Bringing you... a stationery subscription designed to make you happier.
Curated by Julie of Bumblebee Press with Circle Collaborative
Stationery to make small practices of gratitude easier.
You're invited to take time for yourself.
The idea behind this subscription is to make small practices of gratitude easier for you by sending letters. Taking just a few minutes here and there for yourself.
Easier to connect and easier to spread joy. Tangible, shareable joy. In case beautiful paper rocks your boat, here's a look at a few pieces in earlier boxes. Join the waitlist to get an email when registration opens.
December's box —5 limited edition letterpress cards, gift tags, stamps & a pen. Each month is different and a surprise!

Imagine Less Stress and Connecting More
Love getting a handwritten note in the mail? It's Just. So. Nice.
Sending a handwritten letter can really change someone's day. Including yours. Taking a few minutes to connect in writing, even for just a few minutes, can make YOU happier.
Half the battle of sending notes is having them when your inspiration strikes. We can help with that.
Simplicity is Priceless
Never Miss a Milestone
Scout's promise, having stationery on hand makes it so much easier to celebrate others, even when you can't be there in person.
Goodbye Analysis Paralysis
You'll receive a curated collection each month, delivered to your door. No more wasted time staring glassy-eyed and lost in the card aisle.
No Time to Shop? No Problem
You have better things to do. Like making someone's day with a handwritten note.
Fall in Love with Paper
Your bestie will love a heartfelt note written on a paper plate. But there's a certain joy with a beautiful piece of stationery... Those are the keepers.
And Gratitude Rocks
There are so many benefits of tuning your brain to gratitude.
But you already knew this. The problem is finding the time to actually practice it.
Make it easier by having your own stationery within reach. The beauty of writing letters is that the kindness is compounded. You'll benefit. And most definitely, the one who opens your letter.
It is like getting a present every month, but even better because you get to share it with people to make them feel special too!
It's fun to send a note to surprise a friend and writing it on a work of art that is absolutely beautiful and limited edition unique!
It’s a way to ensure a little box of beauty arrives each month. And everything inside the box is yours to share...a perfect gift.
The whole box experience is something I love. A little bit of this and that, lovely letterpress, and unexpected things like the slips for a weekly happy things jar
Practicality meets Pleasure
You don't have to have beautiful paper to write a heartfelt note. And you don't have to be a poet. But having stationery on hand makes it easier. It doesn't hurt if it's beautiful, to boot.
And those little practices of gratitude? They add up. For all of us.
I was not sure I would like writing cards/letters and have time for it. But it has transformed my priorities from social media to sending thoughtful, lasting cards and letters. I LOVE sending my loved ones these works of art!
What's in the Box?
Each month you'll receive you a limited edition collection of stationery along with a few surprises.
3-5 mailable pieces.
Folding notes, correspondence cards, letter sheets, postcards, occasions cards, and more. You'll receive different sizes and styles with beautiful paper sourced from all over the world.
2-3 stationery extras
Think gift tags, bookmarks, enclosure cards, field notes. Every month we'll include 2-3 additional pieces designed to inspire you.
Every month is different. All curated to make it easier for you to connect with others... to get inspired, and simplify.
~ Each box has a value of at least $50 ~
JULIE FRANKLIN // Letterpress Printer, Paper Explorer
I fell in love with paper around ten when I was tasked with "organizing the paper closet" at my dad's office. (Pretty sure they were just trying to keep me busy.) Fast forward after few decades of letterpress printing... I still love paper. And a beautiful print, and connecting with people.
And I'm grateful for so much. But I've found that taking the time to write all the letters and notes I'd like to... can sometimes be a challenge. I want to change that. It's the perfect time. And if you'd like to join me, I invite you.
This is the way I always want to buy stationery - made by hand, by a person, not a faceless company.

The paper is luxurious. Even better than Crane which has been my favorite for years.

Choose this stationary if you want the person who receives it to keep it and keep going back to it.
Boxes generally begin shipping the 2nd week of the month.
Some (a good bit) will. But we also have a few good surprises planned for you.
Every box is curated by Julie of Bumblebee Press. We've worked with some pretty amazing artists and designers over the years, and we're excited to share some of their work with you, too.
We love letterpress, so you can be sure that is (very much) in the mix. We're excited about including other interesting techniques that we love and think you will, too.
We're going to include all kinds of beautiful pieces for you.
It's really for two kinds of people. People that crave simplicity and are interested in the practicality of having great stationery on hand. And people that love beautiful paper, letterpress, and design. Sometimes those two people are one and the same... and gender doesn't really come into play.
We do open doors from time to time; the best way to know when registration opens is to join the wait list.
But there are a few benefits to signing early:
- you'll be locked into original low price as long as you keep your subscription. (The price is going up this year!)
- you won't miss out on limited edition pieces
- and you can rest easy that you can cancel anytime
Either way, we're intent on making sure it's a great value and want you to be happy!
Some of the stationery in your box will be limited edition pieces created just for our members. Down the road, we may offer any extras (if available) to you, as a member, first.
If you've fallen in love with a certain card or you're writing more (yay!) let us know. We rely on your feedback to make your boxes better.
We're counting on you to tell us you want, and what you want more of. We're hoping each month brings you more and more favorites.
You can cancel your subscription at any time, for any reason.
If you cancel, you won't be billed again. We want every person that opens our boxes to be happy. That includes you.
It's so beautiful, and it's handmade--I love buying something made by an individual person. It feels extra special. It's my Stationery CSA
Loved the first box! Everything is so nicely designed and thoughtful, it's such a treat.
Receiving something in the post every month that brings you joy and inspires you to pass that on to others is worth it!
Sharing the Love
A letter is a present that can be opened again and again.
Know someone that would want in on this? Feel free to share with your friends, family, and neighbors. Pen pals rule.
We'd love to share this with you and for you to share with others!
