PAPER IS OUR PASSION
We love all things paper. From choosing a card to wrapping a gift, paper products deliver endless style and possibilities. We intend to promote and inspire gifts from the heart. Putting pen to paper and letting thoughts and feelings flow is an art in and of itself, and an expression we intend to promote. Giving a lovely gift, writing a letter, sending a card, are all ways of expressing how much we care about the people in our lives. The act of giving is often more rewarding than receiving.
Cards – A dynamic assortment of all-occasion greeting cards ranging from cheeky, edgy, modern humour, to more traditional design. From local, hand-crafted letterpress and other hilarious artisans not found in the mainstream market.
Social Stationery – Colourful note cards, beautiful writing paper, thank-you notes, and seasonal sets. We offer custom personalized stationery for the perfect gift. Journals, notebooks, notepads, planners and daytimers to help keep track of your busy daily life.
GIFT & GIFTWRAP
Gifts – An assortment of quality, scented candles, novelty socks, puzzles, games and writing instruments. Choose the perfect gift and have it professionally wrapped, too!
FEATURE ARTIST: CARLA LAM
Carla wandered far from home to find herself through painting. Born in Canada and having lived for a decade in New Zealand, a doctorate in political philosophy and a stable job at the University of Otago was the path to a regular painting practice. The disorienting experience of immigration to a far-flung country was the catalyst in discovering a deep desire to create beyond the academic context. A published author, she’s now back in Canada giving expression to this need to communicate beyond words; honoring the process of change and following where painting may lead.
Carla is now happily using all her academic might in service of other forms of creation. She favours working in oil, creative mark making, and letting the process inform the subject. Cards by Carla is one dimension of a fledgling art business started in February 2018 that has focused mostly on original art work rather than prints, but she is currently receptive to many exciting new avenues.
