Founded by former Sunday Times Style jewellery editor, Alice Edwards, our vision was to make stationery as beautiful as it is accessible. Years of searching for the perfect paper and cards (and several pay cheques later) had presented Alice with two dilemmas: traditional, high quality stationers often required large orders for anything personalised; and the lack of decent greetings cards.
The solution? To create her own: illustrating plain pieces of card with delicate watercolours and hand-drawn sketches, or personalising them with her initials. As friends and family began to request their own bespoke writing materials, an idea began to form.
Many months of research and plenty of calligraphy practice later, and here is Memo: beautifully thick writing paper and note cards, with matching or contrasting envelopes, as chosen by you. Personalised by hand, they arrive in packs of ten - so you can find joy in a fresh colour way or design when the mood strikes you. Together, of course, with timeless greeting cards for every occasion.
In an age where communication is more transient than ever, Memo is designed to elevate the art of putting pen to paper. We hope it inspires you: to record, and to celebrate, life's special moments...
