New Arrivals From Mr. Boddington’s Studio

Ice Cream Letterhead

There are few things more precious than handwritten notes. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and habit of texting, but think about how good it feels to find a letter in the mail. There are so many ways we can slow down and put good vibes into the universe. Taking a few minutes out of your day to let someone know you’re thinking about them is a lovely habit to get into. 

It will surprise absolutely no one that we are advocates for snail mail. Paper genuinely brings us joy! We laugh out loud at our card wall and we light up when new stationery shipments arrive. It’s so much fun stocking our shelves with the work of so many lovely artists. 

Today we’re focused on Mr. Boddington’s Studio, a constant source of creativity, color-pop, and whimsy.

Part of the newly released Fine Papers Collection from Mr. Boddington’s Studio, this graph paper letterhead set is perfect to keep on hand for any occasion. A clean, classic design with clever categories and instructions to tick up top.

And for those of you dreaming of an Italian getaway (who isn’t?), the Parli Italiano set. Also part of Mr. Boddington’s Fine Papers Collection, this set provides a cheat sheet of only the most essential italian vocabulary.

Perhaps most darling of all, the Ice cream and Leopard Letterhead Sets, designed for littles or the young at heart. What a happy piece of mail! Again, designed for any occasion and a sweet way to encourage kiddos to get into the habit of sending thank you notes and letters to grandparents and friends. The prompt at the bottom of each letter to list your favorite animal and ice cream flavor is a total bonus.

For more inspiration, Penny Post hosts Correspondence Club on the first Wednesday of every month where all are welcome to come experiment with assorted writing utensils, write letters, bullet journal, chat, doodle, tell jokes, juggle pens, etc. Follow our Eventbrite page for more information on Correspondence Club and other events we host throughout the year. Now go brighten someone’s day!
