Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the doors of an independent stationery studio? Come behind the scenes with us to see a day in the life for our little team (and our cats!)
This blog post has been adapted from a newsletter - sign up here to be the first to find out about new products, special offers and sample sales!
Our day often starts with a check in from our unofficial supervisor, Dadelaide the cat, making sure our fresh delivery of vibrant UK-printed greeting cards are up to par:
Those local to Peckham will know our little shop attached to our studio is chocked full of our stationery that we rotate with best-sellers and new arrivals.
As well as our own items, we also feature a collection of gifts from brilliant brands such as Coco
jesmonite pots, Pink Stories
candles and so many more! These items are in-store exclusives, so you'll have to pop in to check 'em out for yourself.
Our shop space is small yet glorious, but back in the studio is where the real magic happens!
We're a tiny team each with favourite tasks with complementary skills to get orders out to you guys, as well as our worldwide stockists
. If you spot our products out in the wild at your local stationery, gift or book shop, make sure to snap a pic and tag us @the.completist!
There's no machine here: all our products arrive from our printers ‘naked’ and we tuck them safely into their packaging in the studio.
Staff member Flo's favourite T.C. line is our Daily Planner Books, which are made by a family-run music book maker right here in the UK. They use their recycled music sheet paper to form the inside sheets of the planners - and that's just the tip of the iceberg for our sustainability steps!
Another member of our team Emmi's favourite job is parcelling our Washi Tapes in our signature T.C. tissue to keep them safe in transit. Oddly satisfying stationery brightens every day for us!
A less tasty kind of baking: all our mugs
are hand-printed right here in the studio on a heat transfer machine. The process is intricate and every design comes out ever so slightly unique, with a super satisfying result at the end!
After a full day of packing orders, drinking (definitely too many) cups of tea & coffee, and cat snuggling, that's us done! We hope you enjoyed a little slice of what goes into our Peckham
studio life. We have so much more to show you in the future…
