From fêtes to gratitude, billet-doux has been spicing up mailboxes with one-of-a-kind cards since 2005, then entering the retail space in 2015. By pairing trending style with a unique brand of creativity, billet-doux dreams up pieces that even make wallflowers bloom. Whether creating something from scratch or ordering from readymade collections, all items are made of vetted, high-quality materials. billet-doux’s complete service offerings include wedding suites, personal and business stationery, social correspondence, party and corporate event invitations, holiday cards, event details, baby announcements and valentines.
As a child, I dreamed of… school supplies. I loved everything about them – colors, patterns, scouring for the latest and greatest – and mixing it all together to end up with a combination that was unique to me. This is when my love for stationery began. Coupled with an addiction to romantic comedies and soulful song lyrics (okay, and monster ballads too…) to being coined by friends as the “queen” of catch phrases – I knew I needed to live my life at an intersection of all these passions.
I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect way to honor that little girl – mixed with the tactical grown-up experience from an exciting career as a marketing director – and all the other clues I collected along the way than by bringing billet-doux to life. Like getting to work with your best friend everyday, it’s a brand that’s colorful, fun, elegant and offbeat all at the same time – sort of like me.
Surrounded by inspiring design and colors pretty much at all times – I affectionately called my bachelorette condo a crayon box and now my forever home with my sweet husband and two boys isn’t much different – I thrive on blending trending styles with my unique creative juices to connect hearts and lives.
