Lets talk stationary. I’ve been trying to venture Katie Alice into the world of stationery for quite some time, and after months and months of unsuccessful attempts my enthusiasm was dwindling somewhat. But I refused to call it a day and carried on relentlessly googling until I found what I needed.

You know that thing about searching far and wide for something, when all along it was right there on your own doorstep.Yeah.That.

Turns out I’d been looking in all the wrong places for all the wrong things! You wouldn't believe me if I tried to tell you just how excited I was to find out there was a company just a 5 minute stroll down the road where a team of people were manufacturing notebooks. Beautiful, hand-bound, fabric covered little notebooks.

The Stamford Notebook Company has been using the very best equipment and traditional techniques dating back centuries to hand bind and cover each of their lovely notebooks since 2013.  Its parent company Speigl Press, founded in the 1950’s, has been able to pass down a wealth of knowledge and craftsmanship in book binding and printing making The Stamford Notebook Company a really special business. Hugo and his team have been stupendously helpful in working out the best way to create their notebooks with Katie Alice designs on them, which has been amazing!

The finished products will be launching exclusively at the Country Living Christmas Fair on the 11th- 15th of November. 

So, without further ado…

The notebooks come in three different designs; English Garden’s pretty vintage floral, Highland Fling’s cosy tartan and stag design and the brand new Pretty Retro design with its bright pastel stylised floral print.

I’m so excited to be able to offer these beautiful hand-crafted British made gifts, especially at the Country Living Fair which celebrates all things British!

We hope to make the notebooks available to purchase on the online shop on the 7th of December and will make it know as soon as they are up!

I hope you like them!
