Tell us about your business.

Growing up I was an avid pen pal and collected drawers full of stationery to fuel my letter writing habit. As an adult, my stationery bin wasn’t as stocked, and I found myself squeezing in trips to the gift store before birthdays and baby showers. I thought sending a few handpicked, letterpressed cards each month -- complete with postage stamps -- might be just they way to get folks practicing the art of letter writing again.

What makes your business stand out?

I’m happy to say that Nicely Noted helps people discover new designers and enjoy the convenience of having the perfect card on hand. You can look forward to receiving a new collection each month and passing the joy along to the recipients your letters.

What's the best business advice you've received?
