Pickett's Press is Turning Five

A lot has changed since our founding in 2008, and we’re thrilled with our brand’s growth in the past five years.

Kate Pickett’s passion for drawing and beautiful paper began at a very young age.  Kate's childhood was filled with art because her mother was an art teacher and routines like writing pretty thank-you notes after each birthday party shaped her love for art and appreciation for fine papers. 
Kate earned her M.B.A from Harvard Business School, but always had her sights set on creating a successful stationery company that would offer the best quality, design and service available.  After the arrival of her three children, Kate started Pickett’s Press in 2008 with a breadth of expertise, enthusiasm and industry knowledge.

Pickett’s Press’ team of six is busy as ever providing fine stationery and gifts. In the years since our founding, Pickett’s Press has expanded our offering to include a digitally printed line and a wide variety of home and gift products. We’re also very excited to announce we’ll be debuting an engraved collection this year to add to our growing repertoire.
But don’t worry, all illustrations are still done in house by hand and all letterpress pieces are still pressed with care.  PP stationery and products are now offered online, at our New York City boutique and at select retailers across the US.
