You’ll never buy a boring steno pad again once you discover the power of good stationery. Mara-Mi’s bright notepads, list-pad sets, and note cards are always in good taste (we also love their non-stationery items — from canvas carry-alls to soy candles, they set a relaxed, lighthearted mood). Lacquer trays, pencil sets, eye-catching binders, and more round out the stylish wares Mara-Mi has to offer. Mara-mi (a combination of the founders’ names, Marilyn + Mimi) was born on a hot summer afternoon over 30 years ago, when a couple of old friends decided to make personal stationery for all of their friends. That bright idea turned into a thriving gift and stationary business with its own design studio, responsible for a broad range of products including social stationery, gift wrap, gift bags & tags, paper tableware, plastic-ware, party décor, desk-top & giftware – all guaranteed to make each of life’s celebrations a little more memorable.
