About Us

A collage of custom stationery

Over 39 years ago, our little shop opened in a charming house in Highland Park, Illinois. It began as a result of a local stationer offering less than ideal service to a new mom, who waited without explanation 6 weeks for personalized thank you notes for her newborn. We opened our doors soon after with an eye toward providing hands-on, proactive customer service, an uncommon attention to detail, an outstanding merchandise selection and an unwavering commitment to earn your business by offering value and integrity. Building strong relationships with vendors and customers near and far, we keep adding new lines from manufacturers that seek our shop to be their exclusive retailer. For these reasons, we have become the leading source on the North Shore for stationery and invitations. Perhaps even more gratifying, we are proud to have so many second-generation customers who are planning their children’s events.

Despite our continued growth, we have never strayed from our roots. Today, we are still located in the heart of downtown Highland Park. We offer a huge selection of invitations, stationery, gifts, party goods, wrap & ribbons, and more. Our ongoing pledge to our customers includes our dedication, creativity, and a desire to exceed your expectations each and every day.

Hope to see you soon.
