About

Selfish Necessities

Selfish Necessities is a mother/daughter team who enjoys making things that make us and others happy! Our little shop was opened in December 2013 as a hobby but has turned into so much more.

Although we enjoy discovering new art experiences, we have a passion for playing with paper. Our products show our love of color, pattern and texture, all sprinkled with a bit of whimsy.

All items are designed and hand crafted to fill a need for everyday items that bring a sense of whimsical fun to the necessary, thus the name Selfish Necessities!

We are delighted to be a small part of the occasions our products are invited to attend. Every order that comes in makes our hearts and hands happy!

Thank you for shopping small and with us. We can't wait to work with you!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

We are happy to create custom orders just for you in the colors you desire. If you have a theme and do not see a stamp in our shop, reach out! We have quite a collection and are happy to look through it. At this time, we are unable to personalize with names or dates.

Sizing details

We offer cocktail napkins (5 in. x 5 in.) and luncheon napkins in select colors (6.5 in. x 6.5 in.). We are unable to put polka dots on our luncheon size napkins however customers often buy cocktail paired with luncheon to get the textured look and feel!

Glassine bags measure 4.75 in. x 6.75 in. - perfect for treats and cookies!

Polka Dots or Plain

We just love polka dots but understand that not all customers do. If you'd prefer stamped only, we can most certainly create them for you. Just ask or make note in the Note to Seller section when checking out.

Napkin Colors

We do not have a color chart but all of our napkin colors are shown throughout listings in our shop and are listed in the description. If you would like to see shades together, we are happy to take a photo and share. If you don't know the exact colors you want, ask us! We have an eye for color pairings and are happy to offer suggestions.

All pictures in our shop aim to reflect the true color of the item however monitors and computer settings will vary customer to customer. If you do have a question about color, we do offer samples for purchase.

Ink Colors

All ink shown in our photos is dark brown as it goes with most décor however we do offer black and navy if interested. All orders will be made with dark brown ink unless indicated in the Note to Seller that black or navy is desired.

Amount of Napkins

How many napkins do you need for your event? Industry standards show on average guests will use 2-3 cocktail napkins and 1-2 luncheon napkins. For an event with 50 people, we would recommend a purchase of 100 cocktail napkins.

We are happy to package our products for a gift. Just ask!
