New Avery and Martha Stewart Line

When I saw the new Avery and Martha Stewart collaboration (it’s pretty much perfect) my first reaction was “FINALLY!” I remember looking around over five years ago for good basic organizational office supplies. There is definitely lots of “pretty” stuff out there but it is usually expensive and has too many polka dots. I wanted things that were priced the same as regular office supplies with clean and classic details. I even started my own label company (RIP Stuck Labels) because I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Avery is really good with new technologies so it’s a nice marriage of taste and technology. I will definitely be using the labels for parties and weddings. The line will be available at Staples stores in February but it looks like you can buy it online right now. What do you think? Do you like it?

    OMG. I am beyond excited! These are perfect. I agree with you about it being difficult to find great looking office supplies that don’t break the bank. I’m someone who will spend an hour in Staples – no problem.

    OMG – YES! I am a office-less office supply junkie! I’ve been trying to make-do with the Marthat stuff at Michaels (that’s designed for scrapbooking, I’m pretty sure), but this is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Once again, Martha to the rescue!

    So true- it really is difficult to find good basic stationery. Whenever I do find something I’m into, I tend to stockpile a whole lot more than I need. Thanks for the tip.

    um, i’m sorry, but i think you and stuck labels were the inspiration, jordan.
    don’t you recall that msw post about your line?
    martha can’t think of everything, though it is nice she brought your rippled edges to the masses.
    you are so unassuming!
    i, for one, have really taken to you.
    for example
    for a 1950s-1960s themed prom party this nye i went to town with the frilly crepe paper streamers of utter beauty and i confess, they are still up & will remain so forever
    for my sister’s april wedding, i plant to start two traditions – a celtic couple’s lovecup to celebrate our 1/2 irish heritage, and a polish chandelier to flaunt our polish origins
    see? you are really elevating everyone’s game

    I’m just organizing Santa’s christmas letters with label and saw your post. Love it. How I wish Martha’s line were in Sweden. And yours?…international shipping, I’ll check? Very cute.

    Yes! Agreed: FINALLY! Cute labels and supplies are hard to find and all I want is basic, timeless, that wasn’t so much to ask, was it? Thanks Avery and Martha!
