writing and designing a colorful life

Haute Papier

A few weekends ago, I had the opportunity through Junior League to see the studio of Haute Papier, a wonderful stationary and letterpress company based in the Washington area. One of the owners, Erin, is on the same committee as me and invited us in to make Valentine's (and make up a missed committee credit!) Haute Papier makes the most beautiful stationary, invitations, and letterpress coasters, and it was so interesting to see the studio up close and try to understand what actually goes into the process of designing, planning, and executing all of the gorgeous paper products that we see in stores.

I've only recently gotten really into appreciating all the wonderful paper products that are out there so I was thrilled when Erin let us know that Haute Papier is doing something similar to a Birchbox, but for paper. Four times a year, Haute Papier sends out their Stationary Subscription Box which includes stationary, notebooks, coasters, pens... basically whatever they are loving that season. Below are pictures from February's box. It's such an adorable Valentine's package! The subscription is $20 for each box, or you can sign up for $80 for the whole year. This would be such a cute gift idea or a treat for yourself so definitely check it out!
