Stationery in a Mobile World

Stay Classy with Handwritten Correspondence

When did snail mail become such a delicacy?

There’s been a revival of slower, more personal communication lately. After all, when something really matters… the words contain the message, but the medium reveals the sentiment.*

forgetful-gentleman-morning.jpgForgetful Gentleman, the newly-minted online store specializing in contemporary men’s stationery, is the holiday savior for the discerning gift-giver. Arriving in a wooden cigar box with plush velvet lining, the Elephant Card letterpress line is the canvas to transform your words into a Picasso self-portrait. The luxurious matte stationery screams for you to dust off your Montblanc fountain pen and reach out to your loved ones with flair.

All stationery sets include the Gentleman’s Guide to Articulate Writing: a modern handbook for thoughtful written correspondence, which offers both traditional etiquette and friendly writing tips (e.g., say “congratulations” to the groom, but “best wishes” to the bride). The transformation from modern man to gentleman is completed with this Little Blue Book—a leather bound notebook to capture fleeting moments of inspiration.
