About

note•ify is an eco-friendly stationery company based on the West Coast.

My name is Samantha Barsky, and I am a Northern California native. I am the creator behind note•ify, an eco-friendly, city-inspired paper products and soft goods company.

Some of the products I fabricate are note cards, gift tags, notebooks, prints, tea towels, and tote bags, each one donning a photo that represents the world around me.

Originally, I started turning my photos into cards for friends and family. The recipients of my stylistic aesthetic cards encouraged me to sell them in the retail market. Now in my fourth year of business, my products can be found in approximately 50 retail shops around the country.

My first collections were inspired from the photos I took on my families’ farms in Michigan. Then, I decided to bring it a little closer to home by documenting the city I was living in, San Francisco. Because the city collection took off, I made a business decision to expand to other cities.

The feeling of fulfillment comes from creating quality products utilizing my photography, graphic design, and advertising skills. My satisfaction and sense of success comes from the continued increase in my representation in retail shops, as well as from each individual who buys my products off my online shops.

My unique process of altering either my original photographs, or vintage illustrations, doesn’t allow for copying, as someone would have to take the exact same photograph from the exact same angle in the exact same conditions, for instance. I add my signature heart balloon to all of the city images as homage to what that building or landmark evokes in people. Then the cards, for instance, are printed on kraft paper, hence the eco-friendly base.
