It’s easy being green

Two Hands Paperie has always kept the environment in mind when selecting bulk stationery and envelopes to offer our customers. We’re happy to say our packaged, blank stationery is 30% post consumer recycled, but we’re even prouder to now offer a selection of 100% post consumer recycled papers! It makes us happy to go green […]

Colorado Pen Posse at Two Hands Paperie

We recently had the privilege of hosting a meeting of the Colorado Pen Posse at Two Hands Paperie. The meeting was fast and furious with everyone discussing pens, ink, and paper of every sort non-stop for hours- members, Two Hands employees, and customers alike. What is the Pen Posse you ask? It is a group of […]

Mail Art Madness

Here at Two Hands Paperie, we’re antsy for a little March Madness of our own. No, we’re not opening a line of decorative foam fingers and hand felted basketball hoops.

From Digital to Analog- Returning to Letter Writing

It seemed that the PDA just no longer felt right.  I have also recently helped a few customers purchase letter writing materials- paper, envelopes, pens, […]
