You have gone to great lengths to get where you are in life. Your family, your name, and your position are causes for pride and celebration. Consider personalizing your surroundings with items that highlight this love. Not only will personalized accents stand out, but they will make an impression on everybody who sees them.   In times of old, a family’s heritage was proudly displayed on a coat of arms passed down from generation to generation. Many families also possessed a seal which was used to authenticate documents, letters, and other correspondence. In many parts of western Europe, these symbols of tradition are still used to this day.   Monograms go back to hundreds of years BC. Used as signatures by artists or craftsmen, a monogram is an overlapping combination of letters usually representing the initials of a person or business. The traditional 3-letter monogram has a person’s last name in a larger font that is centered. The first name initial is usually to the left, with the middle initial to the right. Monograms of this type are often used on towels, clothing, and luggage.   Class and elegance didn’t die with the Renaissance, they just faded into the background...Read More
The ways in which we can communicate with each other have grown dramatically as we continue to advance our technology. From social media messaging to texting, it is easier than ever to get in touch with family and friends. If you’re looking to make a more personal connection, writing a letter on personalized stationery could potentially make the biggest impact. Anyone who wants to make their letter stand out and showcase a bit of their personality should consider using personalized stationery. In fact, there are a lot of benefits when it comes to using this kind of writing paper. For this reason, it is important that you think carefully when it comes to selecting the right type to make a more personal connection. WHY USE PERSONALIZED STATIONERY? Even though texting and email are the norm in today’s technology-driven world, they are often seen as impersonal. Despite the popularity of social media, studies show that it is actually making us less social. Stepping away from these bland forms of communication and writing a letter on personalized stationery instead can produce more benefits than one might think. Whether you are using it to write letters for business clients or to write to...Read More
While we have plenty of items in fun and fabulously bright colors, sometimes we just need some correspondence in a neutral color. Whether it is for work, or just because you would like something a little more laid back for  a change, American Stationery has plenty of fun items in a neutral palette.

Like our Brown Bordered Correspondence Assortment. These correspondence cards come in four different stunning brown borders.

You will receive eight of each of the four shades and may choose to have the envelopes printed on the back flap with a return address for an additional fee or you may really kick up the...Read More
In our hyper-connected world, with its text messaging, the good, old-fashioned handwritten letter has nearly become extinct. Which is a shame because when it comes to sharing one’s true thoughts, sincere sympathies, and deepest gratitude, words traveling along the invisible digital superhighway will never suffice. Sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationery, your fingers touch the paper, and you seal the envelope. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox. The recipient handles the paper that you handled and they see your personality and individuality conveyed in your handwriting. If you are writing a casual letter to a friend or family member, quality stationery is a nice touch, but definitely not necessary. Your friend is not likely to take note of the excellent texture of your paper. But for some kinds of correspondence, only real stationery will do. If you are writing a love letter, a sympathy note, a thank you card, or a letter of congratulations, you don’t want to send such meaningful musings on paper you tore out of your spiral notebook. Quality stationery adds...Read More

Every now and then it’s nice to stray from the norm. Try something different. Whether that something different is a new food, a new clothing style, maybe even a book. Trying something new gets us outside our comfort zone, which in turn helps us grow. It maybe even allows us to take on a different personality of sorts.   For instance, you may be someone who always has their name on their stationery. Their name is fully spelled out in all its glory. It’s your name you should be proud of it, but every once in a while it’s fun to go with a monogram. If you are typically a script name kind of lady, then changing it up with a bold block monogram on some funky designed note cards, is a great way to change it up. Personally, I typically prefer a traditional design that is something classic and clean. If you are the same then you should take item 2656 for a spin. If you are typically a name toting traditionalist this ultra- modern chevron design shines in trendy yellow and gray. But, don’t let the hip factor fool you; it still says I’m a classic. For $66.00...Read More
While, it is not necessarily what I would call a new year resolution, I have decided that I will start remembering things more. Or, rather start writing myself notes more. So what better way to do that than to use sticky notes? I don’t know if it is a sign of getting older, or simply just human nature? Maybe, I’ve gotten myself to busy? On some days I think we are all a little too busy aren’t we? Even my son’s teacher encourages all the kiddos in her classroom to use notes to help them. And yes, I have been known to stick a note to a backpack with a reminder to turn homework in. With all the uses for sticky notes there is simply no sense in having any of the old boring non-personalized ones.  American Stationery has several different styles of sticky notes.
