Present & Correct

present-correct-stationery

‘We hope to spark a distant memory, make you smile or look at the most mundane in a new, and fonder, light.’ Several weeks ago I went into this charming stationary shop in Angel named Present & Correct. Being a huge stationary enthusiast this shop seemed like a little paper pad from heaven. Present & Correct sell selective geometric stationary by designers across the world. Such as Scandinavian and Japanese imports that look fashionably good and function well, such as geometry stickies, creative paper clips and compact desk trays. Attention to detail in the design aspect and paper quality of their paper and office objects is what puts their collection in a different league to high street or even department store stationary. Vintage gems that have that cool back to school look to 60s office supplies make you want to pick up a pen or organise your desk! Or maybe that’s just me? Take a look at the P&C website if you can’t visit, its super fun to browse through.

Crafty Fox Market

signTwo saturdays ago I ventured into Shoreditch to visit the Crafty Fox Design Market which I had previously heard about but never managed to visit one of their events. For those of you who don’t know Crafty Fox, its a market brand that runs events and trade shows across the UK. It’s been running for five years connecting crafters and designers with savvy shoppers. It’s a bit like Etsy in some ways, slightly more specialised in that there is an application process for traders. Check out their website for information on their upcoming shows and their blog which showcases designers and their products.

I had such fun at the London market, there was a real buzz in the atmosphere! There was a mixture of designers, mainly in jewellery, textiles and stationary. I tended to shop at the stationary stalls as I can’t help myself when it comes to interesting print work! Bought way too many note books and cards, christmas gifts perhaps?! So look out for upcoming posts where I will blog about some of the designers I came across and their work, really inspirational collections! I have already posted about one of the designers, Hannah Rampley. If you haven’t seen that post yet you can click here.

Pleased To Meet

ptmNot nice to meet your or pleased to meet you, or how do you do but ‘Pleased To Meet’ is the name of this stationary/papercraft brand. Based in Berlin, Germany Daniela and Marcel are the duo that co-founded Pleased To Meet – Daniela being the illustrator. Her illustrations are playful and understated that conform to the main look of this lovely brand. On their website you can buy prints, notebooks, cards, wrapping paper, and gift tags all of which are designed and made in Germany.

Pleased To Meet has illustration collections which come in most of the products, I really like the fruit and & veg collection and the city prints which focus on New York, London, Paris and Berlin. Daniela captures the essence of these different cultures through architecture and daily scenes.

I was very pleased to have met these lovely designs that’s for sure!
