Your child’s a poet and doesn’t know it. But you see the writing on the wall — specifically, the graffiti he’s scribbled beside the mantel.
Encourage more structured word play with Little Page stationery. Its personalised thank-you notes, correspondence cards, christening and birth announcements, and greeting cards with custom silhouettes are inspired by vintage toys and times gone by. With a choice of bubbly designs (rockets, dinosaurs, boats, ladybugs), they’ve got kids’ tastes to the letter.
Everything’s printed on sturdy artists’ card and comes with recycled-paper envelopes.
Now you’re hot to jot.
