If you love giving and receiving handwritten cards like me, then Paperie is your place. It is one of the hidden gems in Nişantaşı. To find this wonderland, walk down the street next to The House Café Corner and turn first right.
Founded by graphic designer Zeynep Sümer Ayverdi, Paperie is a colorful paper boutique with the motto “Write Live Create”. Here I can find cards for every purpose in various sizes and colors. Looking for a classic card to congratulate your friend on his or her new job? Want a big, sarcastic, funny greeting card for a 50th birthday? Searching for something more extraordinary like a pop up card? Paperie has them all. Furthermore, they can design the personalized card in your mind or you can choose one of the DIY cards.
Paperie also sells creative and original envelopes, gift wraps and ribbons perfect for those who are detail oriented. You can find cups, coasters, cloth bags, seal stamps and stationery too. In the era of digital, Paperie reminds me of the beauty and importance of handwritten thoughtful notes. Print is still alive.
