Whether you are planning a party, wedding or bar mitzvah, we can help you. Our custom invitation offering is vast and exclusive. We have a passion for paper, textures and colors, and we will find the best printing method for achieving the desired effect you have in mind. If you are looking for unique writing paper, we are here for you as well.

Our expanded offerings include art supplies, pens, clocks, wallets, journals, candles, parlor games and many more items you will adore.

As a second-generation family business, we are a proud member or our local community, and we strive to create and provide quality items for our discerning clientele.


I have been ordering stationery from Blacker and Kooby, then my neighborhood store, since I was a child. Now I am an adult living across town who over the decades has worked with Vanessa... We have moved through life's phases, and enjoyed a collaborative effort that always has produced top-quality products. Vanessa is a real pro. As a result of her guidance, my shelves at home and work are lined with original, attractive and practical stationery.
