The Stationery Studio 

Stationery Stories is a boutique stationery studio based in Amsterdam.  Hand-painted watercolour illustrations form the basis of each custom stationery set.

The designs can be for birth announcement cards,  wedding stationery suites, dinner party stationery to personal correspondence sets and more. All designs are unique and all wishes can be discussed.

The red thread is the quality of the materials used and the time taken to create something truly bespoke and unique. Your wishes and ideas are therefore key. After all, custom stationery is about you and what story you want to tell.

I am looking forward to hearing your story!

Love, Sally 

The process

Step 1: wishes

My dream Amsterdam studio overlooking the canal is in the works! Would love to meet you in person to discuss your wishes and ideas. If not possible, we can do the intake via phone, video call or email.

Step 2: Sketches

Your personal design starts with your wishes and story. On basis of the intake and brainstorm,  I will sketch out the ideas further. A quick sketch really shows what works and what doesn’t.

Step 3: Painting

Once the general idea is clear, I will paint your chosen elements (e.g. flowers, your house, animals) using custom blended watercolours. This gives your stationery a unique and coherent look & feel.

Step 4: Design

I then scan my artwork and individually cut out all the different painted elements. After this, the graphic design phase starts to create the perfect stationery and add in any typed text.

Step 5: Printing

When you are happy with the final design I will send your bespoke stationery design to my preferred printer who uses luxurious 300 gram paper and manages to capture watercolours perfectly. Test prints available.
