About

There's a write way and there's a wrong way

Quick, think of the most important person to you.

They probably conjure up all sorts of warm fuzzy memories, endless laughing, and love and support during tough patches, right? They are pretty darn awesome, wouldn't you agree? For mother/daughter design team, Meredith & Melinda, it's these special bonds that are most important. So, that's why in the cozy, Buffalo winter of 2015, they began working on a small collection of a dozen greeting cards, which has now grown to over 150 strong.

Cards are a strange beast. Some like them funny, some prefer sweet (we personally aim for a happy medium) and some people don't see their value. But we do. Ten years ago, getting an email was more exciting than getting your mail. Now, unsurprisingly, it's reversed and we can think of nothing more magical than a happy little handwritten card waiting patiently to be discovered an loved and maybe even kept for years to come. In fact, we think paper itself is pretty magical. It's renewable, full of endless possibilities and can travel far and wide for mere cents.

The Witty Gritty Paper Co. is a culmination of all the cute and clever thoughts that say the perfect thing for you. Don't feel like you can ever come up with the right words? Don't worry, we have come up with them for you. And we make it our mission to keep finding them, and creating cards and all manner of stationery hoopla that make you feel like the most well-mannered and clever person in the room.

So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for visiting & we hope you'll find something just perfect for that person. :)
