I AM A - Modern British Stationery, Greeting Cards and Gifts Company For Stationery Lovers

We Make You Smile

WE MAKE YOU SMILE

I AM A® is a multi-award winning modern British stationery, greeting cards and gifts company. We make you smile through playful design. We love cool design. The kind of goofy, quirky, nerdy cool simple design that makes you gasp, giggle and say, “I love that. I want that!" 

We create super colourful greeting cards, social stationery and gift products. Our product range includes fun paper products including illustrated, hand lettered greeting cards, wrapping paper, desk planners, notebooks; stationery items including original themed pencil sets, well made pencil sharpeners; and cute lifestyle products such as embroidered patches. Our products are perfect for gifting, self use and collecting for stationery and design lovers - never a boring desk.

We love the joy of sending and receiving thoughtful hand written notes; wrapping gifts in lovely paper; taking the time to sharpen pencils and make beautiful pencil shavings; enjoying old fashioned etiquettes and traditions of communication in an analogue lifestyle that brings back nostalgia whilst keeping it modern, unique and playful.

Our pencil sets, wrapping paper book both have won design awards from A Design Award. Our scratch cards from our greeting cards range "Don't Be Blue, Scratch and Smile" are a finalist for "GIFT OF THE YEAR 2018" for the "Greetings & Stationery" Category awarded by the Giftware Association.  

Our products can be found in really cool designer, lifestyle and independent shops, galleries and museums in the UK and internationally. This includes Liberty London, Paul Smith, Urban Outfitters, The Conran Shop and many more.

Apart from our standard designs, we also offer bespoke merchandise for exhibitions and for retail including Carsten Höller "Decision" at Hayward Gallery, exclusive editions retail products for Selfridges in London, Japanese lifestyle chain store Loft in Tokyo, and seasonal pop up at Le Bon Marché in Paris; and corporate merchandise for companies including Fenwick and Hush Puppies.

It is important that a smile and a giggle be part of our end to end processes, from design, production to dispatch – it’s our take on a virtuous smile circle. We want the people who help us make you giggle, to smile, too. This means we make and produce our products with high quality producers in the UK, USA and Japan whilst maintaining environmental consciousness.

We bring that smile back to society too. We partner with a social enterprise in the UK, that trains individuals with disabilities, who packs and dispatches all our products with love and care to you. 

A giggle is priceless; it is included into all our products. So, use them and pass on the smile. It’s all part of our smile circle.

Fancy meeting ya!
