MAKING A SCENE SINCE 2014...
We first made our mark with a little bricks-and-mortar store on North Street in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter (see left; pretty cool right?). The idea was to create a retail space with a personality reflecting that of its clientele; creative, friendly and quirky, and stocking everything the discerning artist needed.
Since then we've transcended the physical plane and now exist in cyberspace, where we're continuing to do what we set out to do. We're still not afraid to break old habits and ideals; the suit-wearing snobbery and exacting elitism of the old art world has been left behind. Welcome to the new wave of creativity; grab your board and jump in!
We're stationery addicts just like you guys. We're obsessed with the smell of brand new sketch books, we relish the pure excitement of buying new markers, and we understand the pain of creasing your latest masterpiece or realising you've left your portfolio on the bus. We've been there!!
We aim to make art affordable and accessible to anyone and everyone. We want you to realise your creative potential by being bold, being brave, and fist-pumping your way out of your comfort zone. And if you get stuck, just give us a shout; that's what we're here for!

WE'RE TOP 7 IN the UK STATIONERY INDUSTRY
In October 2017 Jenn was selected as one of the top 7 young professionals in the UK stationery industry.
The Manchester Stationery Show organisers Ocean Media believe the key to the stationery industry’s future lies with the next generation of up-and-coming professionals, and their brand-new awards initiative is designed to acknowledge these young movers and shakers. The judges from Postmark, B&M Retail, Pentel, and the editor of Stationery Matters magazine had the unenviable task of choosing a selection of 7 "Stand Out" entries from the final 30.
Jenn was the only person from Northern Ireland in the final 30 and was voted as one of the judges star choices while attending the Manchester Stationery show.
