Save 20% During Penny Post’s Haute Papier Trunk Show!

We are very excited to announce that starting September 8, Penny Post will be hosting a trunk show with Haute Papier! Haute Papier is a custom design and letterpress print studio based in Washington, D.C., and for the first time ever, everything will be 20 percent off!



Stock up on personalized stationery, notepads, gift tags, thank you notes, and so much more. It’s not too soon to start thinking about holiday gifts, and if you ask us, it’s always a good time to enhance your own correspondence supplies.



This year is a doozy. So many faces we won’t get to see in person, but so many ways to feel close to those who are far away. We are all finding ways to make it work. Sending and receiving notes in the mail has been one constant source of joy through all of this. And having lovely things to write with and write on make corresponding even sweeter.



With holidays rapidly approaching, we are all looking for ways to make things feel festive, even if they’re far from “normal.” If you’re wanting to dish out extra special treats to neighbors and friends for Halloween, or you’ll be mailing/dropping off holiday gifts, there are so many fun holiday-themed gift tags to choose from. The tags themselves can be gifted, or you can stock up for yourself.



Haute Papier specializes in all things custom, whether you want to send one-of-a-kind stationery to your grandkids as a sweet gesture/hint, or you’re celebrating a milestone from afar — this trunk show is for you. You’ll find loads of options for all ages and phases of life.



Perhaps their most popular stationery set, the silk stationery boxes, are so beautiful. Each design is more gorgeous than the next. A full palette of options. A dream gift for the paper people in your life, and a fine way to treat yourself.



Keep your eye on our website in the coming week for more information, and feel free to email us at to schedule an appointment with our invitation specialists to look through your options! The trunk show runs through September 22, so be sure to make your choices by then!
