spotlight on romeo + jules

You know how it is – if you had to give up your Blackberry/iPhone/laptop, it would be like losing a limb. I’m exactly the same. Sadly the practice of handwritten correspondence just isn’t done anymore, and the closest you’ll get to a formal ‘thank you’ following a dinner party is a hastily-assembled text message. But if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to show your appreciation or to show you care by putting pen to paper (remember writing… the thing you did before the invention of the keyboard?), then I have just the answer.


London-based Romeo + Jules – a business born of, “boy meets girls who loves stationery. Boy suggests that girl should turn that love into more than just an expensive hobby” – produces bespoke letterpress designs, alongside a range of modern through to classic creations, all with a beautifully vintage feel.


The talented husband and wife team work closely with clients in order to capture their personalities and style, and translate it into a set of one of a kind stationery, through the use of colour, font and texture. If you require something a little more effortless, then their website showcases a variety of affordable designs from headed paper to party invitations to charming notecards. Here are some of my favourites:

How pretty are they? Happily Romeo + Jules are generously offering a 15% discount exclusively for readers of {what you fancy}. Merely give the code ‘FANCY’ when ordering.

So next time you want to send a message that is unmistakably from you, put down your phone and opt for snail mail. After all, aren’t the best things in life worth waiting for?
