Good morning, and Happy Cyber Monday! I’ve got a great deal for you that today benefits a great cause — but like all great deals, I’m pretty sure it’s going to go pretty fast! Meet the very first Writes for Women collaboration, lovingly letterpressed by Founding Board Member Stephanie Clarke of Dahlia Press. Stephanie is no stranger to the growing female empowerment stationery category, as noted in no less than The New York Times earlier this year — and I couldn’t be more impressed with her gorgeous hand-lettered rendering of one of her top-selling digital postcards, letterpressed onto 8″x10″ prints. Limited to just 250, these babies measure 8″x10″ on ultra-thick Colorplan Vellum sheets, white with the faintest whiff of blush.Thank you so much to Legion Paper for donating the stock, and Stephanie is donating $10 of the $20 price to The Ms. Foundation. Founded 40 years ago by Patricia Carbine, Letty Cottin-Pogrebin, Gloria Steinem, Marlo Thomas and Marie C. Wilson, its mission is to build women’s collective power to realize a nation of justice for all. For every woman who prospers, there are millions struggling to earn a living wage, gain access to basic health care, secure affordable child care and participate in the opportunities that should be available to every person in the U.S.
Writes For Women was founded earlier this year by National Stationery Show Manager Kelly Bristol and myself, as well as 23 board members comprised of industry makers and retailers. Our mission is to engage, motivate, empower and educate, focusing on economic and social justice for women and raising funds for social, economic and equality nonprofit programs.
So, what are you waiting for? Pick one up for yourself and your favorite soul sister here before they’re all gone! And if you have a store, these are available wholesale as well.
