Analog tools for storytellers. For every pack sold, we'll send a Story Supply Kit to a kid with a story to tell. 

Story Supply Co. is a stationery-arts brand devoted to creating and selling analog tools that help people tell their story. Design and craft are at the heart of our products. We want products that look and feel good. We want products that inspire artists and makers to capture their ideas, design beautiful things, and share their stories. Story Supply Co. products will also focus on sustainable manufacturing right here in the U.S. 

For example, the product we're launching today, the 3.5" by 5.5" Pocket Staple Notebook, uses cover stock from French Paper Co., a family-owned and operated mill that makes quality papers using 100% fully renewable hydro power they create on site. It uses soy-based inks, FSC Certified, acid-free text stock and it is printed and manufactured right in our hometown of York, Pennsylvania. 

The [Pocket Staple] Notebook

  • Sourced using American-made, sustainable materials and manufactured in York, Pennsylvania. 
  • French Paper Co. Kraft-Tone cover stock - 100% Post-Consumer Content made with 100% Hydro Power. 
  • Cougar Natural Text Stock - 70#, Acid-Free, FSC and Rainforest Alliance Certified and it's Fountain Pen Friendly!
  • Available in Grid, Ruled or Blank. (We will contact you for paper style choices once the campaign is funded).

In addition to well-made, useful and inspiring products like the Pocket Staple Notebook, Story Supply Co. is driven to helping build stronger communities, and we think stories can help do just that. Stories matter. They help us connect and empathize with others. They make us a little bit more human. But most of all, stories, and the ability to tell and share those stories, give us a voice. And that's some pretty powerful stuff.

Currently, many amazing organizations are empowering youth in under-served communities by teaching them writing skills and helping them find their voice. The ability to write, and the confidence to tell their stories, is making a lasting impact in these kids' lives. Story Supply Co. is partnered with organizations like 826 Valencia, 826 Boston, 826DC, 826 Chicago, and 826 LA. And, we are currently looking for more organizations to partner with. So if you know of an organization that might fit, let us know.

Every time you purchase a pack of our Pocket Staple Notebook, we'll set a Supply Kit aside. The more notebooks you buy, the more Supply Kits we prepare. Then, we'll send the Story Supply Kits to our partner organizations, where they will be distributed to kids enrolled in their free, after-school writing and arts programs.

Story Supply Kits will usually include notebooks and writing tools or other items that will directly support the creative learning endeavors of those students.

Help us build something awesome.

We're proud of the Pocket Staple Notebook. Great care went into its design elements and sourcing the right materials to make something inspiring, simple and functional. By pledging, you're doing so much more than helping us launch a notebook.

With your help, we'll be able to place an order large enough to fulfill our mission of creating high-quality and sustainable analog products, while empowering youth who are directly benefiting from the work of the organizations we partner with.

We think you're going to love our notebooks as much as we do, and we can't wait to get them into your hands so you can tell your stories, while helping young storytellers tell theirs.

 Proudly Partnered with:

Risks and challenges

While we do not expect any major mishaps or delays, issues out of our own control may arise due to the specialized papers and manufacturing process we use.

We will do our best to work in advance with our suppliers and manufacturers and keep you updated on the status of the products and our fulfillment of your orders.
