Established in November 1963, Blacker and Kooby Stationers has a half a century old history of serving the Upper East Side of Manhattan with quality paper, exquisite writing instruments and related gift items. Over the years we have sold art supplies, toys, party goods and greeting cards. As a family-run business, with a dedicated staff, we strive to provide helpful advice and efficient service to make the shopping experience a pleasant one.
We have learned over the years that we have a true strength in the area of printed stationery and invitations. Only an experienced staff with knowledge of etiquette and elegant taste can properly write up a social invitation to a formal event, or an order of fine personalized writing paper that reflects its owner. We work one on one with clients to achieve this goal.
Blacker and Kooby combines practicality and clean design to personalized orders. We guide each customer through a process to choose their printed order and have it match his or her specifications, both tangible and abstract. Invitation customers can expect creative input and guidance throughout the purchase process.
Along with our printing service, we have culled a treasure trove of our favorite gift items. Please take a moment to search our site, we think it will be worth your while.
My name is Vanessa Kooby, and I have been providing my clients with the personalized attention needed to produce the perfect invitation for their event. My staff and I always strive to provide a relaxed and personal experience for everyone.
I can't say enough about how enjoyable it was to work with Vanessa on this 'project.' She really took any stress we might have had out of the equation. Both my daughter and I feel that she contributed significantly to the joy we have had in the planning of the wedding. We are going to miss working with her after the wedding is over. We will just have to start planning another celebration!
Thank you for your genuine concern, time and effort. You were such a help and I felt secure knowing our invitations, and all that went with them, were in your hands. They were just wonderful!
Working with the people at Blacker and Kooby is always a pleasure, particularly Vanessa. She is a magician; always pulling a new and innovative idea out of her bag of tricks all the while keeping my vision in mind. I can't wait for the next opportunity to work with her and her team.
Menus are beautiful !!!! Love the format and our choice of swiggles. To be honest you have done an amazing job of directing everything from the engagement party onwards....
Thank you again for helping me with the invitations for the Jubilee. We had numerous comments on how elegant and beautiful they looked. The invitations set just the right tone from the beginning.
