If you like to correspond the old-fashioned way, with pen and paper—so much more elegant than email—you have to treat yourself to some Connor stationery. Hand engraved in Paris with traditional hardened steel dies, these note cards and tablets are an affordable luxury that elevate the simple act of writing a thank-you note or letter from an obligation to a pleasure.
Part of the pleasure is that Connor Fine Engraver and Stationer—named for the renowned nineteenth-century New York City stationer John Connors—offers only a limited amount of ready made stationery. Normally, if you want access to the work of the company’s master engravers and stampers, you have to place a costly custom order. Another bonus: Connor is one of the very few stationers in the U.S. to do this type of traditional hand engraving, which gives must greater detail and clarity than computer-generated methods. Among this select group, Connor’s work stands out for its precision.
We’re offering Connor’s rhino-embossed Tablet Box notepad, which comes in the company’s signature slate gray Italian linen box that’s perfect for gift giving. Each of the three notepads—in azure blue, aloe green and geranium red—is engraved with a tiny gold rhino.
Made of extra thick, heavyweight paper that gives even the shortest note a discriminating touch, these handmade cards and tablets mix traditional technique with twenty-first century flair.
