every piece designed - my stationery should help you tell your story. Simple, elegant and thoughtful, it's the S2 Stationery and Design way.
